Winds of revolution?

Has anyone else noticed that not only the rhetoric but general conversation has changed for the worse since the Newtown shooting? There have always been some crazy ideas coming from the extreme left and right but lately I've noticed that insanity seems to be infecting average citizens as well. People every where are talking rebellion, in bars, restaurants, shoping centers, online news sites, chat rooms, fitness clubs, the list could go on forever. From my observations it appears that the people are angry about health care, taxes, the economy, but mostly its gun rights and all the talk of restrictions and confiscation by the elected officals. Could an attack on the second amendment be the catalist that could launch this great nation into an armed rebellion?

What I said is we need to restrict the sale of military assault weapons , and as far as I know there isnt anyone coming for your 22's! Thats just "the sky is falling"crowd ! Look , Reagan bannned or resricted the sale of military assault weapons and nobody was marching to peoples homes taking all their guns , now were there ?

There have been more people killed by pointy sticks and blunt objects than all firearms combined, perhaps we should ban pointy sticks and rocks? Timothy McVeigh killed and injured more people with a rental truck than the 5 most deadly mass shootings in the US, should we ban rental trucks? The 911 terrorists killed more with airplanes , maybe airplanes need to go as well?

Actually you statements prove your point is moot. You have been going on for days that no guns are banned and no one is coming for your guns and yet when I asked you to name a specific weapon to consider, the one you named is banned and if I had one they would come and get it and I would find myself in jail.

Also you make my point exactly , yes these assault weapons have been banned or restricted so you havent seen them at the scene of any of these killings . I'm surprised that there hasnt been a public outrage by the republicans over the lose of them !

Google translate , take it up with them !And I know they are banned or restricted . And nope , nothings next . Just trying to limit deaths caused by military assault weapons ! You see things in the shadows that arent there and believe what the right and their wealthy benefactors (gun lobby , NRA, Manufacturers) are pumping out !

Out of the top five worst mass shootings in the US the weapon used most often were handguns. Are they next?

while you were googleing assault rifle you should have brushed up on your German too, Sturmgewehr means " Storm Rifle" not assault rifle. The STG 43 was named storm rifle by Hitler himself for propaganda reasons. And while you were at it you should have brushed up on the laws of this country as well because the STGs are banned and have been for many years, look for FOPA of 1984 and 1986.

You see this kind of crap is typical of what the local righties post . And when they are shown for the fools they are they get their panties in twist and run away . They just cant handle truth and facts ! Now maybe I could be more diplomatic but the what kind of lesson will they learn ?

Not very dazzling !

Also , the german term " Sturmgewehr " translates into "assault rifle"

BTW All one has to do is google German WW2 assault weapon and guess what pops up ? So you see there really are assault weapons !

Now that type of claim is something used by NRA and gun manufacturers ! I dont know where you get your info but the term "military assault weapons " has been used since WW2 when the germans came up with Sturmgewehr 44 and 43 so your saying there were "anti's" during WW2 ? And sorry but I am pro gun , I just can see there is no real reason for any civilian to own a "military assault weapon !

"military assault weapons" is a term used exclusively by antis. There is no such thing as an "assault weapon" and virtually none of the weapons used in the mass shootings have been military? So instead of using blanket terms that mean nothing shouldn't you name specific weapons for us to consider ?

Do you realize that saying you are not an anti because you own guns is the moral equivalent of " I'm not a racist, I know a black guy" ?

And regardless of your tsk-tsk moment the facts remain ! You all have been crying about how your rights are in danger and nothings changed ! BTW , I'm not what you call a "antis" I shoot and own many guns and find pleasure in it , but there still is no reason for a civilian to own a military assault weapon ! So do grace us with you explaination of your need !

Just what nomenclature do you find appropriate ? I find that to be accurate on what we are talking about is the best way to get things straight right outta the box . So lead on but know that this class of weapons regardless of what you wish to call them are the ones that are the most used in mass shootings ! Now I've owned and shot weapons for 60 years and have quite a knowledge of most firearms so dazzle me there casper !

I love it when antis use the term "military assault weapons", It lets the rest of us know just how well educated they are. =P
