HighlanderRPI: It's not about guns - never was - it's about control.
HighlanderRPI: People in this thread who think the 2nd is about strictly home defense and/or hunting are hilarious.It's not about guns - never was - it's about control.
AdolfOliverPanties: Question: Is a rifle a weapon?Answer: yes.Then an assault rifle is an assault weapon.Just like an assault carrot would be an assault vegetable.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: AdolfOliverPanties: Question: Is a rifle a weapon?Answer: yes.Then an assault rifle is an assault weapon.Just like an assault carrot would be an assault vegetable.No, an "assault weapon" has a precise legal definition, as it had to in order to be banned/controlled by the Assault Weapons Ban. If you have a problem with this, you may take it up with the people who defined it.Also, your analogy sucks. I might as well say "Did someone die because of negligence? It must be murder, then", even though the person may only be charged with manslaughter or a lesser charge than murder. The point is that when the law is involved it doesn't matter what you think, it only matters what the law says.
NewportBarGuy: The M4A1 "assault rifle" is fully automatic: pull the trigger once and it fires multiple rounds until the trigger is released.It is? Really? You know they only come in 3-round burst as military issue, right?Does that make the military assault rifle not an "assault" rifle.These semantics are bullshiat. Any weapon that fires a rifle cartridge, is smaller (length) than a hunting rifle and has a 20+ box of ammo stuffed into it is an "assault" weapon because it's made to assault/clear a room or storm a fixed position. That sh*t ain't home defense. You know it.
Lando Lincoln: All weapons are assault weapons. If you can't assault someone with them, then they're not a weapon.
Clutch2013: The M4A1 IS the fully automatic variant.

drew46n2: You know by now we've heard the NRA bullshiat about how ineffective gun control is, but then when we look across the Atlantic and Pacific there are 1st world nations that prove this line of shiat wrong day in and day out, so I'm pretty much done having 'conversations" with these nuts.
lokis_mentor: the A1 is safe-1 round-full auto variant.
m053486: bdub77No more posts. I'd post the whole "you're not helping" thing, but seriously, take yourself off the 'net. At least for awhile.
Gecko Gingrich: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think a revolver and a bolt action rifle were "semi-automatic"?
dgames: What a load. "What makes it different than this ranch rifle?" Because that picture of a Rugar Mini 14 .223 didn't have the available high capacity magazine in it for starters.I happen to own a crapton of guns, some of which have these sorts of magazines available. About 99% of them were left to me by my father. I keep them locked up with the sentimental value they hold for me. But I'm not antigun regulation by any means. Lock 'em all up. Get them off the streets. Tell me I have to turn mine in. I'd rather have the memory of my father through pictures and let other people have their memories come later than to see any more ridiculous people go about shooting others because of some archaic right.
FightDirector: Gecko Gingrich: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think a revolver and a bolt action rifle were "semi-automatic"? There's no bolt-actions in that 3rd pic. There's a semi-automatic shotgun...
