It doesn't completely ban your right to a firearm.
Wrong. It doesn't ban anything. It does burden honest citizens with having to buy a tax stamp to own a machine gun.
Hundreds of thousands have paid the fee and enjoy shooting them.
Get over your lost cause. Those like myself will block your attempts. We are insurmountable.

Oh yes, the ban that didn't "ban" anything, that one? I bought more "assault weapons" during that 10 years than any other time in my life. Ban, ha ha. Hell, they may as well have added "all weapons" to it because it did nothing. I mean really, it was a joke. I guess a few slept better. The completely clueless.

It was not a ban, people could still buy, sell, and possess.

And many more did, because of the "ban".

And 99.99% of those polled don't know what an "assault weapon" was - since the term doesn't have any definition, other than what the government wants to call one.


This is why the opinion of a plurality of the idiot masses isn't enough to throw out Constitution rights.

Well, the way mass shooting seems to work these days is that every time it happens, it fuels the debate about banning assault weapon. As a result, the Republicans then find themselves in a tough situation. But after a while, everything seems to go back to normal.
