    Default Ahh the new bread of lawyers entering the ranks.

    Must be a new common core standard of the second amendment in college.

    For Lives and Liberty: Banning Assault Weapons in America | The Institute of Politics at Harvard University

    Assault rifles make up only 1.7 percent of all guns in America. Their function in society is dispensable. A 2005 Gallup poll found that 67 percent of gun owners carried firearms for protection, 66 percent for target shooting, and 58 percent for hunting. None of these activities—the three most popular for gun users—requires assault weapons. They are inaccurate, highly visible, and bulky. Given assault weapons’ limited practicality, why even involve the risk?

    That's why we don't own assault weapons. Hard to carry around a machine gun you turds.

    Just sent this email over to Harvard.

    "Ms. Collins - I would like you to forward the following links to Jake Matthews. He might want to look at the truth before he decides to interpret the 2nd amendment. It concerns me as well as millions of Americans that he might possibly one day actually take an oath to uphold the constitution while practicing law. As a lawyer should understand, ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law. Neither is it an excuse for writing an uninformed misguided emotional piece as was written. I will chalk it up to him not knowing any better. Hopefully now he does. Although he is entitled to his own opinion, he isn't entitled to his own facts.

    Respectfully,
    Dr. XXX XXXXXX

    Assuming by assault rifle they are referring to AR15s, inaccurate? I guess that's why they are one of the top guns used in competition shooting. Because anyone serious about competition would want to use an inaccurate gun.. hmmm. Oh wait, inaccurate.. They must mean inaccurate refers to their description of assault rifle.
    There are 3 kinds of people in this world: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder, what just happened. Unfortunately the third category is out-distancing the other 2 by a large margin.

    "They are inaccurate, highly visible, and bulky. Given assault weapons’ limited practicality, why even involve the risk?" Clearly this person has never held one. Does this mean they aren't as dangerous as the media and other ignorant activists say they are? Does this not negate the feature based ban logic? So I guess this means our troops are using fully automatic versions of these lumbering monstrosities, wrought with limited practicality and high risk. What an idiot.

    Now, let's compare that with an ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN that the police states have.

    Inaccurate? - Let's ban pistol grips that "allow rapid and accurate spray firing from the hip.

    Highly Visible?- Let's ban flash hiders that allow "concealment of the muzzle flash from others."

    Bulky?- Let's ban telescoping stocks that make the OAL a few inches shorter.


    No, I'm serious, they consider that an "assault weapon's ban!"

    They don't know if they are coming or going! xD

    The term "assualt rifle/weapon" has many meanings depending only upon opinions. The antis exploit the term to their benefit and at the same time can not distinguish the diffrence between a brake or a break.

    firearms owners carry firearms for protection, target shooting, and hunting.

    However according to this guy, they're bulky and inaccurate. Why then, do we issue REAL assault weapons to our troops? In fact, why do all countries who have a military issue their troops some variation of an assault weapon? Perhaps we have been wrong all along! We should issue them a nice sxs shotgun or bolt action hunting rifle instead. This way they're better equipped to handle insurgents and protect themselves!

    It pays to do a little research before you speak, harvard dips**t!

    "The Second Amendment of the Constitution stipulates, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Guns were deemed legal not to secure personal liberties, but to provide for the state’s collective defense. Yet America no longer maintains statewide militias connected to the federal government; rather, we depend upon a standing army for defense."

    what bull ****!!

    1.7 percent?! I find that to be very suspect. In my limited exposure to gun owners over the last few years I havent met ONE who didnt own a so called "AW". Smells like some cooking is going on.

    According to one estimate, assault weapons may be involved in up to 7 percent of homicides.

    It's not even 7%. You know it, I know it, we all know it.
    But we'll be generous and give you your 7%. Fair?
    So...You plan on banning something based on a fluid, ever changing description to reduce "homicides" by 7%?
    Makes sense

    I would love to know what risk is involved?

    Here's some knowledge for you all...

    Full auto trigger groups are SAFER than commercial semi auto trigger groups. Disagree? Go look up how a full auto AK 47 trigger group works. You won't be able to fire the gun and cause an out of battery explosion with a full auto group if the bolts not fully closed. You can do that with a civillian gun. FALs are the same way. The auto sear (rightfully refered to as a safety sear) locks the hammer back until the bolt closes in semi and full auto operation. Sorry AR 15 fans, the safety sear doesn't do its job in semi-auto!

    SVT-40's have a SAFETY SEAR. In the AVT-40 (full auto SVT-40) the safety sear serves the same purpose as the auto sear in guns like the AK, AR, and FAL. Yet the SVT-40 can ONLY fire when the bolt is fully closed and in battery, and the hammer cannot follow the bolt. Sounds much safer to me than having a hammer that can be dropped while the bolt is open.

    SKS's are an odd case. They have what functions as a "safety sear" to keep the trigger from working if the bolt is not in battery, but have the worst safety in the world, and a hammer that if improperly tuned can drop if the gun is hit the right way even while the safety is on.

    So yeah, let's "take that risk" and make guns safer to use. I don't care if a gun goes full auto or not, but I'd really love to have a safety sear in my guns to make my gun safer to use. All guns above (minus the AR 15) BENEFIT from having full auto parts while firing semi automatically.

    I love the last paragraph, in effect: Yeah, it won't work, but it's the right thing to do.

    This is our next generation of leaders and law makers.

    I think it's time.
