    Oh God, I didn't think it would happen this soon.

    I've been seeing this pop up everywhere since the start of the year, and it scares the **** out of me.

    Thoughts?

    That is complete and utter bullshit. If it is passed, I will immediately move out of this country. All I have to say is 2nd Amendment, and they are definitely trying to infringe upon it.

    If you ever wonder why I have such a distaste for liberals, Exhibit A is in the above post.

    I personally don't like guns, and there's too many trigger-happy idiots running around and making bad choices with them. Maybe I got ahead of myself when I thought all guns should be banned, but.. it would bring the murder count down. Oh, and people would be less likely to rob a store, bank or other places with a knife or when empty-handed.

    Wow...

    Laws like this are stupid; most guns that are used to commit crimes are blackmarket guns anyways.

    Well, it doesn't look like an all-out gun ban (though its not that bad actually, living in a country where I don't have to worry too much about guns. Instead, we have knife crime).

    Not sure why those specific guns. I understand the right to bear arms, but at the same time, there should be a limit. People simply disagree where that limit should be (and rightfully so, there's a fine line between defense and attack when it comes to lethal weapons, one that can easily be broken without realisation).

    :thumbsup:

    To those whining about not being able to use their precious guns anymore, think of this way: your country's abnormally high murder rate (compared to other first-world countries) will go down.

    Surely you're not ignorant enough to think there's a single variable in the crime rate equation.

    I was okay with the assault rifle ban, but this is going overboard.

    Whoever said that a locked government is bad was wrong.

    As much as I like this idea, USA will never be able to ban guns before Canada does. We can only hope for the day that guns are not needed. For all of you who talk about the 2nd amendment, it is time for a change, stop listening to everything from centuries ago.

    Obviously more guns means more lives lost. I'm tired of people spewing anti-liberal sentiments because the liberal public would like to see gun control. I'm actually a proponent of gun control, but I don't mind people having guns. I mind it being so easy to acquire them, and the extent to which they can be acquired. If someone feels the need to have one for protection, that is their right, but guns are so easy to obtain it creates massive problems. You can't ignore the amount of gun-crimes there are by people who probably and in many cases legally should not be in possession of a gun. I think that if this ban is the only way to handle these aformentioned "trigger happy idiots" then the people that do use guns responsibly will have to bite the bullet (pun intended)

    I love when conservatives threaten to move. Where in the bloody hell could a conservative American move that would satisfy them, assuming they'd like to stay in a first world nation?

    NOWHERE, which is why America needs to stay conservative like. Liberals can move to Canada, there's enough icy wasteland for all of them.

    And I'm most likely going to end up going to England. :|

    You DO know almost all guns used in crimes are blackmarketed, yes?

    Exactly, nowhere. So just shut up and love Nancy Pelosi. Nobody else would ever want you, anyway.

    Best post ever.

    I love all of those "I'm going to move if Obama gets elected" conservatives who are sitting here right now.

    Well that was a bit harsh. :/

    There's a few countries that would welcome the tax dollars, I'd imagine.

    Worst post ever.

    Stating the same thing Celeste just said two posts again does not get you any points.

    Aw come on, you'll enjoy it in the UK with our ban on guns, lack of death penalty, and funding for stem cell research.

    I can give up my guns, I can stand the lack of a death penalty, I'll kill all the embryos in the world, but I will moan every day about people getting breast implants and teeth whitenings on NHS.

    Edit: And you didn't rant about the difference in England and Britain. xD
