    No need to say confiscate all weapons, but there’s no reason for civilians to have 30+ round magazines, and semi-auto rifles that CAN fire over 100 rounds per minute, fast as the trigger can be pulled.


    There should be no need to panic over true “sporting” weapons or those legitimately used for hunting, with a maximum of 5 rounds in a magazine. But whether you say “military” or “assault” weapons, it isn’t the stocks, bayonet studs, or “looks” that make these killing machines powerful, but their rate of fire, and ammunition capacity. Target that, not just “guns”.

    That’s all anyone IS targeting, dtroutma. The conservatives say it’s about taking away all your weapons, but they don’t pay much attention to reality.

    Actually, the original ban did focus on such matters as “bayonet mounts” and “stocks”.
    []
    It did attempt to limit ammo capacity, but had so many loopholes that people were able to import high-capacity items from Europe.
    []
    Most gun manufacturers easily circumvented the requirements of the law. Toppling the original ban was more of a PR thing than an actual battle.

    “The NEXT Gun Massacre”.
    It’s not a matter of IF it will happen, but WHEN it will happen…

    Outlaw guns and the next “Gun Massacre” will be by criminals breaking into people’s houses because they know the people inside are unarmed. Just like England, Australia, and Germany had happen when firearms were outlawed.

    A question…and, seriously, I don’t know the answer to this.
    If you have to do the background check, and the waiting period to buy a gun from a dealer, or pawn shop, or at a gun show, is there also a requirement to finish a gun safety and operation course to get some sort of a shooter’s license, kind of like taking a driving test to get a driver’s license?
    If not, could something like that be set up by people like the NRA, to give at least basic safety rules?
    Why couldn’t the NRA and the Homeland Security Bureau work together to set something like this up, instead of constantly fighting with each other?
    I have to get a new driver’s license every 4 years, so why not get a new shooter’s license every 4 years as well?

    The big difference is we have these massacres several times a year as opposed to each country rarely seeing something like that in a decade.

    They love their scare tactics. The r/w know it’s about limits, not totally banning guns. They rely on the many that listen to the scary stuff and have knee-jerk reaction of outrage.

    " it isn’t the stocks, bayonet studs, or “looks” that make these killing machines powerful, but their rate of fire, and ammunition capacity. "

    I agree, but would add ammo caliber to the list. I’ve been going over past shootings, and the evidence is compelling that a .22 caliber ‘varmint’ rifle is not nearly as deadly as a 9mm semi-automatic handgun with a 20 round clip.

    So, the Second Amendment says, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” I just realized it doesn’t actually say anything about bullets!

    Have all the guns you want, but anyone with bullets gets thrown away for life. Only slightly joking about that…

    So it’s ok to kill an arbitrary number of people that you’ve come up with? Not looking good for you trout.

    There aren’t any good liberal causes that would accept blood money, are there? You propose a very bad theory.

    THe number of these mass shooting s down. Moron Morin represents why they occur in the first place. He thoinks guns are the problem. James Holmes boiught tickets to movies at three other theaters but left them because the honored Colorado’s cocealed carry law. He chose the theater he shot up specifically because it banned guns on the premises.

    Gun ownership is at an all time high yet muder numbers and murder rates are at over 40 year lows and crime is at over 30 year lows.

    Don’t take moron Morin’s word on anything. Do some research. Kids are more likely to suffocate or drown than to be shot.
