There is no need for the amount of fire power he had. It sounds like something out of a war zone.
Quote:I have used a semi automatic rifle with susat capability. There is no need for this type of firepower required to the public, it is killing level, there is no other need for it.
Quote:Let 9mm's be legal, let shotguns or single shot loading rifles be legal. All of these have stopping power, there is no need for the range and the rate of fire in the market.
Quote:We need to be able to protect ourselves from the government! What if we were stupid enough to vote a guy into the presidency who wants to throw people who disagree with him in jail? We need to be able to stand up to the government if that happens.
Then that president will be democratically elected. What if a civilian decides he doesn't like people who are better than him and starts killing them....
Even with your argument, a shotgun, rifle and revolver has stopping power.
Well, that civilian has every right to own a gun (for some reason) and everybody has the right to own a gun in order to defend themselves from that civilian.
We need to have enough stopping power to take on the government, if it should come to that.
Don't you fear that your government might try to abuse their power?
