I don't see the problem with background checks, and low capacity magazines. Fuck, even make assault weapon owners take a class on how to use it. In reality, it takes less than half a second to reload for a trained shooter. Which is what many NRA member claim to be.
Seems like all three are a reasonable compromise to me. Law abiding citizens lose no rights, psychopaths have a harder time doing evil things

Yeah, we do lose rights. I'm not American. I don't personally own guns. But this infringes on the American 2nd amendment. Look at what happened with Dorner. Cops opening fire on anything that vaguely resembled his truck. People need a right to fight back against that. I'm sorry, but a bolt-action savage with 5 rounds won't do the trick. If it takes an AR-15 with 30 round mags, then it takes an AR-15 with 30 round mags.

Did I say ban assault rifles?

You said low capacity, I was addressing that.

I also said it doesn't take long for someone trained with the weapon to change mags. Like really, less than half a second for a speed reload,, maybe a second or two for a tactical reload
User avatar #428 to #417 - teoberry (04/22/2013) [-]
Yeah, but that half a second could cost your life. The more bullets I'd have in a gun the safer I'd feel. 5 or tens rounds is definitely not enough.

It could, but you're not going to get it perfect. The only reason they give us 28 round magazines in the military is to increase our capacity to carry ammo. Just in case

The Gun-Control Bill would not have stopped the shooting at Sandy Hook.   
There was a similar assault weapon ban when Columbine which didn't stop it from happening.   
Australia banned Automatic and Semi-Automatic weapons in 1996.  Gun related crimes dropped drastically, but other types of crime rose dramatically.   
   
Criminals can and will find ways around laws if they intend to do harm.

I'm not saying ban assault rifles, fuckass. I'm saying screen those who wish to purchase them legally, so that the people who we don't want with weapons can be prevented from having them. It won't prevent everything, but we need to do something.
This is coming from a firearms enthusiast. I also think we should have more citizens carrying, and potentially armed guards at schools

I didn't say anything about banning anything. It's just that every time that new gun legislature is made, it either does nothing or makes things worse.

Yeah, the assault rifle/high capacity magazine bans would be surprisingly easy to get around

the only people who own legal assault rifles have a class 3 firearms license and a federal tax stamp saying they can have it. everyone else has a semi automatic rifle
#372 to #359 - verby (04/21/2013) [-]
I meant the legal definition of assault rifle, semi automatic and what not. In any case, it can be an assault rifle if it's not fully automatic.
