This is really misleading. I want to make it clear I in no way support a total firearm ban, but I don't think that banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines to the average owner is a bad idea at all, and support a licensing program for those. There has not been a mass shooting in Australia since the ban and Australians never had the type of ownerships rights or percentages of this country ever. Read this entire article if you want to make a informed decision on the real situation is Aus. www.snopes.com/crime/statistics/ausguns.asp

Right cause that doesn't infringe on my right. Who gets to approve who's allowed to get an "assault" weapon? What's an "assault weapon? Anything can become an assault weapon. I assault you with my car keys and now I have assault keys???? Can you define high capacity? Or are high capacity magazines just some arbitrary number because you think or feel that's all a person needs to defend him/her self or family. Take your emotions out of school shootings and look at facts. Law abiding citizens aren't the enemy, criminals are, so focus on the people breaking the law, not the tools that they use to perform their crimes. They'll just find another tool.

My .22 Remington 552 semi-auto rifle will hold 20 rounds in a tubular magazine. Is that considered a "high capacity assault" rifle?

You are right the airplane was not on the quiz...neither was the slice of bacon that could lead to a heart attack.

The 2nfto amendment is for our defense against a tyrannical government. Disallowing us access to the same arms as the government has will be the beginning of the end

completely agree with the first statement. but does anyone have realistic expectations to have access to the same arms the gov't has? i love and value my 2nd admnt rights and oppose any weapons ban or gun/ammo control of any kind. the more rebuttal i have to whack jobs and liberals the better. help me out here.
