Street gangs are already guerrilla fighters in all but name...
President Obama has called for stricter federal gun laws to combat recent shooting rampages, but a review of recent state laws by The Washington Times shows no discernible correlation between stricter rules and lower gun-crime rates in the states.
For example, New York, even before it approved the strictest gun-control measures in the country last week, was ranked fourth among the states in strength of gun laws by the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, but was also in the top 10 in firearm homicide rates in 2011, according to the FBI.
This old bag has been wailing away on this issue for decades. She makes me ill. Id like to take her out for a nice seafood dinner and NEVER call her again.

I guess the realization that including Glock and similar pistols would leave way too many women, defenseless...
The magazine restrictions will still apply though...I'm glad I have a G36!...

You'd probably be amazed at how quickly they'd pick up the necessary skills. Not saying they'd be Navy SEAL's, or anything like that... But dangerous? Oh, my yes. Urban guerrillas would need differing skill sets from those of people who relocate to the countrysides...
It would be a nightmare scenario for the military...and I'm fairly certain they know it, too. Dread plays a roll, too, I'm sure.

It almost seems like they don't want to ban guns used to defend on a daily basis from criminals, like shotguns or pistols. They want to ban guns that can be used to rise up and overthrow the government, which I feel is even more scary considering it is our constitutional right. I thought we were supposed to be in control?
