Hell, while we're at it, why not just shred the whole damn thing?

Civil rights? Who needs them. Looks like our forefathers and patriots from the revolution to the civil rights era all wasted their time/lives/heart/dedication to liberty. All so traitorous socialists could piss it away for some fleeting false sense of security.

Tell me why we ran Joe McCarthy off again? Seems to me that rooting out/ruining/discrediting/deporting/locking up communist/socialist subversives is relevant still to this day.

It’s a shame. All those impoverished children, dirty and starving because mommy can’t go to work at Walmart in the sporting goods section. Job revoked due to a pen stroke. Makes you want to do something like talk down the ridiculous talk.

But you know crime statistics show that criminals prefer 38 specials over every other gun out there. A revolver that wouldn’t be subject to the ban proposed anyway.

As if this country wasn't already on the precipice of total disintegration, the socialists have decided to press on with their anti-American cultural warfare. They've graduated from information warfare/baseless slander/brain-dead populist movements (Me Too, Never Again, The Resistance, etc)

I weap for my nation.

Makes me want to build a secret room and hide my guns behind a dresser then write it down in a diary.

One thing that I've noted over and over: Too many people seem to think that America was somehow "tamed" back in the 20th century, and that we all seem to live in cities.

There are many millions of us that live out: in the middle of no where.

Rancher Bob and Farmer Joe are out there on their back lot, possibly miles from their own home, and if something happens (dangerous critter(s), or some person who means to do them harm), there is no calling the law...not right there and then. Many may not even have cell phone reception. Even if they did, response time could be an hour or more.

Some of these critters, you shoot them, and all it does is piss them off. While you're busy trying to chamber another round (thank you so much to those who decided we don't need something to rapid fire), they've reached you and that's all for you.

Seriously: America is huge. Sit down, take a look at a map...and I don't mean a damn geo-political map. A damn topographical one. Notice how America is not just made up of nothing but big cities.

I understand that John and Barbra CityDweller are most likely not going to have Mr. Bear come knocking on their apartment door on the 30th floor of their highrise, nor a pack of wolves suddenly spring around the corner of their local coffee shop, nor any bobcats and puma's climbing over their balcony.

However, those of us that do live way out here of what is the rest of America, do have to worry about things like that. We do have to worry that someone or a group of someones show up on our property to steal what they can (and hopefully that's all they're trying to do), and we know that it's going to be a hour or 2 before Barney the Deputy finally shows up after we call.

Personally I think if they're going to ban any guns, just do it in the cities. That's what all you city dwellers want, right? And we've seen how well it's worked for big cities like Chicago.

Seriously. It'd be great in my opinion if y'all would pass laws for just you in the cities and leave the rest of us alone.

I lost all my firearms in a boating accident earlier today

It was shortly after I made that post about it too...damn unlucky coincidence if you ask me


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.

Precisely. They need to mind their own business and stop trying to legislate their opinions on to us.

We clearly have rejected their socialist fantasies time and time again. Meanwhile, those of us here in the real world recognize we need only the best weapons available to ensure the SAFEST defense against criminals/terrorists/etc.

The problem is that the folks in cities, especially northern cities, have spent the last 150 years looking down on us "bumpkins" from out in the country. Thus, they believe they are needed to make decisions on our behalf.

I ran a call center for TWC and NYC while living in West Texas. The folks in Manhattan in particular were very, very rude and nasty to anyone with a southern accent. Also handled calls for T-Mobile, and their NYC customers were just as rude. Philly, DC, most Florida cities, most Cali cities, Boston...all incredibly rude to people with a southern accent.

You mean to say that there are 37 different places off the top of my head right here in Preble County, Ohio where there is no cell reception? Where bobcats and coyotes still are common? That my only unlimited internet at a whopping 8 mbps, is by radio waves and direct line of sight that forced me to cut down eight trees to establish that line of sight?

That can’t be possible, Ohio is seventh in order of electoral votes. There are over 11 million people here. We couldn’t have such rural areas. Everything has to have blacktop and concrete by now. Good heavens, Ohio has been a State for well over 200 years now. Surely it couldn’t possibly be so wild as anyone would ever have a need to provide their own protection here.

I own one myself, RDIAS picked up for ~20 grand

It was every bit as annoying as you described


And senseless. If I were a criminal ####head, I could've built one in my garage in about 10-15 minutes max. Even a shoestring or crankfire+drill can become a "machine gun" in this screwed up country.


Well, why didn't you just build one yourself then? Would have saved yourself $20,000... I mean damn, even in Australia, you could buy a fully automatic rifle on the black market for about $20,000 usd... if you really wanted one.

Anyway, I don't understand why you guys are so hot under the collar about this bill... You guys must realize that its been purposefully designed to fail right? I mean prohibiting all semi-auto firearms, including pistols? That would be more restrictive than the firearm restrictions in Australia... In other words, its not going to pass and they know it.

Its actually a win for people who oppose any further gun regulations, if you think about it... Since its confirmation that neither the democrats or republicans have any real interest in actually pursuing serious gun reforms... They just want to be able to say they tried, to avoid the current political pressure their under, 'to take action'.

To me it shows the enormous disconnect that half the nation has with the other half. Its like an animal with 2 heads pulling the body in different directions.

We will end up having some dark days ahead of us. I believe the US will end up as 5 nations when its all said and done. Probably in my lifetime.

You're right, I'm sure the Republicans will do the same thing saying "we shot down this evil legislation to ban guns by the nasty Democrats". It goes both ways.


Except it shouldn't even be a thing to begin with, it's just a dumb move all around.

this is all just theater so they can say the right doesnt care about kids when they shoot it down.


Well then the right better come up with some specific alternative solutions pronto - rather than just being the party of no.

Uhm yes, they were semi automatic.

Also

Beautiful I never saw one of these. Thank you for bringing that to the attention of a serious gun lover. That is so cool!!
Getting back to the gun ban. Is it not obvious that the FBI, Sheriff, and security guard all dropped the ball. I believe in my humble opinion the FBI purposely dropped the ball. Remember Rham Emanuel said never waste a good tragedy for political purposes. Most conceal carriers would have charged into that building and neutralized that idiot!!!

I'd say that the onus lies on the left, who is blaming a policy/process that predates school violence by over 100 years.

What changed? And why did the school shooter phenomenon exponentiate while Obama was in office?

Its not being a party of "No" to require some answers before solutions are offered. Unless you feel that stabbing in the dark is how we should run a nation?

House Democrats are welcome to take that bill, roll it into a tight cilynder, and shove it up their collective asses. This is beyond ridiculous. The United States must not devolve into a group of fearful children willing to give away Rights to maintain the illusion of security.


semi-automatics are NOT protected by the 2nd. the gun or "arms" can be determined by whatever the government wants it to be.....if they determine that "arms" can ONLY be a 6-shot pump shotgun, and a 6-shot revolver....that's it
