Where did I say I would revolt? That was an observation not a threat. Don't put words in my mouth.
This country has always had at its core a principle of independence. To literally ban private property that is owned by millions of law abiding citizens, based on a miniscule percent of these types of firearms being used in crime will create serious problems.
If you want to get serious about the dialogue then maybe people should be consistent in their logic. If you want to ban AR15s because a tiny % are used to commit criminal acts, then maybe they should ban Islam in this country because a tiny % of muslims committed crimes. Sounds extreme, but it is the same exact logic.

Which begs the question, what other agenda are mass murders being perped for?
If there's on thing I agree with when it comes to the NRA is that the gun violence problem in America, is a mental health issue mostly.

We still have access to guns, we just need a license and to pass strict checks.
I have a license and had to pass a background check.

You're being flippant.
No, banning any gun will not fix the problem. Maybe it'll slow things down enough for us to get a handle on the problem?
Rather then going back and forth and getting pissed off at each other, I will ask: What is your suggestion to start addressing the issue of hatred that seems to be the root cause of all these murders?

Such a dumb idea. There are so many assault weapons out there that aren't registered that this won't do any good. If someone wants to get an assault weapon bad enough they can find one illegally.

Who cares what Australia does ?
I have no idea how to buy a gun illegally. Seriously

So a terrorist attacks American people, and the first ###ing thing she wants to do, is disarm American people.
#### you, Hillary.
For the first time in more than 20 years, support for a ban on assault weapons dipped below 50 percent. Just 45 percent of those polled in an ABC News/Washington Post survey out Wednesday, support a ban — the lowest number in more than two decades. Fifty-three percent are opposed to such a ban, the largest plurality yet.
