Everyone has gotten their panties in unnecessary wads because they feel the Obama Administration is going to take their guns. This is not true. However, the proposed ban on assault rifles is a fact and it is a must. In Eastern Kentucky it is a given we need guns, but we do not need the assault rifles and that is exactly what they are called. It is unfortunate we have dope heads breaking in homes and robbing people and quite frankly would take your life for a pill or a buck. That being said, I am a gun owner, but only because we have this serious and dangerous problem in this area. I wouldn't use a gun to fight someone unless to protect myself. That is what my fist is for, but I find most people who talk tough carry guns. Too chicken to fight the old fashion way.

I do not support ANY Gun Ban on ANY type of Gun period. If you outlaw a specific type of gun (and I know this sounds cliche but it's true) only Criminals will have them then. A ban is NOT going to stop/ prevent a Criminal from getting that type of weapon illegally. For me, this really is not even about Guns..it's about Freedom. If we begin allowing removal of certain Rights and somehow justifying them then that's going to kick the door open to further infringements. If we ban certain Guns today and somehow rationalize that removal then it implies that we can take something else tomorrow and make a case for doing it somehow.

Who are you or anyone else to tell a grown, responsible, law abiding citizen what the should own?

What most people like you don't understand is, yeah they may say they are only banning 'assault weapons' but then what's next ? Semi automatic? Then hand guns ? Then single shot ? Then all guns ? Then the first amendment? Where will it stop, once they think they can take what they want, while us poor citizens who are to stupid to take care of ourselves fall in line, and ask big brother for permission to do anything, sit by and take it! The government needs to step back, and get the fuck out of my damn life !

You are an example of the problem. I bet if it were one of your children (God forbid anyone bred with you)who was killed by a deranged killer who legally got a hold of the assault rifles, then you would not be so gun hole against this issue. You can't decipher the question of the thread. The originator of the thread simply ask for 'your take' on gun control, not your attack on other posters' opinion. Go back up your hollow, holler to you, and play with your guns because you do not know how to have a civil discussion and you're oblivious when it comes to what is being proposed regarding gun legislation.

"Assault" rifles ARE semi automatic rifles. ANY semi automatic rifle can shoot as fast as any other. Even a semi automatic shotgun shoots as fast as any semi auto rifle. "Assault" rifles;AR 15's and AK47's and SKS's are NO different than any other semi auto rifle other than they LOOK like a military weapon. No one ever used the term "Assault" weapon before the term was coined by the anti gun nuts. The military never used that term even for their FULLY AUTOMATIC MACHINEGUNS. ANY gun can be an"assault" weapon if you are assaulted by one. Way too many uninformed people have bought in to this anti gun brainwashing tactic. AR 15's and the like are popular because they shoot a light recoiling .22 caliber bullet, have handrails that allow you to easily mount different scopes or holographic sights, or bi-pods or lasers or flashlights on them. Regardless of what you hear about them not being hunting guns ,1000's of people use them for hunting everything from groundhogs to deer in some states. I don't want to get shot by anything but I'll take a .223 Ar bullet over a 30-06 or .308 or God forbid a 300 winchester magnum or 458 elephant gun any day. ANY bullet can kill you or really mess up your life;even a high powered pellet gun.

That was my take on gun control. Have a grown up explain it to you if you don't understand.

I'm not disputing any of this. How did you get that I was from my comment? I fully understand where the term assault rifle came from. That's why I put the '' around the words 'assault weapons' in my post.

Learn to properly construct your comments and I, among others (Old Dude), may understand you. No need for a response. I am quite positive it's not worth my time to decipher it.

An "assault" rifle wasn't used in the sandy hook shootings. Do some research before making yourself look stupid again.

I understand what you are saying. even though it seems most people disagree with you. Semi auto matic weapons are a person's weapon of choice when commtting crimes,especially mass shhootings. But if you think about it logically. If there is a ban on semi autos and you take semi automatic weapons out of the hands of these random shooters. They are just going to go to the next best thing. Take away the semi autos and they will just use semi auto shotguns like the benelli, Saiga or Mossberg 930. If we have 10 shootings where shotguns were the weapon of choice they will ban semi auto shotguns. if we have 10 shootings were pistols were used they will take away pistols. Most handguns can fire as fast as you can squeeze the trigger. What will they do then? Take away shotguns and handguns? I'm sure if the government could get away with it, they would take away all the guns. I'm sure they would be quite happy with a disarmed American public.

That the best argument you have? Only thing not worth anyone's time around here, is trying to debate the brainwashed masses like you who just fall into line when the government tells them to.

They are not interested in facts, only what lies they can use to further their agenda to enslave America.

Here is my take on all this. Just look at what has happened in England. In the 80s they put a ban on "assault" weapons. Then in the 90s a ban on handguns followed. See the pattern, That is one reason most law abiding citizen oppose a ban on any type of guns. No one can guarantee our saftey from crimals. It takes the law over 30 minutes to get to me place. Do the math people. Open your eyes liberals. Americans will NOT accept any ban on guns! Period.

That's what most people don't understand. The police aren't there to protect us, they always show up after the crime. It's left up to the citizens to protect their self. If you are depending on a cop to show up to kill the guy trying to rape your family, your family is going to be raped. They don't pack a gun to protect us, they pack one to protect their self.

RE-READ your post...you said what's next,semi automatics....that's why I decided to post that "assault" weapons ARE semi automatics. I 'm on your side here...it just bothers me that people think other semi autos aren't as dangerous as "assault" weapons.

Yeah, I, understand what you mean. But to the brainwashed masses, they don't understand the difference. To most of them 'assault rifle' means something you see Rambo using, and they can't seem to differentiate between the two.

For what it's worth; a revolver can be shot as fast as a semi auto pistol,just check out any Jerry Miculik video on YOUTUBE. If the anti gun left had their way all guns would be outlawed. Feinstein's bill basically outlaws a huge number of semiauto pistols like Glocks and Sig Sauers because they have detachable magazines..her bill further states that in addition to all the guns she wants banned that the attorney general has sole discretion to ban any gun he sees fit. Can you imagine allowing ANY gov't official to have that power let alone our current attorney general ERIC HOLDER who sold guns to Mexican drug cartels? Why has the gov't ordered over 1 million AR 15's and millions more rounds of ,223 ammo for the dept. of homeland security? They want what they are trying to keep you from having. This fact alone makes me raging mad at anti gun nuts.
