i agree. the main thing the restriction did was limit the amount of available FA firearms and drive the prices up to where only those with enough money to buy them can afford them.

I think it's total crap, what's the effin' difference??? A gun is a gun...That's like banning Everclear because it has too much alcohol, even though booze itself is legal...

Tax stamp is crap, LAC's have a tough enough time as it is financially...

Any jackwad criminal can get a full auto on the cheap (compared to us) and often do...

Any ban on any gun is a socialistic ideal and an attempt to control honest people, but for what??? We're not the ones who need supervision and discipline.

I don't like to see any gun get banned. I don't know why anyone would want one, but more power to them. I would hate to see them at the public range where I shoot, though. There are just too many idiots that come in there and don't know how to handle the guns they own. There have been "accidents" there. Just yesterday, a guy came in and the first thing the range officer always asks is, "do you have any loaded weapons?" The guy said no, and when he opened the action on an auto pistol, a round chambered. He was asked to leave for the day. A FA weapon there would be devistating and you know some fool would bring one and not know how to operate it. But, it's the only place I have to shoot, so it's there or not shoot at all.

And I was gonna ask...What kind of stats are there? I've never really heard of ANY FA firearms being used to commit crimes in my life...Even then, if they were used, where did they get them? I bet they were illegal imports. So this ban really didn't accomplish anything but making FA firearms a great investment if you have the $.

I recall an article that only one crime has been committed with a FA weapon. It was a police officer but it was his personal weapon.
Unfortunately I am on a mobile device at work so it is hard to search for it.

One of the reasons for the 2A is to protect us from a government that would overstep it's bounds into the realm of tyranny. Any law that restricts the ability to for citizens to own weapons is for the ability to keep citizens out gunned in hopes of keeping them from rebelling again. If the government can have it then it should be available to the people.

Sure for the average sport shooter they are not practical but that has nothing to do with anything. The whole "sporting purpose" thing is just another tool by those that wish more control over the people. If the government was actually working for the people there would be no need to fear the people with more advanced firepower.

As I told my hippy sister yes, I should be allowed to buy a tank and arm it if I feel the need or just desire it and can afford the price.

on the guns...
Agree. I do not thank they should be band. But I don't really won't a m60 to take to the range.

I was watching a show about snipers on the military Chanel. They said they used about 30,000 rounds of ammo for every 1 VC killed in Vietnam.

Kind of sucks when you can train someone to use 1 round to take out 1 and in some cases 2 people.
