Nope, you said:


Irrelevant to the thread as more people were killed with all of those combined than the scary black rifle in the Original Post.


So, logically you are correct knives of all makes and models together have killed more people than the specific rifle pictured in the OP.

Which is an 'assault rifle' and the premise of this thread which you obviously did not comprehend.

Banning this style weapon has a minimal effect. Knives kill more people.

I agreed with you, that specific rifle in the picture in the OP has not killed as many people as all the knives of every make and model.

It's completely disingenuous, a complete fallacy when a larger picture is shown that includes all makes and models of firearm versus all makes and models of knife.

But again, I agree that specific firearm in the OP pictured has not killed as many people as all the knives of all makes and models.

It is not just the specific rifle in the Original Post, it is all rifles. Which makes it highly comical when the anti-gun crowd thinks thousands of people are being gunned down by assault rifles.

Really? Just assault rifles? Ok let's go with all assault rifles verses all swords. How do they compare?

Assault rifles are made specifically for killing people. Swords are specifically made for killing people. Sounds like a fair match up.

Ask the FBI for a breakout.

Then there is the problem with the comparison. Only one specific type of firearm versus every kind of blade.

Of course you are going to get a skewed result.

And it is the one they want banned. Read the thread.

So? You know full well an assault weapons ban isn't going to happen. The pro gun nuts won't ever allow another kind of gun regulation at all ever to be passed again.

But please least don't be disingenuous about the subject. Pick a single type of knife, and that firearm, and do a side by side comparison. Otherwise, it's not a realistic data set.

Sorry, the premise of the thread is the willful mid perception of what a deadly rifle happens to be and that they actually do not kill as many people as the anti-gun crowd thinks. If you want knife murder statistics call the FBI.

But you made the claim that knives are used to kill people more often than rifles, which while strictly true isn't an accurate picture of the firearm debate.

I doubt you could make the same claim if the only knife you were allowed to choose was a butter knife.

Whats the point of having a automatic rifle.
Is it some kind of arms race over there ?

Throw it all into a fire and buy a hat for your wife and a new car

This thread is not about the firearms debate, it is aimed at that morons who think the vast majority of people killed by gunfire is done with 'assault weapons'.

The thread is not about automatic weapons. But you knew that being that you actually read the thing.

I know these gun advocates want to keep their gun so much , but inventing a fictional difference between an ordinary rifle and assault weapon , that is not acceptable.. And limiting magazine size in some state, even more unacceptable.

any gun/rifle can be used as an assault weapon.. no matter how many in magazine and no matter if it is automatic or semiauto or bolt action... didnt the militaries used to assault their enemy using powder and ball rifles ?

Thank you for reading the thread and understanding the premise of the Original Post. You may not agree but at least you get the point.

what if your neighbourhood home defense group suddenly equipped themselves with long spears and learning to use it in formation like ancient macedonian ? heck this is practically the form of assault weapon that was used in ancient times..

I would probably work with my other neighbors in Legionary tactics since they proved effective against the phalanx.

if assault weapons are so bad why are all the people in Chicago being shot with hand guns that are not even legal for the criminals in Chicago to own.

in Chicago its blacks killing blacks and most of the few legal handguns are owned by whites.

Obama is ignoring black on black gun crime and going after whites with legal guns.

Just like he is letting in illegals that take jobs the African Americans would love to have.

Why does the African American communities still vote for him and the other democrats when in the long run they just make things worse for the African American communities.

What if they revert to using Elephants like the persians and the cartagenians and break up your legionary formations and trampled your soldiers ????? Ban Elephants too ?
