The gist of the article is that some anti-gun Facebook page mistook the Halo prop gun in the picture below for a real rifle and posted the picture on their page as an example of gun owners' excess. Hilarity, unfortunately, did not ensue.

Unless, of course, you are visiting the studio where the video game is produced, and then it makes sense.

yeah. i'm generally in favor of a little more careful regulation of firearms than we have right now (and don't give me that "enforce all the existing laws" - the firearms lobby neutered the existing ones, morons). However I think a lot of the people in favor of gun control make horribly ignorant arguments. However their stupidity is always topped by the gun obsessed paranoid delusionals.

but in this case both sides really are bad for once.

People that don't own weapons are ignorant about weapons. Thank you, Mr. Romero.

I don't see a lot of talk about how people that don't have the time or interest in learning anything about firearms can be made aware of when a weapon (or a replica of a weapon) is or is not safe. If I see a guy walking down the street carrying an AK-47 looking gun, I have no idea if he's lugging a prop around for a movie studio, if he's making a political statement, or if he's going to shoot up a local Starbucks. The odds of the latter might still be slim in that scenario, but since getting shot would really suck, I'll avoid being around him and his weapon.

So, don't biatch about folks being ignorant. Figure out ways to make it obvious when they're safe.

the ability to enforce much of the background check system, etc has been neutered through sticking rules in that make the ability to build a useful database essentially impossible.

you, and the majority of supreme court justices prior to the current supreme court (along with reasonable people), have much different interpretations of the 2nd amendment.

Erm, the National Firearms Act was in 1934.  The Gun Control Act of 1968 didn't amend the NFA significantly.  The 1986 Firearms Owners Protection Act significantly modified GCA '68 for the better, and NFA '34 for the worse.

The real issue is that people are farking stupid.  The way he's holding that 'gun' he would have to have the proportionate strength of an ant.  That gun, if real, would weigh like 120lbs.

Not to mention the farking HALO pictures hung on the wall right behind him.  Any chance to get in some real good confirmation bias about tiny penised overcompensating gun nuts different people tho.

No one NEEDS a nonfunctional imitation firearm such as the one pictured. As such, prohibiting civilian possession of such items is entirely justified.

He doesn't NEED a giant prop video game gun so why should we legally allow him to have one?  I don't care that he is a law-abiding citizen.  Only politicians and police should have firearms.  We can trust them.

As an aside, I find it hilarious that we're all labelled by the media as being either "pro-gun" or "anti-gun".
 
2013-02-04 01:07:00 PM
No, no, no; that was his rifle, not his gun. One is for fighting, one is for fun.

"As people commented, a certain theme caught on: "*over compensating* me thinks 0.o", "Laugh at my small dick now!", "One inch penis.", "Dude...I am SO sorry about your tiny penis!", " Bwahahahaha!!!!!! Of course he needs a weapon like that!!!! WTF!!! This proves so many theories to be true! Thank you :)))", etc."

Actually, even *BEFORE* the laws were "neutered" in 1986 (at which point they'd only been in effect for 18 years), the ATF didn't really show any interest in going after actual felon-in-possession cases:  A congressional investigation found that they made up less than 10% of cases:

The rebuttal presented to the Subcommittee by the Bureau was utterly unconvincing. Richard Davis, speaking on behalf of the Treasury Department, asserted vaguely that the Bureau's priorities were aimed at prosecuting willful violators, particularly felons illegally in possession, and at confiscating only guns actually likely to be used in crime. He also asserted that the Bureau has recently made great strides toward achieving these priorities. No documentation was offered for either of these assertions. In hearings before BATF's Appropriations Subcommittee, however,  expert evidence was submitted establishing that approximately 75 percent of BATF gun prosecutions were aimed at ordinary citizens who had neither criminal intent nor knowledge, but were enticed by agents into unknowing technical violations. (In one case, in fact, the individual was being prosecuted for an act which the Bureau's acting director had stated was perfectly lawful.)In those hearings, moreover, BATF conceded that in fact (1) only 9.8 percent of their firearm arrests were brought on felons in illicit possession charges; (2) the average value of guns seized was $116, whereas BATF had claimed that "crime guns" were priced at less than half that figure; (3) in the months following the announcement of their new "priorities", the percentage of gun prosecutions aimed at felons had in fact fallen by a third, and the value of confiscated guns had risen.  All this indicates that the Bureau's vague claims, both of focus upon gun-using criminals and of recent reforms, are empty words.

By harassing legal firearm owners, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives discouraged lawful firearm ownership. Therefore, fewer lawfully owned firearms were available for criminals to steal or otherwise acquire. Therefore the agency's actions were entirely justified.

Yeah, like I want a competent ATF.

The point has been made within the gun community that if the ATF were to be abolished, and its duties handed over to a more respected and competent agency like the FBI, then we'd be much worse off.  We wouldn't have an incompetent whipping boy like the ATF (latest scandal:   They set up a sting operation in Milwaukee that didn't manage to actually arrest anyone of any importance, and they got one of their machine guns stolen)
