  • I am Pro gun rights. also, saying " I support gun rights, but I think "assault weapons" should be banned" does not make you pro gun rights. Supporting a ban on the most popular sporting rifles in America (which are absurdly labeled as "assault weapons" doesn't put you on the pro gun spectrum

  • This is very broad. I support the right to some guns, but I don't think that you should be able to walk down the street with an M60.

  • But with regulations.

  • Regardless, any decisions about gun rights should be left up to the states to decide.

  • "I'll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands"

  • People, remember, if you're for gun control, then you are AGAINST the Constitution. A government that puts guns control into practice is ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL.

  • Pro. People should be able to defend themselves in a world that is becoming more and more violent everyday. Criminals would find guns anyway even if they were illegal, but making guns illegal for everyone can leave law abiding citizens in danger.

Do you agree tajshar?
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T20:54:32.1996976Z
Yup, I'm pro gun rights. I still support background checks, and other safety measure however. But the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.
USN276 says2015-08-13T21:12:40.7438761Z
Background checks are find. So called "assault weapon" bans are not. They are pointless
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:16:07.4926878Z
Yes assault weapons bans, do not make sense. First of all, they poorly defined what an assault rifle is. One action bolt Rifles people use to hunt Gators, are now assault rifles which is quite useless. Also, IMO, a hand-gun is more versatile than an assault rifle. Why? You can conceal it, and their is less recoil. This also's people to place their shots more accurately, which is a lot better than spewing bullets 800 RPM. Let the market decide if they want to sell it. Eventually people will not be interested in buying AR-15's and gun makers will slowly cease production.

USN276 says2015-08-13T21:19:38.4229920Z
No, fortunately they don't define any bolt action rifle as an 'assault weapon" "Assault weapons" have to be semi automatic with a detachable magazine and then have the "assault weapon" features like pistol grips. And it will be a long time before people decide not to buy AR 15s and Aks. They are popular rifles which is ANOTHER reason why they should not be prohibited. Violence wise, an 'assault weapon" ban will do nothing. Economic wise, an "assault weapon" ban can cost jobs. It's a lose lose
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:21:45.9078264Z
Wait, people use AR's to hunt? Why? Its quite expensive. Wouldn't a Bolt action be more useful and cheaper?
USN276 says2015-08-13T21:24:34.6040514Z
Some people do. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d0/PEO_M24_SWS.jpg this bolt action rifle right here is used for hunting and costs over 2,000 dollars. Regardless the weapon, you are limited to using 10 round magazines (unless you hunt boar). 5.56 ammo (AR 15 rounds) are very cheap because they are small too. Id say an AR 15 with a 10 round magazine is VERY practical for deer hunting, and with a 30 round magazine, excellent for self defense
USN276 says2015-08-13T21:26:13.1966834Z
AR 15s are great for target shooting, hunting, and self defense. They're sexy looking , practical, and fun to shoot. The pros to leaving AR 15s legal GREATLY outweighs the cons (which are really none)
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:28:27.2541718Z
Never shot a Ar-15, but I have shot a Bushmaster XM-15. The experience was thrilling. It even has a DEVGRU camp.

I like you Taj. I'm happy that your a liberal who likes guns. If I were you, id work hard to fight for gun rights amongst your party. They'll be more inclined to listen to you than conservatives (even moderates like me)
USN276 says2015-08-13T21:37:05.9296214Z
And an XM 15 is an AR 15. XM 15 is just the specific model name of the rifle
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:46:42.1725614Z
Thanks, I'm generally liberal on issues but this seems like a common sense thing to me. Why should the government tell you how to defend yourself? I need an equal footing on criminals. Plus with a 90 for 100 gun ownership rate, we only have a 4.2 out of 100,000. Not saying thats amazing, but its quite low. We need to fund mental health institutions, and teach gun safety, so people do not loose their minds. Thats why I support background checks. If they were more strict, then guys like Eric Harris, Dylan Holmes would not have had their hands on guns.
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:47:38.8321246Z
Plus, It serves as a deterrent to crime psychologically. If a criminal knows somebody out there might be armed, he might just go away. Not saying arm everybody, but CCW is great for this purpose.
tajshar2k says2015-08-13T21:48:21.0459952Z
Oh... I feel like an idiot now...
USN276 says2015-08-13T22:04:03.9472394Z
Bigger problem is psychiatric drugs. There is some evidence which provides support that psychiatric drugs (that are prescribed by doctors) influence many of the mass shootings we have. Drugs like these are over prescribed and have a lot of negative side effects. Psychiatric drugs need more research and some reform
USN276 says2015-08-13T22:10:52.9606240Z
Lol I just realized what you did there
TBR says2015-08-14T00:08:01.6814218Z
So you guys aren't left arguing among yourselves - I will take-on "assault rifles"
tajshar2k says2015-08-14T18:31:32.7756558Z
@TBR Do you mean you will buy an Assault Rifle.
tajshar2k says2015-08-14T18:31:50.0570480Z

USN276 says2015-08-17T12:57:47.3470193Z
