Anyone calling these guns "military style rifles" or "assault weapons" needs to learn what a assault rifle is!These guns are not automatic and do not have a 3 round burst option.They are the same as most other rifles just look different

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Pardon me,i just noticed your location is illinois barry land makes sense now.Hows barry's strict laws up there working out?I believe the past year chicago was one of the top places for gun violence in the world.Detroit strict gun laws crime everywhere.It is your right to not have them if you choose though.

How about you teach kids about the value of human life before you give them the means to take it?

They are fun. I don't go to the shooting range out of a sense of duty. I go for fun. In the right settings under the proper supervision there is nothing wrong with this. It'll teach proper handling and respect for the arm.

Yes, there's normal shooting ranges in most countries where strict fire control is maintained at all times, then there's these kinds of ranges in the U.S.A.



Actually I think I've fired most of those weapons in the vid, except only in short bursts. Emptying out a 100 round drum magazine must be fun but you'd never hit anything. Still, the Marshal Tucker soundtrack fits the setting. Southern Rock!


p.s. I'd be dammed if I'd Iet a 5 year old blast away with an UZI, where the hell is the range officer?

OP what is your point here? If you are trying to say that teaching kids about guns is bad thing, you truly would be a gigantic idiot.

If that would be the motivation I would have no problem with it. And if you cannot find the problem that must be because you failed to read the article, where any discussion would become fruitless.

Companies promoting their products through sporting competitions. Hmm, how unheard of.

yep, companies are known to do that, but we do not have guns advertised here. We just have adverts promoting things to keep you alive. :P  saying that, we do have hunters here too, but you see, I am anti hunting for sport, if people are hunting for food, then I  go for that, but do not agree with taking little johnny out for a Sunday to shoot deer as a good way of target practice.
I DO know that not all the sports include killing animals, I am fine with that, its just the ones which do.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

More people are killed by baseball bats than guns every year in the USA, do you feel the need to do the same before you give a kid a ball, bat, and glove?

You have gun ads in sporting and hunting magazines just like we do. Really, if you are going to make claims at least make sure they are factual.
