Thanks AV, I needed that laugh. It's unfortunate that the subject matter is so serious and ridiculous.

Between 1999 and 2009, NICS processed roughly 100 million background checks and blocked an esti-mated 1.6 million permit applications and gun sales to people prohibited by law from possessing guns.
"
I LOVE IT when you people bring out this fact, While MOST of those denials are simply paperwork errors. The ones that are real criminals illegally attempting to purchase a firearm( which is already a felony) How many were even arrested? 77. So your 1.6 million figure is just another useless number in your battle of misinformation on how well your system works.

Even Biden says he won’t prosecute the criminals because it will cost too much. So much for protecting the children “ it would cost too much”.

Lmao. Yeah yeah yeah. What happens when you go into a store, and they ask you to leave because you are open carrying?
I don't have that issue.
Btw, calling someone a criminal for concealed carry is ironic, because those who possess a CCP have undergone a way more stringent background check than someone simply buying a gun.
Well I would honor their request since it's their private business; I'd also let them know I won't be shopping their in the future and find a business which allows me to exercise my right to open carry. That's why I go to the barbershop-saddleshop to get my haircut.

<quoted text>You go got that wrong too which you got to understand the terminology & the categories of the open carry laws not like you are insinuating as if one open law is the same.
Open carry in the United States
Today in the United States, the laws vary from state to state regarding open carry of firearms. The categories are defined as follows:
Permissive open carry states
A state has passed full preemption of all firearms laws. They permit open carry to all non-prohibited citizens without permit or license. Open carry is lawful on foot and in a motor vehicle. It must be noted that while open carry may be legal in such jurisdictions per se, persons openly carrying firearms may be detained and cited by law enforcement officials for disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace in certain locations and circumstances where openly carrying could cause public alarm.
Licensed open carry states
A state has passed full preemption of all firearms laws. They permit open carry of a handgun to all non-prohibited citizens once they have been issued a permit or license. Open carry of a handgun is lawful on foot and in a motor vehicle.
Anomalous open carry states
In these states, open carry of a handgun is generally lawful, but the state may lack preemption or there may be other significant restrictions. The limitations and/or lack of pre-emption may mean that certain areas of these states are, in their judicial system and law enforcement societies, not very friendly towards the practice, although this is not true in all of these states.
Non-permissive open carry states
In these states, open carry of a handgun is not lawful, or is only lawful under such a limited set of circumstances that public carry is prohibited. Such limited circumstances may include when hunting, or while traveling to/from hunting locations, while on property controlled by the person carrying, or for lawful self-defense.
Rural open carry states
In these states, open carry is generally permitted only in unincorporated areas of counties where population densities are below statutorily-defined thresholds, and local authorities have enacted ordinances permitting open carry in such jurisdictions (California). As such, these states are also regarded as Non-Permissive open carry states.
Jurisdictions in the United StatesIn the United States, the laws concerning open carry vary by state and sometimes by municipality

I'm well aware of the laws; glad you finally found some info to educate yourself with.

I have. You have too. It made you realize that the definition is strictly based on cosmetic appearance rather than anything different in firing mechanism or rate of fire when compared to any other semi auto rifle.
You just didn't want to answer the question and admit that.
It's more than just cosmetic differences- detachable high capacity magazine, flash suppressor, grenade launcher, bayonet attachment, etc aren't just cosmetic differences.

I've always said the main reason assault rifles are more dangerous than other rifles is the attitude/motivation of the owner.

Hunters buy hunting rifles (hence the name), while survivalist anti-government wannabe pretend special forces nutjobs buy assault weapons.

Google the 25 best hunting rifles- almost all are bolt or lever action rifles in various calibers. Not a single military style "assault rifle" among them.

It's all about the attitude of the owner. But since we can't ban people, the only thing we can do is ban or at least restrict their weapon of choice.

You forget two things. The government works for the citizens which pay their salaries and pensions. And the gun owners say the second is absolute. Do you think the SCOTUS will defend their decision with their life? I bet the wont.
Again with the armed revolution rhetoric?

Exactly why we need to ban assault rifles and high capacity magazines.

That's what makes those guns dangerous- the owners.

I agree.
As I've been saying all along, EVERY right CAN be restricted with common sense justification. Therefore NO right is absolute, including gun rights.
Thanks for proving my point once again.
Btw, common sense dictates that assualt weapons should be banned, since they are designed to kill as many people in as short a period of time as possible.
They are already banned without the $400 federal firearms stamp that is issued to those licenced to sell or own an automatic assault weapon.

I see you have never been hunting in Africa..........Or Alaska......

Most guides will carry the largest semi auto rifle they can get.......

I also see you have never hunted ground squirrels.......99 percent of the guns are semi auto and the AR is probably the number two gun.....

But what do you expect from a gay boy liar????
