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.


So.......

What makes you think that if you could successfully ban or otherwise remove from existence all the evil "assault weapons" ....


That the people bent on killing other people won't use "sensible" guns like shotguns, rifles and pistols?

It's not the gun.

My understanding of the phrase assault weapon =https://www.journal-news.com/news/national/assault-weapon-assault-rifle-what-the-difference/LPXLAj8ZcHkPn2rLn3bOGK/#targetText=What's%20called%20an%20assault%20weapo n,of%20this%20type%20of%20weapon.
Your article says there is "no such thing" as an assault weapon, and it is correct.

A "sniper rifle" has no set definition.

If you want to ban something you are going to have to define it.

Whatever you want since any firearm can be one. A Sniper isn't a verb or adjective.

That is an interesting point and one I never thought of - but you're right.

Let's see... You want me to give up my guns, but you will give criminals a free pass in the criminal justice system since often those gun violations are dropped by the courts.

I have an ideal... Why don't we hold criminals accountable for their crimes and lock them up?

I know that this is a new concept, but something tells me that this will reduce violent crime more than banning an AR15.

On a sidenote. To all the Fudds who sold out the Modern Sporting Rifle crowd... Now they're coming after YOUR scoped finely tuned bolt action "sniper rifles." We told you this, but you didn't listen and you're next if they win on the AR15 issue.

Oh!! You think it will never happen? In my State, both Ruger's 10/22 (.22 L/R) and the Mini-14 (.223/300 BO/7.62x39mm) are NOW "assault gun."

If every single responsible gun owners do not make a solid stand now and we end up loosing our Modern Sporting Rifles and Our Hunting Rifles, do you know what is next? Our evil "Trench Gun," I mean our pump-action shotguns. After they win this battle, the anti gun crowd will not stop till every single 1911 and even our six/shot shot revolvers, like the S&W Model 10's, 19's and 36's. are made illegal.
