In the case of sniper rifles it looks like someone who gets on top of a building and shoots at random students on a campus. In the case of AR's it's people who take battle carbines and shoot up a school or a theater. If you don't know that's happening you aren't paying attention.
i comprehend just fine! i was hoping you were just misinformed and need enlightenment. but i truly see now that's just not the case at all. if you are so worried about what others impressions are, maybe you need to sell all your firearms and join a knitting group! BTW, most of the liberal anti-gunners already think we're kooks and bloodthirsty killers anyways! they think a father teaching his young child to shoot is a "killer in training".
BTW, what's a cheap "sniper rifle"? that's a very curious description of a rifle, i have yet to hear! please elaborate and clarify this for me. truly i am curious.
yes i know about current events with deranged individuals with guns who slaughter innocent people. i would have to have my head buried under sand not to know, but i don't think penalizing an innanimate object is the answer, like you seem to want to do, but rather penalize and prosecute the person who commits the horrible act is the answer. i'm sorry but your views to me seem just very liberal. and by others comments, they seem to agree.
