Dimensio: vrax: topcon: chuckufarlie: topcon: Gun murders have dropped for 20 years. But let's keep making bigger and bigger deals out of individual shootings to compensate for it, despite the fact violent crime is half of what it was in 1992.

How many children have to die before you see that there is a problem? An estimate would be okay - just give us your number.

Less and less people every year are dying to guns. Fact. Far less people are getting killed right now on a yearly basis than when the AWB was in effect.

They really need to change that one line to read "Knives and Stabbing Weapons".

That specific title was reserved for homicides committed by T-1000 units. Peaking in 1995, no such murders have occurred since.


That's because of 1995's bi-partisan anti-T-1000 legislation. The senators sold the shiat out of that one with their "Vote For Me If You Want To Live" slogan.

heypete: whidbey: I understand your point, but obviously the top rifle looks like something you would use to hunt elk or deer, and the bottom one looks like something gangbangers might use.

Fair enough. Still, I think we can both agree that they're essentially the same gun and that the function isn't really affected by its appearance, right?

Seems that there should still be some kind of strict regulation detailing what a rifle like your top example should legally be able to do.

Would you mind explaining what you mean?


I'm saying that a hunting rifle should look and perform like your top example, and there should be a legal definition.

It should not be allowed to have the features of the second model, because it's obviously for military use.
