There could potentially be a never ending list of banned items. Making something illegal has never been successful at stopping criminal activity. The best approach, I believe previously stated is to make it harder for the criminal element to obtain by making people who sale them responsible for who they sell them too. Background checks, etc. But most importantly make the punishments for offenses concerning firearms that no one will want to do them. Right now you get more time for drugs than weapons charges.

    Military issued M4's and M16's have a selectable three round burst or semi-auto (one round per trigger squeeze).

    The full auto versions have been phased out for the "regular" military. Too much wasted ammunition. Your standard infantryman will not have an automatic weapon issued to them.

    He did not find another tool. He manufactured his own. There is a difference. Nothing precluded him, presumably, from driving to Walmart and making a purchase for the same 'tool'.

    Chicken Little statement without foundation.

    Tell it to Miami-Dade's 66% reduction in assault weapon crime during the previous ban.

    The best approach, I believe previously stated is to make it harder for the criminal element to obtain by making people who sale them responsible for who they sell them too. Background checks, etc. But most importantly make the punishments for offenses concerning firearms that no one will want to do them.
    In that case, the NRA stands in your way of producing a more civilized result as they have hypocritically reversed their prior support for universal background checks which include gun show purchases/private sales. The NRA also rewards convicted criminals by restoring their 'right' to obtain firearms. Classy!

    Right now you get more time for drugs than weapons charges.
    Untrue.

    I'm terribly sorry I didn't word that right. Let's say people will find a way since we are so technical. Dade county only mentioned assault weapon crime went down. What about overall crime? Did these people use a different type firearm? Conveniently left out statistics. Also, percentages can be misleading. Any hard numbers? 2 out of 3 is roughly 66%. Ar15 violence in Dade compared to other firearms is what? Lots of missing info here.

    Why allege something you can't possibly support (because it's fabricated)? Here's the record:

    One way or another, final dispensation reaches the criminals. The judicial system is working. Enough of the bumper-sticker "we're not enforcing the laws on the books" monkey-dust already.

    As a seeker of unvarnished truth, you tell me. On what basis of substance do you question why Miami-Dade, particularly, would substantiate success in reducing violent crime if it were not truthful?

    The only thing missing is a meaningful, honest discussion.

    And show me anywhere in Obama's proposed gun ban he's done anything to impose stricter punishment for the criminals instead of the gun.

    Actually, I was placing your thoughts in very appropriate context. Interesting how that worked out, isn't it? You're welcome.

    Why are you so stuck on Miami-Dade, is that the only area that released the statistics that you wanted?
    You are such a seeker of the unvarnished truth let's see nationwide stats for the same time period as the 66% drop that you are obviously so impressed with.

    Columbine happened during the last AWB.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    Speaking of context ..... You might like to re-read the post, in full, that you're responding to before asking something inane again. The judicial system works. Or, are you referring to the NRA restoring convicted felons' 'rights' to obtain firearms?

    It's been your claim from the beginning that no reduction in crime/loss of life occurred during the previous assault weapons ban. Correct? Mysteriously, in all these pages of sputum, you've not supplied a single shred of unbiased statistical evidence to support your statement. Care to back it up now?

    You're not addressing something which was said. You're just trying to deflect the discussion where you would prefer. Here is what was said, in context:

    Then nearly everything you've posted in this thread is chicken little. I stand by the statement and that your half truth of the 66% in Dade is just as chicken little. You found the one article that boasted of such things and it didn't even include complete statistics. The problem with statistics is for the most part negative ones are the only ones reported.

    With number 1 I may not be able to stop them, but I can certainly take more of them with me if I have an ar-15/ar-30. Than if I was restricted to a shotgun.
