Every time there is another mass shooting, calls begin anew for a ban on private ownership of semiautomatic rifles.
I know, Lets ban Fully Semi Automatics...
Yes; Class III weapons are federally-licensed. No license is needed to own a semi-automatic firearm, at least not in the majority of States. There are, of course, States that require some sort of special ID to own a Black Rifle. These are usually the ones with the greatest deal of crime which begs the question, "Why do the few States with the most restrictive gun-control laws have the highest crimes rates?"SO, When they ban Semi-Auto Assault weapons are my machineguns still legal?
Article V, Convention of States...I say we ban the government and start over!!
I'm In.Article V, Convention of States...
The Convention of States will not rewrite the Constitution. What it will do is to reduce the power of the federal government to a level The Framers originally intended. There is no need to worry about the anti-Liberty forces erasing the Second Amendment, or having the militant homma-seck-shool lobby forcing new "anti-discrimination" laws down the throats of every individual American and every American business. The Convention is designed just to recapture the power the People have had taken from them by the federal government.
I read the entire article. Reads like the writer knows about half as much as anyone who's owned and used firearms for more than a few years. My verdict on the story? Total bullschumer. Also, look at in which paper it was published. Need I say anything more?Every time there is another mass shooting, calls begin anew for a ban on private ownership of semiautomatic rifles.www.latimes.com
I believe the proliferation of firearms in America has kept lots of people from experimenting with IEDs. Change my mind!Best way to end the alleged violence associated with Modern Sporting Rifles is to ban the thinking about them. Better yet, just pass a law that outlaws any mental process that involves firearms. If no American can even think about a firearm, then no American can ever commit a crime with a firearm. Problem solved! That was so easy...
Maybe, not as much as when my age group was still able to buy explosives with just a drivers license ( I got 525 pounds of C-4 for one job before the Feds got involved years later) but many kids are still experimenting with FELONY IEDs and some planning school attacks worse than Columbine you just don't hear about because the names are not released due to being juveniles.I believe the proliferation of firearms in America has kept lots of people from experimenting with IEDs. Change my mind!
I do know what is an Improvised Explosive Device. I do not understand how the availability of legally-owned firearms has kept various individuals from involving themselves with the aforementioned explosive devices. Maybe I'm reading too much into what was written. Think I'll go have a Fat Tire and think about other things.... . . improvised explosive device...
