The debate over assault weapons

Supposedly, law-abiding gunowners are the status quo.

I don't think so. I've started using the phrase "peaceful gun owners" because we have tens of millions of cannabis users in this country. Any of them who own or hold a gun are breaking the law.

Included in that group would be my own father. With my help, he used cannabis oil to relieve symptoms of his bone cancer near the end of his life. Yes, he owned a gun and it was in the house at the time. That's an unlawful gun owner. Like tens of millions of other gun owners. I don't regret my participation in that crime one bit.

BTW Jeffie, one AW round vaporized a bicep. Is that ludicrous, or what? It seems to indicate that AW wounds are more nasty than other types of gunshot injuries.

Heh. Non-readers are always funny.

What does the AW ban endorsed by hundreds of congresscritters say again?

The term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means any of the following, regardless of country of manufacture or caliber of ammunition accepted:

That's why this battlefield .22 is an assault weapon:

Let's play race plus gunz. Is this not  the thread you used (every day) to trot out the (alleged) gangsta shootings, from the Gungrabby Archives, etc?

You terrorized the population, with daily tales of daily drive-bys, on this thread? What were you thinking? No wonder armed black men are targeted by police, and by the Boothies.

No, those idiots seem to think pointing guns at other people is OK as long as you mount a flashlight on the gun. That's very far from my own specs. Seems kinda immature and volatile to me. How about you?

Now, getting back to the subject you raised before this deflection,

It’s nice to see reasonable gun control laws upheld.  Much more is needed.

https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article256224537.html

 

The panel of judges on Tuesday noted that, in the past half-century, large-capacity magazines have been used in about three-quarters of gun massacres with 10 or more deaths and in 100% of gun massacres with 20 or more deaths. Furthermore, the judges wrote, more than twice as many people have been killed or injured in mass shootings that involved a large-capacity magazine as compared with mass shootings that involved a smaller-capacity magazine. “California’s ban on large-capacity magazines imposes only a minimal burden on the exercise of the Second Amendment right. The law has no effect whatsoever on which firearms may be owned; as far as the challenged statute is concerned, anyone may own any firearm at all. Owners of firearms also may possess as many firearms, bullets, and magazines as they choose,” the court wrote in its opinion, spearheaded by Judge Susan P Graber.

Oh deer. Tom will be so upset. He'll probably pick up stakes and move to Florida.

There's a thread where that case is under discussion, so I commented there.

But since you're here, I'm still wondering what point you were trying to make with this post?

On 9/18/2020 at 12:32 PM, Olsonist said:

It also absolves individuals of the LIABILITY FOR USE by others. So if your roommate steals your keys and bypasses your 'secure gun storage' and uses your gun to holdup a liquor store, you're totally good. But if your roommate steals your keys and runs over a little old lady with your car, well that's what you have liability insurance for.

Seems to me to have something to do with gun owners' responsibility for the actions of criminals, but I'm not quite sure what the overall point is. Please explain.

Your ignorance is showing again. Or still. Not sure which.

Fully automatic weapons are only for the rich ever since Saint Ronald closed the registry in 1986.

But he didn't close it "Canadian style," where the guns are confiscated once the registry is closed.

You just can't register any MORE, but the couple hundred thousand of them already out there in 1986 are grandfathered in and can be owned, sold, and bought (by rich people only due to the restricted supply, but there's nothing racist or regressive or troubling about that.)

But at least you managed to find common ground with Trump.

Big Temporary is not so big now. The stream of Benitez ' opinions is, simply put, poorly developed, and not very mature, IMO.

Bonta noted that the court's majority said every mass shooting with 20 or more deaths in the last 50 years involved large-capacity magazines, as did about three-quarters of those with 10 or more deaths. More than twice as many people were killed or injured in mass shootings with high-capacity magazines than those with less firepower, the court said.

(…)

Gun groups estimated that more than a million high-capacity magazines may have legally flooded into California during a one-week window before Benitez stayed his ruling pending appeal. The three-judge 9th Circuit panel upheld Benitez’s ruling and kept the stay in place.

(...) 

Benitez also barred the state from enforcing a voter-approved law that would have prohibited gun owners from possessing magazines holding more than 10 bullets. The practical impact was that those who already possessed weapons with such magazines would have had to turn them in.

Stopping the ongoing catastrophe of private machine gun ownership could get interesting.

I thought there were only a few hundred thousand of them but was wrong:

Quote

Through May of 2019, there are 699,977 registered machine guns in the U.S.

Prices are wildly varied but my guess at an average is $10k or so. These people have lawyers and will not politely accept the usual practice of declaring their ownership of their property a public nuisance and demanding it be surrendered.

They're going to want to go the Aussie/Canadian way and get paid.

Let's see: 700,000 guns times 10k each. Govt size numbers wreck my brain before the second cup is finished. It's a big number.

Looks like a "well regulated militia" to me. They are ALMOST mostly in step.  Their marching could be a bit more "regulated" to my eye - but close enough for gov't work.

I gotta laugh every time someone suggest they just casually go door to door in America and ask for all their guns or that we'll just drive by and throw them in a pile..... 

 

Gun confiscation team unloads at the top of the street:

"Tom, you got house 456, go take their guns 'cause according to records they have 6 AR-15s, 3 AK-47s, a .308, a 30-06, a 50 cal, 5 shot guns and more pistols than I can name. You got that, right?"

I would laugh if I saw that suggestion too, but have never seen it. Maybe you can share the source of laughter?

What really happens is, a registry is closed and continued possession of anything unregistered will get you a felony.

Predictably, gun owners don't buy the argument that we're responsible for the actions of criminals and choose to keep the guns and risk the felony. That's why CT has scores of thousands of felons with assault weapons right now, vastly outnumbering their prison population.

Battlefield .22's and Self Defense
 

Quote

 

...

The Long Rifle (“LR”) .22 rimfire round, the most common today, effectively tripled the power of the original .22 Short. As self-contained ammunition advanced, more powerful rounds were developed that had the .22 rimfire’s quick loading advantages, but the .22 LR remained a popular choice for self-defense. A wide-range of small and affordable handguns were available in the caliber and in many rural homesteads, a .22-cal. rifle served triple duty by putting meat on the table, eliminating varmints and dissuading two-legged predators.

The .22 LR has found modern military and law-enforcement applications, especially where noise or over penetration are a consideration. The quietness of the round when suppressed meant it was used by intelligence agencies, like the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and British Special Operations Executive (SOE) during World War II. Long-range U.S. bomber crews in the same conflict were issued Stevens 22-410 rifle and shotgun combination guns as survival weapons. Full metal jacketed ammunition was supplied to the flyers, just in case they had to use the .22 LR for defensive purposes.

Military and law enforcement use of .22 LRs continued after the war. U-2 pilots carried a suppressed High Standard .22-cal. pistol. In the 1970s, the British Army issued .22-cal. Walther PPs (designated the L66A1) to their soldiers in Northern Ireland for self-defense while off-duty. The Israelis have used the .22 LR in several law enforcement and military applications. Their air marshals famously carried Beretta Model 71s in .22 LR and successfully used them in several incidents against heavily-armed terrorists attempting to hijack an airliner. The Israelis also modified a version of the ArmaLite AR-7 survival rifle into a “personal defense weapon” for their F4 Phantom pilots.

...

 

Definitely suitable militia weapons and thus deserving of the highest level of second amendment protection, at least for readers of the entire second amendment.

Question for the gun guys, a bit off topic, apologies ...

Cleaning up, tossing crap, came across a couple boxes of centerfire 38 automatic ammo. No need for it, it was my dad's handgun, which was then stolen, and I am not a handgun guy. I obviously don't want to throw away live rounds, so I ask several of my friends if anyone can use it. Nada. Incredibly, not one of my friends owns a .38, it's all 9mm and bigger.

So the question ... what happened to the 38? When I was a kid it seemed to be the most common size, with every cop and paranoid homeowner an owner. Why did the 38 seem to go the way the dodo?

I dunno, there is no longer a gun for it, it's just the ammo.

I still have two rifles, (including a Dragoon similar to the one that Simo Hayha repelled the Soviets in the Winter War) but I don't keep ammo for them in the house for safety. I'm not really a gun guy ... given the choice between guns or dirt bikes/snowmobiles/skateboards, the guns just don't interest us too much here.

I took some flood damaged ammo to the sheriff's office here. Except the lady behind the bulletproof glass in the actual office wouldn't let me just leave it there. She had to call a cop off the road to come get it. So I wound up hanging around in the parking lot for half an hour before handing over the ammo. Waste of my time and his and tax money. Next time I think I'll just toss it in a fire.

What does it say on the box ? ( IE 380ACP ?)

You can simply pull the bullets, and dump  the powder in your yard.

Good idea, I guess I could save the powder for the next time there is no fire danger, and make some homemade firework fountains with aluminum shavings.

They likely just didn't want to take responsibility for it Normy ... kinda like a homeless person or an old dog with one eye.

I like Mike's idea ... when I was a kid I made my own black power for homebrew fireworks. It wasn't great quality, but I had a lot of fun with it.

After you pull the bullets & save the powder , remember the primers.

 I put a foamy earplug into a 9mm case (no powder) as an experimental         "nerf boolitt "  once, and aimed it at the garage door. 

WOW !! ,  _nearly_ as loud as my 115gr load.

My wife came out and chewed my ass.

Heh. You deserved it. My dad used primer-only .22 rounds to kill squirrels that were after his fruit trees. There was a hawk that knew about this policy and would follow him around, waiting.

My Beeman air rifle has fiber cleaning pellets. You stuff about 5 of them into the barrel and fire to give it a final wipe after cleaning. They weigh almost nothing and have lots of wind resistance, so will only fly a short distance and won't hit anything with much force.

Not wanting to clean up the fiber pellets, I decided to contain them by shooting at the vinyl siding on my house. Went right through, now a duct tape patch imprisons the pellets.

I am confident that Tom would use masking tape that would match the color of his siding.

It was silver duct tape over grey siding, so pretty close. It eventually became threadbare and I put a piece of "100 mph tape" on. Aluminum, but apparently not as good as the stuff my dad used to use to repair his car. Checking in this morning, I see that the metal has peeled and it's just clear plastic now. Time to go back to the silver duct tape. Thanks for the reminder.

Underneath the plastic, the whole place is sheathed in now-extinct Dade County hard pine. This old house is worth a lot more in pieces but I like it this way.

Hey, at least Joe is willing to call me "white" trash, not the immature and volatile kind.

Well, the actual cartoon in play is some guy, blasting away at his building's Dade Pine vinyl siding, like a jackass, with one his firearm toys, then resorting to duct tape as a repair... then tossing out some signature race-baiting. YMMV. @Pertinacious Tom

I'm a bit confused why they would issue a suppressed pistol to U2 drivers.

 

Because if they ejected, a U2 pilot most likely would be in territory he/she wasn't supposed to be in or anywhere near.  And not somewhere that would be easy to send a rescue helo to come get them, unlike a "normal" combat zone.  Think North Korea, Russia, China, etc.  

So they would be expected to evade capture for a significant amount of time on the ground.  So having a suppressed pistol makes sense in that context if you think about it.  You might need to pop that one soldier that got too close to your hidey hole without alerting his buddies for miles.  You might also use it to hunt rabbits and squirrels and such to eat - again without alerting the countryside.  Lots good of reasons for it.

Mmmmm...raw squirrel. So.....tasty!

I'd be a lot less grossed out just throwing down some earthworms myself, and the squirrel wouldn't get the living shit blown out of it.

But the most important thing is to remember to not eat fuzzy caterpillars

Thanks, I guess that makes sense. 

 I'm aware of U2 drivers (Gary Powers) getting shot down over Russia.

, and Major Rudolf Anderson killed over Cuba.

China claims five from Taiwan. 

, so a followup question would be, 

 ? why not sup22 for the sled drivers too ?

Time to go back to the silver duct tape. Thanks for the reminder

Do us all a favor, Tom ?  Find a sharpie marker the same shade of gray as your siding and color the silver tape to match.  

It will make Joe feel better.
