Just so I don't have to play this 'what about this gun..etc" all day.

The following weapons should be prohibited or only possessed by people who pass the CCW background check with local law enforcement:
  • A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine
  • A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds.
  • A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine
  • A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than ten rounds;
  • A semiautomatic shotgun that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine; or A shotgun with a revolving cylinder

More scare threads. No one is going to take your guns. Why get every gun owner revved up?

Hmmm not a white guy

Not an AR-15

Banning the 15 will do what again?

Did you all forget?
The solution is easy. Less guns equals less gun violence.

More white guys kill people, and kill them "bigly" in mass shootings, then any other race and gender.

And banning assault rifles is a good place to start in fixing the problem. (As the other ways are forbidden, or at least, not something folks want to touch with a 10ft pole).
And more minorities shoot people on a one to one basis.

And all totaled it's a lot more people than get killed in mass shootings.

But I guess that doesn't count since it's mostly black men killing other black men with boring old handguns.

Apparently they're not as dead as the people white guys kill in mass shootings......

What's funny for me in these threads is that I own exactly ZERO AR platforms. I tend more to shotguns, most of which will be on the "to be banned next" list once ARs are done away with.
Just imagine what would have happened if Cruz would have had the new Mossberg 590m, or any other mag fed semi auto shotgun.

I give credit to the posters that just come out and say they want an all out ban, we all know it is their end game anyway.

Yes. Had to tighten up the terminology.

One of our AR owning (by his own admission) Delegates called shotguns that when he introduced a bill to ban semi and pump shotguns. This was right after the de facto ban on ARs was adopted.

Default Question for people on the left

On one hand, you have been calling Trump and the conservatives Nazis, Fascists and racists, and you want to resist them. Some even said Trump is literally Hitler. On the other hand, you advocate everything from strict gun control to a total ban.

So when the Nazis, Fascists, racists and their Russian friends come for you, if not the AR-15s, what do you use to fight and resist them?

Interesting, two of Chris Kyle's favorite weapons to use were bolt action. And from what i've heard he was pretty good with a gun.

Don't confuse them. Well, even more. They want open borders so they can run N or S.
