But it is designed to be a killing machine short of being fully automatic. I’ve shot them before. Of course they’re fun. But I would give up the pride and right and fun in shooting or owning one if it means lowering the number killed in just one mass shooting attempt. I have my concealed carry license and own guns. It just made me think. Don’t accuse me of saying what I didn’t say.

Your name calling of people who were talking about a serious issue just shows what a fool you are. I own a single barrel shotgun, you may be able to kill one person with it, but you cannot conduct a mass shooting. I also owns an antique 22 caliber revolver, which You most certainly cannot conduct mass killing with. What he is trying to say, is AR 15s are the perfect gun for mass shootings, and they need to be banned. If you don’t understand this, then you just need to go ahead and join the Russian army. You clowns are so worried that some imaginary bogeyman is gonna come and take your precious guns that you can’t even think straight.

They need to be banned because they are a weapon of resistance against an errant government. The reason for the same weapon is that the same manipulators choose it to trigger stronger regulation, to limit resistance to their goal. It will then be all automatics. Hillary is for regulation.

No. It's not. In most states it's not even legal to hunt deer with it, because the bullet is so small and does so little damage that you are unlikely to actually kill the deer with it.

A gun is most definitely not designed as a killing machine, it's designed to fire a bullet at what the operator aims at.

Americans fire more than 8 billion rounds of ammunition each year. A range session can easily chew through 200 rounds fired at nothing more than pieces of paper. This is BY FAR the most common use of guns: putting holes in paper.

Some 45,000 of those rounds kill people, about 60% of those are suicides, and the vast majority of the others are crime-related (which is to say, involved in some other crime at the time the gun is fired).

0.0005625 % of rounds fired from guns kill people. Doesn't sound like things that were designed to be killing machines. There are somewhere around 484M guns in the US, so about 0.0092 % of guns in the US kill people each year. With 284M cars in the US, about 0.0123 % of cars kill someone each year.

Freaks who are intent on killing people will certainly use the easiest weapon they have access to, so guns certainly are used by evil people. But so are cars, pressure cookers, knives. More people are beaten to death each year by someone using their bare hands than are killed by rifles.

Please know and understand what you are talking about. The majority of semi-auto AR (Armalite Rifle) are chambered for .556x45 NATO. Some rifles chambered strictly foe .223 can not stand the higher pressure loads of the military .556 and like wise some rifles chambered strictly for the Remington .223 the .556 will not seat properly in the .223 chamber. So while most rifles will handle both rounds one must be sure that your particular rifle will handle both or you will most probably have a lot of receiver parts making contact with your face the next time you go to the range.

You are 100% correct on the 5.56 vs .223 as far as chambering goes. People need to know the difference when they're using one so that they don't get a face-full of receiver parts. Same for .357 and 38 special, but you can't stuff a .357 into a 38, I suppose. Or any +P ammo.

Still, a lot of AR-15s are .223, and not 5.56/.223. I can't find a breakdown of sales number for .223 vs 5.56, but the .223 being somewhat cheaper my guess was people bought more of them.

I absolutely do not agree with the knee jerk discussion of banning AR-15's. I own one in .223 and the only thing it's killed is some prairie dogs out West and paper.

However, I disagree with your assertion that a .223 bullet does so little damage that you're unlikely to kill a deer. I would agree that a deer shot with a .223 round may well run off and not be recovered or that even a human shot with a .223 may well not be immediately incapacitated.

However, a .223 round moves at such high velocity that it creates tremendous internal damage and a large exit wound. I've personally seen what it can do in a Combat Casualty Care Course with anesthetized goats shot with this round.

You are correct that a .223 is not a good deer hunting round as it doesn't "anchor" a deer, while .308 in an AR 15 is an excellent deer hunting round, but a human being shot center mass with a .223 is in a world of hurt. It's no sissy.

Pretty common knowledge, in fact, they are built to maim. Less effective than most hunting rifles.

Does everyone need an AR? No, but the platform isn’t the issue as it pertains to mass shootings. Should they be harder to get because of the capacity? Probably, but then you’re really looking at a California compliance type scenario for affixed magazines and or 10 round limiters.

I have a Remington 1100 with extended mag. I can shoot more lead in one single 3in 000 cooper plated buckshot shell than a 15 round AR magazine of .556. And my remington can hold 11 of those bad boys. NOW THAT is a weapon designed to kill.

You can also get a semi-auto .223 hunting rifle and just put a bigger mag in it. It will be the same gun. Once the mass shooters start using those, they will ban hunting rifles. It’s a slippery slope.

How is it a different responsibility than any other firearm? It's not like a pit bull or something that is going to escape and run wild.

I'm often amused by the whole "assault rifle" panic.

Even people who hate guns will not be overly frightened of a "traditional" Ruger 10/22.

But if I buy $100 worth of plastic, I can convert one into an "assault rifle".

It's the exact same rifle, takes the exact same magazine, fires the exact same rounds, at exactly the same rate of fire. But it's black and scary! It looks like an army gun! Panic!

In 2019, the number of homicides in the U.S. from guns resulted in 14,414 deaths. During 2019, the number of deaths from auto accidents were 36,096.

A gun is a metal and plastic object that requires an individual to make it work. I have a pistol within arms length that has a full clip and one in the chamber in case I need it quickly. Between family and guests, 100s of times many have unknowingly passed by the business end of pistol and not a single person has been shot. It doesn't work that way. Someone has to make the decision to pull the trigger. The trigger won't pull itself.

An automobile is a metal and plastic object and there are 3 parked outside my house. Between family and guests coming and going, not once have they killed anyone in an accident while parked. Someone operating them has to make a bad decision or their is some kind of mecahnical failure for a vehicle to be deadly in a driving accident.

More regulations on guns won't stop the idiots that decide to kill. If they can't get guns, they'll probably just drive an auto threw a wall and and slash the survivors with a machete.

A life for a life - if a person is guilty of MURDER, they die too.

You are so wrong on this. I am a very conservative person, but I see how far off we are on guns in the US. Did you know that we have 10 times the shooting deaths as Europe for the same population? The ONLY difference is that we let pretty much anybody buy a gun. We could save 12,000 American lives per year with gun laws to limit who gets a gun.

I lived in IL and for law abiding citizens to purchase ammo or any firearm, you have to apply to the State Police and pay a fee for a background check to get a FOID (Firearm Owners ID) card. The card is only good for 5 years, then there is another fee and background check to see if anything changed. These people aren't the problems.

IL gun laws include banned guns, waiting periods and lists of those that can't own guns. The majority (if not all] of those shooting up Chicago, fall into the non-eligible to own a gun in IL due to age or felonies. So what's happening there?

I have some bad news for you. In a 2020 bill, Democrats Chris Murphy of Connecticut, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Ayanna Presley of Massachusetts and Ilan Omar of Minnesota proposed legislation to cut all funding of police officers being stationed in schools due to the proposed threats African American students who couldn’t find Africa on a map may be triggered by seeing a cop in a learning safe space.

This was also backed by socialist groups AFT ( American Teachers Federation) and NEA ( National Education Assocation) along with multiple civil rights groups.

So it’s safe to say liberals aren’t only wanting to murder babies who are days from being born through abortion, now they are wanting to leave them defenseless in schools.

The trend has nothing to do with an AR. The “trend” is a society of people that have been “cultured” to speak, think and act a certain way while attacking the values and morality of right and wrong in the process. Most people know the difference between the two but yet they still allow their judgement to be influenced by those who don’t think we are capable of making those decisions on our own behalf. Unfortunately, anytime we start out with one regulation it always leads to another regulation which would also be a trend. It won’t stop at one. Address the correct problem and trend in a more favorable direction.

Just from my memory, which isn’t as good as it once was, it seems like a lot of these mass shooters have purchased their guns legally. I wonder, for how many of them, was this their first legal gun purchase? This kid was only 18, so I am guessing in this case it may have been. I would like to see that statistic. Where I am going with this is, if this indeed is a high percentage, would it be a reasonable approach to do a more thorough background investigation into first time gun purchasers? Maybe a waiting period, a thorough check of their social media posts, and anything else that might show red flags. Once a person has been vetted as thoroughly as possible on the first purchase, then subsequent purchases can be handled with the current background criteria. I am a conservative, gun owner and avid hunter. But I would be fine with something like this if it would help reduce these incidents. I also understand that people intent on doing bad things are going to find a way but I believe most reasonable, law abiding people would be ok with the inconvenience on their first time purchasing a gun if it helps stop this type of thing. Just a thought.

owned a gun(I’m a woman). I don’t get the obsession with guns and the NRA crap or killing animals with them. It’s sickening really. BUT I think you should be able to own guns if you want to because of all the crazies you may need to protect yourself from. I do NOT understand why anyone other than the police or military need these kinds of assault weapons. They should be illegal however I know if someone really wants one they can find one.

I’m so sick of Congress (McConnell etc) who the NRA has in their back pocket, doing nothing to try to help slow down these crazies. It may not work much but at least TRY to do something because any laws in place now aren’t working.
They keep saying it’s the people not the guns and I agree with that for sure but how do you get these nuts help if they don’t accept it or their parents don’t get it for them? We must try something else but God forbid these people in Congress cross the NRA. Pathetic

Should a ban/limit on civilian body armor be enacted?

What purpose does this serve? If you need body armor while hunting, then you are doing it wrong.

And hog hunting is dangerous and protection is needed. But the hogs are not going to shoot back.

If you need it for daily protection, then I suggest you move.

Criminals don't care about regulations and they don't follow the rules.

It's a simple concept that people have a hard the grasping. Guns don't sprout legs and arms and kill people. People kill people.

The problem isn't AR 15's, it's mentally ill people who lack any sense of morality. But, since morals are inconvenient in 2022 we just let people think and do anything they want and then become outraged when they finally go off.

Notice the same people screaming that men can have babies want MORE gun laws. That says it all. Thanks, but no.

I stopped listening to crazy people.

Your wording is confusing. There are some real crazy men out there. How many women can you name that have been mass murderers? I can’t think of any but there may be a few. Criminals are not deterred if there is something that are intent on doing. I get it. It’s not beyond my grasp but we can’t just not do anything and let this continue happening.

...isn't your thing then.

It is beyond your grasp if you actually believe the problem is the gun. The gun is merely the instrument.

If you want it to stop the quickest solution is to arm teachers. Mass shootings don't take place when shooter's know they're likely to receive return-fire.

Nobody breaks into houses in my neighborhood for the same reason.

Think about it. Mass shooters show up exclusively in "Gun Free Zones". Why might that be??? Because they know everybody is unarmed! The good-guys can't shoot back. It's a turkey-shoot. "Gun Free Zones" only disarm the good-guys. Criminals, and the mentally ill don't follow the rules. They do whatever they want.

Gun Free Zones are like billboards that scream "PLEASE COME AND SHOOT US".

Here's a thought: When someone thinks that Men can have babies, or believes that adding 1+1 is racist, or that equity is the same thing as equality I propose they be locked in an insane asylum. They're clearly mentally compromised, and a danger to society at-large. Mass-shootings will become a thing of the past when we effectively deal with crazy people, instead of coddling them.

I would like to see a process requiring a background check and 7-day waiting period for purchasing one's first firearm, and the legal age to purchase a firearm should be 21, not 18. If under 21 an adult should have to sign off for them and assume liability until they reach 21. For private sellers, either adhere to the process in place or assume that same liability for the actions of the person you sold the firearm to. This doesn't take away anyone's guns, but it would serve to help people mature up enough, get their teen angst out of their system, and hold others accountable to an extent if they armed someone that has forfeited their right to bear arms through criminal activity and existing laws. Nothing will stop sick, deranged people from committing terrible acts of violence, but IMO this would curb opportunities and lessen the volume.

Interesting take. A person can graduate from High School at 18 years old and join the military. During the week, said person can shoot various automatic and semiautomatic weapons in preparation for defense of our Nation. Yet, when leaving the barracks for the weekend, they can't legally purchase a firearm for self defense since they're not 21. OK.

First off, while on base that teenager is being supervised by a military hierarchy. When they leave the base for the weekend, away from work, they aren't. So yeah, absolutely. Now, if a parent, or perhaps a superior at work, were to sign off on a personal purchase and the liability that goes with that until that person turns 21, then have at it. We can all appreciate the 18-year-old's job choice and willingness to work at defending our country, but they're still an 18-year-old.

I am not saying an 18-year-old shouldn't own a gun. I am saying an 18-year-old, regardless of what line of work they are in, should not be able to purchase a gun on their own, and that whoever signs off on that purchase should assume liability due to that choice. The age to purchase a firearm on your own should be 21. Give the teen angst and stupidity of youth some time to wear off. It's not a perfect science, but it would be an improvement.

Used in a lot of ways. How many of these were full auto ? A skilled shooter could do tons of damage with a hunting rifle as well. I have an AR that Is basically set up as a hunting rifle. You’d probably call it an assault rifle though.

Take these away and they will just use AK-47’s and 74’s from the black market. They are plentiful around the world
