I HATE to be the wet blanket, as I do believe Scott is quite sincere in his act and symbolism...but replacing the barrel section of that weapon is only a matter of unscrewing the sawed one off and screwing a new one on.
With that being said, I very much appreciate that man's views and example.
Interesting how the victims understand and respect the fbi because unfortunately they now know first hand. while the fbi may not be perfect they are the ones that rush into the sound of the very worst gunfire. I could go on and on about why the fbi is great and how vital they are to the national security of our country. A shame they too are victimised by poor leadership in Washington.
I expect there will be a large percentage that do not comply with a mandatory buyback. That’s ok, you get around that by making it a minimal crime to possess (misdemeanor, 30 days, plus mandatory criminal forfeiture of the firearms), but a felony (10 years) for transfer. Turning in a prohibited firearm results in no penalties.
1: Did Australia have a mandatory buy-back?
2: Where do you personally fall on this debate?
It was only a matter of time before the Right tried to silence the students:
By tomorrow Alex Jones is going to be claiming this “kid” is really Oprah in “white face”, starting to come at Trump after he moved on her like a bitch on twitter Sunday night.
Why would you have an AR-15 if you couldn't fire it?
Your post read as sarcasm as if a penalty for having an AR wouldn't be a deterrent because it doesn't stop people from using marijuana at home and I was saying that you can't really use your AR in your home undetected like you can marijuana so it's a false comparison.
1. Yes. They spent somewhere around $500m AUS for the first buyback program, and then had a second one 6-7 years later.
2. I’m personally pro gun and a firearms owner. But I’m no longer willing to defend assault rifles given the carnage they cause. It’s not the sole answer, but I think it has to be part of any answer, or it’s no answer at all.
Just to give some of you guys an inkling:
That's just his AR builds. Only one of those is factory-assembled.
That was posted earlier this afternoon in a car forum I belong to. "Vroom-vroom" guys also tend to be "pew-pew" guys. And I'm no exception.
And that's not even remotely the most extreme example I have encountered. I know people who have converted their basements into sound-proofed gun ranges.
Here's an example I found on YouTube:
You could fire it in emergencies, you can fire it in the forest when no one is looking, etc. The point is that making it illegal to own is not going to deter people who sleep with their AR, people who fear zombies, people who fear a red dawn scenario, etc.
I think a buyback program can help, it would just have to be REALLY sweet to get a lot of the guns turned in.
In Japan, you have to pass a mental health exam to own a gun. All those people would fail, I imagine.
