Real AK-47s are extremely rare and valuable (as in, I could buy this AK-47 or a new compact car) in the US. Undoubtedly what he was holding was an AK-47 "pattern" rifle, which is a semi-automatic variant, and functionally no different from any other semiautomatic rifle. Which, by the way, are rarely used in crimes. It's just another example of fact-free fear mongering from a gun grabber, hell bent on enacting legislation that would make an immeasurably small difference in the amount of gun violence happening in the US.

The Democrats are making some big mistakes right now in pushing so hard against guns. A lot of registered Republicans voted for them this time around (myself included) because we felt that the Republican candidates were failing on issues regarding things like FISA, etc...

I was 'hoping' that that the gun thing was a settled issue, and we could look at some of the actual problems our country faces. Unfortunately it seems that the Democrats are now just assuming that the swing voters are permanent.

•Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

Personally, as a liberal gun owning Democrat, I think gun training should be required before gun purchase. This clown does no good for either side.


I'd support a tax credit for anyone who buys a real gun safe and takes a proper storage, precaution, and maintenance course.

The problem with a lot of proposed training is that it's too concerned with teaching how to shoot well. I don't really care if you are a good shot. I care that you know WHEN to shoot, how to maintain your firearm, how to handle it safely, etc. The amount of firearm injuries due to poor aim probably number in the single digits.

Firearm safety courses shouldn't even need you to fire a gun.

Bit'O'Gristle: "A lot of people don't know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law," Morrissey said on the floor, according to the Examiner, assuring other lawmakers that the gun was not loaded.

/epic facepalm. First of all, the murders committed in the USA with an AK, or a AR, or any other type of "assault" weapon are far and below the numbers killed by handguns and knives. You're just waving that AK around because it looks scary and ZOMG we should ban it, even though the facts don't support doing that. And yes, it would have been funny if he was waving it around like a retard, and it went full auto..spraying a full magazine into the ceiling. Would have been like watching a hamas vid.


You NEVER go full auto.

WhyKnot: meat0918: WhyKnot: Gun control laws that I don't think people would argue with:
• background checks
• safety certificate in associate with classification of weapon you are purchasing (similar to what is required when getting a hunting license)

Sounds good to me.

Question though.

How does the current law handle hand me downs?

Don't know how current law handles it.

With respect to proposed legislation...maybe ownership would require the safety certificate, thus if you are found to be in possession of a weapon and you are safety certified, you can be fined and your weapon impounded until you pass the required safety course.

Maybe certain crimes can result in your certificate being revoked and/or suspended...violent offenses/diminished capacity (drunk in public/DUI, etc)

Maybe certain medical issues could result in your certificate ring revoked...certain prescriptions/institutional commitment, etc.


One of the questions you are asked here in VA (can't remember if it is the Federal or State application) is if you are addicted to Alcohol or Drugs, or if you have any violent offenses. Or if you have been deemed mentally unstable.

So your "suggestions" are already in effect.

Same as private sales, no record other than when it was originally bought.

Have a couple from my dad with the original sales receipts(from Ohsmans!) in the boxes.  Have more from him that he bought off of friends/acquaintances that have passed through god knows how many hands, the oldest is from 1920's, the newest is from the 1980's.

BTW, that looks like an AK sold DURING the Clinton ban, as it has a thumb hole stock. Can anyone confirm? That would make this really funny.

By assuring people the gun was unloaded, he failed one of the first rules of gun ownership.

Based on that picture he failed all the rules of gun ownership.


Doesn't it also go without saying that anybody in the legislature is probably mentally incompetent to be carrying any sort of firearm?

He does keep things interesting around here though.

And yes, our lawmakers are allowed to pack in the statehouse. there's a fun story about one of them fiddling around with his hand gun when it discharged. shot a hole through the door and the wall across the way barely missing a couple of aides walking by.

Millennium: BronyMedic: Gun Thread? I think some margaritas are in order! Play the gun thread drinking game!

On another note, I guess they didn't come unarmed this time. Glad to see events are progressing exactly as people predicted in FARK threads with responsible gun ownership. And by responsible, I mean using them to intimidate and silence people who disagree with you.

Odd sort of patriot, that is.

And this was a guy favoring gun control, trying to make other people as scared of weapons as he is.


You are correct. This fact must be emphasized, because that motive means that his behaviour was perfectly acceptable.
