Single action revolvers can be fanned. The rate of fire can be actually be faster than a semi-automatic rifle or pistol due to the difference in physical dexterity and strength required to perform the respective actions.


Just to illustrate your point.

a reply to: Xcathdra>>>> Has anyone considered that it may be the Russians pushing this gun banning here in the US? That would certainly be what they've wanted in the past and apparently the Russians are out of control on our social media. Russians want guns banned in the US. That is not good.


Then Democrats have a major issue since 150 of them signed on to support this legislation.

This Bill would be unenforceable even if it by some unlucky miracle was passed into law. 70% (ballpark guess) of the American population would ignore it. A fraction of that percentage would openly rebel or worse.

It will all come full circle to civil unrest. Civil War. Everyone on here pretends it can't happen but stuff like this makes that possibility more real every day.

Do democrats have a death wish? What do you think was going to happen when a bill like this is introduced into the House?

The average American hates being forced to do anything against their Free Will especially the freedoms that pertain to the constitution and the bill of rights.

How stupid are these people?

There's no way in hell this bill will even get traction, let alone pass.

It's WAY too far, too quickly.

They'll need to activate at least 3 more school shooters within a month to get this thing to pass.


FBI: "Hold my beer ..."

Problem is, there are too many things the government wants us to be afraid of. The rotation, as far as I can tell, is North Korea, guns, Global Warming, Syria, terrorism, Russia, racism, illegal immigration. If they dwell too long on telling us to be afraid of guns, they may have to skip over Global Warming and Syria and go straight to Russia. They've already had to push aside some good fear mongering over Global Warming and racism. An exceptionally warm Black History Month would have been great for both. If it wasn't for this latest school shooting, CNN could have spent a couple of weeks telling us Climate Change Deniers are racists.

Feinstein was just on tv with Trump lying her snip off.

Not sure if Trump was just nodding along just to amuse her or we should be worried.

These meetings on tv are just for show. Trump isn't gonna be in the chamber while they write the bill. When they explain to Trump why they had to remove Feinstein's absurd restrictions, he'll be fine with it.

And the right wing lives and breaths "appeal to emotion". They employ it to avoid rational discussion. This thread is full of hyperbole in place of logic and facts.






This is hilarious especially the last two sentences.



You can find it funny, but just two posts above yours a zealot suggested the Shootings in Florida were done by government actors.

"They'll need to activate at least 3 more school shooters within a month to get this thing to pass. "

Other examples from this thread:

“The lefts version of legitimate rape.”

“NAZI's!

Next thing ya know they're gonna be herding us in to cattle cars.”

“They are a danger to humanity.
They, the Taliban, Boko haram, Nazis are amongst the dregs of humanity and will be the cause of the destruction of civilization”

“I guess my biggest question after we ban guns is what is next? Please submit the next big thing before we ban guns so we can become informed ahead of time. I’m thinking it will either be personal income so we have to scrape by on an allowance or maybe intelligence above a certain level, so we can’t not think for ourselves.”

“House to house searches to round them all up.
The seconds already gone,
The rest will follow.”


“I mentioned the people that would become jobless and their dependent children whose very livelihood would be struck down, leaving them impoverished and suffering malnutrition as they face the horrors of poverty’s dehibilitation on health. “

“Looks like we'll all be hiding in secret rooms behind a dresser writing in our diaries soon, if the authoritarian socialists get their way.”

YES...Hyperbole and appeals to emotion.

Image that the anti-freed douchebags get their way and all guns get taken away.


What are they going to blame when the next mass shooting happens?

House Democrats introduce bill prohibiting sale of semi-automatic weapons


House Democrats have introduced a bill banning semi-automatic firearms in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., announced Monday he is introducing the Assault Weapons Ban of 2018. More than 150 Democrats have signed on in support of the legislation, Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., said.

"Today I joined @RepCicilline and 150+ of my colleagues to introduce the assault weapons ban. It’s time for Congress to listen to the will of a majority of Americans and pass sensible legislation to get these weapons of war off our streets. #NeverAgain #MSDStrong," Deutch tweeted.



What the illegal and unconstitutional ban includes -

The bill prohibits the “sale, transfer, production, and importation” of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.

Cicilline’s legislation names 205 specific firearms that are prohibited, including the AK-47 and AR-15.

“Assault weapons were made for one purpose,” Cicilline said in a statement. “They are designed to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time. They do not belong in our communities.”

Deutch vowed during a CNN town hall last week to introduce a bill banning semi-automatic weapons.

As always Democrats are once again trying to end run around the 2nd amendment. I am more and more of the mindset Democrats like these mass shootings just so they can push their gun ban bull#.

Talk to your congressman and let your voices be heard. I do not trust nor believe the government can protect the individual and this attempt to disarm the population is dangerous.
How can you propose a bill to violate the Constitution??? That in itself has to be a crime...A conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution of the United States of America...
It is no different than to propose a bill that makes izlam the official religion of the United States...

Were just randomly changing words now rather actually replying to what President actually said? Right?

That's an odd new deflection? Points for ink-blot like creativity though. An F for reality/logic.

It was no deflection. It was an honest question. Some gun control advocates are cheering that he said this. I'm just curious what other constitutional protections they'd be ok with having stripped without due process?

Where did you see me cheer it?

This is your idiot oompa-loompa that you guys voted into office and cheer and defend on an hourly basis, not mine.

I am just curious what happens when the Cult Leader starts asking to marry your 11 year old daughter.

Still a believer?

Truth is he doesn't know or care about the constitution and never has, you guys just don't mind unless it has to do with a right YOU care about.

That's why you cheer when he talks about new laws to oppress the Free Press (your example) and that is why the Right has no credibility.

I care about everything in the Bill of Rights. That includes this. I absolutely won't defend the fact he said this.

Care to make anything else up? Credibility indeed.

By the way, calling him childish names makes you sound stupid. You're not different than the clowns who call Obama "Obummer" and nonsense like that. Grow up.

I couldn't care less what you call him, and I couldn't care less if he got impeached. You've made a bunch of incorrect assumptions here and made an ass out of yourself. I was merely pointing out you're no better than "the right" that you hate so much.

Try to post like an adult next time.
