I think the majority of those countries just have weapons(semi-automatic) banned in general.

And there’s no rioting in the streets about it.

It’s probably hard for them to sympathize let alone riot about something they’ve never had(or don’t have anymore) the luxury/responsibility of having.

I guess. And, I guess my whole point was that I don’t think we need to take guns away from people who have them, I grew up in Iowa and all my uncles/cousins went hunting and it was a way of life for us. I just have never seen/heard a sound argument for why assault weapons need to be out in the public. Still waiting for that.

Protection from threats both foreign & domestic. The issue as far as weapon boils down to rate of fire (i.e. bolt action, semi-automatic, & automatic(which is illegal)) caliber, & round capacity. Unfortunately there are different makes & models of guns that aren’t necessarily rifles that share those different traits/options. Some of the bills introduced over the years have garnered criticism because of the vague definitions written in them & potentially open up somewhat of a slippery slope on how they’re interpreted which is why I suppose people get so upset on both sides. This is why I hate lawyers & politicians.

So… if someone with an automatic weapon opens fire, someone else with an automatic weapon should fire back. Yeah, that’s safe for everyone around them.

I mean automatic weapons are illegal already in the 1st place but yes to answer your question if it just so happens that someone with an automatic weapon started shooting people and someone else who just so happened to also have an automatic weapon was able to try and stop them then yes so be it. The difference is the person who is trying to stop the shooter isn’t trying to kill everyone.

It’s a good point, since no one wants to nail down what an “assault rifle” or a “military style” weapon is, it pretty much can describe any firearm.

On that “no mass shootings in 2019” list, I see the Swiss flag. That implies that guns can’t be the problem as the Swiss have tons of guns.

The Swiss gun ownership is chalked up to their militia system, and with the Draft still technically active (and questions of what the US militia is), shouldn’t at least all who have registered for the Draft be able to obtain “Assault Rifles” to have familiarity in the event that we start the draft lotto up again?

Which reminds me of the famed Admiral Yamamoto quote about there being a rifle behind every blade of grass in the USA. If that were true anywhere in the USA, I thought it would be in Texas; Texans have a Senator who made a video of himself trying to use his “Assault Rifle” to fry bacon.
