Yet silence regarding handguns, which are used far more in gun violence than any long gun.

Who are you to determine what anyone else “needs?”

And what is an “assault weapon?”

You don't have the right to tell other people what they need.

Who are you to say for anyone?


For example, when I travel across country, I have one in my car. Defense to keep people at distance should my car break down, nice device to signal for help, and in this nutty unstable world of ours, I would certainly want it around should things suddenly go south.


And that's just one set of circumstances.


Who are you to say for anyone?

Indeed and the SC Heller decision confirmed that we can regulate the heck out of them.

Looking forward to all the MAGA righties telling us how socialist /communist /leftist faux news has become lol
90% of the people have no idea what an assault weapon is and isn't


its not bickering, we are not nerds about it


why don't we start with defining what an assault weapon is???


the most of these politico's can not define what "military style" is
or..... what an assault weapon is




before anyone should be proposing a law the definition needs to be clearly established


define assault weapon.....

an ar15 is NOT an assault weapon

define (you want a ban/regulation) of what an assault weapon is

everyone of these is what an ar15 could have....to include choice of caliber size)

is it caliber size
is it magazine(round storage) size
is it semi-auto
is it a handguard to protect the hands from a hot barrel
is it that it can have a scope mounted
is it that it can have a bipod mounted
is it because its (as the rolling stones said) Painted Black


nearly everyone of those option is available on nearly every weapon...to include handguns

the only one that is not available on nearly every weapon is: and its NOT available on the ar15 without an ILLEGAL mod (or grandfathered M16)....is it full auto

the ar15 is available:
in different calibers
in different magazine(round storage) size
in different styles of handguard to protect the hands from a hot barrel
in different scope mounts
in different bipod mounted
in different colors

nearly every rifle has those different options,,,over 65% of ALL rifles are semi

so if YOU are going to say BAN assault weapons LIKE the ar15...you are meaning nearly all rifles....AND HANDGUNS...... so make a definition otherwise you ARE SAYING ban them all..including handguns and pump shotguns


what about my tube magazine lever action Henry 44mag rifle (like what the "Rifleman" had but full length )


so which is it ...ban an UNDEFINED set of weapons(which really means ban all).. or maintain our constitutional rights that shall no be infringed

An assault weapon is a scary looking gun that can go pew pew many times.

If both are semi auto, what is the difference ? What makes one "bad" and the other "good" ?
