Average Americans don't need or want an AK-47, unless you consider 3 inches average.

In the wake of Aurora it is clear that the best thing we can do as a society is nothing.

Laws aren't meant to protect us directly. Rather, they're meant to protect our guns, which in turn will do the actual protecting. And, as of now, the laws protect our guns just fine.

If we need to find someone at fault here, it would be those that went to see the movie. They knew that they were going out in public, and they also knew that sometimes out in public there are bad guys. They should have been prepared for the OK Corrall, but instead they acted as though they were going out for a stroll on Sesame Street. That's what happens when you don't excercise your Second Amendment rights.

Then again I'm not American, so perhaps I simply don't understand some obvious reason citizens should not be restricted from stockpiling small arms with few if any restrictions to protect the public from violent nutters.

Dr Dreidel: How sporting is it to hunt a deer - maybe armed with antlers (which are only good from close range) and speed - using an automatic weapon, a laser sight and a 100-round drum mag?

That's why I move to ban throws in Street Fighter. It's total bullshiat! I blocked that shiat!

Corvus: Submitard:Fark Comments Editorial: You can't stop lunatics regardless of legislation

Good point! With rape laws and murder laws on the books rape and murders still happen. So let's get rid of those laws too right? Or does this stupid thinking only magically work for gun laws?

Are you claiming more laws dealing with rape and murder will eliminate those crimes?

Noone is asking for a relaxation of firearms laws....people with common sense don't believe more laws will stop anything.

The way you start losing your shiat in posts and start bolding things and using big fonts leads me to believe you are mentally unstable....why should "mentally unstable" only come into play with firearms....how do we know you're not gonna lose your shiat and plow into a sidewalk full of pedestrians.

Happy Hours: That doesn't really explain why you need 100 rounds.

Have you ever tried to fire an AK? They're not the most accurate rifle out there.

Bloody William: It's reached the point where I cringe any time a non-gun-enthusiast says "AK 47," because 99% of the time they're REFERRING TO A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GUN.

Yeah, the editorial would have been a lot more effective if it said AR-15 instead of AK-47.
