That's a lie, of course. Gun companies and magazines began calling them that back in the '80s or '90s, it made gun nuts feel all macho to have an "assault weapon" instead of a .223 with a plain ol' wooden stock.
ALL guns should be feared when in the hands of criminals and crazies. You're not a reasonale OR sane person, which is why you say such ridiculous things.
Like most libs you wouldn't know an assault weapon from your azzhole..... I,like MANY AR-15 owners,use mine for hunting deer and varmints. Unlike mentally deficient libs who aquire them to do mass shootings. Those are whom you should fear,your fellow mentally ill libs.

LOL...that's your answer? Seriously?
They've got two men down in pursuit of these dangerous criminals, have killed one and have the other on the run, what do you want?
Ordinary citizens with a .38 in their back pocket couldn't catch a rabbit, much less a couple of dangerous terrorists.
Do you think that average, armed citizens are more effective than cops and FBI? Yes or no??
Then what are you afraid of? If ordinary citizens are nothing to fear? Why gun control? Are we more effective than the cops or FBI, in certain circumstances YES! The cops and FBI seem to arrive just in time to take down the report. Ever hear of safety in numbers? Our numbers aid in preventing alot of crimes. If perps don't know whether you are armed or not, they are less likely to attack you.

We must rely on them, since no armed citizens were able to stop the two bombers from blowing up people at the race, right?
Or apprehend or kill the bad guys?
Or do much of anything?
This is the job we HIRE cops and the FBI for....to take changes, track down bad guys, bring them to justice. Guess that's something new to you, or is Alzheimer's getting the better of you?
Maybe if they had worn 'I'm a bomber sign on their back' it would have helped idiot.

So what you're basically admitting is that I'm right, just snarling with insane hatred while you're doing so.

Right? ;)

We have radical terrorist on the loose here and the prez is busy taking executive action on his background checks. To me it seems that the events in Boston are being underplayed by the White House.

Agree, for 2 reasons.

1) The perps are Mooslims.

2) Firearms were not used in the attack.

3) Obama doesn't want to reduce focus on Sandy Hook and gun laws.

The current Democrats are so stupid they will never understnd the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights much less fix anything. I am suprised they sober up enough to remember to clean themselve up. Most of them look pretty shabby.

Gun control only works in Russia. There the criminals, along with the police and military, are the only legal gun toters. The only problem with that picture is that now you can't recognize the criminal from the police or military.

The Democrats who caved in look stupid as do the moderates in the GOP who had likewise.
80-90% of the American people believe that background check fit nicely with in the 'Well Regulated' portion of the second. The right has crammed it's version down America's throat . Usually there are electoral repercussions when the will of the vast majority is pushed aside.
Until very recently the second has been viewed as subjected to reasonable regulation.
The second uses the the wording "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state."
It sure sounds as if the founding fathers saw a role for private gun ownership within the context, of that rights regulated, existence is in fact supporting our Gov't.
The unrestricted unregulated interpretation has drifted far from the wording of the document.
Enjoy your victory.

...... Are you naieve or just a young idealist? What we hire the cops and FBI to do? ROFLMAO!!! Try here in Ct. The crooked politicians break rules, laws, statutes, the whole deal on a proven level of felony. They then harrass those making the complaint to shut up. So I'm wondering how big is the crooked payroll here. Illegal dumping. money laundering, crooked road contracts and even a clean 100 million $$ literally walking out of the teachers retirement fund with the A.G. refusing to help. That's just a few highlights. The cops didn't stop them and the FBI never followed through on watching a terror suspect. Our Gov't has NOT been here to help or represent us for a long time now. If you were in N.Y.C. I bet you'd vote for Weiner!! You do realize he and wifey-poo are connected to Hillary at the hip? Look, it's Jew York City!!

Nancy is the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, google her history for more information.
Reid is currently setting the AGENDA of the United States Senate, his sons are a powerful K-Street law firm, they can also be googled.
No illegal guns were used in the Boston Marathon Bombing, but MSM is still asleep.
try: http://rt.com/news/chechnya-suspect-boston-bo...
....... Reid is the head of the Senate Judiciary Commitee and Blumenthal is a favorite of his. Blumenthal who is co-author of the anti-gun bill, who has robbed this state blind, who has a hand in declaring eminent domain for his buddy developers sake, who created a new electric supply monopoly, who handed David Golub 1/4 Billion $$ from Cts. tax coffers, ad nauseum...
