Absolutely. Semi-automatic weapons are not necessarily "assault weapons", and there is no chance of banning such weapons.
If you admit that you don't know what assault weapons are then why can't a definition of assault weapons include semi-automatic weapons. They certainly aren't necessary for hunting. And, since no one here has attempted to define exactly what government agents they intend to shoot to defend themselves, then they really aren't necessary to protect "patriots" from the government.

Disperse...!!!!!

disperse the 47 percenters...

"In the 1990s, the feds were embarrassed by skyrocketing crime rates in public housing—up to 10 times the national average, according to HUD studies and many newspaper reports. The government's response was to hand out vouchers to residents of the projects (authorized under Section 8 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974), dispersing them to safer and more upscale local..."

because they have to try.....

Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, said Sunday that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was wrong to assume that the government had the right to place limits on the Second Amendment. "He was not speaking from a constitutional perspective," Pratt said.

"The amendment does provide it's own degree of scrutiny: It says,'shall not be infringed,'" Pratt said on "Fox News Sunday" after host Chris Wallace read a quote from a 2008 case in which Scalia wrote that the Second Amendment was not "unlimited."

"And we know that at least one justice, Mr. Thomas, takes that point of view. This is not something where the government is supposed to be free to tell we the people, the government's boss, how much -- how far we can go with the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is there to constrain the government."

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/g...

Scalia: What the opinion in Heller said is that it will have to be decided in future cases, what limitations upon the right to keep and bear arms are permissible.

until a new ruling is made....the word of the court stands.

"My starting point and probably my ending point will probably be what limitations are within the understood limitations that the society had at the time," he said. "They had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be borne."

"Homicide was simply moved to a new location, not eliminated," concluded University of Louisville criminologist Geetha Suresh in a 2009 article in Homicide Studies. In Louisville, Memphis, and other cities, violent crime skyrocketed in neighborhoods where Section 8 recipients resettled."

and what is it you're researching?

Dog whistle politics

Dog whistle politics usually refers to the use of certain code words or phrases that are designed to be understood by only a small section of the populace. Generally speaking, these are phrases that have special meaning to that subsection entirely independent of its meaning to others, and represent a particularly insidious use of loaded language.

Any weapon that is not pump action, lever action, bolt action or single shot would/should be defined as an assault weapon. You have a problem with that definition?
Any weapons not available to the general public should not be available to any law enforcement agency....or to the military except when deployed to fight foreign wars.

Trying to blame unions is simply pathetic
US registry ships with union labor are non-competitive and needlessly increase costs.

Why do Alaskan cruise ships leave from Vancouver, B.C., and not from a port in Washington?

Sounds like it was, but i didn't watch it. All i know is i check the score once and it's 27 7. The next time it's 28 27 seahawks.

Better to forget the impeachment process, which will go nowhere in the Democrat Senate, and instead use gun control as a political sledgehammer to gain control of the Senate in 2014.

Gun control is as big a mistake for the Democrats as strict anti-abortion is for the Republicans....only bigger.

The truth is that some form of gun control may be appropriate for shitholes like NYC and Chicago which are gang-controlled, but is not appropriate for the responsible citizens in the rest of America.

Note that Joe Biden's lynch mob is focused only on responsible citizens, not on the criminal or mentally ill elements, which are the Obama base.

By 2016, even if you prophesies hold true, you will not be able to kill and rob all the rich you would like to. Many have already entered poverty or the "growth of the middle class", which means everybody is equally poor.
However, it is good that people like you are around to show the idiot Republicans who still think this is not a war, what reality is.
What are you guys gonna do once "the rich" have been eradicated along with poverty, racism, money and enough food? Even the printing press needs something valuable to keep going, especially when you will need a total national deficit or two to buy a cheeseburger after your leaders are done with you.
In the past 30 years the middle class incomes have increased 18% while the top have increased 387%. The Richest 400 people in the US now have more combined wealth than the first 150 million Americans. The Top 20% of all wage earners receive 80% of ALL income each year. After the collapse of 2008, 93% of ALL the wealth recovered so far has gone to the top 1%. The Forbes 400 list for 2012 has the richest 400 Americans at a combined record wealth of $1.7 Trillion. Exactly when do you believe this 30 year old Trickle Down Economic shit will start to kick in for the rest of America?
