Ban Semi-automatic Weapons...

House Democrats back new ban on semi-automatic weapons:

<https://hotair.com/archives/2018/02/26/house-democrats-back-ban-semi-automatic-weapons/

A semi-automatic weapon fires one shot every time the trigger is
pulled. An automatic weapon fires continually until the trigger is
released.

Seems to me that virtually EVERY modern day HANDGUN is
"semi-automatic", n'est-il pas si?  Even an old-style revolver is
semi-automatic in that sense.

Likewise an AR-15... requires a trigger-pull per firing.  IT IS NOT
"automatic".

So the Dems really want to ban all guns??

Automatic weapons are, by current law, restricted to the military and
certain police forces... illegal for ordinary ownership.

Reminding the snarky pansy from the Peoples Republic of Massa2shits...
this is my target shoot at 10 yards...

Two pistols tried out:  Glock 9mm and an S&W (caliber I don't
remember, this was 2012).

<https://www.yelp.com/biz/rio-salado-sportsmans-club-mesa

I am untrained... this was my first pistol shoot in close to 45 years.
(Went with my oldest son to try out his new AR-15 >:-} (*)

I would expect trained police officers to be able to at least distract
a shooter and minimize deaths... instead they were COWARDS.

Seems we should ban semi-automatic COWARDS ;-)

(*) A MAGNIFICENT WEAPON by the way.  Bulls-eyes at 300 yards... no
sweat!  NOT very good at close range like a pistol... it would take
too much side-to-side movement, slowing you down... so much for the
bull-shit from the pansy crowd.

I remember when I lived in Phoenix in 1985 I used to go to the desert  
shooting. I had a 32 semi then. There were these signs that said, don't  
shoot the signs. Well, other than, red flag before bull, I am unable to  
elucidate any further.

Yes, That used to be a problem.  But it's been quite some time since
I've seen a highway sign with a bullet hole in it.  Maybe we're more
grownup now?

Not quite true.  My BIL had a Thompson sub machine gun.  And the gun range near by in PA. also have some sub machine guns  There is a license fee however .  I think it is $500 a year.

At one time Texas solved that problem by attaching small alumimum sheets attached to the sign.  Giving the public some thing to shoot at which was not expensive to replace.   |

I stand corrected.  I had forgotten that my uncle, Darl Godwin, he of
20 years Navy, 20 years Army, then Sheriff of Killeen, Texas, had a
Thompson submachine gun.

He let me fire it when I was perhaps 12 years old.  It spun me around,
causing my uncle to have to run a circle to escape it.  He thought it
funny.  Scared the crap out of me :-(

using my uncle to have to run a circle to escape it. "

I recall the news of someone doing that and the kid could not handle it and
 the weapon went up and shot the guy who gave the kid it to shoot.  

He got a Darwin award with that.  

That is another thing about the uselessness of a full auto in most situatio
ns, because of the recoil it is very hard to aim with any degree of accurac
y. In war where there is a whole group of enemy soldiers in front of you, y
es. But anywhere else a semi auto would be better.

My father never had any formal gun training, but when he first let me shoot a .380 colt semiautomatic,  there was only one cartridge in the gun.  

For that matter I never had any formal gun training either and neither has my son or my grandson.

Same here, though one might argue that the standard (when I was a
youth) Boy Scout Camp rifle shooting ranges _was_ "formal training":

Both one-week and two-week camp sessions had DAILY trips to the range.

*** Had I said "when I was a yoot" how many would have recognized
where that came from ?:-)

"civilians" can buy a full auto gun, you have to find a gun that was legall
y registered before 1986 so it transferable, then get it transferred with N
FA which takes about a year and $500. I believe less than 200000 such guns  
ever existed so you are looking at tens of thousands $ for transferable mac
hine a gun

registered dealers and manufactures can have "samples" of full auto guns th
at  
is what the gun ranges do

That would be the renewal, IIRC the original application is very expensive.

Re: Ban Semi-automatic Weapons...
I might be wrong about it costing ten grand, unless that includes those background checks and all the other shit.

it is semiautomatic but not fully automatic or burst

and you can get a select fire AR-15 but it'll be +30 years old, cost  
+$15000 and it'll take a year for NFA to approve that you can get it
