    an assualt weapon is.......................

    an automatic or semi automic gun capable of shooting multiple rounds. An automatic assualt weapon can fire multiple rounds by holding the trigger, a semi automatic , still an assualt weapon, can fire multiple rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger. It can be a rifle or hand gun. An assualt weapon has a detachble clip typically holding 10 rounds or more ....

    Does a good guy with an assualt weapon needs a bigger weapon than a bad guy?

    Do you have a different perspective?

    So how is owning this type of weapon protected under the constitution?

    Should I be allowed to have a machine gun...how about a canyon, gernade, tear gas, bomb...where is the line drawn?

    and what does one do with this weapon?

    I do not care about your 357...I care about assualt weapons as defined above.

    • You have to have a class 3 license to legally own a fully automatic weapon. I would assume the same for a canyon or a grenade. Not sure about the tear gas, but I think you don't know what you are talking about.

    • Just take this #$%$ off the board. TO IGNORE YOU GO!

    • I can make a tooth brush an assault weapon.

    • "shall not be infringed"

    • 'Assault weapon' is a misnomer intended to confuse people (such as yourself) about the difference between it and an assault rifle. You'll find that definitions constantly refer to 'cosmetic features' rather than actual function or capability differences between 'acceptable' firearms and 'evil' firearms.

      And a .357 is actually capable of firing faster than your 'assault weapons' in your definition due to the mechanical advancement of the next round rather than the slower process of using expanding gasses to open and close the chamber.

      Any way you cut it, SWHC will continue to thrive as they produce a wide enough variety to still have viable options unless we are reduced to muzzle loaders.

    • So a knife, a car, a bow cannot be an assault weapon?

      Does a good guy with an assualt weapon needs a bigger weapon than a bad guy?

      I support good over bad, so yes. After reading reports of good with big gun mitigating bad guy, the bad guys might thing twice.

      Do you have a different perspective?

      Clearly yes. I support your right under our constitution to choose not to bear arms, now please don't ban my right to choose to do so. That is the difference.

      So how is owning this type of weapon protected under the constitution?

      2nd Amendment. Read it and the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers. The actual writings of those who created this amendment. Show me proof where they were restricting arms to the citizenry. They were clear on two assumptions, one, the Federal govenment should be in charge of the standing armies, and two, that the Federal government is forbidden to deny it's citizens to keep arms.

      Should I be allowed to have a machine gun...how about a canyon, gernade, tear gas, bomb...where is the line drawn?

      Sure, and you can if your willing to pay the costs of ownership, it is not cheap. I thought your talking about guns, so what does your slippery slope list have to do with that?

      and what does one do with this weapon?

      I carry mine. I target shoot it. I teach my children how to respect and shoot firearms. I also teach them how great this country is that we have the freedom and responsibility to keep and bear arms. I teach them a history of Stalin, Hitler, Po Pot, and Mao and how these brutal men destroyed so many lives.

      I do not care about your 357...I care about assualt weapons as defined above.

      So a 357 cannot be an assault weapon? Hummm......

      Per wikipedia: "The use of the term "assault weapon" is also highly controversial, as critics assert that the term is a media invention, or a term that is intended to cause confusion among the public by intentionally misleading the public to believe that assault weapons (as defined in legislation) are full automatic firearms when they are not."

    • I thought an assault weapon is that stinky thing between your legs. Too bad we can't ban that.

      All I can say is please watch this documentary on you tube called:
      A History Of Gun Control Worldwide Then you will have your answer.. Just copy and paste the title.. WAKE UP!!!

    • At least you're smart enough to look that up on WIKI! lol
      You've just included about 80-90% of the firearms in America. LOL Clueless easterner I guess.

    • Are you saying you want to ban all semi automatic weapons?

      Are you really that dense?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Whether we call a weapon an assault weapon or not misses the point of the 2d Amendment. The founding fathers enacted the provison in order to empower citizens to fight against government tyranny. Thus, the type of weapons allowed by the 2 amendment must be sufficient to effectively counter such tyranny. So the crucial quesion becomes, "What are the weapons available to a tyranical government and what weapon(s) do I need to effectively counter those weapons?"
