Would you rather they be smart and simply ban detachable magazines?Blind_Io;n3546695 said:New AWB introduced.
Looks like they haven't learned anything about what they are trying to regulate, barrel shrouds are still listed as features. There is also a very long list of specific patterns and models that will no longer be allowed to be produced, including the Calico.
So the rate was falling and has continued to fall. However I also read that the number of guns has increased in Australia above the level it was prior to the massacre mentioned. Yet gun deaths (which seem to be mostly suicides) and overall crime continues to decrease despite the increase in gun ownership.prizrak;n3546678 said:A good video on Australian gun control.
I was thinking the same thing about getting an AR or AK sooner...or get both. Need a Mosin Nagant first but one of those are the very next on the list.Blind_Io;n3546701 said:now I might need to move up my timetable on the CZ Scorpion.
That's the crux of the issue really, violence is an extremely complex issue, what might work for reducing crime wouldn't work for reducing school shootings, what works for either of those won't work for suicides, etc... Yet if you dare to bring that up the Chuck Schumers and Bloombergs of the world label you a gun nut and accuse you of wanting dead kids.Firecat;n3546705 said:So the rate was falling and has continued to fall.

So there is something working there. Keeping guns in the hands of the right people and not criminals.
The problem is why try to reduce issues to their simplest form. Ban guns or more guns.
It's a "military rifle", and if the anti-gun people get that label slapped on stuff to somehow make a ban happen say goodbye to mil surps.LeVeL;n3546714 said:Pretty sure a Mosin is the last thing they'll try to ban :lol: That said, I don't think any ban is coming - the GOP knows it's political suicide.
Nah it has wood on it and no pistol grip so no one would look at it twice.JCE;n3546723 said:It's a "military rifle", and if the anti-gun people get that label slapped on stuff to somehow make a ban happen say goodbye to mil surps.
Granted I doubt that'll happen as well. At least in the majority of states. The northeast and Commiefornia are another story.
I'm sorry? That'd be like United Airlines pulling their discounts and sponsorship with the weed community. Yeah, weed hasn't killed anyone but, imagine if this were any other organization that wasn't headed by white male "Christians."calvinhobbes;n3546731 said:"Politicians need to stay out of business!"
Some do yes, but not the majority which is mostly what I was referring to. And frankly Texas disappoints me on this subject.LeVeL;n3546725 said:Careful now... Several Northeast states have way more lax gun laws than, say, Texas.
