Bucky Katt: $50 isn't a lot for gas.


At $3.25 a gallon that's a little over 15 gallons.  That's enough for someone to drive to a few gun shows to buy more guns.

 Gun control does work.    In this country people were heavily against any reforms on guns at all.     It is illegal to own a semi automatic rifle.   It is illegal to own any rifle or shotgun with high capacity magazines.  People got over it.  Besides the resounding reasoning of MURICA why do you need a large caliber semi automatic weapon with a high capacity magazine?

Please define "large caliber" and "high capacity magazine".


Over 6.5mm and over ten rounds.      http://parliamentflagpost.blogspot.com.au/2012/12/australian-gun-laws . html


Ah. Sweet. So these will be perfectly fine, then.

sycraft: howdoibegin: Adolf Oliver Nipples: FTFA: "No assault-style weapons of the type Moore said are becoming the weapon of choice for criminals were turned in."

Bullshiat. The rate of usage for "assault weapons" in crime has held steady at around 2% for the last 30 years. I expect lies, but this one is just preposterous.

Cool. What's the number when used in murder sprees that kill over 5 people? We're not saying we're gunna stop crime, but isn't it nice not to have mass murder?

Turns out that pistols are still the favoured weapons in that case. Also, pump action shotguns have been used as well (the Naval Yard shooting, for example). Rifles/carbines are just not used in crimes that often.


The obvious solution is to expand the definition of "assault weapon" to include any firearm model ever used in a homicide. As the term "assault weapon" is entirely arbitrary, such alteration is fully justified.

The state of California attempted to enact such an expansion, but the state governor -- evidently in the pocket of the National Rifle Association -- vetoed the legislation.

I caught that bit too. The only "assault weapons" becoming popular are the ones being brought in illegally from Mexico and those biatches are full on military assault rifles.

You mean the ones that were sent to Mexico from the US?


Yeah the ones the State Department sells to the Mexican government.

IlGreven: I'd guess all the citizens that didn't trade their sniper rifles in did still need them.

For what?

No, really; I want to know what a sniper rifle could be used for that another firearm could not be


 Define the term 'sniper rifle' for us first. Usually it is used by the gun ban contingent, as it is here, to describe any bolt-action (single shot) hunting rifle. Its single-shot status is in contrast to the auto-loading rifle, which they define as an 'assault rifle'.
 Remember, they don't want to ban all rifles, just 'assault rifles' and 'sniper rifles'. They really only want restrictions on just those two types, those that auto-load and those that don't. They will leave the rest alone. Really.

 In this case it was a simple deer hunting rifle, and a marginal one at that. But since it had a scope on it, its a 'sniper rifle' now to that group, which no civilian legitimately can justify the need to engage targets that far away. This is opposed to a rifle without optics, which they define as a 'military-style tactical rifle', designed only to engage targets at close range, which obviously no civilian has a legitimate need to have.
 Remember, those are the only two types they need to ban; those with scopes, and those without.

 Its the same logic they use in ammo discussions about the two dangerous ammo types; 'armor piercing' 'cop killer' bullets (solid tip), and 'dum-dum' 'exploding bullets' (hollow tip). They really only want restrictions on just those two types, the ones with holes in the tip and the the ones without holes. They will leave the rest alone. Really.

Oh wait Jeweller Angelos Koots admits to making sub-machine guns at his Seven Hills home and supplying them to biker groups
i.imgur.com


"Backyard arms trader Angelos Koots admitted making up to 100 of the perfectly constructed MAC 10 machine guns - more commonly seen in war zones and believed to have been used in Sydney gang shootings - at his Seven Hills house.
The guns, sold with two magazines and a silencer, were of such quality that during "Mythbuster" style tests alongside a genuine MAC 10 they fired 600 rounds a minute.

Sydney District Court heard that Koots made the guns for an associate who had links to outlaw motorcycle gangs.
The high-powered made-to-order weapons were then sold at meetings organised by a Penrith gym owner and another syndicate member, with the transaction taking place opposite a McDonalds in Glenmore Park."

Well sure he's the only arms trafficker in Australia, right? Wrong!
"A LAKE Macquarie man who was making handguns  that fell into the hands of Newcastle drug dealers was jailed on Monday for four years and six months."


But hey, back to your statement: Why do you NEED religious liberty, or freedom of the press? Why do you NEED a court with presumption of innocence, why do you NEED protection from unreasonable searches and seizures? We could play this all day long.

This made the news out here in Chicago. About a year or so ago Chicago held a gun buyback program. A gun shop/shooting club got together and turned in a bunch of inoperable/worthless guns for $100 each (I think). That group then used the money to fund a youth shooting camp and publicized what they did. Plenty of people got buttwrecked about it, and even the police weren't too happy about it:
"We host the gun turn-in event on an annual basis to encourage residents to turn in their guns so that we take firearms off our streets, and it's unfortunate that this group is abusing a program intended to increase the safety of our communities."

Maximum trolling. 10/10
