Pincy: Sorry, I can't comment on this until I know the exact make and model of each of his 47 guns.

And just because they have been called "antique collectibles" doesn't mean they are 16th century muzzle loaders.
A Viet Nam era M-16 fully automatic is an antique and quite collectable

Bluffing is not joking. Bluffing is weaponized uncertainty. Is it a form of terrorism and should be punished as such.

However conspiracy to commit violence and intentionally empty threats to commit violence are two different crimes. They are both crimes to be sure but one is a 20-40 years in prison type and the other is the 0-5 years in prison type. Applying a blanket punishment to both is willful ignorance.

Johnny Ringo: My fight's not with you, Holliday.
Doc Holliday: I beg to differ, sir. We started a game we never got to finish. "Play for Blood," remember?
Johnny Ringo: Oh that. I was just foolin' about.
Doc Holliday: I wasn't.

D_Evans45: 47 guns? Just how many guns do you need?

With some people there's never enough. There was a Farker who had a list of all his firearms in his profile and he could have been close to that number.

snocone: An assault weapon is any of various automatic and semiautomatic military firearms using an intermediate cartridge.[1] In the United States, there is a variety of statutory definitions of assault weapons in local, state, and federal laws that define them by a set of characteristics they possess. Using lists of physical features or specific firearms in defining assault weapons in the U.S. was first codified by the language of the now-expired 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban.[2] sometimes described as military-style features useful in combat.[3] A common usage is to interchange the term with assault rifle, but unlike that term, "assault weapon" has no consistent or specific definition and so is subject to varying definitions for varying purposes, especially favored by gun grabbers promoting their agenda.


Yes well if we just outlawed any gun that could take an external magazine, required gun owners to turn those types of fire arms in, and required those guns with an internal magazine to allow no more then two rounds at a time to be loaded into the firearm we would not be worrying about assault rifles and high capacity magazines.

/Yes two shots that is all you get.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: snocone: [2] sometimes described as military-style features useful in combat.[3]

Put a folding stock on my 22 250 bolt action rifle and you have an "assault" weapon.

How about a compass or a bottle opener?

/so want a bottler opener
// Now I really want to watch Deal of the Century again


Only if the compass is in the stock, and also has a thing that tells time.
