Show me the gun that can unleash 50 rounds before the temporary insanity stops and we'll chat.

"I pointed out (correctly) that a boat is many times more complicated than a firearm,"

I would completely agree with that.

"...and also more dangerous."

That may be the dumbest thing I've ever read on here.

Per swinestine's "Assault Weapons Ban" My turkey shotgun will become illegal. It has a adjustable stock so that my wife can shoot it comfortably and accurately without a purchase of a new shotgun with a custom length of pull and comb that fits her arm and neck length. I wish people would take the time to read these bills and understand what they will do.

"Perhaps markust would agree to a mandatory speech class before exercising his 1st amendment rights?"

I COMPLETELY agree. Remember where that guy made all those inflammatory comments and 20 kindergarteners died?

Bakcagain21-"Have I made equally stupid suggestions to you to demonstrate that your average gun is more dangerous then your average boat or do you require more?"

markust123 questioned why he was required to go to class to earn a boating license but not to own a gun.

I pointed out (correctly) that a boat is many times more complicated than a firearm, and also more dangerous.

For example: He stated he had to learn (because he did not know) which side of the boat the red & green safetly lights are on so you don't run into someone. (I'm not making fun of his not knowing. A boating class is an excellent idea if you've never spent much time around boats.)

Last time I checked, none of my firearms require red & green lights to let others know which way it is heading. Nor do I require a live-vest for every person on my gun. Or a flare in case someethign goes wrong with my gun.

Ollie....Maybe it's because the constitution does not specifically guarantee that your right to own a boat shall not be infringed.

@MeGrendel "And there are many more ways you can be injured and/or killed on a boat than you can with a gun. (let's see, with a gun you can get shot, drop it on your toe or something go 'boom'...with a boat you can drown, be crushed, have limbs ripped off, suffer lacerations and abrasions, break a limb, get burnt, die of asphyxiation, and have the added dangers of tides, waves, wind, shallows, flotsom and things going boom)."

Shoot to kill, shoot to maim, I can catch myself of the slide as it reloads, I can burn someone with the heated barrel, I can use the butt as blunt weapon to crack a rib, break an arm, cave a skull, I can force someone to eat a bullet and choke to death, I can use a bayonet to inflict lacerations, I can reload and do more second round of damage unlike a boat, the added danger of kids finding them...

Have I made equally stupid suggestions to you to demonstrate that your average gun is more dangerous then your average boat or do you requ

"Sure, he also owned a lot of black people."

Add a magazine, bayonet, stand and a scope and you have yourself an assault slave.

@HG - As far as the bump firing goes, I know we've had this conversation before, but I'll say it again. The AR-15's and other semi-auto rifles people can legally own are not made to handle that high volume of fire. When you try to put that many rounds through it that fast you're going to have all kinds of problems with mis-feeding, jamming, overheating & destroying you barrel, the list goes on and on. Even if you throw a 100 round drum on there after the rifle's been thoroughly cleaned and lubricated there's a good chance you'll jam before you empty it. Have you ever seen a round that jammed and cooked off in a barrel before? If not, this is usually what happens.

Why is there not a one time course and test required for gun owners?

5Cats, up until Nov 6th I also keep something "restricted" in my house to protect myself... from the occasional boredom.

"So, again...100%?"

I said "when I send my 7 year old to school in the morning". I send him from my car in the school parking lot. SO perhaps I should have said "take". So YES, I am 100% sure. Unless you want to talk about the chances of a boat being dropped out of a cargo plane and crashing into the school.

@markust: I took the boat licence course too! Because my brother owns a boat (a nice one!) and if I ever were to borrow it (I haven't in 15 years) I'd need a boat licence.

I have a "motorcycle lisence" too, even though none of my bikes work anymore...

But there is NO WAY IN HELL I could get an "FAC" or a gun lisence here in Canada.
(FAC = Firearms Aquisition Certificate. Needed to by guns OR ammo)
That doesn't mean I don't have 3 "restricted" weapons!
2X "Lakefield" .22 calibers and a .177 air rifle.
YES! A .177 air rifle is a "restricted weapon" in Canada!

I own all three legally, so plz don't call the cops on me! (Grandfather clause eh? I aquired them in a legal way, but did not register them later since I had no FAC and they'd be confiscated immediatly.)

"You REALLY need to go to a class on how to learn these common sense things?"

If you are talking about boat safety yes. For instance you need to know which side of a boat the red and green lights are on so you don't run into someone in the dark by turning the wrong way. I have to admit I didn't like being forced to take the class but I learned quite a few things. I think the same thing would happen with many gun owners. They wouldn't want to take the mandatory course but many would learn how to be safer gun owners. Maybe if the mother of the Sandy Hook shooting had taken a course like that she would have locked up her guns properly so her son couldn't get at them.

HolyGod-"I am 100% certain when I send my 7 year old to school in the morning that he will not die in a boat related incident."

100% Sure?

From the North Kitsip Herald: "Around 6 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2010, the boat Nilluka was towing came off the trailer and struck Tabafunda’s Jeep Cherokee on the driver’s side. Reports from 2010 said he sustained a significant head injury and was killed instantly."

And I'm sure the passengers of the Sunset Limited passenger train were 100% certain they weren't going to be involved in a boat related accident. 47 people died and over 100 were injured when the towBOAT 'Mauvilla' damaged the swing-bridge over Big Bayou Canot. I remember this well, as I saw the bodies being unloaded from the barge.

So, again...100%?

"If you are unable to comprehend these simple facts, you're more ignorant than you appear (which is pretty ignorant)."

Says the guy that had to use my insult (twice) to insult me back.

Funny, the course I took today on boat safety didn't go into the thousands of working parts of a boat that you mentioned. It covered how to operate and maintain it safely. Also it went into the dangers of operating it under the influence. How to put it away safely. The correct way not to point it at other people. The same types of things that would be needed in a mandatory gun safety course.

markust123-"unbelievable ignorance and arrogance of your response "

There is no comparison between the complexity of a firearm (i.e. very simple with a few parts) and the complexity of a boat (can be fairly to very complex with hundreds, if not thousands of parts).

And there are many more ways you can be injured and/or killed on a boat than you can with a gun. (let's see, with a gun you can get shot, drop it on your toe or something go 'boom'...with a boat you can drown, be crushed, have limbs ripped off, suffer lacerations and abrasions, break a limb, get burnt, die of asphyxiation, and have the added dangers of tides, waves, wind, shallows, flotsom and things going boom).

If you are unable to comprehend these simple facts, you're more ignorant than you appear (which is pretty ignorant).

"Maybe because to most individuals that do not hold an irrational fear of an inanimate object, a firearm is much less complicated and dangerous than a boat."

The unbelievable ignorance and arrogance of your response (to a very reasonable question) tells me that a one time course and test for gun owners is needed more than I thought.

" I say the same thing about being able to shoot accurately, fast & being able to change magazines fast. The magazine issue is pointless because I can drop an empty one, slap a fresh one in there, chamber the first round (all while my sights are still on the target) and keep shooting in less than 2 seconds. "

Aren't you former military? You are trained to use a weapon. I don't have a lot of fear of trained professionals. My fear is punk asses like the f.uckers that have been doing these shootings and they are not trained or accurate and do not have the ability to do what you can do.
