    Bullets definitely kill people. They go right into a person and stop all functions.

    Owning an assault weapon is not a constitutional right, any more than owning a sawed-off shotgun or owning bomb making equipment is. Does it matter that Ronald Reagan called for outlawing assault weapons? (He did, you can look it up.)

    Here’s a myth: rather than trying to (a) help people like Adam Lanza in advance & (b) protecting us from them, we need to split hairs over what kind of gun the national govt thinks we should have.
    Of course I’ve touched on a couple of concepts here, so I’ve lost half the audience……

    Unless somebody pulls the trigger, the gun isn’t going to kill anyone, it’s just going to sit there like any other inanimate object. Just like a knife isn’t going to stab somebody unless it gets picked up and used. And performance enhancing drugs don’t inject themselves into people’s bloodstreams, somebody has to do that FOR them.

    Sometimes I just think that if we could just get rid of all of the PEOPLE, the world would be a nicer place.
    No, I would be gone too. I’m not enough of a hypocrite to think that I should deserve to survive instead of… whomever.

    On occasion, an accidental discharge can occur by means other than the finger pulling the trigger, such as dropping a loaded weapon. Because of this possibility, most currently produced pistols are designed with a “drop-safety” or firing pin block, a mechanism inhibiting or isolating the firing pin, preventing accidental discharge if the firearm is dropped. However, most long guns do not have drop- safeties.
    .
    Accidental discharges not involving trigger-pull can also occur if the firearm is mechanically unsound: poor maintenance, abuse, inept “gunsmithing,” or the use of substandard materials or defective ammunition in the gun may all lead to breakage.

    .
    One last form of accidental discharge, known as cooking off, occurs when a weapon becomes overheated, with the firing chamber hot enough to ignite the propellant charge in the ammunition round, causing the cartridge to fire. As recently as 1979, this problem doomed the innovative Heckler & Koch G11 during NATO trials.

    A hammer may not drive a nail, but it sure makes driving a nail a lot easier.

    Oh well, two out of three ain’t bad. By the way, “protect” is not a four letter word. Guns do not kill, they protect. And if you want to get even more technical, gun owners kill criminals who invade their home, thus protecting their innocent children from the dangerous criminals.

    If you were to be honest, and show the statistics, millions more people are protected each year by gun users than are killed by gun users. But then again, I assume you have no interest in honesty.

    Apparently reality is a liberal plot aimed against you.

    I’m really tired of the arguments that if guns killed people, then forks make people fat, pencils make mistakes, etc., etc. Use a little common sense, people! All of these things are tools. Any tool that is misused by any human being has the potential to be destructive. People driving cars badly kill people. People overeating kill themselves. A person with a semi-automatic has the potential to kill a lot more people than one holding a knife does. There are laws limiting the size of a knife that can be carried in public. Does that limit your right to own a knife?? I think the real “sheeple” are those who allow themselves to be manipulated by the rabble rousing N.R.A. This used to be a good organization, until they became a shill for the gun industry. Congratulations, you have just made another rich businessman very happy! And yes, I own a gun, and no, I’m not worried about the National Guard knocking on my door. Cripe, I live in Arizona…they don’t have enough troops to take our guns, even if they wanted to, which I don’t believe!

    The simple fact is, more jurisdictions ban edged weapons, switchblades, butterfly knives, and other concealable knives designed as weapons, than regulate long weapons, like AR-15s, or even handguns. Many of those edged weapon prohibitions have been on the books since the 1950’s, some time before “gun control” was even mentioned.
