Thanks for the update on the Switzerland vs England figures, I use that example all the time, kind of hard to argue with cold hard facts <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />.

Paula,

what a crock!

Expalin to me how allowing nutcases and criminals the same access to asualt weapons as law abiding cicitzens is a good thing.

Explain to me ho w not having assualt weapons affects you and your family in defending itself against your government.

Explain to me how youd tell families of mowed down children or inocents in a park that assault weapons are needed for hobbies or hunting or defense against your lame government.

I shot nearly all issue auto weapons in the military for years and feel relatively confident my hunting rifle and shotgun would defend my family just fine thanks.

Don't buy it , not one Canadian peso's worth.

One thing is for sure the cats out of the bag in the USA never to return so assualt weapons are pretty much a must to even the playing field.

Canada has a good thing going they shouldn't screw it up.

Wrong. Criminals and mental patients are ALREADY prohibited from owning firearms. You should know that already.

"Explain to me ho w not having assualt weapons affects you and your family in defending itself against your government."

Wrong. Nobody is talking about assault weapons. As others have told you before, we are talking about self-loading weapons, not full auto. Let's get the semiauto ban lifted, then let's get to work on the 1934 ban on full auto.

"Explain to me how youd tell families of mowed down children or inocents in a park that assault weapons are needed for hobbies or hunting or defense against your lame government."

I'd look them in the eye and say, quite truthfully: "My firearms did nothing to you and never will." Not that such a ridiculously melodramatic scenario would ever occur though.

"One thing is for sure the cats out of the bag in the USA never to return so assualt weapons are pretty much a must to even the playing field."

Good point. I'm never going to give mine up. If me owning an SKS upsets you, well too bad. Get over it because there is NOTHING you can do about it.

Wrong Wrong . You are assuming all nutcases are known and have a neon sign blinking "about to crack" The sniper shootings case in point.

Wrong Wrong. I am talking about semi autos and any other weapon that a dummy can convert to full auto. Full auto ban is a given.

WRong Wrong. The same laws that allow you to buy assualt weapons also allows nutcases known or about to become access the same as you. After you pick up your teeth if you ever said that to me after my kids were killed Id explain how your wrong again. BTW this does happen all too much I suggest you look up workplace gun violence and school shootings and learn some.

Might I suggest that you all take this to PM. It is getting a tad more than ugly.

Who was it that said (in effect) "the weather's not gonna change, move"? The climate on the gun issue is pretty well set too (I hope), so what are you waiting for?

Troy

P.S. Sadly, I don't really believe this, we've got a long way to go before enough gun laws have been repealed <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />.
