    well, i think a lot of people look at the current round of laws as more of a ban on the sale of X and Y than anything else. which is of course an early step into killing gun ownership: make it hard to get into guns, so less people care the next time you push legislation, etc, etc.

    Why do you need such powerful weapons? Why does any man need more than one gun?

    That's right, they don't.

    And then American people have the nerve to wonder why so many gun massacres and shootings happen in their country.

    You don't need televisions, microwaves, dirt bikes, maple syrup, and Justin Beiber either but you don't see me or anyone else making laws banning them!! SMH

    I own guns because its my 2nd amendment right to do so. I hope I have over 50 guns when I die just because I have that freedom too.

    And don't get me started in that "massacre" 🤬 . That 🤬 is so rare in America you have a better chance of getting hit by lightning in the 🤬 while 🤬 Beyonce on top of a Rolls Royce. 🤬 outta here. Guns protect more people every day than they 🤬 .

    I appreciate guns but I don't own any now. Got my Bear compound bow, razorheads, and blades galore. Thing is unless you are a handloader you have a limited supply of bullets in a pinch, and yes I can fletch and make bowstrings. Realy would like to get some cold steel spears and one of these.

    start by telling me what you mean by "powerful weapons." because this sounds like you don't actually know very much about the guns you're enraged about.

    what do i need with more than one gun? different guns have different uses?

    i don't wonder: it's because of poor mental health care.
    WeeZee wrote: »
    Did I mention 'banning' guns? No.
    Can you read? Apparently not.
    when you start by complaining about "powerful weapons" and how everyone needs one gun at most? yeah, you're talking about banning guns.

    I can understand having one basic gun at your home for 'protection' but there should be licensing of both the gun and the gun owner. But I don't understand how owning, for example, 50 military style guns can be justified.
    there are more uses for a gun than "one basic gun at your home for protection." and what's a "basic gun" versus a "powerful gun?"
    ...and i am not sure you're exactly familiar with US gun laws, but that's admittedly a little complicated.
    ...and what's a "military-style" gun?

    Your country has suffered between 1-5 gun massacres a year since 1999, how is that a rare occurrence?
    well, your numbers are wrong, but if they were RIGHT.... 5 events in 14 years in a country with 300 million firearms? yeah, that would be the very definition of "rare."

    You people would rather think you're 'free' than have any regard for human life.
    ...and here we have a false choice. i can have the utmost regard for human life AND uphold the constitutional principle of firearm ownership. it starts, for example, with me not running around shooting people with my guns.

    You cannot win gun arguments with Cansdians. My girlfriend is a gun grabbing Canadian. I love her but when it comes to guns with her I feel like Im talking to a lamp...

    some Canadians really do love guns (and less so their gun laws). really, though, it's not just Canadians: a lot of people argue based more on what they believe laws/guns to be rather than what's the actual case.

    NY Gov. Cuomo May See A Pro-Gun Challenger In 2014

    CATHERINE THOMPSON 1:46 PM EDT, TUESDAY JUNE 18, 2013
    New York state Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R) floated a potential 2014 gubernatorial run on Monday against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), whom he accused of being a "schoolyard bully" on gun control laws.

    McLaughlin told the Albany Times-Union that New York's 4 million gun owners, who live mostly upstate, are his support base. He previously criticized Cuomo's championing of the SAFE Act that put constraints on assault weapons, saying "🤬 would be proud" of the law's passage.

    "Could it be viewed as a David vs. Goliath? Yes — but David won," McLaughlin told the newspaper. "I'm not a wallflower."

    McLaughlin told the Times-Union that would further capitalize on his upstate appeal by focusing on economic revitalization of the region. He criticized Cuomo's economic proposals that benefit the governor's "cronies," saying "a two-day canoe trip" doesn't cut it with constituents.

    McLaughlin's exploration of a challenge to Cuomo was first reported Monday by the New York Post.

    sadly, i am at the point where i think you have to either hope high courts kick this 🤬 or work on educating the masses, because neither NY or MD or any of these states are getting a quick resolution from our political classes

    They just introduced a new bill in July to track all ammo and make it illegal for you not to own traceable ammo. Traceable as in your name in a database

    also, noted in our Constitution as a right the government cannot infringe on (hah, right, i know)
    also, inanimate objects NOT responsible for the problems people complain about while they target guns and do nothing to address actual issues

    i have known a couple people who actively bought little Tauruses and they're generally satisfied... but you know. occasionally i get called a bit of a snob but i just can't see myself buying any Taurus if there's anything else viable in the same category.

    a friend of mine was very into their 8-shot .357 Magnum (Model 608, IIRC), but ended up going with a non-Taurus because he couldn't get one soon enough around these parts.
