US President Barack Obama wants to reinstate an assault weapons ban in the wake of the mass killings in Newtown, Connecticut, his spokesman says.

Jay Carney said the president was "actively supportive" of a Democratic senator's plan to introduce a bill on the first day of the next Congress.

Mr Obama would also consider curbs on high-capacity ammunition and loopholes, Mr Carney said.

Are you...

You guys are retarded, right?

Those things already exist in MOST states.
Insurance thing was one I hadn't considered though.

Still, you're being retarded.

We don't need ak47s in our cars because we don't live in Burkaburkastan unlike you, Silver.

I sure do love hearing Europeans who know nothing at all about American culture or firearms try to lecture us on how to handle them. Makes me lol hard.

Shut up. The last "Assault weapons" ban from 1994-2004 did nothing to lower crime and crime rates have actually been dropping steadily for something like the last 20 years while states loosening restrictions on firearms ownership have risen in that same time period. If guns were really the problem we should see crime rates going up, not down.

Or we could be like England and Australia who are current enjoying increases in violent crime and gun usage during crimes despite having total bans in place for the past 5-10 years. Sure is working out well for them.

Actually from what I know Britain has less gun related crimes, but more of every other type of crimes. (They use knives, bows, whatever they can get their hands on really)

www.gunfacts.info

While it's not impartial it's got all the statistics (including citations) you would ever need to explain to idiots how wrong they are about gun control.

Some gems from that report:

"Ironically Firearm use during crimes has doubled in the United Kingdom in the decade following the handgun ban" (Reported by the London Times)

"Britain has the highest rate of violent crime in Europe and is higher than the US and South Africa" (reported by the UN)

Just 3 years after Britain's firearm ban in 1997 the British Home Office reported a 170% increase in armed robber, a 144% increase in abductions, a 130.9% increase in assaults, a 117% increase in attempted murders, 112% increase in sexual assaults and an overall 40% increase in the use of handguns over that 3 year period.

And that's just for Britain. There is also a section about how useless Australia's gun ban has worked out to be. Furthermore if guns were really the problem why doesn't Switzerland have a massacre every 10 seconds? After all, every adult male in Switzerland is required to own a Sig 550 (a full auto one at that) as part of how the Swiss self defense force works. They have a shooting crime rate about the same as Britain does with far more guns in circulation. Guns aren't the problem. Idiots are.

And since idiots also like to ignore facts I'm not looking at this shitpost again. Enjoy your dream world Silver.

I still don't see any problem for mandatory psychological tests for people who want to have guns. They're healthy, then they can have any gun they want.

That is all very well, but I had a test like that, and it consisted of 200 questions like "Do you want to kill yourself?" or "Do you want to hurt others around you?"
I mean who would answer them truthfully even if it was so?

change it back


Airsoft has nothing to do with with real weapons, except look.

I'd say silver changed it seeing as, the only two positions that can change boards and board names is CSV and Director.

He changed it so that he would have a place to post this.
