    Are handguns illegal for now? I thought the Supreme Court recently ruled that even hydrocephalic 12-year-olds with felony records were entitled to own automatic weapons.

    aI am not certain how I feel on gun control but I don't understand why Canada has a minimal amount of deaths by firearm and they have a large number of gun ownership!

    I wish :D

    You should read the Heller decision - a legal masterpiece.

    Chicago's ban still stands. Alan J. Gura, lead Heller attorney, filed suit against Chicago the day the decision was released.

    Chicago will probably be how we'll get Heller incorporated - but I hear the Bradys are pushing Daley pretty hard to drop the ban preemptively so as to avoid this.

    Should that happen, then we'll just have to get incorporation via the NRA's suit against SF over the ban on firearms in public housing.

    I will, I still don't see the need for Ak-47 ! But if we do ever get attacked the first thing I am going to do is go to my Republican friend's house!

    Luissa - the AK-47s available to you at the gun store are not the fully-automatic weapons you see in movies and on the news.

    They are semiautomatic replicas. That is one pull of the trigger will fire one bullet. They are not machine guns.

    Here is an semiautomatic AK-47 variant designed for civilian use (found the pic on Google):

    Here is a Ruger Mini-30:

    [​IMG]

    Both have almost identical actions. Both shoot the same caliber. The difference is that the AK variant has such features as a conspicuously protruding pistol grip, bayonet lug, and a flash hider. These "assault weapon" features are purely aesthetic and have no bearing on the rifle's function.

    I don't understand why one should be legal while the other shouldn't. Can you tell me what your rationale is?

    Sorry i don't follow guns that closely that is why i am not for or against banning guns for I know it wouldn't probably solve the problem. And that repulican friend of mine has a machine gun of some sort where the bullets feed into the side. Sorry I am from Washington I don't know much gun talk. I just don't see what you need that for or maybe the gun was illegal.
    My brother was actually shot in face, it was sort of gang violence not on my brother's end and yes there are gangs here because it is considered a safe zone plus Canada's close.My point is the gun was stolen and you will never get rid those types of crime by banning guns!

    Exactly. Pretty astute for someone who isn't up on the topic.

    Ninja,

    Obama is from Chicago, it's historically a very violent and rough city. I know you don't honestly believe that Obama has the ability to stop gun violence so the question is do you ever get tired of being so disingenuous?

    More laws do not equate to less crime.

    Guns do not kill people, gun queers kill people.
