    Military assault weapons.

    Sorry if this has been made before, I'm not sure.

    Why are people trying so hard to protect assault weapons from being banned? What will they use them for? If someone attacks your house, use a shotgun if need be. Could anyone give a different perspective or opinion on this?

    They're really fun to own and shoot.

    Re: Military assault weapons.

    It really depends. I'd want a normal rifle as in Hunting rifle, etc etc. Why? because all it takes is one bullet. That and a handgun but only for home protection. Nothing else. Blame the person not the gun.

    Assault rifles were needed during the l.a. Riots when swarms of people would rob stores

    Guns were primarily allowed for the people to have a means to protect themselves against tiranny.
    Whoever tries to whore gun-laws is an uninformed idiot.

    Gun control is a prerequisite for genocide.

    Okay, take the holocaust for example. What Hitler committed was genocide, and the reason that he was able to do so is because he disarmed the population beforehand. This is the very thing that the second amendment was designed to prevent.

    And let me add that everything Hitler did domestically was legal.

    Re: Military assault weapons.

    our government was founded on the principal of the people being able to make their own choices and cast off the shackles of oppression. we are basically told by the founding fathers that if at any point our government tries to seize absolute power we are to rebel and institute the government based on freedom and personal choice that we deserve. to do these things the people must be armed and watchful of all government activity. the government has assault weapons nuclear weapons tanks choppers and jets. how could we defeat an oppressive government if we didn't even have assault weapons? if we fight their swords with sticks we will become enslaved by the rich that control politics and whatever democracy left in this country will die.

    Basically, there is no such thing as an "assault weapon."

    For example, the "Assault weapons ban" enacted under the Clinton Administration banned a type of rifle that used a pistol-grip and 'military looking' stock. Another version of that same firearm - exact same barrel and weapon mechanics - that had a classic grip and stock was not banned.

    There is no definition for an assault weapon, and such a category of weapon doesn't exist.

    Now - why do I want a 6.8mm ACR with a 30 round magazine? Because I like the weapon and am proficient with weapons of its class.

    Do I -need- that weapon?

    Do you -need- a car with a 300 horsepower engine, racing tires, and a transmission designed to put that car at speeds more than double the legal speed limit of any highway in the U.S.?

    That's considered a right - a pass-time as honored as drinking on tailgates. Both of which blatantly signatures of intent to break stated laws (speed limits and intoxicated driving).

    Yet someone wants to dictate to me what a reasonable magazine capacity is for my firearm.

    I'll have that discussion with them once the only legal vehicle on a car lot is a neutered Prius.
