So Obama has been in office for 4 years and his record shows he not only has not tried to curtail gun owners rights but, even increased them. Romney banned assault weapons as governor.

So let me get this straight. Americans have the right to bear arms, EXCEPT for the list? So when did the right to bear arms get diced up and quantified into specifically what is okay and not okay?
the same reason an RPG or a bazooka is on the NOT OKAY list. c'mon....the ability to fire massive amounts of ammo, with the ability to kill multiple people all at once without reloading, is not infringing on your right to bear arms. if you think it is, then you must believe that the 2nd amendment gives you the right to kill alot of people at once. don't you think this brings into focus your motives as well as your state of mind?
do you want to be associated with the same people as:

3...gabby giffords shooter

Oh noies! He, the dark anti-god, will take away guns with telescopes, fast-reloading mechanisms and so on! How could he?!
Maybe because those are stupid things? Whatfor do you need a telescope on your self-defense-weapon? For something like "active" self-defense over a mile away?
No. Demanding to have the rights to wear army-style-weapons is nothing anybody should be proud of.

Where did this list come from? I guarantee it is no more than a conservatives fever dream.
And before you attack me, you need to know I am against all forms of gun control. I think this list is just extreme and used to scare people. What gun owner doesn't have something on that list?
