    The comparison is what a REAL assault weapon is as oppose to a semi-automatic rifle. There's a BIG difference. Semi-auto rifles are the best weapon for home defense period. If you want a real assault weapon then the military is always hiring.

    Some people are just so ****ing terrified of the outside world they think it's about to crash right on top of them. We all know the type... always willing to rant on and on about the minute details of the latest liquor store robbery as they sit on their porch listening to their police scanner. They check their wallets as they walk. They believe any conspiracy theory offered them, no matter how ridiculous. They scoff at anyone who doesn't stock up on bottled water and canned goods.

    People like that deserve your pity, as do their doctors and friends. All it is is a grown up version of being scared of the bogeyman.

    I would want to to have an semi-automatic to handle any home invasion situation, not just ones where the people coming in with those weapons listed. M-4 is for military use only and is illegal under current laws.

    I'm pretty sure the sound of my .30-06 would scare off any would be burglars if I needed to fire it. I hunt with that gun, own it legally and it would certainly do the job if needed. Quality over quantity I always say. I don't need a ridiculous rifle clearly designed to be used in the taking of human life and nothing else just because the TV says gangs are robbing houses as a group, all armed to the teeth.

    As far as arming teachers or hiring cops to stand guard: I'd hate for a period like this right after a tragedy where nervous, untrained teachers or vigilante cops see a kid holding a stick, pretending it's a gun and feel the need to lay him out.

    Interesting....aside from the Secret Service protection Obamas kids get, it looks like the school they go to employs 11 armed guards independent of the Secret Service, and theyre looking to hire one more....

    What would a non gun owner do there? Call the cops and hide in a closet?
