Banning guns protects kids? How are those gun-free zones working for you?

That doesn't stop kids from finding their parent's guns, taking it to school and killing other kids does it?

People breaking the law are -BREAKING THE LAW-. Please explain to me how banning assault rifles will stop someone from killing people. They're either going to buy the exact same gun illegally (which many of them currently do; IE the high-cap magazine in the aurora shooting) or find another way to kill people (which many of them currently do, IE the Boston marathon bombings). Banning weapons only affects the people who already follow the law, and they're not who you're worried about.

Why do you need an assault rifle? Why do you need anything more than a pistol for self defense and a hunting rifle for hunting.

The second amendment was put in to make sure that the people as a whole remain stronger than the government, thus avoiding the possibility of a dictatorship. It has nothing to do with hunting.

The founders never imagined tv which can sway people's political opinions to those who have the most money, nor the internet which can defame people rapidly. The first amendment still applies to those, right?

If you're gonna make an "assault rifles didn't exist in the 1800s" argument, it's rather irrelevant. The entire bill of rights goes after the same purpose of "the government should be limited in power and the people should be stronger."

Actually yes it does their is no formal body that decides what is a part of the English language and what is not, which is strange most languages do have a formal body that decides that. Anyway digress the closet thing too that system for English is dictionaries. The UK uses Oxford and the US uses Webster. Plus it is quite obvious to any English speaker that there are differences between the way English is spoken US/Canada, UK, SA, NZ/AU.

Son, that there is an AR15. Albeit, one of the fully-automatic variety. I also heard that the gun legislations never passed so please point me to the source where assault rifles have been banned.

i do think that is still an m-4 judging by her size and how big it is compared to her, m4s, as you know are smaller, and not banned i guess but:

It has been unlawful since 1934 (The National Firearms Act) for civilians to own machine guns without special permission from the U.S. Treasury Department. Machine guns are subject to a $200 tax every time their ownership changes from one federally registered owner to another, and each new weapon is subject to a manufacturing tax when it is made, and it must be registered with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in its National Firearms Registry.

To become a registered owner, a complete FBI background investigation is conducted, checking for any criminal history or tendencies toward violence, and an application must be submitted to the ATF including two sets of fingerprints, a recent photo, a sworn affidavit that transfer of the NFA firearm is of "reasonable necessity," and that sale to and possession of the weapon by the applicant "would be consistent with public safety." The application form also requires the signature of a chief law enforcement officer with jurisdiction in the applicant's residence.

Since the Firearms Owners' Protection Act of May 19, 1986, ownership of newly manufactured machine guns has been prohibited to civilians. Machine guns which were manufactured prior to the Act's passage are regulated under the National Firearms Act, but those manufactured after the ban cannot ordinarily be sold to or owned by civilians.


and seeing how an assult rifle is defined b being able to be full-auto, the above applies. (yes the 19994 ban did expire but the other did not)

One could also argue semantics, though, what is the legal definition of a "machine gun" and "assault rifle." I did hear from somewhere that the term assault rifle was simply some arbitrary term used by people looking to ban the same type of weapons the average american can buy today.

When I hear of a "machine gun" I think of a crew-served weapon. To make this clear, I'm in no way against you, just trying to get that part out of the way before it comes up.

no i understand, but the legal definition from the encyclopedia of Britannica is in short
"An assault rifle is a selective fire (selective between automatic, semi-automatic, and burst fire) rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine."

the thing is, is people dont understand the differences between assault rifles and rifles that are modified to look as such.

banning them will do nothing because they are basically already super hard to get.
it is honestly like no lawmaker or lawyers have done their homework.

Here's a little thing to think about...   
   
ALL "mass shootings" (where the assailant was carrying a firearm of some sort, with a total of 4+ civilian casualties as a result) since 1950 were in labeled Gun Free Zones.  (Meaning that it is illegal for a civilian to carry a firearm into that zone, licensed or not)   
   
There have been several more attempts at mass shootings that fail to be recorded in the statistics that gun control advocates use, because they tried shooting up a place where their targets could shoot back.   
   
Also, I'd just want you to take note, the last time we tried to ban something that was a pretty large part of society, (ie the Prohibition amendment) the black market boomed and everyone was buying it illegally to the point where we had to stop because it only made things worse.  America, unfortunately, is in the unique position in being a black market central hub, where banning something as a whole (even something small such as high capacity magazines) is entirely ineffective, and the only true way proven to counter this is literally putting it at gunpoint of people who buy guns to defend themselves.

Every law gets broken at at some point so, by your own logic, why bother having laws at all?

Law enforcement exists for a reason....not all cops screw people over.

I'd rather have armed citizens to prevent an attack than to rely on police to stop the shooter after he's killed several people.

But I'm not saying all laws are hindrances. Law maintains order and productivity in society, and of course, a criminal disrupts that because laws are irrelevant to them. We stopped the prohibition act because we couldn't know where the alcohol was going and who was making/owning it, and that was a severe risk.

All I'm trying to say is that it shouldn't be outrageously difficult for a legal citizen to obtain a higher capacity weapon when outlaws can get them with ease or simply steal it from a legal citizen. It provides a distinct disadvantage, and more casualties would be the result. (Refer to post #649)

You're true on some occasions. My friend was caught smoking weed, this is in Idaho so the cops are strict about that, and the cop give him a lecture on drug abuse and how it can ruin your life, then he asked for a joint and dropped him off at his house telling him to stay in school and get his work done, then have time for weed.

it's a bad idea to ban either one.

kindersurprise is delicious and wonderful, AR-15's make excellent home defense weapons.

and teaching kids how to handle firearms SAFELY is a very practical skill and teaches them a lot about responsibility outside of the realm of guns, too.
