Um yeah Assault Rifles should be BANNED in USA --- FOR CITIZENS that is.

Only police and Military need such weapons.

Not goddamn civilians...Unless of course, USA gets invaded and Civies have to literally defend their homes against similar caliber weaponry....

I mean...jesus.....

There's a reason civilians don't openly own tactical nukes, bombs, or cannons.

People who are opposed to civilian AR's don't know **** about AR's.

It is already illegal for civilians to own an automatic weapon.
There are already legal limits to how much ammunition a single magazine can hold.
I can cycle my Marlin '94 or my Remington 870 about as fast as you can pull the trigger on a semi-auto. Both of which fire a much more devastating round than an AR.

So go ahead, ban Assault Rifles. Hell, lets just magically make them all disappear.
The next mass shooter will just use a home defense shotgun and some hand made pipe bombs. That kind of carnage in a crowded urban environment will leave you longing for the days they used a Bushmaster .223.

So you're saying the plot from "Red Dawn" is not realistic? ;)

if civilians don't need them, police don't need them either

The only reason the police here have them is to protect us against the citizens who have them. Logic right? It's crazy

'cept police aren't legally obligated to protect people so why should people trust them to?

Also if you don't still don't accept that your statement contains a fallacy, then consider this: You can protect your own damn self just fine with a pistol, or a shotgun.

If legal obligation means anything to you, then people aren't legally obligated to hurt you either, inf fact they're legally obligated not to do so. So you've got nothing to worry about :)

it's not their job to protect people
#877 to #870 - jujuface (04/22/2013) [-]
Their job is to uphold the law. Guess whats against the law? Murder/Assault.

>implies police have to monitor anyone with a restraining order 24/7
>Warren v. Columbia...I see your point. Doesn't support the legality of assault rifles but I do see how one could argue the need for self defense with a weapon
