Students are right on gun control, and Republicans are dangerously wrong: Dunce Dianne Feinstein. Zero, zip, nada. This dunce wants to take your guns and your magazines. Note she conveniently leaves out that the Parkland shooter used 10 round magazines.

These weapons fire much faster than typical hunting rifles. They fire rounds that are also deadlier than those fired from a hunting rifle. A Parkland radiologist noted that an AR-15 round may leave an exit wound “the size of an orange.” These weapons are designed to kill people, not animals.

 Our current bill would ban 205 weapons by name, and any other weapons that accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic.

Importantly, the bill also bans high-capacity magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. The shooter at the  grade school in Newtown, Conn., for example, used 30-round magazines

DIanne eat another tide pod, sit down and STFU. Dianne is not even sure which end of the bullet goes forward.

All semi-automatics can only fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, including the civilian version AR-15. Most large game hunting rifles will be a larger caliber than the standard .223 AR-15. A .308 or .30-06 standard hunting rifle will make larger holes which are needed to bring down big game like a deer. The .223 was chosen by the military because soldiers could carry more of the smaller rounds. Smaller = less deadly.

Don’t have to explain it to me kiddo. I have a M-40. I have a .308. They are bolt action rifles, not semi-auto like an AR-15. But I do have an AR and if you think I can’t take down a deer or elk with it you don’t know shit about guns. It’s all about distance, 200 yards or 1000 yards. That determines which weapon to use when hunting.

I was countering Feinstein’s ridiculous lies. You can hunt deer with a .223 but I wouldn’t. If I see that trophy buck at 4-5 hundred yards, I want to be able to bring him down. I would never hunt elk with a .223 round. It was never my intention to tell you how to hunt.

I have never been a trophy hunter, I could care less about a head to hang on the wall. I was raised to know there is only two reasons to kill, for meat or self protection. I always went hunting to put meat on my families table, not for a set of horns to show off to others. Ain’t going to eat it, don’t need to kill it!

I know that sifi, but we did get a good discussion about weapons and ammo going didn’t we? And that is the point. When people get to talking they can all learn something or maybe settle a problem. Which is why I have always loved IHTM. I have learned a few things from the folks here, maybe I was able to help someone solve a problem even if it was with a song I posted and nothing else. Because this has always been a free, open site, where anyone could say any damn fool thing they wanted. Then let the ball roll boy, because it will!

“These weapons are designed to kill people.” That’s the kind of weapon I want, because when the government goes tyrannical, or when someone tries to harm me, I want to be able to respond with deadly force.

All guns are designed for one purpose, to kill something. Anyone who does not understand that should not have a weapon of any kind because they are to stupid to own a gun. Firearms are good for one thing only, to take a life. And the person holding that gun better understand that. If not, they should not be allowed to have a gun.
