I don't think there should be a ban on ALL semi-automatic guns, but I don't have a problem with a ban on assault rifles. There is no reason for anyone to own an assault rifle.

What is an assault rifle?

What is the difference in lets say a AR-15 and any other semiautomatic deer hunting rifle? They both work the same way its just that the AR-15 looks "scary" to folks that don't know any better...

Real full-auto "assault weapons" have been banned in the U.S. since the 1930's. Please educate yourself before your start suggesting anyone ban anything or telling me I don't have ant need for it.

The top seven buzzwords that I’m sick of hearing in the gun "control" debate…

1.“High capacity magazines” and “Extended Magazines”: folks, these are nothing but Anti-Second Amendment buzz words that are used by the media to gain support for their agenda… A 30 round magazine for the AR-15 rifle is standard capacity, as well as being the standard for many other rifles. Period.

2.“Hunting”: I’m so sick of hearing “no one needs an “assault rifle” or an AR-15 to go hunting. Where in the Second Amendment does it say anything about hunting…? Where? It doesn’t! The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about defending yourself and the country against anyone that would take away our freedoms and rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

3.“Weapons of Mass Destruction”: This buzz word is so stupid and over the top. A weapon of mass destruction is something on the line of a atomic bomb, not a rifle.

4.“High Powered Rounds”: This one has been popular with the media since the tragic events in Newtown, the rife that they are now saying that the shooter used was a .223 caliber. The .223 round is a common caliber used for varmint hunting (coyote, for example) and is less “powerful” than most centerfire rifle rounds, such as the 30.30,.308 Win or 30.06.

5.“Spraying Bullets”: folks to “spray bullets” you would need to have an actual assault rifle one that is capable of full auto-fire. A semi-auto demands that you have to pull the trigger for each shot, which would constitute a deliberate action with each shot from the shooter.

6.“Gun Violence”: There is no such thing – it’s just violence… period. By that ”definition” aka a buzzword then if someone hit another person the head with a hammer, then I guess that would “hammer violence” or if someone kicked a man in his “plums” then would that then be classified as “shoe violence”… By listening to the media you would think that firearms have their own agenda and can take action on their own…

7.“High Capacity Clip”: This one just enforces their complete ignorance of the topic – Modern rifles such as the AR-15 do not use “ammunition clips” or a “high-capacity clip” they use a magazine. If you wan to ban it at least know what it is…

Words of Wisdom from Founding Father & True Patriot Patrick Henry

“Give me Liberty, or Give me Death!”

– Patrick Henry, Virginia Convention.

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined”

(Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)

“The great object is that every man be armed” and “everyone who is able may have a gun.”

(Patrick Henry, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution. Debates and other Proceedings of the Convention of Virginia,taken in shorthand by David Robertson of Petersburg, at 271, 275 2d ed. Richmond, 1805. Also 3 Elliot, Debates at 386)

“Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”

(Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)

Do you know what a semiautomatic is?

According to the Department of Justice semiautomatic rifles of all types are used in less than 1% of all violent crime.

Most murders in the U.S. using a firearm are with handguns not long guns.

In 2005, 11,346 persons were killed with firearms while in 2010, 32,885 people died in motor vehicle accidents.Perhaps we should ban cars?

By the way the leading cause of death is government with over 260 Million people killed by government in the 20th Century.

Most of those where first disarmed by their government (for their safety) before the Democide started. Look it up do your own reasearch beyond the TV news.

You pretty well summed it up. I agree with you. We don`t need to ban the weapons we need to deal with the problem of treating the mentally ill and nut jobs in the country.

Chicago has some of the country's toughest gun laws - but - has the highest number of gun crimes. Gun laws banning any type of firearms do nothing to prevent gun crimes.

Statistics Prove: More Guns, Less Crime

Despite the onslaught of media propaganda in support of the Obama administration’s anti-second amendment agenda in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting, the statistics clearly illustrate that gun control does not reduce violent crime and in fact has the opposite effect.

FBI Uniform Crime Reports. How can anyone argue with that?

Well folks the poll above seems to suggest that most people in Scott County TN are against the Constatution, indevidual rights and freedom.

That is no big deal because - during the month of December according to FBI reports there were over 90,000 firearms sold in TN in that one month. More than any other state.

In Sweden eveyone has a real military rifle in their home and have very low crime so the problem must be with Americans not guns...
