SilentStrider: Shaolin spades work well for that, i've heard

For the record, Shaolin Spades would have made a great name for a Blaxploitation Kung-Fu movie.

Ennuipoet: Well, one of the reasons we can't make any headway in gun law reform is because we keeping bringing up shiat that DOESN'T EXIST!

Americans love stupid shiat that doesn't exist.  Vampires, zombies, Jesus.  It's really all the same.

doglover: Farker Soze: What's laughable is that you don't believe, even when they tell it to your face and have been fighting for it for 30 years, that some of these politicians will not stop until all you are left with is a pea shooter and home made slingshot.

After seeing the Slingshot Channel slingshots, they'll ban rubber, too.

High capacity straws and shot pouches must go.

Ablejack: Are any of you arguing that we don't have the power to take over the government with every election?

Actually, with the way we are locked into a duopoly of democrats and republicans, whose overall service has been to corporations and their biggest donors rather than to their actual constituents, pretty much yeah.

Silly Jesus: So pass a law, that isn't based in reality as far as effectiveness is concerned, for the sole purpose of it MAYBE being a bargaining chip for passing laws that might actually do some good?

Some people just want to see the world banned.

cman: Izicata: The point of an AWB is to stop mass shootings. Most people who are shot to death are not shot to death in a mass shooting, but that doesn't mean that stopping mass shootings is a bad thing.

Australia passed their assault weaponry ban in 1996, and it was followed by more than a decade free of fatal mass shootings, and accelerated declines in firearm deaths (PDF). In comparison, the United States has had twenty-five mass shootings since 2006, seven of those in 2012 alone.

Saudi Arabia banned woman drivers and their accident rate was much lower for many years. Should we try that, too?

Ahh, deflection.  I love that tactic.

I know. It is what you want, too.

You also want civil war. You are no better than them.

Unless I am confusing you with someone else, you ARE one of them.  You certainly seem to think that a bunch of ignorant red necks who can't feel like men unless they have a weapon for a security blanket are going to make a credible military force.

Any civil war you gun nuts start will last about two hours, so let you guys be dealt with like the criminals you keep threatening to become.

You know, I used to wonder why the Honorable Dianne Feinstein seemed to be on a personal mission to remove Assault Rifles from the hands of US citizens, and restrict their use only to responsible law enforcement personnel.

Yesterday I found out. For Senator Feinstein, it's PERSONAL.

Back in 1978, when Feinstein was serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, she witnessed a double homicide when a deranged man entered city hall and gunned down SF Mayor George Mocsone and Supervisor Harvey Milk.

Obviously this tragedy had a traumatic and life-changing effect on Dianne - who actually heard the shots and was among the first to see the carnage.

Ironically, the killer, Dan White, was himself a former San Francisco City Supervisor.

The weapon he used in the murder was a pistol - the service revolver he obtained from his former work as a police officer.

Hopefully now you to will understand why Feinstein wants to ban Assault Rifles - with their deadly flash-suppressors, pistol-grips, thumb-holes, and bayonet lugs, and leave such weapons only in the hands of police.

Godspeed, Dianne.
