The Second Amendment is not about hunting or trap shooting. It is for self protection from goons, thugs, criminals and corrupt politicians, but I repeat myself. Gun control laws are not about guns. They are about control.

Correct control. Not ban... control. So we are controlling certain types of guns and ammo that are allowed. You can still protect yourself.

Raul, you are either ignorant or disingenuous. The rifle allegedly used, and being proposed to ban, is an intermediate cartridge firing semi-auto. A deer rifle can cause far more devastation with a single shot than any of the guns they propose banning.

Then you should have no problem then. 150 types of guns wont be missed if you have other more powerful rifles still available. Can a deer rifle fire off 100 rounds?

Yes it can, many are semi autos.

Yep. We will never notice the liberal tactic of incrementalism being employed in the long game.

You are misguided and deraged raul. Taking arms from people that were legally purchased violates more than the 2nd Amendment. It violates 4,5,6,8,9, and 10. And those are just the ones I can argue off the top of my head.

They just want to limt the I mean instead of 10 they lower it to 7 and feel all good about themselves because they may have stopped a crime somewhere, that gun is out of ammo! In the meantime, some housewife in East Overshoe is being attacked in her home, fires 7 times and she's screwed! Maybe she's a bad shot, maybe she doesn't know how to shoot it cuz it's not hers...whatever reason, but she's screwed because they figure we don't need 10 when 7 will get the job done! Yeeesh!

California Senator Dianne Feinstein is expected to introduce new gun control legislation today in an effort to reinstate the "assault" weapons ban of the Clinton era, but Feinstein's legislation goes far beyond simply banning scary look guns. The bill being introduced today covers a wide range of handsguns, rifles, and shotguns. Firearms lawfully purchased and  included in the legislation as "banned" must be registered.

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:       

120 specifically-named firearms;       

-Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine...
