No. It looks like it could kill a person, so harmless is not the word I would use to describe it.


P.S. you didn't answer the questions.

i know you didn't say it was the answer, but you must understand that drugs are the easiest and only quantifiable solution...i understand it's underfunded... but there are HUGE amounts of money being made on mental illness, to the point that many argue that people are over-prescribed... the fact that the homeless arent being helped is simply an indictment of our health-care structure. Any drug-oriented solution will necessitate mandatory medication... are we willing to have the state force medications on people? even the homeless? We do it in NYC... and it has helped... but is it right?

You need to go back and reread what I posted, I have only talked about mental illness on a global scale, it isnt just this country, every healthcare system on the planet has failed these people

you are wrong good sir there is way more money to be made in weight loss, boners, cancer treatment, hair loss and removal, diabeetus, vision correction etc....the proof is in the pudding, it is underfunded to the tune of 100:1(in some countries greater, but a lot don't disclose) for a reason, when a large portion of your target market is dead broke what makes you think there is money to be made?

these are excellent questions and we struggle to answer them because we know so little

What do you think that the major difference is, and how do you feel about the rules governing the differences?

That is where us "gun nuts" get nervous.

As for the gun violence, there is not a good answer, but IMO the answer is not take away the guns that contribute to hardly any of the violence.

Come up with a better plan.


Well I can't see the picture that well. Is that a Winchester Model 78? If so that has a bolt action I think. Also there is no clip in the picture. The standard magazine clip for those rifles is generally 10. The current idea is to ban clips of over 10 rounds so I don't think that would be in any trouble as long as you don't purchase a clip of over 10 rounds for it. I also don't think it can run off three shot bursts.

Also generally speaking, aren't rifles that use a Remington .308 cartridge usually considered to be more of a sniper rifle than an assault rifle?

Right now there isn't a better plan that is doable and has wide support. I think must of us would like to see a ban or severe regulatory tightening on certain type of handguns as well. But that isn't going to happen because handguns are also the most popular gun for self defense.

The plan that has been put in place is not a magic bullet (no pun intended), but it is common sense things that put us in a better direction even if it is far away from being significant enough.

Can the backpack get cleanly through, say, a door going up into a bell tower?


That is the most retarded thing I have heard lately.

Posted Image Without a doubt, it is highly disappointing that any legislator would not have thoroughly read this bill before sponsoring it. Having said that, at least he owned up to his mistake, plus we all know there was never any chance of the bill passing in its original form. Meanwhile Indiana state level Republicans intend to require medically unnecessary double trans-vaginal probes of women seeking first trimester abortions. Here we have, tea party GOP outrage of a bill with no chance of passing, but silence on a true invasion of personal privacy, albeit, we are only talking about women's rights here, I know that is hardly worth mentioning in the big scheme of things. Women should just be happy to still have their voting rights after screwing up the last Presidential Election for Romney, amirite? Yet the GOP/TP seems to be eager to mandate double trans-vaginal probes for no medically justifiable reason, but are deathly afraid of anyone looking at their rifles! Wonder what Sigmund Freud would have to say about that? http://www.rawstory....nal-probe-bill/

No bolt action. Semi Auto rifle, just like the AR-15's that are available to the public.

No AR's nor any other rifle available to the public has the capability of having "three round bursts" as you put it.

A .308 is a very popular hunting rifle cartridge, and yes it was used as a main bore size for most snipers for many many years.

Bolded is where I have you ask you what the fug you are talking about....AR-15's are not assault rifles, nor is there a general ammo size for sniper/assault rifles.

Again I will ask you, what do you think is the big difference in these weapons, and where will you draw the line on what is legal and not legal to own?

Look. I am not a gun aficionado, I admit that. I have a couple guns that are family heirlooms, and I know how to use them. I don't read Gun & Ammo magazine. This is not a picture of me (as far as you know):

But despite that, as far as I can tell, the only reason an AR-15 is not technically an "assault rifle" is because it doesn't have selective fire. It shares all of the other characteristics of an assault rifle.

But I understand your point, and the term "assault rifle" maybe not the best phrase for these type of weapons. Some people refers to them as "military style weaponry" or use the US legal definition of "assault weapons" which has a different meaning than "assault rifle". But at this point you are arguing semantics when you know what people mean when they say "assault rifle".

Also I believe fully automatic rifles are currently legal, and some automatic rifles have what I think is referred to as "burst fire" which allow maximum bursts of rounds which is usually set at 3.

I am not the one drawing lines on this. If it were up to me, I would ban any semi-automatic rifle. They may be preferable to a bolt action, lever, etc. for hunting, but they are also not necessary for hunting. If that includes your rifle, than I am sorry.

The point of all of this, is just to point out that this is not about saving lives, it's about grabbing guns from everyone. The "left" have been eyeing this for a long time, many would love for us to not have any guns at all, but don't know where to start.

The problem with the "assault weapons" is that it's just the start, next is semi auto, then pumps, then bolt actions, then single shots. It will not stop.

And no, for almost the entire population automatic rifles are illegal.

Also, the only real difference in these two weapons is the looks. I guess folks think that pistol grips and black finishes are extremely dangerous, and turn regular guns into weapons of mass destruction.
