What if I only own so called assault weapons? And I'm in another discussion on this forum and they do want to take my guns.

I haven't read a single "solution" that didn't infringe on my rights.

You are making a lot of assumptions when all I did was point out that your age limitation was clearly not much help in this case. 26 is not 19, and that was this guys age in FL.

Go ahead and explain how restricting the purchase of rifles to the age of 26 or above would have prevented this, that was YOUR argument, not mine, unless I misunderstood something you said?

Is that the case? You really only own AR15s?

Sorry about your rights, but I'm only interested in children and others dying from assault weapons. And I'll join my voice and my vote with others to make a change.

If the 2nd only applies to the militia then the 1st only applies to the press.

According to most of the gun grabbers here, we a just a bunch of lonely basement dwellers. Now you want us to get out and socialize with other like minded individuals. That's a great idea. I've already found my crew. Citizens Militia of Mississippi - WELCOME TO CMM

I've got an AR10. That's the larger version of the AR15.

I'll just cancel your vote out during the next election.

No amendments are definitely a thing. Furthermore an absolute right to weapon ownership has never been upheld by the courts.

what about revolvers??

I could take my 44mag 6shooter with 6 reloaders (36 shots total) at take out 36 people (nearly taking their heads off) in less than 3 minutes

what about swords??

... the sword I made, (razor sharp too) taken into a place with soft targets (like a school or movie theater) and I could decapitate 4 dozen people in less than 5 minutes

what about koolaid?
jim jones took out 600 people with a pitcher of koolaid


its not about the TOOL...its the nutjobs out there

Ok, so that leaves us with 2015 isn't "recent" and a gun law to prevent 26 year olds instead of 21 year olds from buying guns would have prevented a 19 yr old from having this gun?

I'm all for finding laws and enforcing laws that will prevent this, but your answer just isn't even close to being it.
