Oh shut up.

This goes for the pro-gun side too. Guns are legal, accidents happen. Guns are banned, accidents still happen, and not just with guns too. The world is spinning, people die, people do stupid things, people have their moments of glory or stupidity, etc, etc.

I recognize that. I was just pointing out how easy it is to find cases online that use pathos to support a person's point. Through satirizing the previous thread, I was also pointing out the hypocrisy in some of the members reactions. I personally, believe that assault weapons should be banned,background checks should be comprehensive, and the "gun show loophole" should be closed. I do believe guns are a right, but I believe that it is a limited right.

People are trying to get AR-15s banned in New York State. If you had heard Cuomo's SOTS speech, you'd be as worried as I am.

#24 Posted by WiiCubeM1 (4727 posts) -

I'll put it simply.

The shooting was a tragedy. There is no doubting that.

Were guns involved? Yes.

Are they an issue that needs to be dealt with? Of course.

Will trying to one-up each other on the issue by exploiting past and present occurences solve anything? No. It only causes each side to further cement their flawed and incomplete views on a subject instead of allowing them to come to a concensus.

But you don't have a right to own any specific weapon. Just the right to bear arms. They've already made it illegal to have various other weapons so there is precedent.

As I've explained before, I have the right to bear arms with some reasonable exceptions. Banning the AR-15 platform isn't reasonable. Thus it's an attack on my 2nd amendment rights.

Banning fully automatic AR-15s is reasonable. As such no fully automatic rifles can be made in the US, or imported(unless the BATF approves it). Banning collapsable buttstocks isn't reasonable. Banning pistol grips isn't reasonable. Banning foregrips isn't reasonable. Banning 30 round magazines is straddling the line, though as I've shown before, someone can shoot 10 round magazines and reload almost as quickly as it would take someone to go through a 30 round magazine.

I thought that was what a pistol was for. Weird. Are you telling me that you can shoot with both!?

That makes them interchangeable (in your logic). Thus, whenever you want to complain about not having the right to own an assault weapon, go and buy a basic pistol. They both shoot. Thererfore they are the same (in your twisted logic).

I live in PA. Semi-automatics are illegal for anything other than target shooting. They have no practical use unless there is some kind of apocalypse and I need a rapid-fire weapon to fight the hordes that are coming for my food/brains. To me, they are just wastes of money (especially since the ammo is a dollar a shell, at least in my area).

I haven't heard any kind of legislation for repeating rifles, shotguns, or small arms yet, and those are the only weapons that really serve any kind of purpose for a civilian, and by that, I mean hunting. I eat a lot of game.

The thing is your entire argument is about what is reasonable. If the law makers decide it's a reasonable ban then...what? What is deemed reasonable is subjective and if they want to ban it and find it reasonable then what argument are you going to use. I don't give a sh*t what happens personally but your argument is weak here. Also if they think a 30 round magazine is reasonable to ban then making a case you can fire without one just as fast isn't helping your side, it's helping theirs.

WiiCubeM1

You're using the term rapid-fire incorrectly. Clearly you don't understand what the term "practical" stands for because target shooting is indeed a practical use. If you're spending a dollar a round on .223 ammunition let me suggest you switch to WPA Polyformance. They're dirt cheap and they go through AR-15s very well, with almost no loss in accuracy. They're dirty, though.

Again, just because it has no purpose for you doesn't mean there is no purpose for me.

It's not subjective just because you say it is.

We've already determined that society has to have reasonable gun control measures. Those are in place and it shows in most places. Banning AR-15s isn't reasonable. Not when most gun crime is committed with handguns.

I'm not arguing diction here. When I say rapid-fire, I'm not referring to a fully-automatic weapon, and I am in no way comparing an AR-15 to one. I'm just referring to the nature of a semi-automatic weapon. You can fire it as fast as you can pull the trigger.

Practical weapons, in my eyes, are weapons that grant me something in return for the money and care I put into them. I shot a deer back in November with my .308 and I'm still working my way to the backstrap. An AR-15 is an entertainment piece where I live. Every trip to the shooting range is $50 down the drain when my cousin brings his AR.

I can understand your reasoning, though. I've only been hunting in NY once, but I remember that state regulations allow for a semi-automatic weapon as long as the ammo capacity doesn't exceed 6 rounds. You have to understand my reasoning, though. Many of us that already live with regulations on weapons like the AR never really understand the fuss people throw because we've lived so long without using them, it's almost meaningless to us. As conservative as my family is, we all agree that semi-automatics never really serve a purpose that can't be filled by a normal rifle. The AR being practical to me is as alien as my views are to you.

Oh yeah, and I'll tell my cousin about that Polyformace ammo. Might save him a couple bucks.

All you're doing is pointing out that an AR-15 is just as deadly without a feature that is supposed to increase it's lethality. If you're trying to argue that the AR-15 is being banned unreasonably you are doing an incredibly good job helping the stance you oppose.

When it comes to the rights the country was founded on then yes. If he feels the country is truly unsafe with citizens having guns then I would think his main priority would be evacuating himself and his family.

I have to pay $60 to shoot either a handgun or rifle. And there aren't many places that have indoor rifle ranges. I use my AR-15 at least twice a month. Entertainment is a practical use, and I derive great entertainment from shooting better than all of my buddies. So now you understand my fears on the matter. If I lose my AR-15, I lose about 2k that I've put into it. Gov. Cuomo isn't even suggesting a buyback, he's suggesting a forced confiscation of my AR-15.

Throwing practicality out the window, you have to respect the position I'm in. I've never committed a crime with my firearms. I've never so much as joked with one of them. The mere suggestion of taking it away from me is an outrage. Not only that, but these chuckleheads in my state are suggesting a separate, state-run NICS for AMMUNITION PURHCASES! And outlawing ammunition from being bought online.

I'm sick and tired of being punished for doing absolutely nothing wrong. And those who are apathetic to this issue are no better than the people who are doing this.

Okay, then explain to me why it's reasonable to ban AR-15s and their aesthetic components.

A weapon is going to be deadly regardless of what kind of magazine is inside of it. That's why it's pointless to worry about the magazine size.
