Safety measures, who could possibly be against gun safety measures? So now the gun banners are using 'safety Measures' in a shameful attempt to disguise their latest attacks on the constitution. If they call it 'gun safety', then anyone who opposes gun control is now 'opposed to gun safety'. But they are the same gun banners, indeed wolves in sheep's clothing..

The AR-15 is the most popular rifle in the world. IT is NOT used by the military. It will NOT 'spray bullets'. It fires ONE bullet for every ONE pull of the trigger, just like every other gun, including a musket. It is the number one rifle in open sight, hi-power target competition. With millions of them in the hands of responsible citizens, Less than a fraction of one percent have ever been used in any crime! And so it is indeed is a 'defenseive' crime deterrent.

In a deliberate attempt to to have public policy made by deception, anti-gunners, invented the 'assault weapon' issue, noting that the general public could not readily distinguish full-auto firearms, (sharply restricted by Federal Law since 1934) from semi-auto firearms. Since 1934, NO legally-owned full auto firearm has ever been used in a violent crime by a civilian. No semi-auto that could be 'easily converted' to full-auto is allowed to be available to the public, all designs run the BATF gauntlet, for approval, before they are put into production.

And, precisely who are these hoards of roaming criminals against which you need an AR-15? You can defend your home quite nicely with a 12 gauge shotgun or a .38 revolver.

Who are you kidding? You get off on that AR-15, and you know it! It's an extention of your dong, and don't try to tell us otherwise!

Let me tell you, I was raised around AK's and AR's of all kinds, and they sure as hell can "spray" rounds.

Stop trying to bu11shit readers into thinking that the AR is nothing but a "different looking" hunting rifle.

When I first started shooting hi-power rifle competition in the late 1980's, most everyone shot an M-1A or M-1 Garand. Over the years some started shooting the AR-15, at first they were scoffed at. The 'Mouse Gun' as it was refered to because of it's relitively tiny bullets, had to earn it's way. And over the decades, it has. It has surpassed everything in competition, including the 'Rifleman's Rifle' the legenadary M-1A! Now the vast majority of shooters in regstered iron-sight competition use the AR-15.

Surprise, surprise, Democrats (who never met a ban they didn't like) want to take your gun rights away. You will stand in line and turn in your guns, you will NOT be compensated for your property. Even if they wanted to give compensation, they can't, cause they're already broke, as a matter of fact, you will probably pay a fee to stand in line to turn in your property. And of course crime will rise dramatically, you will be at the mercy of armed thugs

FACT...You can pull that trigger awfully fast, which means that when you've got 30+ rounds in there, you can kill a lot of people very quickly.

Your not talkin' your way out of this one.

I've owned pretty much every kind of gun that you can imagine...both handguns and rifles. I have a CCW, and I carry regularly. I think that it would be fair to state that I'm a gun enthusiast.

That said, I believe that there is no need for anyone - short of law-enforcement or military - to own tricked-out assault weapons..and yes, there is a difference between a 30.06 deer rifle and an AR, so don't try to bu11shit me.

There is a certain kind of shooter who tends to gravitate toward the AR's and AK's, especially the tricked-out guns. They're the idiots who need to prove their manhood to everyone on the range.

Then there is the hunting lobby. Let's face it; if you're a hunter who needs a high-cap clip or a tricked out trigger, you're not much of a hunter, right? I mean, one and done, that's the way a skilled shooters gets it done.

On to "personal protection". Now, I've fired these guns as often as anyone on this thread, and you and I both know that - even though they're not full-auto - these guns go WAY beyond what is needed for personal protection. A nice shotgun or 9mm is plenty for home protection.

These guns are nothing but overkill for guys who get off on owning them.

You really are a BOZO...ooohhh my gun is OK, yours is black and scarry, ooohhh...OK mr. concealed carry, semi auto handguns can take 30 round mags also, so they too will be banned, and then they will discover that 30-06 deer rifles are much more powerful than AR-15's, and shotguns are the most deadly of all, and anything with a scope on it will be called a 'sniper rifle' so all of the above will be added to the list as well, you had better get a clue. I've been fighting this gun ban crowd for over 30 years now, and I can tell you they don't give a st*t about any certain kind of firearm, they hate'em all, and they will ban them all. They are the paranoid ones, they are the holophobes! You'd better do your homework, you are clueless!

You're the paranoid one. Nobody...and I mean NOBODY, has mentioned going after anything but assualt weapons.

It's people like you - the lunatic fringe who thinks that the Chinese are coming for them - who give the rest of us gun owners a bad name.

You don't need 30 shots...end of story.

Frankly, paranoid personalities like you shouldn't have access to a Daisy BB gun, let alone a hunting rifle.

What is it about those assault rifles that attracts the lunatic-fringe? Is it that they give you a sense of power that you don't really have in real life?

First of all, they are not 'assault rifles'. They are assault rifle look-a-likes. Assault rifles are selective fire, full automatic, which have been sharply restricted since 1934. And NO LEGALLY OWNED FULL AUTO HAS EVER BEEN USED IN A VIOLENT CRIME BY A CIVILIAN!!! AND, LESS THAN A FRACTION OF ONE PERCENT OF ANY SEMI-AUTO HAS EVER BEEN USED IN ANY CRIME!!! So, you must be really paranoid to want to ban them!!!

So, if they ban these guns. Does that mean that people will have to give them up? No mention of that yet. Or will they grandfathered in?. Or will it be illegal to sell them from here on in. There is a lot of question's now. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

Not my gun??? Wait and see??? Are you kdding? You people had better wake up. Gov. Chomo has been mentioning 'loopholes' and confiscation for weeks now. FYI-they consider grandfathering a 'Loophole'. The so-called 'assault weapon' ban will actually ban EVERYTHING except real 'assault weapons'. As Stated above...semi-auto handguns will be banned, because they can take 30 round magizines.(don't kid yourself, anything with a detachable box magizine can except a high capacity magizine). And the mad Governor screamed in his rant yesterday, "Nobody needs a 10 round magizine!" Yes that's right, up until now a 10 round mag has not been considered 'high capacity'. Funny how they like to change things along the way. Of course when they realize that common hunting rifles are much more powerful than AR-15's, and shotguns are the most deadly of all, and yes anything with a scope will be called a 'sniper rifle', they will simply be added to the list. And this is not paranoia, everything mentioned has already been tried in the past by these same gun banners, who are now, by their own admission, busy writing the most stringent gun controls in history!
