    I suppose if someone doesn't like the gun laws in their state, they are free
    to move to another state with more suitable laws, as well. Heck, there's
    even whole countries with no gun laws, and minimal laws all-around for that matter.

    That's a shitty option, though. You shouldn't have to base where you live in America on where you can exercise a constitutional right. There are so many other criteria to worry about.

    You have a constitutional right to a well regulated militia. So, if you
    can own a gun, you are exercising your constitutional right. Just because
    it's well regulated, that doesn't mean you're not able to exercise it.

    I like to use NYS as an example. People claim we have the most draconian gun laws. Yet, I can buy 10 guns, with 1000 rounds of ammunition, all during my lunch hour. Yet, people still say NYS is banning guns. No, they're banning tools of war, just like we've banned hand grenades and ICBM from general ownership.

    Aren't those the people most afraid that the government is going to come take away their guns, so they feel they have to buy more guns so when the men with guns come to
    the door they can be like "I have guns!" and the men with guns, and armor, and tanks, and aircraft will be scared off?

    Tools of war? Hmmm it's fools like you, who believe that tripe, that will enable a elected officals to rule you like a dictator or king would. Our second amendment rights were provided to protect the people from people or a government that would oppress. These are tools of self-defence. Regardless if they are AR-15's, or hand guns. You're a fool if you don't believe that our world is one governed by the agressive use of force.

    Assault weapons have been banned since the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994. If you're referring to a semi-automatic rifle, you're getting into a gray area with a lot of legitimate owners of hunting rifles which bear no physical resemblance to the semi-automatic rifles making the news. These owners also vote.

    basically anything can be a tool of war. you can make explosives out of common items, you can set traps, you can have war like methods and really fuck shit up.

    Of course not. Which is why the military didn't select that weapon, and any police force that tried them out has since switched out.

    Damn, that weapon shouldn't even be sold, for pure market reasons:
    Inaccurate as all heck, and about the only good thing about it is due to the gas piston design, it requires less judicious cleaning than the AR platform.

    Moving is as little as $250, per person. Greyhound can get you from NYC to
    LA for $252 per person. In fact, you can often find free transportation via sites like Craigslist. Almost 1/4 the price of an AR15.

    also if you like where you are employed there's

    And, notice that people aren't allowed to just possess explosives, for the
    most part, install poonji stick traps in their yards, etc etc

    you dont need a dangerous LOOKING black rifle to do so.


    Of course not. But, specific weapons make warfighting much easier. Which is why the US military settled on the M16 and M4 as the weapon of choice: It's perfectly designed for war.

    i'm all for guns as long as people are checked out properly and they Mr>
    store the weapons properly.

    Same here. I actually have no problem with gun ownership, even of M2 machine guns. As long as the person is routinely checked out, and is subject to a militia commander. Basically, own any weapon you want, if you are in a
    militia that is well regulated. Yahoos running around using assault weapons
    as a phallic replacement is not what the second amendment is for.

    It's also not for whacko wanna be cops to run around and play sheriff in the wild-wild-west.

    Do you hunt? I'm curious to see how you make that determination. I
    don't hunt, personally, but it seems that an AR-15 or any other
    semi-automatic rifle that looks like an assault rifle would hunt as
    well as a semi-automatic rifle with a wooden stock as long as you're
    both shooting the same caliber.

    I'd personally look like an idiot, IMO, shooting game with a rifle
    styled after an assault rifle. But, to each his/her own...

    Do you hunt? I'm curious to see how you make that determination. I
    don't hunt, personally, but it seems that an AR-15 or any other semi-automatic rifle that looks like an assault rifle would hunt as
    well as a semi-automatic rifle with a wooden stock as long as you're
    both shooting the same caliber.

    Yes. I do on occasion. The 5.56 and .223 rounds are not powerful rounds,
    and were selected to bring a man down, but not kill them 9/10 times. Because it take 3 people to get a wounded soldier off the battlefield, and 0 to call
    a person as dead, and recover later. A deer would laugh your round off, as would most other game.

    Adding to this, the cleaning requirements for the AR/M16/M4 platform, you're asking to be spending more time cleaning your weapon, than hunting.

    I'd personally look like an idiot, IMO, shooting game with a rifle
    styled after an assault rifle. But, to each his/her own...

    You're not the only one who would look like an idiot doing so. Anyone taking an AR15 hunting looks like a gun nut weekend warrior wannabe.

    At one point I'd strongly considered continuing to rent my primary residence and buying a smaller house for retirement now in a
    semi-rural town with a hospital, sense of community, plantable weather
    and a culture where hunting was a significant part of the town makeup.

    Sounds like a plan. I always recommend people should live where they are comfortable, instead of places they hate.

    Yes. I do on occasion. The 5.56 and .223 rounds are not powerful rounds, and were selected to bring a man down, but not kill them 9/10 times.

    From what I understand they were also designed to be lighter than a standard battle rifle round. Lighter rounds = more rounds per soldier.

    Because it take 3 people to get a wounded soldier off the battlefield, and 0 to call a person as dead, and recover later. A deer would laugh your round off, as would most other game.

    That makes perfect sense, I wonder if any military ever come out and said that?

    Adding to this, the cleaning requirements for the AR/M16/M4 platform, you're asking to be spending more time cleaning your weapon, than hunting.

    At least the deer isn't charging *towards you* when your M16 jams. The issues the M16 had in Vietnam sounded horrible, and the reaction smelled of cover-up.

    Dunno about publicly, to media or something, but it's well taught in TRADOC
    (US Army Training Doctrine Command, basically, they make all instructional material).

    Very true about the deer lol... Yes, the M16 issues were bad, they've gotten better, a little. Mostly, though, people just were better trained in the
    care of the weapon. Until it's introduction, the battle rifle could be dirty as all heck, and still fire. Just like the AK platform, as the tolerances are not as close.

    I suppose if someone doesn't like the gun laws in their state, they are free to move to another state with more suitable laws, as well. Heck,

    I feel like there's certain states where you will want to carry your gun around, and certain states where there's just too much peace to carry a piece.

    If democrats, or any other threat to gun rights, takes away our rights to carry, or even to own, then we will have to focus harder on other ways of defending ourselves, which can include, but is not limited to, flame
    throwers, napalm, or other gruesome tools.

    Here in NY, a good friend of mine is a convicted felon, because he sold crack to an undercover cop back in like 1998. He was a teenager, but now, he's
    almost 40, a hard-working man, and still can't protect his family with
    anything other than knives, and people who are STILL acting like criminals
    are walking around outside his door with who knows what.. I don't blame the democrats for this issue, but you did say to name a state. I think it's a federal law, but states have their own provisions on which convicts can be trusted with guns & which can not.

    So, you consider it a problem that a crack dealer is prohibited from owning guns?

    Um, when he became a drug dealer, he knew (Or should have known) he was at
    risk of becoming a felon.

    So, no. His right to own a tool for killing was removed due to him being a drug dealer. And, no, he wasn't a teenager, as his record would have been sealed from review if he was. Unless you count 18 & 19 as a "teenager".

    That being said, where in NYS does one require a gun to protect themselves
    and their family? Why can't his wife just buy a gun? Was she a drug dealer too?

    I don't know that much, but I know CA really had limitations on what where and how related to guns. If you can't carry a gun, transport a gun, load a gun or have effective parts to support the tool (gun) whats the difference for right to own it.

    I see guns as a tool and its not the gun that is some much dangerous as the person with the gun, just like a person with a truck, or knife, or hammer, or whatever. Now comparing how effective it is at dealing with tyranical soverigns yes the type of tool really does matter.

    Besides the funny thing is the law doesn't stop criminals from getting guns, and using them illegally. That's what nobody really talks about on TV (media). They say they want to change laws for the safety of us all but how does that stop poeople that don't follow the law who would otherwise be the people breaking into my home or threatening my or my family safety.

    ahhhh I shouldn't get started.

    So, if you want to blame anyone, blame our Founding Fathers for that one.

    I can't blame the founding fathers, but times have changed. Amendments need mending sometimes.

    When the 2nd amendment became law, drug dealing was legal. Also, states have their own interpretations of the amendment, and also of what they consider to be "a crime."

    It should be "a crime" for laws not to get updated when changes are overdue.

    Convicted murderers can register guns in some states, while convicted drug offenders in other states can't. This is the part that bothers me about it
    the most.

    You might be glad that people who made mistakes when they were teenagers
    can't own guns now, but it would make more sense if violent offenders were
    the only ones with their gun rights stripped.

    I also disagree with the voting rights being taken away from convicts. Unless they were convicted of voter fraud.

    New York DOES have among the most draconian gun laws in the nation. They
    even have some proposed that would make Kalifornia look mild in comparison.
    For example, a law was put forth that would limit ammunition purchased to
    twice the ammo capacity of the firearm. Since the SAFE law limits weapons
    to a 7+1 ammo load, that would mean a maximum of 16 round of ammo permitted
    for purchase per weapon. New York City is so anal on gun laws, that a
    friend of mine was jacked by two cops with THEIR weapons drawn just because
    he was carrying a .22 rifle, IN A HARDSIDED, LOCKED CASE, from an indoor shooting range to his car!

    In New York, my 80's era Smith and Wesson Model 645 would be illegal
    because it has an eight round magazine capacity. In New York, my Taurus
    PT-145 would be illegal because of its 10 round magazine (and possibly
    because of the Picatinny rail). My Maverick 88 12 gauge would be illegal,
    I can load 8 rounds into the tube. My Ruger 10/22, with a 10 round
    magazine would be illegal. I couldn't legally own my Hi-Point carbine nor
    my AR style MODERN SPORTING RIFLE regardless of the magazine capacity of
    either one. New York's gun laws do NOTHING to prevent any type of crime committed with guns within the state. Outlawing modern defensive firearms
    only results in the law-abiding populace being made defenseless against a heavily armed criminal element, and guarantees that Albany can ride
    roughshod over the rights of the citizenry because unlike the citizenry of 1775, they haven't the strength of arms to resist the ruling class.

    Um, I live in NY. No such law has ever been proposed in the legislature, AFAIK. As far as the SAFE Act's limit, that was struck down by the NY courts.

    I can't speak too much as far as NYC goes. I don't live there. However,
    given the fact I know lots of gun owners in NYC, who go to the range often, I will hazard he was already in trouble for something else.

    Wrong, wrong, and wrong again. All of those would have been legal.

    As far as gun laws not preventing criminals from getting guns, the #'s of failed background checks per month disagrees.

    And, FWIW, in 1797, the US passed a law requiring all gun owners present
    their weapons for inspection monthly (Militia Acts of 1797).

    What I find funny about what people call "assault rifles" is that for the most part, they are no different than a hunting .22 rifle.

    I mean many of them chamber .22 and "look" like a tactical weapon but really don't hold any more rounds, or fire any faster, than a mossberg plinkster.

    I get the argument against fully auto larger round hi capacity magazines or clips.

    But I mean imagine the damage a person in a movie theater can do with a
    shotgun and only 5 shells. A person may survive a .22 round. Something out of
    a shotgun?
    I own firearms.
    I hate firearms.

    Its a tough thing to deal with... on the one hand, i wish nobody had them and they were never invented.

    On the other, I'm glad i have mine.

    I lived in CA for a little over 11 years. My County (Amador) was very pro-gun, but of course CA is such a cluster fsck, if you were in the wrong County and got popped
    for anything, you're screwed.

    Where in OH, we're VERY pro-gun here in the state. I've been an NRA Pistol Instructor for a few years now, and I'm very proud to go shooting with all my friends, be
    it pro and anti alike. Truth be told most anti become pro after a few hours of live shooting :)
