Look. Define them and call them whatever you want. Stop getting into semantics and splitting hairs.

A semi automatic rifle with a bump stock that turns it into a fully automatic and 100 round magazine drums are legal.

Does anyone really think that is a good idea?

My favorite part: "No license required, ships directly to your door"

AWESOME!

We outlawed drunk driving. We added harsher penalties and stiffer fines even for first time offenders! And yet people still drive drunk. Isn't all these pie-in-the-sky gun restrictions the same? People that would obey them are not the ones we were worried about to begin with.

I think it would be a good idea for the general public to have that opportunity to tackle a shooter when they are changing magazines


That would be more of an argument for more licensing, not a flat-out ban. I still wouldn't wholeheartedly agree with it. I think a better idea is to make owners more responsible for weapons.

If they own a gun only they have access to that gun.
Only they possess they key or know the code to the safe they keep it in. Barring that they must keep it on their person at ALL times.

That's the idea I came up with after reviewing the investigation into the Sandy Hook shooting. But, again I'm not even sure my idea would do much to curb the level violence.

In any case have a happy new year.

Here, let me define what should be illegal, and I don't care what you call it: anything that can automatically or semi-automatically shoot more than 1 round per second.

Thanks for talking with me Cajun247. You've answered a lot of my questions. I have to run though. New Years Eve is upon us. Have an awesome evening.

MrPeabody, you fail to mention that this "citizen" Randy Weaver was a known friend of the Aryan nation, selling illegal guns and that a US Marshall also died.

"I was actually suggesting it would be malicious by accident which does happen, which your Anti-Malware company does a better job protecting people against."

I see part of where you are going with this. Malicious by accident is not a crime and our company never would have assisted in that type of situation. But using my scenario possessing a magazine that is larger than 6 rounds would be illegal. All I was suggesting was the idea of limiting the magazines to 6 rounds and letting people keep their semi-automatic riffles. I'm not suggesting taking anyones guns away. I think it would be a good idea for the general public to have that opportunity to tackle a shooter when they are changing magazines. The smaller the magazines the more times they have to swap magazines. That is how it would make a little society safer.

"Which is part of my point, we DO dangerous things everyday. I even handle dangerous materials from time to time. We trust people with explosives everyday to not go planting bombs where they could do serious damage. In an effort to make society safer for everyone you're simply making the government more of a nuisance rather than genuine institution that protects liberty."

But isn't it really hard for people to get their hands on explosives now? I don't see the relevance.

If someone is developing software that is malicious I have zero problem with the FBI raiding their house.

"Seriously should police come busting into my home because I'm developing software that could be malicious?"

I worked in an Anti-Malware group for four years. If someone is developing software that is malicious I have zero problem with the FBI raiding their house.

"Well lets see, reality also shows that 99.999+% of people aren't violent psychopaths, and despite horrible tragedies like Sandy Hook schools still manage to be safest place for kids any given day. So everyone must accept the fact there is a extremely tiny existential risk that they will die each day."

I 100% agree with you here. That is why I think it is absolutely insane for people to suggest we need to arm our teachers. Bringing guns into a safe environment is not the answer.

"No he was doing something ILLEGAL, which is not the same as wrong."

You're right. I should have said illegal.

He would be doing something wrong.


No he was doing something ILLEGAL, which is not the same as wrong. Just because something is illegal does not mean it is dangerous or wrong. Likewise just because something is dangerous or wrong is not enough to make it illegal.

"So a little boy gets harassed by police for doing nothing wrong, that's great."

He would be doing something wrong. He would be in possession of a illegal magazine larger than 6 rounds. Why do a lot of gun owners blame everyone and everything for the shootings but never want to even think about the possibilities of looking at their own world as part of the cause? And I say part because the mental health industry needs a serious revamp in the US.

They would have their large magazines confiscated and a search warrant would be issued on their house. Or they could get pulled over and an officer could find the large magazines.

Go pick up the latest People magazine and burn those little six and seven year old faces into your memory

"Seriously, what is so wrong with letting people burn rounds at the gun range anyways?"

Go pick up the latest People magazine and burn those little six and seven year old faces into your memory. If you are so into firing off large amounts of rounds join the service or become a police officer. You are at the right age.

"I understand what you're saying there, but I don't think a mass killer is really interested in a buy-back program. All the regulations and restrictions are aimed at "Stopping these senseless tragedies" and yet none of them ever help 'cause they only restrict people who would not do that."

A boy could be up in the mountains or in the woods practicing shooting and gets caught in the act. They would have their large magazines confiscated and a search warrant would be issued on their house. Or they could get pulled over and an officer could find the large magazines. Every little bit helps.

So now we have a ban that creates an inconvenience for many, and does too little to curb the level violence in our country.

Besides a firing range, going on a killing spree/robbery or some kind of Militia situation what would a civilian use an AR-15 with 30+ rounds for?

"So conservatives (generally) will oppose gun licensing / registration because of some intangible fear that the government will compile a list and raid their homes while they sleep. Hey, it happened under Hitler, right? "

Actually it has happened in the US to a US citizen named Randy Weaver in August of 1992. His wife and a 14 year old boy were murdered by an FBI sniper.

If you are unfamiliar with the story here it is:
Randy Weaver - Ruby Ridge

Here's a question I haven't seen. Besides a firing range, going on a killing spree/robbery or some kind of Militia situation what would a civilian use an AR-15 with 30+ rounds for? The only thing in the wild I could see it used for is for protecting yourself from a polar bear. Isn't it overkill for other animals? Also would you be fine with limiting the magazines to 6 rounds with a buy back program where you can trade your large magazines for smaller ones?
