A sniper is a person doing the shooting. Be default it would be any weapon they used as they can use any firearm to "snipe".

In a free society we are allowed to own anything we choose, without restrictions. No one has the right to legalize or criminalize private property.

Exhibit A of the difference between MAGAs and libertarians.

How is that going to stop some nut job from taking a gun to a mall or school and killing as many people as possible?

It won't.

But cops kill more people in one year than all mass shootings in 10 years combined. And the US military kills multitudes more people than all homicides in this country.

Yeah, you are right. Next they will be saying BB guns are on the hit list.

Gun nuts need to get this through their heads, NO ONE cares about shotguns, rifles, or pistols, those are always going to be a part of sensible gun ownership. MILITARY TYPE ASSAULT WEAPONS make no sense whatsoever, and should never be in the hands of anyone except the military and law enforcement.

Just like I do not need a tank to protect myself, neither do I need a weapon that was designed to wipe out as many people as possible in as short a period of time as possible. This gun ownership and open carry situation has gotten way out of hand and needs fixed.

When mass murder events start to become an everyday occurrence in this country, something has got to change.

Why do cops need MILITARY TYPE ASSAULT WEAPONS?

Cops kill over 1000 people every year, and most of them are unarmed.

Ask Daniel Shaver:

...two months following the shooting, Brailsford was fired from the Mesa Police Department for violating department policy -- including having the words "You're F*****" engraved on the barrel of his personal, department-approved AR-15...

Why does the military even exist? No war has been fought to protect America since 1812, and even that is debatable.

Do you agree that cops should be disarmed?

Then tell, us on anti gun-nut, since you seem to be the know-it-all.....if you are worried about what kills the most, do tell us what kill's more people yearly?




a. rifle
b. AR
c. pistol
d. shotgun
e. military type assault weapon

Every gun design is or was used by the military. Being ignorant about it repeatedly doesn't make that change.

air rifle aka bb gun. How's about this? I don't need that either https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huLI3wS_3Rw.
