Convenience and expense. Anyone who wants a fully automatic firearm can buy one on the black market but they are expensive. there are literally millions out there floating around. Conversions, production models and home made. Shoot, if you want one that bad you can easily build one in your garage. I found a step by step guide online in less than a minute. http://www.armchairpatriot.com/Home%20Defense/Homemade%20Guns/Home%20Expedient%20Firearms%20-%209mm%20SMG.pdf
and again, no one gives a rats ass if you keep a gun in your home and end burying one of your kids in an accidental shooting..... but keep that shit away from the public and our kids..and btw, please dont be stupid about an M16 not being a weapon of war, kay? can you do that kiddo?
Thats an AR-15, spend some time learning the difference ok? M-16s are select fire and prohibited. SO you have no problem with my owning firearms for the express purpose of personal defense just so l the location where I can do so?
You can play your semantics all day long, just makes you look not very serious. That is correct, you can own a 13 shot handgun, shotgun, bolt action rifle all day long. As long as my kids are not ever at risk of being shot with your gun then knock yourself out.
It snot semantic sits facts. I'v owned firearms all my life and I can assure,no one was ever accidentally harmed. In fact, you'll find that the case with tens of million of gun owners. the AR-5 is functionally no different than a wide variety of firearms that have no resemblance to a military rifle at all. See the pic? that rifle fires the same round, has the same action and accepts any size magazine. Plan on outlawing that one as well? If not why not?
Really dont care what it looks like, this is why we cant take gun nuts seriously. You just yap yap yap and try to distract from the issues of kids and adults alike being slaughtered needlessly and never offering a damn useful idea. So lets use something we know from others and our history is worth a shot. It was called the Brady Bill, I am sure you have heard of it.
jfc... do you have ears? NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT TAKING YOUR SMITH AND WESSON HANDGUN. Have a good night. this is too irritating. Australia has none..... keep up your attitude. it sucks. good night. - less guns equal less gun death huh? JFC.....
