I'm not sure why anyone needs to buy assault weapons such as the AR-15 (which I believe was once federally banned), and I don't know anyone should be allowed to sell/buy ammunition over the Internet.
Indulge me on the last paragraph please.
Without Googling, tell me what an "assault rifle is" and why should it be banned?
And since I can go buy all the .223 I want at Wal Mart, why should I not get it off the internet?

Please honestly consider if this was true at this moment. At 16, everyone gets a sidearm. Honestly just think about that right now and look around you, I get nervous. It would be a more fearful society.

Why are you picking 16? I'd have gone with 21.

Surely only those with a chronically poor aim would be fearful?

Fuq 'em.

I believe he choose 16 because the original point was about drivers.

To your second question first, I don't think it should be so easy at a WalMart either but there's no screening at all on the Internet. You say you're a 40 some year old man from Michigan, you could be a 12 year girl in Budapest for all I know.

To your first question, I know where you're going with this. As you already did in the other thread. But I don't know what the need is to have a rapid fire weapon like that.

Mayor Bloomberg to the rescue with more of his stupid antics. How did this clown get elected anyway?


Mayor Bloomberg Says Cops Should Go On Strike Until Americans Give Up Their Guns - Hit & Run : Reason.com


Quote:
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told CNN's Piers Morgan last night that he doesn't "understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe."

I think at 18 every Swiss male gets screened for their army or mitilia. 2/3rds are deemed fit and are forced to join and every member gets issued 2 assualt rifles and 2 pistols to keep at home.

No jack nuts you get a Swiss Army knife and are left in the woods for a week. Who ever is left at the end of the week is in the army.

If jumping to conclusions was an Olympic sport, you would have already won the gold.

Obviously I did not say the answer is to let everyone have a gun. I'm saying it's fruitless to argue gun laws, since criminals do not follow law anyway. All the gun laws do is keep an honest man honest. Period.

And while the theater massacre was horrific and something that I hope never happens again, there was no absolute way of preventing this guy from doing what he did. Even if gun laws were more strict, he would have gotten his material some other way. If he was psychotic enough to kill a bunch of innocent people, what makes you think he would not have used illegal means to obtain his weapons? It's a moot point.

I agree you should not be able to buy any guns or ammo over the internet. While I'm for the right to own guns I also think we could improve our laws. Here in Va I'd like to see a back ground checks done for even personal gun sales. As it is today any individual can sell a gun to another individual without a back ground check of any kind. Most people have heard of the Gun Show loophole and that's it because individuals also sell guns at these shows.
