    I'm sure I could look up other weapons, but ****. Why are these weapons protected? It's not a right. It's not a freedom. Bearing arms and bearing weapons that can wipe out hundreds of people at a time are completely different entities. I get hunting. I get self defense. I don't get semi-automatic assault rifles.

    Dude's mom LEGALLY owned a sig saur .223. Why is that allowed? ****....


    Look. I'm not for a gun ban. But why are guns like this legal? Why the **** are the necessary?

    the AK47s sold in the US are semi automatic, not fully automatic like you see in the movies

    Thanks for the Memories Suarez!

    You see, anywhere else in the civilized world, in countries where access to, and sales of, guns are strictly and tightly regulated, it would simply be unthinkable that an elementary school teacher would be the kind of person to want to have guns around the house. Teachers are peaceful people. Normal peaceful people do not like guns. America is different to 'normal' places, sadly.

    People in the rest of the world also don't feel that they should have guns in their homes so that one day they can maybe shoot an intruder. The whole mindset of so many people in the US is simply warped by comparison with other civilized societies.
    You have made some of the most ridiculous comments I have ever heard.

    "it would simply be unthinkable that an elementary school teacher would be the kind of person to want to have guns around the house. Teachers are peaceful people. Normal peaceful people do not like guns. America is different to 'normal' places, sadly."

    Why can a law abiding elementary (obviously responsible) teacher own a gun?

    Many "peaceful" people own guns and are "normal". I am both "peaceful" and "normal" and own guns.


    And the to the last comment - NEVER EVER disparage America and claim we are inferior or not "normal". We believe in a few things here in America...like constitutional rights.

    For example: we don't believe stealing a candy bar should result in having your hand cut off...Other "normal" countries do.

    Go away with your Anti American nonsense.


    A Real American HERO !!!

    Hell there are websites online where you can buy guns and have them shipped to your house. Its illegal but its out there....
    True. But that reasoning is a poor reason to NOT do enforce stricter gun laws.

    And while it's true that stricter gun laws may not keep everyone from getting weapons, if stricter gun laws can prevent any of these....the associated semi-headache with buying them should be accepted.

    I'm fine with not banning guns completely. But I do think that we need to make getting a hold of these things much, much more stringent.

    Every one, no matter what side of the gun debate, needs to walk in with the ability to make concessions. Those who want to completely ban the things cannot stand staunch in, just as though I think those who are very pro-guns need to understand we probably need to revise and tighten down the hatches to a decent degree on the ability to purchase certain guns and how easy it is to begin with.

    I understand your point, but isn't one deterrant better than none? I just feel like the "Well, the option will always be there" attitude comes up lazy in that regard. From what I understand, the guns were legally obtainted--regarding your bolded point, wouldn't that have gotten in the way of today somehow? I'm sure you'll say "well, he could have just obtainted them illegally...", but surely that's better than leaving it to chance?

    Sure. Why is a semi-automatic AK47 necessary?

    None of what any of you are saying, be it gun ownership at an all time low, or "you can get guns whether they're legal or not" are decent arguments against tightening up the legality of guns.

    One person that wants a gun to massacre a group of people that CAN'T do so because of laws is progress. Yes, people can get around laws and regulations, but that's a terrible reason NOT to do so.

    I don't have an answer for that (I don't hunt, never fired a gun, etc) but the fact remains that handguns, not rifles or shotguns, are used much more often in murders.

    Sure. Never said otherwise. Doesn't mean these weapons should be legal. It's not a freedom. It's not a birthright.

    It's excess. Nothing good comes from owning those weapons.

    I get that handguns are the most commonly used weapon in terms of crime (most accessible?)...doesn't mean it's OK that other weapons are legal.

    Yeah. Right to bear arms. Got it.

    Should we all be able to bear nuclear weapons? That's "bearing arms", is it not?

    **** dude. **** was written 300 years ago when a gun could be fired every 30 seconds.. Own a pistol for self defense, a basic rifle for hunting, and leave the semi/fully automatic **** for the military/police.

    yea but not in mass shootings. the other violence can be fixed eventually but you cant predict when a mass shooting is gonna happen, better it be with handguns than aks.

    And as much as I'm a fan of the Constitution, we should occasionally revise documents and laws that were set forth 200+ years ago, 200 years before anyone would have thought this even possible.

    You wont find me debating your ability and your right to bear arms. It's the debate on what arms you should have the right to bear. And that's where I think the revision needs to be done.

    exactly, some things need to be revised. at the time it was a great idea/right but now there's over 300 million people and even more guns, its a different story.
