    Military or military style guns have no place in the hands of the general public. We will get evidence on Tuesday how serious the American people are about solving their gun violence problem.

    @Ms. Ima

    I’ll agree with that – I’ve lived in places where the deer overpopulate and cause accidents because they weren’t hunted. I just think you shouldn’t use a weapon that can fire too quickly or an ammunition that can go through a deer to hit something on the other side. A bullet can travel quite a far distance before it loses its kinetic energy and capability of killing someone.

    You conservatives are a bit out of date on this one. There’s been a huge decline in deer populations in the past five years, probably from loss of habitat from increased oil exploration. (Yes, increased oil exploration, under Obama. Get over it.) Hunting deer with assault weapons is exactly as “sportsmanlike” as fishing with dynamite.

    “Adjustable stock. Extended magazine. Nightvision reflex sight. Detachable suppressor. Yeah, I know it seems a little unfair… but it’ll have to do until they come up with some way to keep those deer from running so fast!”

    All of you do understand that the “assault” weapons you are so against fire ONE round at a time. do you not? That NONE of the rifles you call “assault” weapons can fire multiple rounds? That one must activate the trigger every time one would fire the rifle you call an “assault” weapon?

    Do you get it? Automatic weapons, AKA “machine guns” are already illegal!!!!!!!

    So the cartoon is spreading false information.

    Yeah, it “looks” just like what the US military uses (with a selector switch that lets you choose 1, 3 or auto with training to use 3 round bursts) but it is NOT the same weapon.

    So once again your argument is based in falsehoods and fear.

    These single-shot assault rifles may be legal, and the mechanisms to convert them to fully automatic machine guns may be illegal, but the latter can still be obtained online and installed. And really, who the hell really needs a 30- or 100- round clip on an AR-15 to kill a duck or a deer? That’s not sport, that’s just slaughter.

    @apfelzra

    Your “opinion” is duly noted. But I must ask who are YOU to decide how many times I have to reload my rifle? I have committed no crime, but YOU would have me labeled a criminal for the mere possession of a device that in and of itself can not hurt anyone.

    As a matter of fact I do not own any 30 round clips. MY one and only semi-automatic rifle has a ten round clip….of which I own 5.

    Do I need that many? Not today.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. – Thomas Jefferson

    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. – Thomas Jefferson

    By reading these comments it is really apparent that 90% of the people know nothing about firearms or the balisticts of the cal.223 which is what most AR style rifles shoot. Non shooters jump to knee jerk reactions without any first hand knowledge of the subject and no desire to educate themselfs.

    As a person who is not a gun enthusiast, I recognize that I don’t know all about guns, and their parts and capabilities.

    As a musician, I know how to make a band sound better or much worse by knowing which knobs to turn on the sound board.

    If the band sounds bad, it doesn’t matter to the audience if I haven’t set the high midrange correctly or if I pressed the “suck” button. It still sounds bad.

    My point is that you don’t have to know everything about guns to know that some of them shoot with greater velocity than others. Some blow bigger holes than others. And on and on. If the damage it can cause in the wrong hands is more than is needed by people who know what they’re doing, I believe it may not be necessary for everyone to be able to buy.

    No matter how eloquently or poorly stated, I think that’s the point of many posters. Can gun enthusiasts be willing to accept that? I’m willing to let the people who know guns decide which ones are too risky for uneducated people to buy easily, just as I don’t expect the audience member to tell me to increase the value of the sound spectrum that surrounds 256 Hz. If they tell me it sounds like the vocals are muddy, I can take it from there.

    And if ANYONE thinks that they can defeat the armed services of the United States by owning any and every gun they can buy, I recommend you choose what you want on your headstone while you have the time.

    Put the natural hunters of deer back and they will keep their numbers down.

    Survivalists have no fear, right Bruce?

    Bruce: for one last time, fully-automatic weapons are NOT illegal, you just have a special licensing process, and tax, to legally possess them!


    Also, even with a single trigger pull per round, “semi-automatic” weapons ARE automatic loading weapons, and, a person good with one can fire almost as fast as on full-auto, but with greater ACCURACY. It is the massive clips/magazines allowing a lot of “random lead” to go down range that kills a lot of people in confined spaces, without the need to reload, or do much aiming.


    Now if folks really want to get serious, don’t talk Barrett .50 “sissy guns”, go for a twin 40 mm mount in the back of your pickup, complete with Confederate battle flag bumper sticker.
