We'll never see our lot do anything like this :-(

Democrats hold "sit-in" protest

I don't get it.

Our Congress has lost the plot.

What is so hard about have proper vetting and due process gun laws?

You are vetted to get on the list and you have due process to get off the list.

If they would just add vetting and due process it would pass in a flash.

In this country this is what humanity looks like. It's a called "due process of law". No 'Black Lists' without "due process of law".

Fair treatment through the normal judicial system, especially as a citizen's entitlement.

If US citizens are so concerned about their safety and insist that semi-auto assault rifles are and absolute essential for their safety, then do they, as any soldier on active duty does, sleep with it?

No semi-auto assault rifles are major cover hogs so mine sleeps on the floor next to the dog.

Forgot to add:

"In 2014, Washington became the first state in the nation to pass a universal background checks law by voter initiative. The law requires all private sales of firearms to be conducted through a federally licensed firearms dealer who will conduct a background check on the private buyer. Washington also requires law enforcement to run a background check before returning a confiscated firearm."

I should have asked if there is fingerprinting & backgrounds that's all.

Here's for my state. To purchase no finger printing but background checks by dealers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Washington

For concealed permit it is State's Driver's License, finger prints and FBI background check through City/County level law enforcement. With a concealed permit there is no waiting or check to purchase in my state.

Is that near enough the same for semi's?

TY

Sorry I do not understand your question.

Semi-autos are legal in most places and are not covered in the full-auto rules I pointed out.

Most states have a 5 round max capacity for hunting with semi-auto magazine fed weapon. You have to be using a 5 round magazine or one that is blocked off and only holds 5 rounds when hunting. I hunt with a 308/7.62 M1A and a 20 round mag (semi-auto civilian version of a M-14) and have been stopped every time by Game Warden to check my magazine for 5 round capacity. Non compliance is lose of permit/weapon and possible jail time. Game Wardens/Park Rangers around here (Washington state) pack major heat and are trained for it.

Depends on what you mean by "understanding".

Following all the gun related threads, my understanding is this, so correct if wrong.

1: For normal home defense against armed intruders, shouldn't a handgun be sufficient?

2: Semi or even full auto weaponry are needed for protection from a tyrannical federal government.

With the ease that semi's are available, Orlando & others will continue to happen. So what is the solution to that?

I correct no one but speak only for my self.

Someone asked me once what was I afraid of and I replied "nothing". Har!!

1)- I prefer not to be out gunned by intruders of any kind so handguns are at the bottom of the list of weapons.
2)- Semi or even full auto weapons are preferred for any and all defenses/intruders.
3)- Who ever has the most fire power wins.

A side note most weapons sold to civilians are not capable of full auto mostly because the receiver is not machined out to hold those full auto parts. You can't put them in the weapon.

Full Autos have been illegal since 1986, but fortunately pre-86 full autos are still legal and transferable to civilians. Prices have went up considerably, as you might imagine. $20,000 for a pre-86 transferable MP5 or MP5k. Full autos are legal in at least 25 different states. The firearm must have been registered with the BATFE by May 1986- no additional full autos may be transferred to a private citizen. Transfer is handled through a licensed machine gun dealer in your home state, and requires fingerprinting, approval from your Chief Law Enforcment Officer, a background check by the BATFE, and payment of a one time $200 transfer tax. “Burst fire” is still classed as a machine gun. A LEGAL, TRANSFERRABLE full auto will cost several thousand dollars, due to the finite supply of them. An M16 rifle is currently selling for around $15,000-$16,000. Some states have more restrictive laws that do not permit possession.

A weapon such as a large magazine semi automatic rifle is a very efficient killing machine as are sawed off shotguns and machine guns. We have effectively gotten rid of sawed off shotguns and machine guns, why are semi automatic rifles different?

Or any rapid fire weapon? (this includes gas, pump & lever actions)

Any half decent hunter or sportsperson doesn't need anything more than a single/double barrel single/double shot or a bolt action repeating long rifle, it only takes 1 shot to do the job cleanly (if you can't/or don't do that, then you don't deserve to own a firearm at all).

Only would be homicidal maniacs need anything more that.

Cheers.

Hey! I resemble that remark. Har! ;^)

In the seventies I was called a "Baby Killer". Semper Fidelis.

They are a little $pendy though.

what your saying so this type of thing can continue ?

I didn't say anything.

I only posted links to openly known information in hopes of adding something accurate and constructive to the dialog.

AK-47

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-47

Compared to the AK47 does the M4A1 jam or malfunction when in sand, dirt or water?

Yes

https://www.quora.com/Compared-to-the-AK47-does-the-M4A1-jam-or-malfunction-when-in-sand-dirt-or-water

Most jams come from bad ammo and improperly loaded magazines and poorly kept firearms and lastly operator error.

If Trump wins the election it'll be the first time in history that a billionaire moved into public housing vacated by a black family!
