    I've been saying this exact thing for years.

    I think its all too late for gun control laws, there are guns, they are easy to access legally or illegally all over the world, i certainly agree that getting rid of all guns does not work but i can see the logic behind trying to get rid of semi-automatic rifles. Especialy when bolt action or under-lever rifles are more fun (not sure if under-leavers e.g. Winschester are considered semi auto or not please do enlighten me)

    Just wondering if you watched the first you tube link, war of the words. What is your opinion on what the author said?
    In the US to be considered semi automatic the only action needed to fire the next round is a pull of the trigger. Pump and lever action are not considered semi here.

    I think he's very passionate about what he believes and i don't think he's wrong but i dont think he's right either, useful response i know, but i can't see any easy or simple way out of americas gun control issue personaly. As for Britain i know more people who are not in the police force or would be considered criminals in the eyes of the law who i'd trust more with a gun than a lot of the police i have met.

    There is no real issue of gun control. What people are tying to control is crazy. You can't control crazy. So the response many people want is to take away guns from those of us who don't break the law, thus trying to make the people "need" government protection even more. When it comes to guns in the US there are only two things you need to know. First will be the 2nd amendment. The other being;

    full autos should not be available without a shit load of tests most hunters that i know dont use em to hunt at all they are either used by nut jobs for shootings or almost always on a range for fun so making those hard as hell to get will hopefully keep them out of nut jobs hands but you are not gonna stop all of them it just impossible

    Since the Firearms Owners' Protection Act of May 19, 1986, ownership of newly manufactured machine guns has been prohibited to civilians. Machine guns which were manufactured prior to the Act's passage are regulated under the National Firearms Act, but those manufactured after the ban cannot ordinarily be sold to or owned by civilians.

    In England we don't have hand guns, pistols are banned outright, but target rifles are allowed as well as some shotguns, yes OK there is a black market but, the ammunition is hard to get hold off. I feel safer in a gun free place.
    But I completely understand the act of using a weapon, i myself shoot a longbow, but its a different league entirely. (note no licence needed to shoot a bow)

    EDIT: If you will notice that the majority of mass shootings here in the US are done in . . . Gun free Places (Schools, Movie Theaters, ect). On the flip side places that have no gun band, you are statistically safer.
    And if that's the path you choose I understand. For me though I can get my 1911 well before the police arrive to protect me. I feel safest for myself and family knowing that intruders in my home risk their life by breaking into my home. I feel safe knowing the state is not the only owner of fire arms.



    "A Country Boy Can Survive"

    The preacher man says it's the end of time
    And the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry
    The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
    And you only get mugged
    If you go down town

    I live back in the woods, you see
    A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
    I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I can plow a field all day long
    I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
    Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
    We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Because you can't starve us out
    And you cant makes us run
    Cause one-of-'em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma'am
    And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

    We came from the West Virginia coalmines
    And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a crop line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I had a good friend in New York City
    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
    And his taught him to be a businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I'd send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
    Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
    And shoot him with my old 45
    Cause a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
    Cause one-of-'em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma'am
    And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

    We're from North California and south Alabam
    And little towns all around this land
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a crop line
    And a country boy can survive

    I understand that, it is after all your safety, but in the USA you can get a gun anywhere, here you need to go quite deep to get hold of one, and I have defence to

    (don't care what anyone says, this will do more damage)
    - BEASTY January 17, 2013, 2:02 pm
    this pic is similar to my build. Though mine has a trijicon acog.

    So I don't know about a bow doing more damage, rate of fire, range or accuracy being better than a rifle.
    What you have is what I use for deer hunting, when I want to give the deer a chance.
    - johnecash January 17, 2013, 2:07 pm
    ok a machine gun is a different league, i was talking about pistols, if i was going to hunt

    2 inch cuts :P
    but i can reuse ammo
    - BEASTY January 17, 2013, 5:45 pm
    I still have more faith in my 1911 than a bow. I am not sure if you know what a machine gun is but the pic I posted was not of a machine gun. Who cares about reusable ammo when bullets are so much cheaper than a good hunting arrow and tip.
    - johnecash January 17, 2013, 5:53 pm
    I make my arrows...
    and it really looks like a machine gun, there is no gun culture here in England, and I don't play any war games outside of world of tanks and war thunder. looking at it I'm guessing semi auto assault rifle
    - BEASTY January 17, 2013, 6:13 pm
    My bad I assumed everyone knew the difference. Please watch the above link on what makes an assault rifle different from a sporting rifle. Make no mistake I too enjoy using and hunting with a bow n arrows.
    Once again I would suggest you reviewing the video post at the top to have a better understanding about guns and the fact surrounding them. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
    - johnecash January 17, 2013, 6:19 pm
    Thank you for clarifying. I see these at the air force base next door to me
    The SA80 is a mean gun, makes a pretty sound to :P
    - BEASTY January 17, 2013, 6:44 pm
    I tried to buy one but had to settle for the aug. the sa80 is just not on the public market yet. Ennfield makes wonderful guns. Did you watch the video on the difference between automatic and semi?
    - johnecash January 17, 2013, 6:49 pm
    yes i did, informative, nice to see somebody who is acctualy safe on a range
    - BEASTY January 17, 2013, 6:59 pm
    Guns are not a demon, they are not good, they are what ever the users want them to be. If you don't have access to them the next best option is what you have. Have you ever made a bow yourself? I can say I have and have killed one deer with it. I used to be real big into compound bows. But these days I prefer something a little less "artificial".
    - johnecash January 17, 2013, 7:10 pm
    I meant that the guy in the video keeps hit guns without clips in them and doest dick around, unlike most of you tube.... I feel patronised

    the first argument is just plain stupid. So you want all kids in school to have guns? What the fuck?
    Also there are other reasons. Usually there are shootings in schools because some kids couldn't take it anymore or something like that.
    And they shoot themselve most of the times. So if someone had a real mental issue and all the people at the gun show would make fun of him for years this person would start a fucking shooting. Yes he would be killed but he wouldnt care. I am not even sure, because firing a gun at a gun show doesnt seem the brightest idea because you may hit the wrong stand.

    I agree that it's stupid for the kids to have guns. Not sure what you misread to think anyone wants kids carring guns. The rest of you comment I would ask you restate due to the fact that I have no idea what you are saying.

    Not sure what your point is. Other countries are more than welcome to take the guns from law abiding citizens so that only the state and the criminals have the guns. Not sure who I trust less, the state or criminals. To be fair to criminals they are honest about being crooks.

    The president and his batch of nitwits are just trying to look like they have control. They don't of course, the mid-west states despite being out matched in the political department hold most of the cards in this game.
