    Yes, they do need people. A drone or a robot isn't going to knock on my door asking for my weapon.

    Features that describe an assault rifle in the eyes of the media are:

    Short
    Nimble
    Lightweight
    Pistol grip to avoid climbing.
    Large magazines.
    Medium caliber to avoid recoil during multiple firing.
    But not necessarily fully auto.

    Sure these features can be used for advantages on a hunting rifles but so would using a machine gun or a 50 cal mounted on top of your truck. These features also specialize in in-close combat particularly when shooting humans in an urban environment.

    The only feature a gun designer uses is not fully auto or not. There are a lot of other features that go into an assault rifle. I’m sure your list would be a lot longer than mine.
    We've already covered this foolishness with you, Brian.

    We've led the horse to water. You thirsty, yet?

    You say we won't give an inch? We aren't stupid. We know that translates to the same as your saying; "We'll only stick it in a little bit."
    Hey Bo Bo Tech

    Take your complaint up with the Supreem Court over your rights

    They say you don't have a "right" to posess any firearm you want.

    So your above statement is moot and wrong.

    Of course we all know you will never admit it since you are never wrong.

    Brian,

    Tell me which one of these is a "Short, Nimble, Lightweight, Pistol grip to avoid climbing, with large magazines and Medium caliber to avoid recoil during multiple firing."

    A LAW ABIDING citizen shot 19 people?

    What kind of laws do you have down there?

    Not strong enough ones to prevent Lougher from purchasing a 9mm semi automatic handgun legally and killing 6 Tucsonans including one precious 9 year old child.

    Her parents spoke out today.

    The tide is turning.

    You all better start getting ready for that wave.

    mcjo,

    There is no amount of laws that can completely prevent these things from happening.


    While I'm not opposed to your training idea, these are gun guys, not psychiatrists or psychologists reviewing these potential gun owners.

    Yes, some people have good instincts, some don't, and some people WILL slip past the best screening system that you can devise.

All children may not need the certification, but they could benefit from the safety aspect. Pass course=certified upon age requirement.
    OK just as long as EVERYBODY is required to complete such a course prior to purchasing any firearm.

    So your answer is that if it doesn't stop ALL the problems we should not do anything?

    Thats just silly. If we had that same attitude for everything then there would never be any progress.

    I ask you to just think about the above statement for a few moments.

    And I asked for your solution but have yet to see it.

    I'm afraid he might be full of something else too.
