Assault weapons should be banned. What reason could there possibly be to fire 100 rounds per minute. Poor can.

This is an easy question. The Second Amendment was identified as one of our Creator's "God" given Rights, and that was because it enabled all Americans the ability to possess the firearm capability to overthrow a tyrannical government. George Washington was asked if there should be any restrictions on the sort of weapons the citizens may possess and he said, "NO! They should have anything necessary to overthrow a tyrannical government." This does not bother me in the least. But remember, possession does not allow anyone to illegally harm any other individual. I believe that you may do anything you want as long as you do not harm another in any way. Simply, your Rights end at my nose. If a crime (violence against another) is committed, then punish the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the more of the wimpy probations, suspended sentences, or parole! For a crime to be committed, there must be a victim and everyone has the Right to confront their accuser/victim.

A great example of why our rights should not be restricted is the young white Alabama student that was snuck up on and laid out by 4 giant thugs. MOLON LABE.

First tell me that you even know what an assult weapon is? Do you think its the big scary AR15? Did you know that most rifles used for hunting big game are way more powerful? My AR15 is the least powerful weapon that I own. But it's the most fun to shoot, it has very little recoil so even my 9yo can shoot it and they use to be inexpensive to buy and shoot until uneducated people started wanting to ban them. I promis you, getting shot with any firearm isn't something that you want to ever happen to you. But getting shot with a weapon that has the word assult in front of its name does not make it any worse. My 12ga is probably the most powerful gun I own and nobody ever talks about banning them, hell even old Joe recommends owning one. But guess what my 9yo can't shoot it nore can my wife, buy they can all shoot my AR. Please educate yourself before making statements look this on.

Who is more likely to be attacked, robbed, raped? The elderly, the weak, the young, and our women!

The US Constitution, the 2nd Amendment, and my God given right to LIFE are my reasons why I support the legality of ALL weapons. Have you ever been in a fight? Have you ever lost a fight? Have you ever come to a gun fight with a knife? I never want nor do I want my family to ever have to run and hide from a g o v t gone mad...tyrannical. Oh, and who is it that will cry tyranny? There are not many if any govts that admit to being tyrannical, oppressive, controlling or even repressive. I don't wish to see this nor did our Founders.

I never want to myself nor see or hear of any family members being attacked...well from this day fwd. I say that because my Grandfather was beat and robbed after he left his business and this was in his own yard in a very nice neighborhood and nearly 45 yrs ago! And a cousin who once owned over 30 Little Ceaser restaurants was also beaten so badly that he nearly died and this to was nearly 35 yrs ago!

God has been very good to me and my family and I pray daily that I never am confronted with such an aggressor, not towards me, my family or anyone I happen to be near. I don't want to harm or kill anyone, but I don't want to be harmed or killed either.

The 2nd Amendment and my right to defend myself will live with me all the days of my life.
