Why not just get rid of laws altogether? You can't stop lawbreakers anyway, so why bother? Love the logic here.

But the people that follow the laws?

You get that I was being sarcastic, right?

We could be taking action, like stepping up security, instead of passing the insane laws, is what I think this content is saying.

Because we are all talking about full on anarchy here!

Are you going to compare a semi-automatic rifle and a Nuke next?

Except that's the exact logic this whole mindset boasts. If people who want guns are going to get their hands on guns regardless of laws, why have those laws in place? The same applies to virtually every other law out there. You're not going to stop criminals from doing illegal things, so why bother with laws?

Law enforcement and preventative measures require laws to be put in place for them to work. Tighter security means **** all if access to fire arms really is that easy. It's absolutely true that someone who wants to kill will find a way to do it, that's not debatable; the difference is that someone who can't do it from a distance isn't as difficult to stop from amassing such a high body count in such short time. The fact of the matter is if guys with knives were going into schools and cutting people up, we wouldn't have this discussion because those people would be significantly easier to stop. The effects of a knife also aren't as unpredictable as the effects of gunfire, especially when cheap ammo is so easy to obtain, and as a result are much easier to treat than gunshot wounds, leading to more saved lives.

Listen here buddy. Those semi-automatic sporter rifles with those standard capacity 30 round magazines you hate so much you know some people need those.

Have you ever been to Texas, Arizona or Alabama? They have these things called Wild Boars. There and invasive species that breeds like rabbits and are tough as nails to kill. Hell I've seen a male Boar get hit 5 times near his vitals and 12 more times on other parts of its body with a .308 and continue to run at the man and try to disembowel him with it's tusks. Tell me how a person like myself owning a Semi-automatic rifle affects your life in anyway Id love to hear about it.

Also your argument ridicules. "Lets get rid of all law then huh?" No but it been proven that we get rid of laws that do not work like Prohibition. Remember that huh?

It would certainly make me a lot more comfortable to know that someone has to go through a lot more legal hoops to shoot me thirty times from a distance if they don't have access to illegal gun trade.

And you're absolutely right about prohibition, but we still have laws against drunk driving.

And that's for public safety there is nothing Beneficial about drunk driving. There are beneficial things about these guns. As for the harder thing. Have you ever bought a gun? I sit in line for 2 hours for them to test if I'm a nut-case or not while I have to sign about 3 pages of paper work. Yea not as regulated as a car but then again we ARE NOT GIVING THESE TO PEOPLE UNDER THAT AGE OF 18. In-fact In states Like PA you are not allowed to buy a 30 round magazine until you are 21 years of age.

My ex-stepdad(mom remarried since then) owned an Ithaca 37 and a Taurus Model 66 when he was a security guard, but I've never personally bought a gun, so I can't speak from experience. All I'm saying is I'd feel a lot more comfortable with a lot less 30 round magazines legally on the street.

Let me say this again. Only 3.5 percent of gun crime is committed by Long-rifles. The "assault rifle" Is a sub category of that.

Also How hard is it to change a Magazine? I myself have worked it done to changing one in a couple of seconds, A untrained man can learn this skill in a couple hours if he really applied himself. But It takes several years to truly master firearms.
