    A question for the gun owners/advocates on this site

    Should civilians be allowed to purchase a shotgun like the experimental military AA-12 (Click here to see a video demonstration). That is the best CQB weapon I've ever seen....

    On that note, should civilians be able to purchase military grade weapons? I bet many of you still grumble over the 1994 automatic weapons ban. I know what the gun control people are going to say, so I'm not really interested in hearing it...but how would you gun folks feel if your neighbor had one of those shotguns in his closet?

    they could have places where civilians can go and shoot them and other weapons for a nice price. the money could be used to buy equipment for police and firefighters. but imagin some idiot having one of those n deciding to shoot up a school. i dunno, tough question.

    you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for

    There are pro and cons. I don't mind as long as they can pass a federal checked background check. And no mental problems! I collect all kinds of guns from .22 cal. up to the 50 cal. sniper rifle.

    even though you did not ask...the only firearm a civilian should be allowed to purchase/own IMO is a hunting rifle, they have no use for anything else.

    Well, I happen to agree. I think the police/military should have a firepower advantage regular citizens. Otherwise, who'd want to be a police officer?

    Military has a lot more firepower then citizens do. And why a hunting rifle only? they are just as deadly as any gun

    It's been beat to death, but statistics show that crime rates are lower in areas where people are known to carry concealed weapons (legally). Look at Washington D.C. where they banned guns and gun crime continued; all that did was take away people's ability to defend themselves.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    they are very difficult to conceal, most people that own hunting rifles own them for the purpose of hunting, they are not semi-automatic or automatic, it's very rare that a privately owned hand gun is used in self defense, statistic's show that they get used more in domestic violence situations and accidents, i.e. kids getting a hold of them, than shooting an intruder.

    it's just what I believe, and I don't really care if anyone agrees with me on this.

    only thing that would do is keep it out of the hands of law-biding citizens.

    do you really think that is a good argument?

    so what is the point of drugs being illegal and/or controlled?

    That's cool. All of my guns are locked up and out of kids reach. I have one in my night stand for any intruders. I just don't think I should give up my guns because of someone elses mistake or actions. FYI there are some semi-automatic hunting rifles!

    Legalize them and tax the shit out of them. Chances are drugs will still be "illegal" in the sense that every single employer in the US will have a drug policy stating that you can't use heroine and such, and that is perfectly fine.

    There is no reason to keep filling our jails with nonviolent offenders and stoners.

    Yes, I do. You really think theives & murderers give a shit if the gun they have is legal?

    I don't have a gun now, but the second I have a family I will. No way in hell I'll leave my family's safety to chance. I can't imagine anyone thinking differently...

    I personally don't care if Joe Citizen wants to ruin his life with drugs, but making them legal really isn't realistic. Drug abuse & personal safety are two topics that don't really have much in common.

    I have a family, which is why I live in an upper middle class suburban area and have an alarm on my house, I don't need a gun.
