  •  Every time I hear the the hunting argument (1+ / 0-)

    - that is "I just have this gun for hunting!" - I think of this scene from Renaissance Man, where two soldiers - recruits in boot camp - are talking about their respective dream gun. The rural kid describes his father's Winchester rifle that allowed him to take down a spectacular ten-point buck on a hunting trip - "and that's open-sight, mind - that rifle ain't got no scope."

    The kid from the city listens and says "No, no no. You want to get a Galil!" and describes a machine gun with banana clips that can pump out something like 20 rounds per second and "spread him over half a mile."

    Rural kid looks at him and says condescendingly, "Yep. You can sure shoot a lot of deer with that."

    Rifle with one to two shots = hunting gun. Rifle that can pump out 20 rounds per second = murder gun.
