    Why did this guy drop Nazi refrences in my thread? What a dick. :D

    Well, the way I see it, gun control helps criminals more than it does innocent citizens. Many drugs are outlawed in this country, and that sure as Hell doesn't stop people from getting them. Why would guns be a whole lot different, you know?

    I wouldn't be against a lot of the kind of polices you're suggesting, but I'm skeptical about how useful they would really be.
  2. they'd be shit to enforce, but having them there would at least deter a few people, you'd also have the "if you're such a damn patriot why is your 6 year old holding a gun, that makes you a felon" argument,

    if there were background checks at gun shows then that would at least stem the flow of guns to criminals a bit also, they could still get them, but it would be more of a challenge

    setting up some sort of chain link fence just to deter the most minor of offenders would at least stop some people

  4. is that gas, spring or whatever on earth you call the third sort of action?

    I can never remember the third one

    I know ak47's are the spring one

    m-16's are the gas one

    and old tommy guns are the third one, I can never remember the word for that one though......
    or what the actual designations of any guns that fell into that class are....

    soulrebel51 i's a folkie.

    Unlike most Americans, I support the constitution that was written by our forefathers.

    vote for the Guns & Dope Party in the 2008 election. I know I will.

    ak is a gas operated no such thing as spring operated unless your talking about air guns.
  7. blowback rather

    I also suppose I mixed up the guns, it's been awhile.... single\bolt action fan....

    blow back is still gas operated since is gas pressure blowing the case rearward then pushing the bolt back . is just a simpler form of using gas instead of a bleed point and using a gas piston to push the bolt back.
  9. so the spring that pushes the thing back forward has ABSOLUTLY NOTHING to do with it?

    gee, I'd think it's fairly critical

    I suck at nomenclature, I think in pictures, tough shit

    Gee. I think in hardware design. I thought that spring helped control the speed that the casing is forced rearward by the gasses.

    I still say, "Gun Control, means being able to hit your mark EVERY time.
    6 out of 8 at the range.

    correct.. also the weight of the bolt in a blow back system .

    If you're referring to SpliffVortex, he was trying to illustrate how Nazi gun laws lead to tyranny in Germany during the 1930s and '40s, and ultimately, the deaths of so many whom the Nazis would deem as subversive. The Nazi images included are from the Jews for the preservation of Firearms Ownership, which as part of their education package includes "in your face" images of why gun control is disasterous. You'll also see that they are not only concerned about Jews, but about all opressed people. Check out the image included in entry #37. I seriously doubt that he was trying to be a 'dick'.
    I agree with you on these points. Whenever you make certain activity illegal, all you do is send it underground.

    Okay... but generally, when people talking about politics bring up Nazi references, all they're trying to do is demonize the people on the other side of the issue, not the other side of the issue itself. That's just not nice. :D

    I only read a short bit of that page, but those people sound pretty much like liberatarians to me. :D

    I bet you wont scream gun control if you had a mob like in New Orleans trying to break in your bissness or home for some food or water or right down plain theft. or with intentions to take theyr frustation out on you and your family.
