STILL haven't answered a simple , common sense and logical question tex !!

 

Why does any Civilian need a 30-50 Round Assault Rifle , as powerful as the Military & Law Enforcement has , that can be folded up into a back pack ?

Like the one used to slaughter our Little Angels at Sandy Hook Elementary School

Where have I spoken against the 2nd amendment or against responsible gun ownership?

I have been speaking about the protection of children.

Besides we don’t use children to punish responsible gun owners. We use laws to punish irresponsible gun owners. 

 

 


Not punishing responsible gun owners for the actions of one or two nuts?  Then why is there advocacy here for blocking the ownership by those millions of responsible owners who keep their firearms secured and only use them for lawful purposes?

 

What is the liberals here doing if not using children to advocate restricting responsible owners from buying firearms?  You are saying one thing and then turning around and saying the opposite.  How many responsible gun owners has gone out to shoot up a place?  How many of their guns has gone out by themselves to do so?

 

You think that I haven't seen what firearms can do to children?  I am well aware and even after after all those decades remember seeing the children victims in Vietnam.

Now you are getting ridiculous.  No, they use flame throwers; saves time with dressing them and cooking.

Many want us to be concerned about their rights. But shouldn’t we be concerned about children? Don’t they have rights also...like not being shot in school!

They are our future.

As much right as anyone having the right not to be shot.  So you think the Second Amendment should be ignored?  And responsible gun owners penalized?  Of course tearing at the heartstrings for the agenda.  Consider the Children!!!   Of course when all else fails.  Punish several million responsible gun owners all because of the actions of a few nut cases.

 

By the way you are putting your party's liberalism over country.

Because those WMD are being purchased at Gun Shows in States like Texas without any background checks or registration in trunk loads full and transported to responsible States like NY.

 

We don't have a WALL around New York State !!

 

BTW Deer Season is big in New York State too , but a 5 shot ,12 Gauge is allowed. Our hunters dont need a 50 Round Assault Rifle to hunt deer. Real Hunters don't need 30 to 50 shots to take a deer down. Does Texas allow Grenade Launchers too ?

What don't you get about High Capacity Magazines ? 10 Rounds in the Great State of New York. If you can't defend yourself with 10 Rounds , maybe you shouldn't be carrying any Firearm and sorry for the target shooters , who have to live with the overbearing inconvenience of reloading after just 10 shots.

Remember our Little Angels at Sandy Hook !!


Of course, the old line "Think about the Children!!!"

What are you concerned about then since your state has it right?  Are you going to punish deer hunters here in Texas by banning the firearms you are uncomfortable with?  Come Thanksgiving and deer hunting season, an official religious holiday here, there would be a state full of unhappy people.  And how many sportsmen are illegally using magazines of over 30 rounds?

 

This might clear up a lot of misconceptions about the AR-15:
