  •  Couple questions.Who are you planning to kill (7+ / 0-)

    with your guns? Or,to be less inflammatory,who are you protecting yourself from? Some random event? If so,are you so armed everyday and everywhere?
    Why do you think "reducing gun crime by under two percent with a magzine ban," isn't worth mild changes in our laws? Have you any concern for those unfortunate enough to be part of that 2%? Those sacrificed for your limitless entitlement?

      protect himself from? That's why he wants and assault weapon as opposed to a shotgun or a pistol. When the officers come to raid the house, he'll be able to take part in a protracted gun battle reloading his weapon quickly and maneuvering in tight spaces like hallways and door frames.

      Ask yourself, who exactly is his militia's perceived enemy? Certainly not outside invaders, we have a professional military for that.  Nope, it's our very own government that these bastards arm themselves in preparation to kill. They even have the nerve to suggest they are defending the constitution. Yet it is the constitution that provides the power and checks and balances to our government. Therefore, his organization is basically treasonous. Yet, he calls himself a patriot.

        or not.

        Why should you, or any politician decide what is "appropriate" for self defense, when the SC just recently ruled that police/law enforcement are NOT required to provide "protection" to citizens of this country.

        And no, I'm not an "militiaman" as you seem to be enthralled with - for some weird reason/fetish.

        I live in an very rural area; at best I could get an LEO to my house in 20 minutes - at best. Why should I limit myself to what you "deem" appropriate, rather than what I feel I should have?

        •  Check out the diarists profile, he is a militia (2+ / 0-)

          man. I don't know anything about you, and I don't care.

          •  I Could care less about the diarist... (1+ / 0-)

            I only commented on your comment. What would he diarist have to do with my comment to you?

            And I'm still awaiting your answer to my last question, which you kinda tried to deflect, obviously.

            •  My comment was about the diarist, not about (0+ / 0-)

              you. I quite frankly don't give a shit about you, unless you too are in a militia. Wasn't that what your whole "movie director" bullshit was about? Turns out he's a militia leader.

              In my opinion, a shotgun, long rifle, or pistol would serve any of your needs just fine. You can defend your house with a shotgun.

              You don't need to force assault weapons on other people who don't live in the back woods just because you think they are neat shooting up the volleyballs in your backyard. I get it, it's fun, but you'll just have to do it with a regular rifle.

              That way, we can keep extremely dangerous weapons out of the hands of people with bad intentions.

              Don't even bother trying to tell me that an AR 15 isn't any more dangerous than a Remington 700. It's all bullshit. Anything that has high capacity magazines that can be changed out in seconds, should be banned, not matter what it looks like. That goes for the Sig Sauer SKS and the Ruger Mini 14.

              I don't care about pistol grips or bayonet connections.

              FYI-- I wouldn't mind people owning all kinds of weapons if they would get licenses and register them. The gun people simply refuse to do any of that. So, we have to fight for what can be done under our current court's reading of the constitution and at least limit the most dangerous weapons.
