The only thing I have heard from gun advocates so far, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that there are only two reasons we keep assault rifles, large capacity clips and automatic weapons legal:
1. It's our 2nd Amendment right to collect them
2. They're fun to shoot.
Yeap.
When was the last time an automatic weapon was used to commit a crime? They’re quite rare in the hands of civilians.

Full auto is indeed fun to shoot.

<quoted text>I am not a fan of AK type guns but lots of people are. I support there right to shoot what ever they want. You can buy full auto if you pay the tax and get a class 3 license. They are fun to shoot but the ammo cost is to high for the thrill for me. The only thing I like to shoot are tack drivers :)
I own a semi-automatic AK-47. I seldom take it out. I do bring it out for novice shooters. They seem to enjoy it, more than I do. For me, my old Marlin 39A is more fun.

I’ll normally bring my Ruger Mini-30 with the AK. They’re amazed the two shoot the same ammo and usually say something about the Ruger doesn’t look like an assault rifle. Taking them out as a pair is intentional.

We pay good wages to attract the best talent. No union.

<quoted text>What part of homicide do you not understand, son?
The right to keep and bear arms is constitutionally protected. That doesn’t mean unjustified homicide is also protected.

I’ve never pointed any of my weapons at another human and hope never to be placed in a situation where I must. Do you know it’s a crime to point a firearm at someone without legal justification? You can’t even wave it around to intimidate legally. Even if it’s only a toy. http://www.wtnh.com/dpp/news/crime/man-arrest...

Ok, I won't tax your brain too much - I'll give you something easy you can actually get information by Googling.

Let's start with Aurora, Colorado.

Then we can proceed to the Sikh Temple slayings in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Since 1982, there have been at least 62 mass murders* carried out with firearms across the country, with the killings unfolding in 30 states from Massachusetts to Hawaii.

Of the 142 guns possessed by the killers, more than three quarters were obtained legally. The arsenal included dozens of assault weapons and semiautomatic handguns.

"Borrowing" again? Why not just post the web site?

A Guide to Mass Shootings in America
There have been at least 62 in the last 30 years—and most of the killers got their guns legally.

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/07/m...

BTW.. With all this talk of weapons, mass killings, and new restrictions...perhaps we should, as a nation. take a look at the FACT the U.S. is the largest arms dealer in the world. We sell weapons to nations that don't like us. We give weapons to drug cartels AND launder their money, too! SUCH A DEAL!

Just sayin...

Everybody "borrows."

Afterall, "everything you read on the internet is true."

And speaking of borrowing, why don't you just post this?

No, not everybody "borrows". It is stealing. I respect the authors of the articles I post enough to give credit.

I didn't "borrow" anything from the article you posted. I didn't post that one, although I looked at it, because it's too confusing for most TPX posters. I chose this one...It's very current and easy to glean information from.

Technically you "borrow" everytime you talk - afterall, somebody said it before you.

It's a public forum - relax your sphincter.

Somebody said "it" before me? No, unlike you and the puppets on this or any TPX thread, I'm very capable of having and expressing original thoughts. I will never relax my "sphincter" when dishonesty comes into the mix. It is a public forum...what does that have to do with ripping off someones work? It's so easy to give credit where credit is due...just post a link then you won't be a thief. Simple, eh?

As long as you are not altering it in any way, shape or fashion and using it for personal profit, there is no court in the land that holds juristiction over reposting original works or copyright infringement on a public forum, including Twitter.

Relax your sphincter - you'll give yourself a heart attack.

I believe he asked you about automatic as in machine gun. LA robbery is the last I remember. Must have been about 10 years ago

The supreme court has already ruled on a case like that. They can't restrict the right by limiting ammo.

So everyone does their one week of training and then never practices again?
Sure.

Practice is expensive - people buy the guns because it gives them an added sense of security. Most of them have no intent on ever using them. Besides, you'd need to qualify once every 180 days to be certified through a government or local agency. Practice doesn't make you a "Dr.Sniper." Certification does.

It's not about courts, jurisdiction or copyright infringement...it's about personal integrity, something you clearly don't understand. Why is it so hard to give credit to the author of what you post? Why do you try to make it look like your own? Simply posting the site where you got your information would clear up any question of plagiarism on your part. Easy enough...

Again, relax your sphincter.

I do usally. In this particular case I did not. So crucify me.

Why get your short hairs in a bind with me - if I promise not to do it ever again, can ya' cut me a break warden?
