  •  And, by the way, it's the "semi- or one-shot" (6+ / 0-)

    weapons that would be banned under any sort of "assault weapons ban." The full-auto weapons are already banned, (except for those rare few with the special collector's license who have undergone an extensive and expensive background check, or the police.)

    •  all should be banned (2+ / 4-)

      saying one shot, semi of fully automatic is safer than the other is bullshit. Sayin anything else makes you live in Fantasyland.

      If you NEED a gun to hunt then you are a shitty hunter.

      Mankind hunted without such weapons for over 200000 years.

      Saying you need it now makes you an asshole.

      Or better yet,

      A pussy.

    •  Let's do this for ALL guns (1+ / 0-)

      So extensive background checks are not only possible but are in special cases already being done.

      Perfect.  We should do the same background checking for ALL gun and ammo purchases.  Let every gun owner under the same extensive background checks.

      Don't tell me it is too expensive or time-consuming.  The lifetime care for a spinal cord gunshot injury is expensive (and paid for with your taxes)

      •  That is what is required for an ATF stamp to allow (4+ / 0-)

        purchase of a full-automatic-capable firearm (originally passed to outlaw tommyguns in the Thirties.) Given that it requires approval from the senior law enforcement official in your jurisdiction of residence, as well as the ATF, that requirement is highly unlikely to be considered Constitutional if applied to all firearms and ammunition. But knock your socks off if you believe you can get it approved...
