Are you in favor of bombs being legal too? Ive never been able to understand where and why people draw the line, but clearly there is a line and most people are fine with it, no one is marching for the right to own bombs, grenades, etc.

Automatic weapons can inflict a lot of damage in a short amount of time, personally i would draw the line there.

 

Here's another thought on that.

 

Rifles have a purpose. Hunting. Handgun's have legitimate self defense uses. Shotguns are used for both.

 

Automatic Rifles are simply human slayers. They have no other purpose than warfare. Of course a lot of people just like them. But that's not their utility.

Actually yes. As long as you store it correctly.

Automatic weapons can inflict a lot of damage in a short amount of time, personally i would draw the line there.


Actually that isn't true. The military uses them mostly for covering fire. Keep in mind that everything you think is too much (except for nukes) is legal to the general public. It's just that they are hard to get. Crimes were such items were used were few and far between even before they were restricted.
Scripture, facts, stats, science, and logic is how I argue.

And Lamborghinis are nothing but speed limit breakers and therefore should be banned. Machine guns are used for covering fire. And in order to do that you'll need a gun that weighs 29 lbs and a long 200 round belt.

Penalty. False Analogy. Used twice. 5 Yards.

 

I'm not even necessarily for banning assault weapons. I just think moves like this are a little over the top.

What's so over the top about repealing the NFA?

False analogy. You're conflating a sports car that can break the speed limit which is illegal to assault rifles which can kill people which is also illegal. It's not equivalent morally. Speeding vs slaughtering a dozen people, so it's a false analogy. Or apples to grenades if you prefer.

The hearing protection act would be good for everyone. The shooter, your neighbors that get annoyed when you go out to shoot, etc...
I'm all in favor of repealing the NFA. Restricting short barreled rifles, for example, makes no sense. Other than gaining maneuverability, a short barrel doesn't make it more lethal.
We should be allowed to own machine guns, but (I know there's a BUT) I'd want whomever buys one to demonstrate competence before they're allowed to walk out of the store with it. A lot of folks can't handle automatic fire, and that would make that person unsafe at the range when we go to shoot.

Things like suppressors (silencers), automatic weapons, short barreled rifles and shotguns, etc. Repealing the NFA would make these items as available as a hunting rifle or pistol provided that you pass a background check. The Hughes amendment bans any automatic weapon made after 1986 altogether. While the few gun rights advocates sign these petitions I'd like to hear why these laws should remain on the books. No one has yet gave a good answer when I asked elsewhere. Here are the petitions.

LOL...you not very bright.

 

Why you say it isn't about practicality of purpose; hunting, but rather because "you want it" and yet you cite making these weapon types and modifications available for hunting use?

Not only do you contradict yourself but you obviously don't know a fucking thing about guns or hunting.

A silencer is lame, impractical and dangerous for use on a hunting weapon.

It greatly reduces muzzle velocity and to be truly effective you should use rounds that don't exceed 800-900fps muzzle velocity therefore limiting range and stopping power so it is an asinine modification for hunting.

 

An automatic weapon for hunting...LOL

any hunter that would ever consider using a full auto weapon is a moron. Have you ever fired a full auto weapon?

I have, MAC 10 and an AR15, full auto is VERY fucking hard to control and in a hunting environment asinine, dangerous and horribly inaccurate

if you can't cleanly take down your quarry with one shot, you have no business hunting.

 

short barreled rifles and shotguns for hunting....LOL

talk about limited short range and poor accuracy.

 

not to mention that every one of those modifications were specifically designed for combat weaponry, not for hunting.

only a dumbass would think those features apply to hunting weapons.

 

 

for someone who goes on and on about gun rights and shit you really are completely ignorant of the actual topic.
