So much firepower ? What makes it so much more than anything else ? The reason I have one , is I can use it at my local indoor range because of it's lack of firepower... very interesting.

more nebulous terminology to be inclusive of any rifle with a telescopic scope.... so let's see, all semi auto rifles are verboten under the term, 'assault weapons' and anything that remains which wears a scope is now considered a,'sniper rifle'. have most of it covered. Save pistols for another day.


NJ considers BB guns/ .177 and .22 cal air rifles the legal equivalent of centerfire rifles.


some states are soon going to be the recipient of a major influx of new residents

Do you know anything about natural law?

We buy it. Like going to Costco and getting 100 rolls of TP, buying in bulk saves money.


As others have stated, there is no gun show loophole. If you buy a gun from a licensed dealer at a gun show, you have to go through the same process as buying at a store. If you buy it from an individual, you follow the same laws of your state as if you found the seller on Facebook or your local paper's classifieds. The only thing a gun show does is bring buyers and sellers to the same location. You can't stop commerce.

As others stated, a .223 caliber AR-15 isn't powerful. In fact, some places do not allow you to hunt deer with it.


I've hunted with a .30-30 since 1980 and it is much more powerful than a standard AR-15. The majority of hunting rifles are more powerful than an AR.


Did your last two sentences expect to hit us in our "feels"? I've had friend die in car crashes and I still drive. I have lost family members to drinking and I still drink in moderation. I even had a sister die from crack and I am pushing for the government to give up the war on drugs because it is unconstitutional. I live my life by logic and principles.

You keep talking about a lot of stuff you know nothing about but do anyway. Who's winning the Super Bowl this year? I need another hundred horse out of my F350, which tune should I buy? Diesel, if that makes a difference.
That's why I live in America, so I can give my opinion on things. And I will continue to do so. I have every right to weigh in on how I want things in my country to be. Sorry not sorry that you don't approve.

I don't give a damn about your feels. Live your life however you want. I'm just glad the majority of Americans see the problems and hopefully are doing something about them.

Majority of Americans want something done about these assault weapons and mass shootings. That's all that matters to me. People can jump up and down and scream natural rights til the cows come home. I don't care at all what individuals do. But when what they do affects me or those I love or other people, then I think we all have a say. And that's what we're doing. Having our say. And we'll continue having our say. Hopefully all the way to the ballot box.

We will have to agree to disagree. I do know the majority of Americans want gun reform and I'm hoping they won't stop until we get it.

Your natural law rights end where my boundaries begin. Assault weapons are a huge issue and if we (majority of Americans) have to keep pressing to get things changed, that is what we will do.
