YOU have a valid point, and it stinks of greed and money. If that is what they want, let them eat cake, as their kids could be the next innocent victim! Come near me and I will blow their a**es away! Then drag em inside for surety! I don't need an AK47 assualt for that, I CAN SHOOT! I have a double barrel shotgun and a good aim, I don't need all the extras, I know how to use what I have quite well! Other need to acquire that skill and downsize unless they have something to worry about...Well bravo for you. So eff everyone elses rights cause "you can shoot"? You don't need "good aim" for a shotgun, it's point & shoot. Get off your high horse. Show me you have good aim w/a handgun, then I'll believe you.
I can vouch for that. I was a Security Police augmentee for a while in the Air Force. When we had familiarization training with the M12 (what the military calls the Winchester Model 1912 shotgun) I remember the training NCO telling us, "you don't need accuracy with one of these to hit your intended target; you just have to be close." (Their intended use was crowd control during a civil disturbance.)
All of you folks are NOT funny, if you need an assault type weapon with a clip of 30, you need to go to a gun range and get practice or HANG IT UP! Common sense has been flushed down the drain in this country. Have your guns, just use practical weapons to protect yourself, not a weapon designed to kill a crowd! The 2nd ammendment is to be able to protect yourselves, these rapid round arsenal guns were not in existence then or an exclusion would have been included, BET ME! I dropped my NRA membership because they do NOT stand for what they once stood for, they have become a voice other than their original purpose. My biggest fear is really not the nuts we know about running around, its the ones we don't know are running around who show up with these weapons. Knock me all ya want, I feel your plea, it is your god given right, but for the better good I refrain from agreeing. 4 doors up in a good neighborhod a lil girl was caught in gunfire because 2 fools were fighting it out and she was at the wrong place at the wrong time. This was 3 years ago and it sticks with me today, Newtown has nothing to do with my feelings on this. Respectfully...
