The debate is useless and stupid but stirs the pot. The only way to actually ban anything is to shut down the manufacturers and start confiscation door to door with jail time for offenders. Other than that is just people kicking tires.

Yes because I'm not for punishing the law abiding for the transgressions of a few. A very few.


There are far more other "devices" that kill more people each year that a semi auto long rifle.

Cars kill more in a week than mass shootings do in a year.

Why are cars available to the public?

When I think of an assault weapon I think of catapults, battle axes, battering rams etc.. I don't think of semi automatic rifles..





Don't they know that Black Guns Matter ?


Everyone is in such a rush to ban certain types of guns because they look scary.

I'm more afraid of the 29 shootings this past weekend with 6 fatalities that took place in Chicago.

Why don't we ever hear any outrage from the Left when there is a mass shooting every weekend in these big dangerous cities? Don't the democrats care about poor people that are often black living in these crime ridden neighborhoods?



The Dems only seem to care when it is white people being shot. Who are the real racists here?
