    52% of Americans favor major restrictions on guns or making all guns illegal, according to a CNN/ORC poll.


    The poll was taken December 17-18, just days after a gunman killed 27 people, including 20 children, in Newtown, Connecticut.


    53% of people polled also say they believe attacks will continue regardless of any action taken.

    If cops in England don't carry guns, how do they shoot the bad guys?

    "They try not too."

    There's no legit reason to own a semi-automatic assault rifle. It serves no purpose. You don't hunt with it. It's overkill on home safety. You're not going to overthrow the government. It's all BS.

    You're gonna need a machine gun to even stand a chance against the government. That and a tank. A couple of missiles. And a drone.

    Banning assault rifles won't stop this kind of thing from happening again.

    I disagree with the first assertion for a number of reasons, and the North Vietnamese might disagree with the second part.

    my leading theory is that liberals feel helpless against evil, and so rail against things they know they can't effect, in order to feel better about themselves, and demonize their opponents

    it's all about feelings with libs

    The Vietnamese were able to defend their country against the occupation of American forces because of a number of reasons. One of them being that they were used to being dug in and living in holes from fighting occupation for literally hundreds of years.

    The second reason is the way the American government fought the war. Instead of taking ground and pushing them out, it was a war of attrition. We were supposed to break their spirit.

    If you really want to take on the US military from the inside of the US, you better have some damn good defenses and a strong militia.

    People that feel the need to own a semi-automatic rifle to defend themselves and their home is living in a tortured alter reality. They are the ones living in fear. You live in fear MathewT because you're afraid to go to hell.
