Maybe the only person who can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, but I’m sick of this NRA shit about assault weapons.
- If ONE bad guy with an assault weapon walked into a church with THIRTY good guys who ALL had assault weapons, the good guys would be loading their assault…
I think you are lacking pretty basic knowledge of firearms. ALL rifles and ALL handguns fit the libtard definition of ‘assault weapon’.
I can imagine that you are somehow conflating an automatic weapon, like you have seen in the movies your entire life, with a firearm designated by liberals to be an assault weapon.
A fully automatic weapon is defined as a machine gun, a submachine gun, an ‘assault rifle’, or a machine pistol. These automatically fire the weapon as long as you hold the trigger down until the magazine or belt is empty, or until a set number of rounds have been fired.
Very few people have those, the ones who do wouldn’t dare use them in a crime because they cost tens of thousands of dollars due to legal restrictions on civilian purchase of any made after 1986 and they are generally considered to be investment items these days.
The ‘assault’ weapons that idiot gun grabbers like Feinstein and Bloomberg are so afraid of are simply semi-automatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles have been the most popular rifle sold in the US for civilian use for fifty years. The phrase semi-automatic means that you pull the trigger and one bullet is fired. The mechanism of the firearm ejects the spent round and loads another from a magazine or clip (depending on the design of the firearm) (you can run an M1 Garand with the clip in the magazine, hence the ‘or clip’) Then you pull the trigger again and one more bullet is fired.
Now that you have some knowledge of how firearms work and how you have been misled by the libtards, you can imagine how silly your comments are in reality.
In reality, if a man walked into a church where there were thirty men armed with semi-automatic rifles, he would be shot very quickly. He might shoot one or two, but contrast that with what has happened time and again when the liberal idiocy of gun free zone has kept *any* good guy from having a firearm in a building. Dozens are killed and no one can do anything until the police arrive tens of minutes later.
Here are some more facts for you.
1. There are people that just want to hurt other people. Some are mentally ill, some are sadists, some are simply massive toxic narcissists who feel they were insulted or in some other way not treated as their ego demands.
2. There are 350 million citizens in the US.
3. There are 130 million gun owners in the US.
4 There are about 400 million firearms legally and safely owned and used by law abiding citizens in the US EVERY DAY.
5. In this day and age of advanced medicine, there are more people killed annually in the US by internal parasites like tapeworms than are killed by all firearms combined.
6. More people die from being beaten by hands and feet every year than are killed by rifles OR shotguns (civilians).
7. According to a report cited by Mother Jones News, there are 65,000 documented instances of people using firearms to defend themselves every year. Many of those are with semi-automatic firearms like the ones you are attempting to vilify.
8. There were 1.1 million documented violent crimes committed in 2012. 800,000 of those did not involve firearms in any way. And yet women and men were raped, beaten, savagely mutilated, robbed, and had their families and their personal lives shattered by criminals. Why would you think it is a good idea to make these people have to pay fees and make deals with the government in order to have the equipment to defend themselves from these crimes?
Not sure which “libtards” you’re talking about, but the democratic party platform maintains that pistols, rifles and shotguns should be legal …
