being somebody who owns no automatic or semi automatic weapons(colt army 1867 revolver and replica colt 1867 navy revolver and colt 1880 and a 1894 remmington double barrel I am in favor of the assault weapon ban, I personally see no need to own guns that can go semi auto or full auto, logical rational responses only please

It's not the fact that nobody needs a semi-automatic weapon. I would agree with you on that fact. That is not enough to ban something however. By following that logic, all cars should be banned that go faster than the speed limit. Not only are they not needed, but they actually allow people to make a poor decision to drive excessively fast, endangering others. Many more people die from stupid motorists than stupid gun owners, yet i do not hear outcry to ban all Vipers.

While were at it, I dont see the NEED for someone to have a multimillion dollar car that goes 200 mph. But ya know what, people have them because they CAN and they WANT to. Are we trying to ban cars? No of course not. Peoples logic nowadays is so ****** up just because one dumbass shot up a school with an assault rifle. Do you remember virginia tech? No assualt weapons were used there, but did anyone try to ban handguns? **** nooooo. ******* people....

That's the most stupid and idiotic comparison you can make.

A car is used to get from Point A to Point B. A gun is used to kill stuff.
A car becomes a threat only and ONLY when misused (stupid driving, loss of control, etc). How the **** do you misuse a gun (inb4 "you can point it at yourself by mistake", that's not a misuse, that's a contribution to society)?!?

HOW THE **** do you compare them?!?

not to sound like i agree with either side, but guns aren't just used to kill stuff. In fact, I rather enjoy target shooting with my dad. It's just something we do together to spend time together. However, I do enjoy hunting as well. Also, we don't own any assault rifles.

Well, you can use cars for malicious purposes just like you can use a gun for malicious purposes. Yes, a gun is designed to kill. It's HOW you use that potential that determines how dangerous it is. A gun in my hands is about as dangerous as a Nerf gun, where the same gun in the hands of Grimdeath McHatredslayer is probably the single most dangerous thing on the face of the planet. Same thing with a car. I personally use a car to go from point A to point B, where Mr. "I do donuts over screaming children because I can't get an erection otherwise" is going to misuse his car's potential.

I see your point and you made a very rational argument, honestly one of the most rational I have ever heard, because in essence you are right for most people it is more of a want than a need, I know a few people however who say they need them.
yes I know it is copied from what I typed to the other user who made kind of your same argument but longer but hey I am lazy

I am sick of people like you. Saying you "dont see the need" for people like me to own my AR-15. I dont see the NEED for some fat bitch to eat 5 cheeseburgers in one sitting, but you know what, I dont say **** because that is what she WANTS to do. Yeah nobody really NEEDS a gun like that (unless military) but we have them because we WANT to and CAN. It is our ******* right, and they are fun to shoot. Just the other day me and my buddy went through about 1000 tracer rounds, popping them off like crazy, lighting up the night sky. And you know what, it was ******* awesome. Now how fun would that be with just a single shot....not fun at all. You dont NEED your gun either when it comes down to it, but you have it because you WANT it. I dont NEED to have an xbox to entertain myself, but I do because I WANT to and CAN. It is all about the WANT and CAN. So leave us the hell alone. I dont tell you what you do and dont need

I know. That's why I'm trying to buy nuclear weapons. Not because I need it but just because I want it.

An insane person with a gun can be stopped by a sane person with a gun. An insane person with a nuke can't be stopped at all after he detonates it. Your logic is severely flawed.

I respect your endeavors, and while I believe that you should be legally free to do so, the social repercussions of having such a device should make you contemplate whether or not your purchase is a wise one.

Though it would make a pretty awesome conversation piece.

Technically I inherited my guns, I am more of a car person, but I see your point and while in an angry rant of a response you made a very rational argument, honestly one of the most rational I have ever heard, because in essence you are right for most people it is more of a want than a need, I know a few people however who say they need them.

There's no real response to that, other than the fact that the assault weapon ban does not address fully automatic weapons in any compacity, as those are already illegal under the machine gun ban of 1986. Weapons made before that are grandfathered in past the law, and current legislation doesn't touch them. The assault weapon ban seeks to disbar the use of "military looking" semi-automatic weapons by banning specific features, such as folding stocks and pistol grips.

excellent point

Have fun when you miss the first time. You're not gonna get a second shot
User avatar #85 to #53 - Zarke (01/30/2013) [-]
Dude, what the **** are you saying? Then why bother with anything more than a single-shot muzzle-loading firearm?
#55 to #53 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
I mainly have them because I am a slight history buff but I am a fairly decent shot besides a shot gun in a house is surprisingly effective
