And yet they seem to continue worshipping a prophet that was a child rapist and who condoned the **pe of young boys and who also preached the murder of anyone who won't conform to Islamic rule.

And any Muslim who does not speak out against so-called radical Islam is just as bad as those radicals who carry out the murders.

That's true, but just remember that many Muslims do vigorously oppose and condemn radical, violent Muslims

But why does the ordinary human being need to have an assault rifle in the first place?
reply
2 ups
Well, it really isn't an assault rifle. What people fail to realize is that this gun is no different than a semi automatic hunting rifle. Just like sports cars have their appeal, the look of the guns is more appealing to people, because then they look like GI Joe in the middle east, not Jeff Foxworthy in a tree stand. That is more of a want though. Need? because I believe it's my right to defend myself 1)against people who legally or illegally obtain similar weapons, and 2) cause the Goverment can't handle our money, I surely don't trust them with my safety.

My husband owns a sword. Why does any ordinary human being need a sword. Most people have a bigger car than they need, which spew polution and contribute to global warming. Should we legislate away bigger, muscle cars. I I friends with clothes/jewelry/shoes they don't need. Some people just collect stupid shit.
The more proper question is "What would banning 'assault rifles' accomplish?" The answer is, not much. The definition of "assault rifle" is ambiguous, and has nothing to do with functionality. Fully automatic weapons are already illegal. Bans on "assault rifles" focus on cosmetic features (stuff that makes the gun "look" more badass without actually making it more deadly). These cosmetic features do make them more popular with psychos who fancy themselves a badass, but, if they were not available, the psychos would settle for the equally functional, less badass looking cousin.
(This looking badass is also why these gun are popular among collectors, I assume)

This conversation was specific to assault rifles. You just switched gears entirely into complete gun confiscation. That's an entirely different conversation. find amusing because I have seen (on similar threads) claims that "no one is coming after you guns."

I meant assault rifles when I said "guns" in my previous comment. I'm okay with people owning pistols, rifles, and shotguns.

Obviously, we must take guns away from everyone, and obviously we should kick people out/keep people out based on their religious views. Its the same logic. Punish majority for the actions of the few!!!!

So the majority are responsible owners of AR-15s? Can someone please tell me the practical use of this weapon? I understand handguns are for protection and rifles are for hunting. What's this thing for? Anyone?
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
Can you give a practical reason for a 50+ inch TV? How about a smartphone? A $5 coffee? Living in the desert? Owning a video game console? GMO crops? There are no practical uses or reasons for any of the aforementioned. But most Americans have several, or use several daily. And yes, there are literally millions of AR15s in the US belonging to responsible citizens. Having one is just a much a person's right as having a hijab would be. Neither are necessary things to have, but there are groups of people who value both. Most people who don't like Hijabs are probably ignorant about them and have never actually met/talked with someone who uses them. The same is true about people opposed to guns.

I watch TV for distraction and entertainment. Same with video games except I also blow off steam with that. Coffee tastes good and helps me wake up. I hate the desert so other than a low cost of living and cheap home prices, not sure the benefit there. Other than the desert in the summer time having its own ability to kill a person, I wouldn't likely be able to mow down 50 people with any of the aforementioned. So, other than for the military, what is an AR-15 used for by these millions of responsible people? Because I'm pretty sure I can't walk into a gun store and purchase a bazooka and I'm sure somewhere someone is upset about that. But would it be that big of a hardship to take these things off the shelves? I'm honestly just wondering here.

As big of a hardship as going off the grid for you would be. Also FYI, according to the latest reports...it was not even an AR15. I am as interested about what you are doing in your bedroom as I am interested in if the next person owns an AR15, or assault rifle, or toothpick (in case you are wondering, I really don't care). When someone tells you what gun they deem worthy of you having, I will let you know what you are allowed to do in your bedroom. In your example, I might choose to shoot an assault rifle for entertainment and distraction, because it wakes me up, and because it is cheaper than scuba diving or flying a plane. For mowing down, I can do a lot more damage with a car....add some manure and a lot more. Additionally, it is not the military's responsibility, nor any police departments to protect you or your family. Their job is to take notes and investigate and catch the bad guy...not prevent criminals from doing harm. This has been proven court case after court case.

Lol I've lived off the grid before so no hardship there. And I'm pretty sure that's not a true comparison for most people. If having this type of gun is as important to some people as having electricity or a decent shower, then I truly am scared for society. The government's job among other things is to regulate our actions. I've seen plenty of beautiful hiking spots get barred from public use because one or two idiots did something stupid there. Sucks for the rest of us, especially those who grew up going there with no problems. But I get it. They're trying to protect people and hiking there isn't something the majority of people need to do. Using your driving example, that's something people need to do to get to work. Millions of people every day rely on cars for transportation. I would see alcohol as a better comparison as that has led to the deaths of so many over the years and in so many different ways. Like the NRA the alcohol lobby must be strong because that hasn't gotten more regulated. But I still don't see a problem with tighter regulations on guns, background checks, a cooling off period, banning automatic assault rifles.... At the end of the day, would that really create a huge hardship for anyone? Really?

That is where I completely disagree. The government's job is not to regulate. That is a dictator's job. No one needs a car, that is propaganda you have chosen to abide by as a result of regulated education. When people need a safe place in college (for fear someone might have information that doesn't conform to their paradigm) society has failed. When people fear guns over people, it is again, propaganda that people have swallowed up. There are trillions of rounds of ammunition and hundreds of millions of guns (millions of assault rifles) in the US. However, more people in the US die as a result of failed medical systems (getting worse everyday) then bullets. But bullets sell, and scare people. I believe soy, corn, and wheat are raping the already un-fertile soil in the US, but I am not going to ask a demigod politician to ban them. Just as I don't want some ponzi to tell me how to defend myself, or enjoy my life. If I wanted someone to tell me what to do, I would move to a country that is designed to limit freedoms.

Sorry but I'm not falling for any kind of propaganda. I live in a place where people drive two hours to get to work. Not everyone needs cars, that's true. But some in fact do. I've seen the government work in ways to protect our freedoms while simultaneously regulating them. That's not how dictatorships work. There are plenty of other guns out there that are legal and practical to own. Taking this one off the market isn't going to cause the slippery slope to the demolish meant of the 2nd amendment like so many right wing politicians are touting. That's your propaganda working right there.

I would definitely say the majority of AR-15 owners are responsible. The AR-15 is no different than any other gun in it's ability or capacity.

I am going to be 100% serious with you. No jokes, no sarcasm. I use mine to hunt. I can legally use an AR 15 with a full 30 round magazine to hunt in my state. I try to be a respectful, responsible, and ethical hunter. I also believe in my right to defend myself. My AR enables me to do both, while not spending more money on another firearm (guns an ammo aren't cheap).
I do take a fully loaded 30 round magazine hunting with me, not because I expect to use all 30 rounds, but because I never have to worry about having enough ammo.

Other than that, I just like the look of it. As I like to say, the AR-15 looks like a sports car instead of pickup. Family and friends have nice hunting rifles that have the ability to hold just as many rounds, that are semiautomatic, and actually have much better triggers than my stock AR.

It is sad to think all those AR-15s won't even get a chance to show what they can do outside of their illegal store from that alley over there... They will just stand in that gun shop waiting and hoping someone will once pick them up and start shooting at whatever... Afterwards they will painfully rust to their last days after which they will just be thrown out into the dumpster like a garbage bag... It's a sad, sad life an AR-15 has to live through... #freedomtoallar15s #stopgunabusement

Our country is one of the few that includes accidents and suicides in "gun violence" statistics.

It is also well known that there are millions AR15's in the USA. Just the AR15. Not counting the AK, the FAL, or the hundreds of other semiautomatic rifle designs in this country. The facts of the matter is that the majority of violent crime is committed by people using handguns, not rifles.

It is also a fact that at the time of the signing of the constitution you could still own a gatling gun, a cannon, or various types of explosives without a permit. Guess the founders must have just forgot to include the "reasonable restrictions" clause huh?

Besides the gun controversy, the government and media just dance around the real issue. The man was a muslim, and Islam is not for homosexuality rights. You can say not all muslims you want but it doesnt mean anything to the muslim extremist bombings and shootings that have been happening. Islam is an issue, just as Christianity was. It is not now because its evolved in the culture of modern society. Islam is still in the dark ages compared to Christianity. If Canada and the US opens up the gates like Europe has, I can almost guarantee there will be war because of the cultural differences.

His ex also said he was mentally ill, which seems to be a common theme among mass shooters. An article I read said his father was on an anti-US show. The kid was indoctrinated to hate gays.
