Those assault weapons have only been legal since 2004 when the ban was lifted. I really don't see the big deal myself. Background checks that more than 80% of Americans believe are fair. Do not change the stock on your sons gun, its that easy, right? There should be background checks for ammo. Its no different than the Police asking for your insurance and drivers license. In my opinion it is our business that you are sane and responsible before buying your ammo, and guns.

<quoted text>How many people do you know who have fully automatic "weapons just like the military?"
I know several people that legally own fully automatic weapons. As long as you pay $200 for the tax stamp and pass the BATF approval process, you can legally own any fully automatic weapon registered before 1986.

The best way to stop a criminal with a gun is to point a gun at him. Obama does not want your gun. It is a background check, same as the one you get when you get on a plane. People are so stupid. He said 7 years ago that he would not take your guns. They wanna get the assault rifles off the street. If you want weapons just like the military then you need to look into other countries. In our country it is illegal to have a tank,rocket launcher,drone or any other weapon that is outlawed to the public. Chill out PK. lol
It is not illegal to own a tank, rocket launcher, or drone. The cannon and machine guns on the tank or the rocket launcher would have to be disabled with a BATF approved procedure to prevent it from being usable to chamber or fire live rounds. You should do some research before telling someone to chill out.

First of all, they are not assault weapons, but weapons that are similar to assault weapons.

If you are going to background check me for buying ammo, then let's background check you when you buy liquor or beer. Lets take it one step further, lets background check you every time you buy a car. If you have been convicted of an offense involving alcohol and a vehicle, you should not be allowed to drive. More people are killed by drunk drivers than firearms. You don't have to go through a background check to buy a car or register it at the clerks office for tags.

What is an assault rifle? If somebody got attacked with a pencil wouldnt that be an assault pencil? There is no way assault weapon is always a gun there are many types of weapons.

Squeeze both and you still get a liquid called juice. Misuse a car or a weapon and either one can injure or kill you or someone else.

People forget that little part in the 2nd amendment that says "well regulated Militia".
Regulated - Control or supervise by means of rules and regulations.
We have the right to guns, but the government also has the right to make certain rules pertaining to said rights.
