Tell you what. I'll shoot my 22, you shoot an AR-15, I will prove you wrong.

I don't want to take away your guns - on the contrary, I want you to keep your guns. Oh, by the way - you want ammunition for that gun? It's going to cost you - 1000% markup. Don't believe me? Try shopping for an AR online now in the wake of the mass killings - go ahead and check.

And if you're ignorant to believe that this will all blow over and things will return to normal, along with gun prices - think again. No vice ever goes down in price.

I don't live a life of paranoia, unlike you. I don't sit at home and wait with gun till some imaginary "thug" comes through the door. Thank God your chance of ever having to use that gun are remote. With the exception of a gentleman on this forum that goes by the name of "Sly West," you are waisting your time beating your chest. Move to Detroit - I'm sure the homies there can give you some pointers on how to look real gansta' with your gun.
Again, where do you get your information? Sure the prices will go back down.

Like I said a full auto is seldom used in a crime. They said there were 8 seconds of full auto fire. You can't run a mag for 8 seconds out of an AK47. It will run through much faster. Maybe it was full auto and maybe it wasn't full auto. They are misidentified all the time. The news reporter never called it full auto

Crain, that wasn't a question. You're the last idiot I'd ask to clarify anything. Well, the second to last- I remembered the Sam's Club.

Maybe it's a tie...or redundant...

Are there loads of Americans who are embarrassed by their gun laws like the rest of the sane world are for them, or is there a general universal thread of engrained mental illness prevalent throughout the majority of the population?

Considering the firing/cycle rate of a full auto AK-47 is 600 rounds per minute, 8 seconds of auto fire would have been 80 rounds. AK magazines are 30 rounds. There are a few 50 round mags out there. Anything more than that is an aftermarket drum magazine that is going to jam before cycling the full magazine capacity.
Your article said nothing about confirmation that the weapon was in fact fully automatic. Did the shooter possess a class three license? Did the shooter even own the weapon used? If he in fact had psychological issues, how did he purchase a firearm? That's already illegal.

info:

There are currently 37 states here in the U.S. that allow the possession of automatic weapons. The requirements are that you submit an application to BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco &, Firearms & Explosives. As part of that application a complete criminal background investigation is done and you must submit a set of current fingerprints as part of the process.(Finger Prints fee's vary from $15-$20 depending on the state of residence)

Once approved, you will be required to pay a one-time fee of $200 for a Federal Tax Stamp per weapon (There are NO, REPEAT NO additional FEE'S,Dealer's Licenses or anything additional required!!)

With the GCA of 1986 (Gun Control Act) Civilians are not allowed to posess fully automatic weapons unless they were manufactured prior to 1986. The weapons manufactured before 1986 are "Grandfathered" meaning they can still be LEGALLY transfered thru a licensed/bonded Class III NFA Weapons Dealer.NO fully automatic weapons made after 1968 are legal for civilians to own or possess.

In addition the permit once issued requires that the permit be with the registered licensed weapon at all times and especially when transported. You must also show proof that the registered weapon is stored in a safe or locked container that meets BATFE guidelines. Issuing the Permit also allows BATFE to make a personal inspection of your residence or storage area once annually.(Usually announced prior by appointment)

Several states have their own state restrictions or laws of ownership for these weapons and a person who is licensed with the weapon is subject to the state laws of any state he visits or may travel thru.

If you can find a grandfathered AK-47 or M-16 you can technically purchase it but they are extremely rare and quite expensive......You would be better suited to pick something easier to obtain

but the US problem is the individual states regulate their gun laws as per state , so we have 50 codes ...

the Central government has nothing to do with inside of the states borders as for gun control

a nato round is made to be universal , why ???so the nato gi.s can use any nato ammo regardless of country... now it would be un-wise for the opposing force to be able to use the nato ammo and visa/versa ..... west [nato] is a red cook-off shell and the east is a green cook-off shell ......... now as a civil you can not get a nato round .... only authorized people , police/military etc etc
you get a imitation round , but not a nato round
Yes exactly i was just referring to a comment earlier that someone posted saying an M16 round would fire through an AK47 rifle.
