    Well, yes. A semi-automatic or automatic weapon is better at killing many people in a short period of time. Or hit any target(s) with many bullets as such.
    That is an objective fact with evidence.

    But is the same with sniper rifles and DMRs for other types of targets. Basically any long range weapon of a man portable kind has a military application, not just semi-automatic or automatic weapons. Even shotguns.

    Then make the weapons non-transferable and give the heir(s) the money. Or let them be donated to a museum.

    Do you know what a right is?


    A right is something that does not depend on the permission of others.

    No, it is a social contract about behaviour.

    Not sure where you live but in the US rights are what the law protects.

    And you are not the law. The law is a social construct backed by force in the end.

    The supreme law of the US says the right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed.

    So the law protects my rights.

    Our soldiers do not go into combat with semi auto weapons. They use fully auto weapons with a burst feature that can limit the rounds per trigger pull.

    Semi auto is a feature of civilian weapons. Personal protection is a reason to use them.

    How many people really think that handles and barrel shrouds are the dangerous parts of a gun?

    Yes, that is a social construct. It is not the letters, who do it. It is people following the idea of a law. How to behave!

    Making a joke of it, eh.
    Do you claim the shooter carried it concealed?
    If you oppose concealed carry, you should
    consider that open carry has its problems too.
    But if you reject the premise of civilians having
    the right to own or carry guns, then there's really
    no common ground for discussion.

    What @Clizby Wampuscat claimed is neither true nor false. It is too simple.

    I don't claim anything and you should know by now your tactic is a poor one.

    I would prefer no carry.

    The purpose of concealed carry (a license I hold),
    as opposed to open carry, is to avoid alarming
    people not comfortable being around guns.

    My tactic?
    You asked a straight question.
    I gave you a straight answer.
    You made one of those specious gotcha jokes playing on people's emotions.
    Geeze Louise....& you accuse me of the "h" word.

    Killing children is never a joke. What is emotional about that?


    The h word came following your anti brit derogatory comment and yet you revel in you British ancestory. I saw it as a great big H.

    Except when you want to ignore a reasonable
    answer to your own question to me by deflecting
    from it with your joke about killing people.
    Criminy, I sure triggered something.
    Those in glass houses shouldn't
    accuse others of hypocrisy.
