Are you for banning semi auto rifles

  • There would be more car accidents with deer.

    Semi-automatics should not be banned, because hunters use them for hunting game, food, or for fun. Some use them for self-protection. Also, it would affect states like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and other states that are populated with deer. If they would ban guns, then the deer population would be over rated. There would be more car accidents with deer, less food for people, and no outdoor channels. Most people in rural states hunt for their food.

  • No

    More people are killed by hammers than by semi-automatic weapons. It's the ignorance of the non-gun owning population that thinks these weapons should be banned. The scary thing is is that it won't just stop at a semi-auto ban. Liberal proposals will continue to eat away at our freedoms and people won't realize it until even the most basic freedoms are taken away. An armed population means a free country period. Lastly, what will a gun ban accomplish? Do you really think that it will somehow reduce crime? No. It'll only take rights away from those who follow the laws.

  • No

    The problem is that too many people believe that semi-automatic is automatic. This ban would outlaw most modern guns period, hunting rifles, shotguns, and pistols. They do not spray bullets, and most of the non-gun owning Americans are confused about this. They need to be educated to make an appropriate decision.

  • Positively NO!

    "The climate in this country is changing for the better"! Only a liberal would believe that. Take a look at the numbers above, 80-20 against. Gun ownership is a constitutional right. I know liberals like Obama think that the Constitution is only a suggestion for our country. You really want to know why Obama is taking up this battle? He is steering the people away from all his failures. The economy, fast and furious (selling guns to drug cartels in Mexico!), the murder of four Americans in Libya by terrorists on 9/11 (protestors of a video, right!), and more. All are put out of the public eye by all the tabloid (I mean main stream; CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC) media. Plus those liberal biased print media. The facts are this: Guns save lives! Obama spouts lies!

  • My personal opinion-

    What is the point? I don't believe all semi-automatic weapons should be banned. MOST people exercise their rights lawfully and have safe backgrounds to do so. All it will create is chaos in the public. Does America want to end up like Greece? I don't think so. Does anyone remember when Hitler came to power? The first thing he did was ban all guns.

  • They shouldn't ban semi-automatic weapons.

    The reason why they should not ban semi- automatic weapons is because the government is pathetic for really believing that "criminals" are actually going to follow the laws. In other words, they are not. So why make the that banning law? Its a question that's impossible to answer. Very few evidence to actually make people believe and understand the reasons why the government should ban semi-automatic weapons.

  • It only hurts the victim.

    Cocaine is outlawed but the "bad guys" still get it. If you take away the guns, the bad people will still get them; but the law abiding citizen will not be able to defend themselves, giving the bad people an advantage. With a shotgun, you still have spread and ricochet; semi-automatic weapons are not worse. In gun defense, gun control only hurts the victim...

  • No.

  • No

    I do not believe semi-automatic weapons should be banned. The way that these weapons are regulated does need to change though. I believe every year the gun should have to be reregistered or the owner will face a fine. With harder laws implemented to get them, the use of them illegally should go down. I am not saying that a citizen should not have the right to own one. If they believe they should have one then the regulations provided will not be an issue.

  • No, they should not be banned.

    Semi-automatic weapons already exist in great numbers. It is simply impossible to ban them, as any criminal or crazy person who wishes to acquire one will still be able to do so. The only people who would be unable to acquire one would be law-abiding citizens who wished to own one for protection.
