  •  I don't think the ban is doable. (5+ / 0-)

    I don't think it'll pass Congress.
    I think it's going to hurt Democratic electoral prospects.

    I also think that with the millions and millions of them out there, the people who you'd most NOT want to have them are the people who will: militant right wing extremists.

      Regardless of whether or not it could pass congress. Regardless of whether or not it would hurt Democrats' re-election.

      Do you personally, as a responsible gun owner, oppose bans on high capacity gun magazines?

          "I'm completely opposed to selling automatic rifles ... I've never used an automatic or semi-automatic for hunting. There's no need to. They have no place in anybody's arsenal. If any SOB can't hit a deer with one shot, he should quit shooting." - Barry Goldwater

          Now even I am to the right of Barry Goldwater. Sad.

            I don't hunt.

            I'm of the opinion that abortion should be free, it be ONLY the woman's choice, and it is a viable option up to child birth.

            You want to use one issue to judge right and left? How 'bout that one?

          •  Semi-auto's have been used in hunting... (0+ / 0-)

            for over 100 years.

            You aim carefully, fire once.  It's ready for a follow-up shot a bit faster than a good bolt-action.  So what?  No-one simply blazes rapid-fire.  

            And legal hunters are restricted to 5 rounds or less (depending on location) in their semi-autos.

            So what is your point?  Other than that Glodwater has his spots of ignorance as strong as anyones'.
