Some air rifles these days might not qualify.

There are .50 caliber air rifles in use in Europe, for hunting.

I can guarantee you that a lot of people here either never heard that, or think you're full of it. Especially the ones who currently OWN fully automatic firearms.

Gee, you mean restricted just like buying a handgun? With an extra tax?

That's "severely restricted"?

. If you can't use your gun because govt regulated gun use to be illegal then it does no good to even own them.
Banning 33 round magazines is illegal. All gun control laws are illegal.
SCOTUS is wrong. What if SCOTUS said the govt can sodomize us monthly ?
Dred Scott ?
Japanese/American WWII internment ?
The 2nd amendment prohibits GOVT from regulating guns. That is its only purpose.

[QUOTE who="harvey"]regulat ions which prevent gun use would be unconstitutional
there is no evidence, however, that banning a certain kind of gun, magazine, etc. is "illegal," banning of automatic weapons was upheld long ago by the supreme court

i repeat - the 2nd amendment doesn't "prohibit the government from regulating guns." that is clearly FALSE
What does the 2nd Amnt do ?
