Hunt what? A whole herd of deer? Auto, semi...who cares? It's not a weapon that belongs in the civilian population. Still a machine gun...get over it.
How can a semi automatic be "still a machine gun"? Educate yourself before you argue.

The only thing you can hunt with an AR15 is people. And if you need a semi auto to kill something that means you can't make a kill shot on the first round which mens you can hit sqwat. Semi auto are made for non hunters. Real hunters only need one round.

You don't posses any first hand knowledge whatsoever concerning firearms, hunting, or any other use for firearms in society, now do you? Yet here you are, Bla blah Blahing away, expressing your first Amendment right. You are a either unintelligent, or merely another Libturd Clown here to entertain, which is it?

The momentum for gun control is over, explains why our legislators just killed the ill conceived bill to close a non existent, so called "Gun show loop Hole" in Richmond. The tides are turning against the gun grabbing liberals like yourself. LOL

If the sniper who was just killed was armed, and he was at a gun range, where everyone there is armed, then how could this have happened? Shouldn't someone there have taken down the shooter prior to his act, or at least make sure he never kills again? I'm not getting into this debate, but it does raise a serious question to the argument that more guns will make us safer.

Just the point I always take, doesn't matter if your armed or not, if someone has the drop on you your toast. Carrying concealed is a haox perpetuated by men with character flaws.

"If someone has the drop on you your toast", that makes no sense.{ "haox" is HOAX.} You write like one of those Nigerian scammers!!!

Are you retarded? there were 3 present on the range, one murdered the other two, whose going to intervene? Trying to make a point when you don't even bother to read the police report of the shooting is typical libtard logic. Sometimes it's better for liberals to just be thought of as fools, then for them to open their mouths and remove all doubt.

As comment number 495 I would just like to point out that this is a polarized issue and not one opinion has been swayed in the previous 494 comments and if a million comments are posted no minds will be changed. It will just be each side trying to out emotional response the other side. Shall we agree to disagree?

As long as we can all agree that Guardian needs to cool his/her jets with the insults and attacks. I simply raised a question on this forum and he/she starts name calling like an 8 year old. I thought these forums were for intelligent discussion/debate, but looking at what Guardian says on virtually every post causes one to lose interest. Why the nasty tone from this person? Are they like this to people in person? And to be a gun owner with this kind of temper? Hmmmmmm..........

Regardless Boodreau, I do agree with you about the pointless direction of this current discussion. There is much work to do regarding gun safety in our country. We've got to stop the senseless bickering. It solves nothing, and only further polarizes each side. We owe it to our children and ourselves to provide a sensible solution to this issue. Obviously something is going to change. It's inevitable. Whatever that change is has to be an improvement of where we are now. Everything needs to be on the table ie; mental health, current laws, enforcement, education, limitations, and a solid defining interpretation of the 2nd Amendment by the Supreme Court that will eliminate the current guesswork of what it means.

Thank YOU Boodreau. It's nice to see there are people on here that can contribute in a positive way.

Dear Editor, please consider ending this thread as it's now serving no purpose and has become hateful. I appreciate our freedoms, but what should be informative has become ridiculous. Is this a standard NBC news wants to be promote? Thank you.

Re: the sniper death. I haven't read police reports, but I think the death of an experienced sniper should be a warning to all. His expertise cannot be questioned. So many here seem to consider themselves some type of expert in the handling and use of guns. You wouldn't have been qualified to carry this man's ammunition yet today he's dead, maybe at the hands of someone he was attempting to help. Fun was made of ordianry citizens here who had a reaction of fear to a man carrying a gun into a grocery store. A man who these people knew absolutely nothing about, knew nothing about why he was there. Mr. Kyle and the other vicitm (sorry, I don't remember the man's name) knew their shooter, knew he was having problems, yet this man was able to kill someone who was so deadly in Iraq that insurgents put a bounty on his head. I'm not a gun control crazy, but I do know that guns in the hands of some people are totally dangerous. The people who were scared when they saw the Kroger gun toter had no way in heaven of knowing his motives when he walked through the door carrying a rifle. The smart people in the store that day were the people who believed he could have been a threat. Thankfully he wasn't, but certainly could have been.

Mr. Kyle served his country on the battlefield and had returned home with a mission to help his fellow troubled veterans. Prayers to his family

Everyone has character flaws...including you. But you seem to focus on the flaws of others far too much. As for your point about someone getting the drop on you...I completely agree. I am about as pro-gun as you get....carry concealed every day. If someone pulls a gun on you point blank range and decides to fire (such as what happened to poor Mr. Kyle)....not much you can do about that. But not every situation unfolds that way, and if I have access to something that will increase my, and my families, chances of survival by .1%....I'll take it.

Please note, that most CHP owners are not the blood thirsty, irresponsible cowboys that people like you tend to make us out to be. It is my hope that I NEVER have to draw my gun and would not do so unless I was no risk of harming anyone other than the bad guy and thought I actually had a CHANCE to draw my weapon.

Finally, to make a comparison.....you say that "if someone has the drop on you you're toast". Let's compare that to driving on the road. Driving defensively MAY not prevent you from getting into an accident.......it's still a pretty good practice to maintain.

I know none of this will get through to you. You've shown many times in the past you are not interested in debating the topic, you are here to talk. Debating is LISTENING, THEN talking...something I have yet to see you do. I UNDERSTAND your side of the argument, which I feel is important....I just strongly disagree. Can you say the same?
