In my opinion civilians have absolutely NO need to own fully automatic, military style assault rifles with high capacity magazines. Handguns more than suffice for personal protection.

The leftest are really serious about coming for firearms this time and here is just another example. Crazy Bernie took to twitter today to call for bans here in the US.
What I do not understand is why they concentrate so hard on rifles when handguns are utilized to commit the vast majority of both murders and crime in general.
Anyone have a good answer for that?

An ar-15 is a glorified hunting rifle and not even a really good one for that.
I can tell you have never hunted feral pigs or you would not have said that.... The AR-15 is the weapon of choice for everyone I have ever known who had to get rid of the pigs destroying the farms and crops.. Many videos of a feral pig hunt at youtube
On another subject no fear if they ban first the ARs then of course the hand guns will be next so leave it to an enterprising German to come up with "The Tactical Repeating Crossbow !" youtu.be...
As cool as it is I would have hated to try and kill pigs with such a weapon.. Plus a bow and arrow or a cross bow is to slow to kill... This is a Coyote kill and if you look they are feasting on two cattle. Warning for all the big city apartment dwellers who think protecting your life, property, and livestock is wrong...don't watch the video.. youtu.be...
I used a night scope equipped AR-15 as all the hunting was done at night. Anything out to 125 yards was DOA.. Two 30 round mags and something to eat and drink was all I usually needed but I did carry two extra mags and a 1911 45 cal. just in case. The pig problem went away when a female Mountain lion moved up from Mexico. Within the first month of us finding her tracks the pigs left the area probably with her tagging along for she never killed any of the live stock in our area.. Mother nature has a way of answering our prayers sometimes, No ?

The public shouldn't have assault weapons. That's pretty much all there is to it. What the hell are they (gun mfrs.)thinking selling them to the public in the first place? You can't justify that nonsense. Not with any amount of asinine mental gymnastics.
The amendment is outdated and does NOT apply to the kind of weapons around today.
The amendment these idiots continually try to beat everyone over the head with
was referring to muskets not bloody AR 15's.
Someone needs to gently explain this to all these gun happy Muppets
I sure as hell don't need some massive crazy rapid firing machine gun like the one Ripley has in Aliens to feel safe or to outsmart some animal with a brain the size of a watch battery.
These things are not toys and we should be taking them away from the infantile and sometimes mentally unstable or retarded adults that rabidly defend the sale of them with their deranged interpretation of the 2nd amendment twitching and flailing like a dying haddock behind them.
Enough is enough. Enough was bloody enough 6 years ago.
6 days it took NZ to act. 6 days.

Also worth mentioning is the phrase "well regulated"
In the terminology of the times that would equate to "well equiped", so by that, the founders would mean for every household to have several select fire m4's in our cabinets.
You can bet our founders would have ar15's at the very least in thiers.
