Default Re: Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

I concur with the others here most crimes aren't even committed by these types of weapons. I have never seen nor been threatened by anyone brandishing any type of assault rifle. I have however been threatened by a handgun, BB Gun (lol), knife, broken bottle, fist, etc.

youre from L.A. right?

everybody knows what a drive by is, dont they. infact the term "drive by is almost ingrained in modern day pop culture.

has anyone ever done a drive by with a bb gun, broken bottle, or knife?

what we really need to do is decriminalize ALL assault.

Baseball bat? Yep.

Assault rifles don't kill "more people" Fact is, a bullet comes out of a rifle just the same regardless of the classification of the rifle.

Do you really think you will stop a criminal from getting a weapon by making it illegal? I see it worked out well with cocaine, meth, and weed....

cocaine, meth, and weed are still all illegal (hypocritical to say the least.). why dont the republicans fight for legalizing those?

they used to be! drugs dont kill people, users kill people. whats the difference between a gun and a drug? why the double standard? could it be all the pharmacological lobbyists in their pockets?

libs wanna criminalize guns...

ribs wanna criminalize drugs....

and the wheels on the bus go round and round....

its all the same. if all guns are legal, why shouldnt abortion be? killing someone is killing someone, right?

yeah, so? what does that prove?

i understand the physics behind it. as soon as the pin hits the primer a bullet will be discharged at the same rate dependent on the calibur and amount of gunpowder used.

but lets keep it real here and throw out all BS semantics and rhetoric (and diversion).

i have a .22 calico that comes standard with a 100 round spiral clip that i can unload in less than 30 second (believe me ive tried and timed myself and wasted ammo just for the sake of doing it).

and i still have my 1st .22 rifle that holds about 12 shots and it would take me about 6 minutes of loading, and re-loading to get off 100 shots.

sure a single bullet leaves the barrel at the same rate of speed, but you are really muddying the issue here.

It is the furthest thing from the same.

Come walk in my shoes for a week and watch the destruction drugs do to individuals, families, communities. It makes handgun crime PALE in comparison. Honestly, people who argue for the legalization of drugs are either 1. too far into the culture itself to see clearly the damage they are causing, or 2. Care to much about their agenda to see what drugs really do, in the degree they do them.

There is not ONE family in my church that is not touched by drug use in their family. There is not ONE family in my church that IS touched by gun use in their family.

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico
Why does that sound like the stupidest thing ever. Its our fault they can't control their side of the border.

actually it is the same, and its not a church issue it is a government issue.


the ribs want guns for fun and recreation and to protect themselves from outward threats, right?

the libs want drugs for fun and recreation and to protect themselves from the threatening harsh realities of the world.

do we leave it up to just republicans to draw the line in the sand? what makes them so high and almighty to say what is right and what is wrong?

(FWIW i dont feel any safer after Gee Dub Senior's failed war on drugs, just like i dont feel any safer based on Jr's war on terrorism).

thats just me though as i witness a terroristic drug war in my hyperbolic back yard on a daily basis.

its not our fault but it is our problem.

our administrations have appointed themselves (us i.e. the U.S.A.) the world police and with that comes a cost.

...and with that cost comes people who pay.
