    Andif you think a gun is the only thing that can cause harm, think again. I betyou can Google bomb building and get hundreds of hits. As longas evil exist, they will find a way. But if you take away our gun, only thecriminal will have one.
    The problem with the rhetoric is it ignores the essential question. I can harm you with a rock.

    You have still yet to explain why you are safer with the proposed banned weapons than without. I can't even believe I have to mention this again. What is it... 6 or 7 pages now?

    So you believe nobody else should? Nobody should be able to do things you haven't done?

    It's like asking "why" a light bulb lights? NO ONE can answer that question. You can describe how it lights....but WHY does it light.

    I guess the best answer is the use for the tool. The Modern Sporting Rifle is and excellent varmint rifle. It make quick work of Hogs (big problem in Texas) Coyote, Ground hogs, Bobcat, porcupine and Raccoon

    and if there is another L.A. type riot, it makes an excellent self defense weapon.

    And we are headed for major riots in the next 3 years. The economy IS going to tank, food supplies will become more scarce. The Modern Sporting rifle is going to play a major roll in defending our families and property.

    Thats WHY I need a Modern sporting rifle.
    Wow. Ok, I guess.

    So a major riot means you need an assault rifle?

    Funny, I seem to see police trying to diffuse a major riot with plastic shields and non- lethal methods FIRST. Not that they won't pull out something else.

    That you can't even see a problem here IS the problem!

    Sheesh.

    Ok, let us try a new direction here.

    I can kill you with a rock.

    Why then develop any other weapons? Why aren't we perfectly happy killing each other with rocks?

    Why don't we fight wars with rocks?

    At this point, after pages of repeated attempts I guess there is only one thing to do.

    Please pay attention and stop the snooty arrogance.

    The POTUS said this recently, This is the anti-gun agenda. And you are f'n LOL, well good for you then since you obviously don't have a F'n LOL clue what you are talking about.

    Dumb question. You have never had to defend yourself. Must be nice to live in a nation of gun owners.

    We actually do have a problem in this nation with grenades. I am uncertain posting details, pipe-bomb is actually much less complicated or sophisticated a machine than any gun. Very simple device. You logic is foul.

    We need the weapons because we want them. Maybe to plink at empty freon drums, maybe to shoot varmits, or hunt for food or protect our homes. It is really none of your business. Gun ownership is useful. The occasional mental clown will go on a shooting spree, understood. Our nation has survived 200 years as a leading world power involved in many wars and never had a foreign invasion. We have not had a dictator rise to power. We are armed. We are AMERICANS, a free people, we have rights grated us by God and not the government. Many of these rights are enshrined in our Constitution including the second amendment.

    If you do not 'get it'....

    We all do hope the police diffuse a riot. But we do not want to give up our means of self defense if they fall short of the task.

    You should have them because you want them.

    Well, I give you credit for one thing... at least someone answered my question at last.

    Night folks, I'll have to ponder how to answer that one!

    HEY scrog! YOU APPARENTLY CANNOT HEAR. DOES IT REALLY MATTER TO THE DEAD?

    ATOMIC BOMB, GRENADE, AK47, SHOTGUN, HANDGUN, SLINGSHOT, ROCK, STICK, FIST, COLAPSIBLE STOCK, 30 RD MAG, SINGLE SHOT, RATE OF FIRE.....

    It will produce the SAME results, by the SAME deranged person. What was going to stop him?

    Your logic: ban "assault" weapons....my question: Why...how is banning a certain KIND of weapon going to PREVENT someone from dying?

    The truth is...IT WONT...what part of that do you not understand?

    Since you are sooo demanding of questions...

    In your opinion, how many lives would have been saved (at Sandy Hook) if there was an "assault weapon ban"?

    I am guessing any intelligent monkey is smart enough to use a rock to kill. We need better weapons. And we are not killing each other with them in general. We are PROTECTING EACH OTHER.
