People always think, what's the worse that can happen if they take away a few rights. Ask the Chinese

It blows my fucking mind that people can look at the government literally trying to take away guns, and people STILL use the same arguments: why do you need them? I don't know. Did you know cops in the United States killed over 900 people in 2015 alone? That sounds like plenty of reason to have one at home.

How many citizens used their firearms to defend against these murderous cops ? .. How many just stood to the side and took a video on their phone ? ..

just a quick question and I am not American. Do you diffrentiate between hunting weapons and handguns whne taking about guns? I have been curious about this as in myn country shootings are almost unheard of unless it is a shotgun.

You'll have a better chance to die sleeping in your bed or walking up the stairs than by a cop.

I wonder... if they were more aware of what was happening, if they would have been more willing to fight back as a society against those that were oppressing them.

I sure fucking hope so, because if not, then they deserve what they got.

(actually no one deserves that, i lie)

That is a thought I have never had in my life. Being surrounded by those that do think that way though has been a major issue in my life. My entire life growing up, I have watched one right after another being taken away. From the simple to the extreme, and it seems there is no end in sight... no end that is until we are all undeniably once again a society of slaves, serving the interests of those who care not for our own.

Robots, drones, and AI robots and AI drones is what I fear will be the jailers we deal with in those dark times.

Asians are natural conservatives, it's a shame they have been courted by the left's slanderous cackles of "racism" towards conservatives.

Agreed.

I feel like I'm living in the 1850s.

How many people back then actually thought a war would pop off?

[–] Super_Cooper 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Quite a few from what I gather. The southerners generally wanted to be free of the northern government. Probably because they were more "lefty" and threatened the southern way of life with sweeping regulations that eliminated state's rights. A lot of voaters (and other conservatives) are like the southerners - keeping their guns clean and well oiled, waiting for the right opportunity.

I would argue the US is already in a civil war. The Police have been killing 1k people a year or more. It's just the American people doesn't realize this.

Be careful. There are some elements of the US gov't that are against the people, and some that are for the people. Do not make your friends your enemies.

Read the whole thing. It's also about magazine limits and other items, not just background checks. He "glossed" over that.

ARs fall under the "assault weapon" ban from long ago, even if they are the semi-automatic version. The definition of "assault weapon" that congress uses is "if it looks scary, it's an assault weapon". That definition, and the assault weapon ban, does not distinguish between full automatic fire and semi-automatic fire.

Wikipedia talks about various assault weapon ban bills. Ah, this explains it:

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban enacted in 1994 expired in 2004. Attempts to renew this ban have failed, as have attempts to pass a new ban, such as the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 (AWB 2013).

So the "assault" weapons ban is currently expired.

It is legal for an American to get a fully automatic firing weapon only with a special license, and they are uncommon. But it does happen.

There is a newly proposed assault weapon ban for 2015.

I was hoping that link was Henson Ong. I watched his testimony live when they were ramming their unconstitutional gun bans down our throats. He is so legit.

If you give them an inch, they take a mile. We shouldn't have even let them restrict automatic weapons.

I hope all of you are getting in touch with your local militia. If shit hits the fan you need to find safety in numbers by being part of the resistance otherwise you're just a sitting duck.

Why does he not go to to his hometown of Chicago and take the illegal guns from his "son's"? They do have the highest gun crime in the USA.
