Or do you not care about all the people killed or injured in hunting accidents?
Hunting accidents are vary rare. And Fish and Wildlife control the population with hunting seasons. You don't know much do you?

Many of these posters are just ignorant and don't want to learn.

Why do cops need semi-autos? What makes them better than us? Why do they have more rights than us?

Why does the military even exist?

I love how gun-grabbers always let the mask slip eventually--you don't want to ban guns; you just want the government to be the only ones to have them. Donald “Nazi” Trump is protected at all times by full-autos; why should he have that right?

Personally, I'd prefer everyday people to be strapped instead of a white supremacist government.

You got me there. I'm such an idiot. I slept through all my classes on population biology, conservation and ecology. I'm such a fool that I have spent a lifetime sleepwalking through the Colorado mountains. God only knows why I didn't drive off a cliff or something. I wouldn't know the difference between an elk and a pika. I know nothing.

And the fact is no one needs to be running around with semi-automatics other than law enforcement and the military.

What have all you "responsible" gun owners done to address the issue of mass shootings? Let's see - go into hysterics at the very idea of background checks; donate your every last spare dime to the NRA so that they can buy off members of congress; run down to your local gun dealer in a fit of hysterics after every single mass shooting to ensure that there will still be plenty of guns and rounds of ammunition to kill children with - no matter what. No need to point out these pesky facts.

Love how you let your emotions cloud your judgment. The 2A and law abiding people have absolutely zero to do with these shootings. It's pretty offensive that you would lump my wife and I into those that kill. Just pathetic.
You , just like all of us, should be angered by these shootings. In 90% of the school shootings, it was known that the shooters were either unhinged, had mental issues, both and through off many flags that at some point in time something would happen. Blame the individuals that created HIPA laws, and gun free zones for these things.


As far as known needs a semi auto...just more signs of being clueless and just like that other poster said, you just are looking to feel like you're doing something. If it to 50 plus rounds , using semi autos to put the Dayton shooter down, I damn well be able to use the same thing to protect my family with.


As far as the NRA... you go ahead and pick whatever boogie man to place your negative feelz on. They are nothing more than a bunch of fud's. And aren't even in the top 20 lobbyists. Think what you want though.

And don't tell me that you need a sniper rifle for hunting. You can get all the food you need to sustain life these days at your local grocer or restaurant.
The most famous sniper in history Finnish soldier Simo Häyhä during the winter war with Russia used a run of the mill issued Mosin rifle with NO optics.

I suggest you go to a a range nd try some different guns out, because right now you don't know much about them.

It's their authoritarian streak coming out.
Not a gun grabber as I own a few myself.

I don't have to know. I know people in this country are getting tired of mass shootings, and the majority want something done about it.

Talk about emotions with the families of those who have died in mass shootings.
