    Go on record: YOUR gun control position.

    I've been seeing a lot of vastly differing opinions lately.

    I'm curious where everyone here stands on gun control in America.

    THIS IS A PUBLIC POLL. Go on record.

    I don't have a problem with the laws we currently have on the books.

    Further restrictions are, IMO, ridiculous knee jerk reactions to correcting the wrong problem in our society today.

    I see no need for anyone to own anything other than pistols, hunting rifles, and shot guns. I've read/listened to several former military and law enforcement officials insist that a shotgun is the best weapon for self defense. With that in mind, I voted for "Bolt/pump/lever action ok, no semi-autos." Unless you're Scarface and need to defend your mountain of cocaine from an incoming army of drug-dealers, I simply can't fathom when you'd need more firepower than a shotgun to protect your family...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Scarface used automatic (select fire) weapons. Semi-auto means, for each pull of the trigger one projectile is fired (though the gun does cycle the next round of ammunition into the chamber)


    Edit: Just meant as a clarification of terms.

    Honestly, I was just making a joke by bringing up Scarface. But the point is valid. Unless you're expecting to be ambushed by a group of armed men, why would you need anything other than a shotgun? And if you're expecting to get ambushed by a group of armed men, chances are you are doing something in your life that you really should reconsider...

    So basically youre against free enterprise and capitalism? Youre basically cutting Scarface's means to operate his business out from under him.

    Wasn't Scarface killed by a shotgun anyways? That supremely confident creepy guy in sunglasses just walked calmly behind him and blasted his ass...

    Alright. Are semi-auto shotguns ok, or just pump/lever shotguns?

    Actually hadn't thought about. Good point, my friend. Whenever I think about a semi-automatic weapon, I think of rifles. Would I be correct in assuming that combat shotguns are the ones that tend to be semi-automatic...?
