I think that your average man on the street should not have access to an assault rifle. It's a very versatile, easy to use weapon that can cause serious destruction. What does your average man on the street who seldom (or ever) sees actual mortal combat want with an assault rifle ?
Assault rifles are already illegal.
There is no such thing as a "assault rifle" it is an umbrella catch phrase which does not define any firearm in particular, checkout: http://www.policymic.com/articles/21191/nobody-really-knows-what-an-assault-rifle-is-so-how-are-we-supposed-to-ban-them
Neither. This (http://www.assaultweapon.info/) perfectly explains the devious creation of the term, "assault weapon." Assault RIFLES are already illegal. Also, they are called, "magazines" not cartridges. Guns are not printers.
Yup, so I just link them to that location. It's highly informative and not at all condescending.
Actually, assault rifles are already banned. There is a distinct difference between and assault rifle and an assault weapon. Assault rifles are fully automatic, military weapons, i.e. machine guns, which have been banned from legal civilian ownership (with very few exceptions) for many years. Assault weapons, on the other hand, is a political term coined back in 1989 to define semi-automatic look alikes. Assault weapons have features that make them look military grade, such as a folding, or collapsing stock, pistol grip, flash suppressors, etc. yet they are no more lethal than any other semi-automatic weapon.
make mental evaluations mandatory for people buying guns and their relatives and friends. but what ever u do thugs gonna always have gunz no matter what. drugs are illegal...who has the most of them--thugs, criminals dont obey laws why do ppl in congress not understand that?? they think if they pass a law everybody gonna drop what they doing to obey it...fuuck that shiit everybody gonna keep they gunz and they gonna make billions in fines and fees...its a get rich quick scheme to get money away from people an give it to the govt pig bastards...were not stupid.
Yeah because changing a magazine is so difficult.
When owning guns were banned in the UK, all had to handover their weapons. Irrespective of their purchase date or a license that their held. The Licences were revoked. Tough luck if you have purchased one. No refunds - but hand them over...
Neither. You should go the other way around and ban public appearance without assault weaponry and a large amount of ammo for everyone over 10 in the US.
Yeah, let's also ban high capacity gas tanks, so they don't cause a lot of damage when blown up.
Why would you do that ? Do you ban hammers more people are killed by them .
