Fark It: Ms Fleissig's daughtrer opened the bag expecting to find an ID, she instead found the firearm.'We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,' she told the paper. 'I didn't want to touch it.'Both women were stunned.'Oh my God, it's a gun,' Ms Fleissig's daughter said. 'I said, 'I think I'm going to throw up,' she recalled. Seriously?
UNC_Samurai: Meanwhile, Joe Flacco left his slingshot in the back seat of his mom's Cutlass Supreme.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: Frank N Stein: [img.fark.net image 850x523]Lol. HoplophobsJesus f--king Christ, was this the Word of the Day in the NRAs newsletter this week, or the RNCs talking points memo?If I had driven around for two days with an unknown gun in the car - not knowing if the safety was on or off, loaded or not, REALLY not knowing why the owner didn't TRACK IT DOWN FOR TWO DAYS (*best* case scenario, too dumb to realize they left a weapon behind - worse, they left it behind *intentionally*) - yeah, I'd freak out a bit too. This is not irrational./gunsgunsgunsgunsguns!//not compensating for anything!
lilplatinum: Plus calling it a clip has the added advantage of enraging idiots.
Mikey1969: whizbangthedirtfarmer: Mikey1969: Of course, looking at the gun, I also would have my doubts that it was used in any crime, you don't often drop that kind of cabbage on your choice of weapon for drive bys...

fatalvenom: Is it possible for the mods to un-green a thread, because that would be nice.
Dimensio: Preventing the multitude of high-profile homicides committed with M1 Garand rifles is too important a goal to be bothered with details.
umad: EyeballKid: umad: EyeballKid: Publikwerks: You are not helping. There are lots of responsible people who own guns, and I don't want to make life overly difficult for them. And I am willing to work with them, but when you spout stupid like this, it puts them on the defensive and makes it an us vs them.So, these responsible gun owners will get on the defensive if making one portion of their lives inconvenient for the sake of possibly preventing a mass murder is considered? You're right, they sound like totally rational people to me.We could stop all sorts of violent crime from happening if we repealed the 4th too. Surely you wouldn't mind making your life a little bit inconvenient by allowing the police to search your house at random.Wow. So, that's the next step, then? Mr. LaPierre has trained you well. Now, sit. Beg. Give me a paw? GOOD BOY.So your convenience is more important than the lives of children!?!? You irrational people are farking scum.
Publikwerks: HeadLever: Publikwerks: Well, unless you are open to limiting the number of guns you own?Don't deflect the question. Please respond.I think someone owning 5 guys that are only capable of 6 shots is safer than someone own a weapons that is capable of firing 100's of rounds with little interruption
jigger: under a mountain: [americaswhiteboy.com image 431x554]Is there anything worse than that Barbie look? AND she's (of course) got a farking belly button thing.
EyeballKid: Frank N Stein: Liberals are supposed to be the funny ones. Save the sanctimonious crying for conservatives.And the ones who act like they're aloof and above it all are supposed to be self-absorbed, delusional dickholes. Keep up the good work.
HotWingConspiracy: This is what gun owners consider responsible. The bar gets lower every single day.
skozlaw: I came for a thread full of pictures of Ryan Tannehill's hot wife and, with few exceptions, all I got was a bunch of morons arguing about nothing for the sixteen-thousandth time since last December.You people suck.
Mikey1969: Doesn't make it illegal. Besides, loaded, not loaded ddoesn't change the fact that the gun isn't a sentient being IR anything... Yes, its always safer to unload the gun when not in use, but that doesn't justify this woman "almost throwing up"...
lilplatinum: HeadLever: lilplatinum: I am sure you call everything by it's technical name rather than any common name that has come into being through the vernacular. I'm sure, for example, that you always call the pedal that causes your car to accelerate the throttle, rather than the gas pedal.And I am sure that you call a barrel shroud a 'shoulder thing that goes up', with rest of the gun grabbers, right?No, that is not in the dictionary as a synonym for barrel shroud, so the compensators have nothing to whine about that one.

Richard C Stanford: The dumbass leaving his $2,000 dollar rifle in a rental car and forgetting about it.
tallguywithglasseson: Finding a rifle like that in a rental car in England would indeed be quite a big deal.Then again, so would a mass shooting.
lilplatinum: /guess what, assholes - the dictionary says a clip and a magazine are the same thing, so they are
netweavr: Don't they live in Florida? Why did Tannehill's wife need a rental car?
Great_Milenko: Richard C Stanford: God, just everything about that article...The dumbass leaving his $2,000 dollar rifle in a rental car and forgetting about it.The Mails hysterical all-caps ASSAULT RIFLE! head line, showing exactly how much they know about firearms.And this little gem from the "victims":"'Oh my God, it's a gun,' Ms Fleissig's daughter said. 'I said, 'I think I'm going to throw up,' she recalled."First, what's $2,00 to the wife of a professional athlete?Second, yeah, yeah, an AR-15 is as safe as a teddy bear. Whatever.And lastly, not everyone is a gun nut. Finding one in a rental car could lead any normal person to several unappealing conclusions about possible crimes committed, etc.
vpb: You can stamp your feet and pretend whatever you want, but the term "assault weapon" defined in law.
Fark It: vpb: pyrotek85:What difference does it really make anyway? There's too much focus on technical features and definitions and not how they're used and by whom.It's a matter of spin.Most gun nuts seem to feel that no one but them is competent to have an opinion on gun control based on their being able to identify their favorite guns by sight. Of course gun control is a public policy issue and not a technical gun issue. It's like saying that you need to be a gang member to decide whether drive by shootings should be illegal.Also, most gun nuts don't know anywhere as much as they pretend to which annoys me, since I am a military history buff and it's very obvious to me that they are trying to fake it anyway.I forgot how specificity and definitions aren't important when it comes to public policy.
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Responsible Gun Owners just leave their guns laying around everywhere. No charges.
symptomoftheuniverse: Was it her gun? Cause if so, that's a RGOILF. (Responsible gun owner id like to fark).
