At least, have a clue as to what you are talking about when posting.


"Full automatics" have NEVER been used in any mass shooting, or any shooting, in the US.


A "full automatic" is a military weapon that, when the trigger is squeezed, fires on it's own until the trigger is released. They can be bought in the US, but it is a several year process that involves very deep background checks just to get a license and tax stamp to purchase the gun.



The AR-15 and AK-47 are semi automatic rifles. The trigger must be squeezed every time a single round is fired. The only thing different than a common semi-auto deer rifle is the "scary" military appearance.

Crazy like 20,000 gun laws and open campaign to ban 90% of firearms?

Again, nobody cares about this silly difference.

If it looks like a gun, it must be banned. Screw the constitution.

Hayes v. US (1968)
This 8-1 decision (with only Chief Justice Earl Warren dissenting) is, depending on your view of Fifth Amendment, either a courageous application of the intent of the self-incrimination clause, or evidence that the Supreme Court had engaged in reductio ad absurdum of the Fifth Amendment. Under this ruling, a person illegally possessing a firearm, under either federal or state law, could not be punished for failing to register it.
Same would apply here.
Since registration is the means to confiscation.

Are you kidding? They love all that stuff the way it is, it makes them 'feel good'. They hate us.
