    I've only read up to page 35 of this thread, so maybe something has been said along these lines already...

    What 10Gagenut said above is exactly the example I have used before to people....do we "need" cars that can go faster than 70MPH ? Do we "need" lifted trucks with 36" tires ? Do we "need" a semi-auto shotgun to hunt ducks ? Do we "need" extended tubes to hold 12 rounds to hunt Spring snow geese ?

    To BuckMaster: Sure we can look like "whackos" when we dont want to budge, but where do we draw the line ? When people like Nancy Pelosi state that certain firearms should be banned due to their intimidating look, that we dont "need" them to hunt with and have no other facts or sound reasons to back these claims (the only reason to ban these is because they "look" evil), this is what worries me and makes me a little more "far right" than what I normally would be.
    I dont think I'd mind banning bump-stocks, but part of me says "give em an inch and they'll take a mile".
    Giving them a "feel good" reason, in my opinion, will only lead to more " feel goods " tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, and the......Its ALWAYS "just one more law would've prevented this".

    Nancy and the l left wing nut jobs can say all they want. They seem to forget that a lot of their base is white middle class Americans who own guns, hunt and believe in the 2nd amendment. It would be political suicide for them to try and outright ban guns.

    It’s in our best interest for these kind of shootings to not happen. Unfortunately, like everything else in this country the actions of a few ruin it for a lot of people.

    TCC is correct, just by dong the math, he had a .308 caliber rifle, that would have been the better choice and by don the math for nine minutes he fired shooting every four seconds you could have a dead body count of 135 victims.

    This was a, (I will show you event) by a possible true believer in my belief, now we will have gun control.

    Freedom does require Responsibility, why do you want to reward irresponsibility.

    So what’s your solution? Do you believe if we had zero gun laws we would have less or more killings?

    It’s not hating freedom. We don’t have the freedom to own whatever we want and do whatever we want. That’s a nice thought though. This country isn’t just a big free for all to do whatever you want whenever you want.
