Your reply was:

"This is nearly the definition of ignorance.

1. I'm not going to find out the truth."

Sorry, but you clearly infer that by me not reading it I was not going to "find out the truth."

It was only after I called you out on it that you switched to "his truth".

Like I said, feel free to fulfill his desire of using the death of 20 people to get you to read his rant.

Apparently, you feel it is important.
You should actually read the other thread. You copied and pasted yours and Texas's post out of context after it was pointed out that your post was the definition of ignorance. It has nothing to do with whether you feel the manifesto is important or not.

Keep lying, but we know the truth.

I didn't read it either, btw, but I'm not as weak enough to think that it's going to get me riled up like it has you.

It's semi-automatic centre-fire rifles that are generally restricted in some other countries, whilst shotguns are limited to a capacity of no more than three cartridges (in magazine plus the breech).

Centerfire ammunition - Wikipedia

.22 Rimfire Long Rifle is what is legal in some countries, however you can get have a firear,s licence upgraded in order to use more powerful rifles to cull deer and large mammals, which must by law be shot cleanly.

A shotgun licence is easier to obtain, a firearms licence is more difficult to obtain in most countries.

As for Murdoch, he recently lost control of Sky to Comcast, and New Corp is not as influential as it once was.

The New York Post is controlled by Rupert Murdoch, the right-wing media mogul who keeps in close touch with the president.

This is not the first time the Post has called for such a ban. But it is still striking to see the message on the front page of the paper, where Trump is likely to see it. Trump grew up reading the paper in New York City and continues to receive copies in Washington.

"America is terrified," the editorial reads. "President Trump, you are positioned to assuage that fear. On gun control, you are a pragmatic centrist, someone who knows there is a vast majority of Americans who are not to the extreme left or right on this issue. They just want the killings to stop."
Love the NY Post.

Lmao... So true.

Right wing logic is sad, but unfortunately quite deadly in this country. There is a reason we lead the developed world in mass shootings

I hope the Left can keep up their misplaced indignation long enough for the next elections! It is tedious, but gives Joe & Mika
something besides "Orangeman Bad" to whine about!

You know, Pedro, that is about the lamest defense of assault type weapons ever. Yeah, if someone wants to do harm to others, they can use a knife, scissors, a ball bat, or even some kitchen utensils. But there is no denying that if someone wants to do wholesale slaughter of a whole lot of people in just a few minutes, these guns with multi round magazines are the weapon of choice.

So far, I haven't seen too many of these mass murderers saying " Ya know, I think I will leave the AK-47 at home and take a sword with me instead ". Your excuse is completely out in left field.

I'm more frightened of what the crazies in government or working for those who control the government will do when they disarm the citizenry. They do these things now, how much worse will they be when they get emboldened when we're unable to defend ourselves from anyone. The progressives hate the police and abuse of power but they want more police and more police powers. THAT is crazy.

He won't, you are right. He has bigger fish to fry, like tweeting about celebrities who oppose him.

Murdoch is playing both sides. In the New York Post, he publishes “Ban guns now!” On Fox News, he has Hannity say, “They’re going to take your guns!”
