Yeah I know the gun, it is one big, heavy joker, I wouldnt want to lug that thing around through the woods all day. Like walking around in there with an 8 foot peice of landscaping timber...

Yep..That's exactly what its like. And last we went hunting he still hadn't put a sling on it yet. All I know is I wouldn't pack that thing around all day.

i can appreciate that. my gat has a standard issue 100 rd clip (dont think they make them with any other) and i had to have my mom write a permission slip for me to buy it when i turned 18 because it is classified as a pistol ( and a military style assault weapon).

i was gonna get a glock (this was back when wal-mart sold glocks) but the new desert eagle was much more appealing and a bucket car and my calico was a much more sound investment.

still want a desert eagle, plus a .357 S&W with the wooden grip (that shoots out 2 foot flames when youre firing at night).

i would love an uzi, but would settle for a tec-9. hell, i would be happy with a simple ar-15.

the sad thing is i now have the money and ability to have them all and i guess have outgrown the desire.

Yeah I used to love the guns, not so much anymore. I'll still have my basic stuff in my dads safe back home, but got rid of most of the goodies I had. Before coming to China.

When I get back though I want to buy that pistol, I can never remember the damn name but it's a revolver you can shot 45. cal or 410 shells with it.

I am a gun owner and have always been a pro-gun kinda woman, but I firmly believe that assault weapons, like the AK47 used to slaughter our 3 police officers a few weeks back, should definitely not be made available and sold to civilians (though there are other ways people could obtain them, i.e. black market. etc.).

So the argument is...some nut job in PA goes nuts, and kills 3 cops after fighting with his own mother over a dog pissing on the floor and some neighbor is quoted as saying "he was worried about the government taking away his guns so he snapped" so common sense says...the government should impose rules to take away guns? Doesn't that mean its more likely for more nut jobs to snap in retaliation?

If the governemnet takes away guns from Americans, they'll just kill each other with bows and arrows or pipe bombs or something. This is a stupid "solution" to a much deeper problem...

It (banning these guns) is an unrealistic "solution" to the problem...
If you ban the guns so that they cannot be obtained legally, the nut-cases will just obtain them illegally. But we will all feel better because instead of 100 people having these types of weapons only 5 or 6 nut-cases will have obtained them illegally. The media will report how much better we are doing by removing most of these weapons from the streets and everyone will feel good about themselves.

But it doesn't matter because it was only the 5 or 6 nut-cases we had to worry about in the first place. AND THEY STILL HAVE THE GUNS!

The ONLY way to stop a problem like this is to make the punishment for it MUCH more severe. I'm not quite sure how you do that in such a politically correct country such as ours...too damn many tree-huggers...
remember the kid who spray-painted graffiti on a building in Indonesia? Have yuo ever wondered why there is no graffiti in Indonesia? Because when you deface property in Indonesia they SMACK YOU WITH A CANE UNTIL YOU LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS FROM THE PAIN. I'm guessing you won't spray-paint things again...
Severe. But it works.

This is garbage. Hunting is not the only "sport" or recreation you can do with a gun. What about shooting the shit out of a bunch of cans and trees and junk?

Or plain old self-defense? Ever think of that? You can defend yourself pretty well with an assault weapon, even against a heavily armed opponent. Ironically, the guy in Pittsburgh demonstrated exactly that, although obviously the cops are not the ones you're supposed to be defending against.
