Exactly my point, but the pro-gun group think that the only difference is appearance.You want a shotgun or pistol for home defence, a hunting rifle to go hunting, fine but you don't need an AK for either.
Not so much restricting rights as it is restricting people from being retarded. You: "I NEED FULL AUTO ASSAULT RIFLE TO HUNT MICE DON'T INFRINGE ON MUH RIGHTS "
I'd just like to point out, without having read any prior conversation, that weapons like the AR-15 are absolutely not the problem. People who pontificate on the unnecessary nature of owning an "assault weapon" are detracting from their own cause. If you want to stop homicide, then crack down on handguns in the underground market.
>restricting rights>goodbrb, gonna ask to pass some poll taxes and speech permits!
No reason for a lock, keep the discussion going. If the personal attacks don't stop, the offenders will be banned and their posts hidden.
Because you're not a soldier. You have these weapons because you live in constant fear and you're compensating.A glock with 19 rounds is enough. A shotgun is enough. You don't need an AK to to stop somebody from robbing your home, and the chances multiple intruders enter your home with 100+ rounds are slim to none. The odds they fire all their rounds at you are even less. You act like you're in a battlefield. You're not.A pistol is enough. That fact that you're a pansy that feels he needs an assault rifle to defend his home doesn't change the facts.
>equating the petty right to own guns to the right to free speech
And how is it overboard? I assume you don't like it when conservatives and religious people try to control gays. It's the same for us gun owners. What we keep in our homes isn't hurting you, is it? We're not going out and killing people, that's criminals who do so
It's about self-defense from the government.
Stop living in a state of fear. I heard it's bad for your mental health.
>AR-15>Military gradeIt's like you don't even want to kill your enemy..223/5.56 is a bitch caliber for guys too dumb to control their fire and aim while managing the recoil.
>YOU DONT NEED 30 ROUND CLIPAZINES TO HUNT.The common law right to keep and bear arms (which is where the right comes from, the common law; bill of rights is a codification of common law rights, not a creation of new ones) is and always had been for tyranny fighting and self defense (even before America, let alone Heller). Hunting is immaterial and has nothing to do with the right. If guns were only for hunting, then the government could happily take away whatever they wanted, because no, you don't need a gun to hunt. But that's not the case. There's no right to hunt, there's a right to keep and bear arms for fighting tyranny and self defense.
Oh, so you're some conspiracy guy who thinks that the Government is gonna go street-to-street killing everyone without warning.... Why don't you just move to the middle of nowhere Alaska? Or, y'know? Out of the country to one where you don't "need" guns.
Not projecting.A pistol is the best defensive weapon for the situations you'll find yourself in. Easily concealible, large mag, powerful, small, accurate. Ammo is cheap.
5.56 is used by the US military. A lot.I don't know what rock you live under, but those are the facts. The modern AR-15 you can buy is a military grade weapon, only thing is it's a semi. And the AK neds no further explanation. It's a fucking AK.
LOLTell me how practically any legal firearm is gonna stop a person with ballistic armor.
You actually think the Government would be stupid enough to not wear enough body armor to protect against that stuff if they're gonna go on a killing spree? They think of everything. They're almost certainly going to take into account the small minority of people who have guns that fire military-grade cartridges.
