Police grade weapons are usually 9mm 38 special or 40 chosen as not to over penetrate and cause collateral incidence. bad guy guns are those which go thru houses and cars with impunity by the by in south florida you cant tell the good guys from the bad we have soooooo many bad cops the good ones are affraid
That article was so full of hyperbole and buzzwords, all designed to inflame more than inform.
What "assault rifle" wouldn't be tactical? I never heard of a strategic one....tactical assault rifle modified to use bullets for an AK-47, along with an easy-to-conceal pistol.
There's that mythical 12000 "gun murders" a year. Not supported by any study or valid statistics (FBI, CDC) How many is "many of the weapons"? 20 a year? 1000 a year?In fact, 34 people are murdered every day in gun violence, with many of the weapons traced back to private sales.
I can go into Wal-Mart and buy dangerous baseball bats, axes, tire irons, not to mention cheesecakes (oh the cholesterol bombs!)To find out what kind of dangerous weapons we could buy,...
Then there his whole train of thought of "buying guns online". No, he's finding a seller online, but buying face to face.
What a crock of smelly stuff.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
I like the count there are more killed with hammers and other non wepons
I did not know that.../Johnny Carson voice, off/
The nine is a notorious over penetrator... Bad guy guns are the same as any other... and so are, ahem, "Police Grade." But once you put those hollow points in any gun, watch out! Those are designed for "maximum internal damage"... That's why I use only hollow point bbs... as dangerous as any other projectile out there... Maximum damage, I'm tellin' ya... wow!
It could be worse!
For many if something is not regulated by the government it is a loophole.
Freedom comes to mind.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
I have no problem with you wanting that or even demanding that as a condition of sale when you buy or sell a weapon in a face to face transaction. Trouble comes when you attempt to force others to do the same thing.Originally Posted by swmft
I wish they would take the ccw as a pre clear for flying it is now faster to drive to orlando from miami than fly. How stupid! as for person to person transfers I want a ffl record if I buy because it proves I was not the possessor before the date of purchase so if the gun was ever used in a crime they dont come after me
I recently bought something and as a condition of sale made the seller provide me with all maintenance records on the object. I would not however force others to do the same thing.
And they even bought evil hollowpoint ammo.Did you know those are designed to kill and maim? I mean really, unlike those harmeless other rounds? I wanna puke.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
