    I just noticed this, LOL. Oh the irony ^_^


  2. I am against ANY weapons ban.
    A weapon is only as deadly as the person holding it.

    A pencil can be a weapon. Ask any correctional officer.

  3. This is a retarded ban anyway. Its not really a ban if everything is grandfathered in. So you mean I can go the day before the ban and buy 10 assault rifles and then the next day I can still have them. yeah that sounds like a ban to me.

  4. Most of the gun owners I know are some of the best, nicest, most upstanding individuals I have ever met. What is the world gaining by taking their guns away.

  5. so im looking at the ban. Are they proposing to ban all the guns listed? cause Im looking at a list of shotguns and there is like every model shotgun ever made on this list.... They are even trying to ban single shot shotguns?

    EDIT: Nevermind Apendix A is what it doesnt apply to

  6. So is this bill still in the House?

  7. It looks like it actually would expire 10 years from the day they pass it.

  8. No collection is nice, but the ban of sale still makes me sick.


    They will never stop inching this sh!t on us. If they took our guns in one sweep we'd flip out, so they do it in increments.

    I voted "oppose."

    A well armed populous is the best defense against tyranny.


    Thomas Jefferson: "Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry."
    It is tyranny to ban the sale of any weapons, tase proof fabric and body armor, to the public when law enforcement uses them.




    I am also extremely opposed to "Gun Free Zones." What [email protected] came up with that idea? The lack of logic there is astounding.

    The whole point of the second amendment is so you can protect yourself if the government gets out of line.
    For that reason, it is unjustifiable to allow the state to posses superior weapons.

    I plan to have an AR15 by the end of the week

    No I understand exactly what you are saying. What I was saying is that based on that fact that 10 bullets in a handgun is the cutoff is that bill, so that is the criteria they're going on.

    "Studies indicate that firearms are used over 2 million times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances.

    Have you ever been shot? shot at? I have, luckily, the only injury I had was from a hollow point of a 9mm fragment that grazed me, you know how dead I would've been without my gun?

    Ever been stabbed? bad f**king feeling, I defended myself just with my knife, you know if the guy had a gun and I didn't or 1 or 2 more guys had a knife how dead I would've been?

    I hate people who say retarded sh*t like that, I always hope people like you and your families get raped and robbed then you can consider firearm laws because honestly, people's opinion's on gun laws do change after that.

    If something I'm doing now, perfectly legal(carrying my sidearm which has 15 rounds) suddenly becomes illegal, I'm still gonna carry it, I'm not a criminal, but this f**king country wants me to be one, I'll be one.

    Omen, Dude Your a ****ing wild man.... mad props.....are you prior service? If even 15% of americans took self defense seriously i truely believe violent crimes would decline. You are not only defending yourself but others around you. You dont even have to physically act in a situation, by keeping your cool and understanding the situation you can help the police or who ever more so than a histerical ass clown.

    Haha thanks!

    No, I tried to get in the Military, not gonna work for now(security clearance issues), considering the Police academy.

    I'm 21, so maybe after a few years, I'll try again.

    I agree with the above too, most people freak out like a f**king chimpanzee on crack..... when I call 911, more than once they thought I was kidding because I'm calm and just give facts instead of OMG every 2 seconds.

  13. Completely against it. I got robbed by ****ing gang bangers (bloods). Took one down and started pounding after that the other three jumped me. Most people who would vote for it live sheltered lives. Oh yeah the only one they caught was the driver and he might get off. When I went to the police station to identify him they didn't do a fuc*ing line up. So I am supposed to trust pigs with my life. Fu*k that. The only reason I didn't bust those fu*ks was certain things are "unlicensed"

  14. Would the d0uche bags that voted "support" like to explain themselves???

    SomeWhatGifted, I'm VERY disappointed in you

  15. I'm down for biometrically labeled guns.

    Guns that can only be operated by their legal owners/purchasers.

    Wouldnt that raise the cost BIGTIME making them unaffordable for many people?
    (I dont know, I'm just guessing)

    What if you're wearing gloves?

    What if it's your wife's gun and your wife just got shot in the head?

    What if your hands are dirty(oil, food, etc...) and you need to use the gun but it can't identify you?

    What if you can take a gun from one attacker, thinking you can defend yourself against the others, but nothing happens? And this is not unlikely to happen, within arms reach, I can disarm anyone of their firearm and place two rounds in them with their own firearm in less than 2 seconds.

    Stupid idea.

    I'm pretty sure guns with biometric safeties don't exist yet.

    That's what the people who are too scared, too irresponsible, too cowardly to own/carry/use one, they think just because they can't then, everyone else can't either....

    Im not american and guns are already illegal here (except hunting) doesnt seem that bad to me. After votingin the poll im thinkin i may have to pick up a gun in case my tin foil hat doesnt work and i need to shoot infedels, lol. But seriously it would be nice to have a gun "if needed" hope i never need one. If anything i try to advocate for rights and not taking them, so my bad.

    It would raise the cost greatly, but if they did do it the gun should only take bullets that can be traced back to the biometrically labeled gun. But I'm sure people would figure out ways around this. Sick ways you know?

    Also could you imagine being framed?

    I could picture someone in jail for life, because someone framed them

    using their cum rag or some sh*t.

  24. Yeah, if I want to use your gun and you got a biometric ID system, after I knock you down and stab your eyes or slit your throat with my knife, I'm cutting your finger off, slicing a thick piece of skin and taping it to the ID part and use YOUR gun, to commit more crimes.

    Nice idea though.

    Yeah no ****, after I use your gun to commit a crime, wipe my prints off, smear your prints on, get away and get rid of your body.

    You're the prime suspect and assumed a fugitive because you can't be found.......great idea though.
