I was thinking of recreation in the form of clay shooting , or target practice.The expression "recreational weapon" is an oxymoron and a lie.
Killing animals or people for 'enjoyment' cannot be recreation.
A weapon is a tool, a tool to either take life, any life, or protect life.....any life, or an object of great importance, like a person's home, or any other property the person who owns it believes it important enough to be worthy of protection.The expression "recreational weapon" is an oxymoron and a lie.
Killing animals or people for 'enjoyment' cannot be recreation.
All of that is already against the law. Its illegal for felons to buy or steal a gun from anybody. Just like murder is illegal whether you use a gun, knife, rope, or your bare hands.just not theft, gun shows and private sales for bad people
The SEMI-AUTOMATIC AR-15, about 15+ Million of them in Law-Abiding American hands, have proven themselves as an excellent defensive weapon, as well as fine hunting rifle for those so inclined, besides giving hours of enjoyment & satisfaction on the range or in the yard (wherever it's 'safe' to fire your weapon). They are Americas favorite rifle, & they easily pass the "in common use for lawful purposes like self-defense" test, making them protected by the Second Amendment.This is the best explanation of the 2nd Amendment I've seen.
A deep dive into the Second Amendment, which states that "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." In this video, Kim discusses the Second Amendment with scholars Alan Gura and Adam Winkler...www.khanacademy.org
There is no way that the government could disarm every gun owner in America. So anyone who thinks that they will lose their right to bear arms, or that for some reason this right must be protected, is just delusional. And, would believe that the sky is falling, if told enough times. No right is absolute. And, all rights will in some ways be restricted.
You do not need a fully automatic AK-47 to stop a burglar or a mugger. You don't need a M1 Abrams tank for deer hunting. And, you don't need a suitcase sized minigun for your personal protection. This is not about personal protection based on fear. It is about pure machismo, and males overcompensating.
So why bitch about controlling automatic and high-powered weapons? Aren't the normal weapons to kill humans good enough? Now we have "smart bullets" for sale, to kill humans even more effectively. Really?? I suppose if you give people enough guns, sooner or later they will use them. Everyone is law-abiding, until they're not. Right?
i'm sure all of the brains of the little kids that decorated the walls of sandy hook appreciate your bullshit.A weapon is a tool, a tool to either take life, any life, or protect life.....any life, or an object of great importance, like a person's home, or any other property the person who owns it believes it important enough to be worthy of protection.
A firearm is a tool can be used for both taking/defending life & property, or for enjoyment....recreation. Everyone is aware of the Olympics, where people enjoy many sports, & everyone knows people use sports as a form of recreation.......In the Olympics people use firearms for their enjoyment, in many competitions, where people exhibit their skill in using their firearms, from which they derive much pleasure.....So firearms can be used for either taking life, protecting life, or for pleasure when used in various competitions requiring knowledge & skill in the use of firearms.
Therefore, the expression "recreational weapon" is not an oxymoron nor a lie. It is simply a definition, defining the various ways how an object, a tool, can be used....... a few examples being for self-defense against all enemies foreign or domestic, to provide food for the table, or for sport.......many legal endeavors......many legal activities.
You ARE wasting your words.texan i have never talked about taking away peoples rights..... or their guns. just a little more consideration as to how easily they fall into the hands of murderous fuckwits.....
i don't know why i am wasting my words because that ship has well and truly sailed
This appears to be a fake article.
It is most likely a true article.It is.
It's not a true article.It is most likely a true article.
A very similar article was posted by a researcher on 2019 mass shooters. The post was checked out by Snopes.com. For the purposes of these pictures, "mass shooter" was defined as having shot 4 or more people in one incident. Snopes found that these identities were true. In their analysis, they discuss the different ways in which different organizations define "mass shooting".
After two shooting massacres in August 2019 in the U.S., some commentators focused on the racial identities of perpetrators.www.snopes.com

It really is an extraordinary phenomenon.I don't get it. Americans and their guns. Any fool can see that the fact they have so many shootings is because they have so many guns but they refuse to accept it.
They actually argue that more guns is the solution.
Schools, concert halls, and stadiums are where guns aren't allowed. Crime is far worse in Democrat districts than Republican districts. Maybe we should ban Democrats.It really is an extraordinary phenomenon.
And unfortunately, it's a problem that will never go away.
To Americans, guns are like oxygen - they just can not conceive living without them.
In the future more students will be massacred in school shootings, more concert-goers will be executed in large stadiums, and more women & children will be fatally shot in domestic disputes, and Americans (i.e those who vote Republican, mainly) will turn a blind eye to the murders and say that it never would have happened if the victims were all carrying guns.
They truly are insane.
The country is a lost cause.
Schools, concert halls, and stadiums are where guns aren't allowed. Crime is far worse in Democrat districts than Republican districts. Maybe we should ban Democrats.
The Bill of Rights was written to keep government in check. Personal protection is a side benefit. How many millions of people were murdered by their own government after gun confiscation? I'll take my chances armed. Do what you like.
So you are saying there is no point where its justified to rebel against your government? Did Germans have the right to take up arms against their government in the 1930s? What about people enslaved in China or Africa? Don't think it could never happen to you.I'm sorry Texan but citing the possible need for armed insurrection against your government is perhaps the most terrifying reason for having guns that i can think of.
Especially considering the Trump reign of terror.
