Quite scary how the anti's think. This is from my facebook, I don't know the person, she is a friend's friend, but I am just shocked at how she can be so ignorant (not really I know they are out there) I thought some of you might get a kick out of her. She lives in California BTW, not surprise.
"Jon I don't think the point is about what kind of guns we can purchase from a gun shop. However I also don't see the point of owning a gun that empties 20 to 100 rounds of amo / minute or what ever.( I don't know guns) If we want to play with guns like this or any gun they should only be available to play with under high security environments like shooting ranges. On a military base etc. We as the public have no reason to own guns like this. Our armed forces are 15 times of any other in the world so we are the best protected.
The guns should cost much more in the many thousands. Should be extremely difficult to get like a hunters license and every bullet should cost at least $5000.00, then people would think a little harder if they wanted to shoot somebody because they didn't put their right foot fast enough on the gas pedal in the car in front of them. I also think gun owners should have to go through vigorous physiological examinations to make sure they are not a box of cashews and should be retested every year. It should be ridiculously expensive and flooded with red tape. There should also be an age limit because statistically most violent shooting sprees happen with people under the age of 35.
The second amendment was written at a time when anyone could come through your gate rape your wife and daughters and burn your house down with them in it. Today this is less likely to happen. I have a hard time believing that this amendment was "left open" because of what technology would bring almost two hundred years later. That's just nonsense. That may be a story or a ferry tale. They had no idea back then since they only had about a hand full of styles. They were fighting wars and they were trying to protect them selves and their families. We don't need that today. (Well maybe Detroit and LA)
No other country hands out guns like skidles to the public ad the US and no one else has the violence on their streets, nightclubs, schools, office buildings and now your local movie theatre like the US as well.
The guns in our country are getting out of control when a 15 year old child shoots his parents in the head because they wont give her money to go to the movies."
