    I voted for fine as they currently stand, although I would be fine with an "assault weapons" ban.

    Not necessarily. There are tons of companies that make semi-auto shotguns for the purposes of hunting and shooting sports.

    Most handguns are semi as well.

    Side question ...

    Just what IS an "assault weapon" - seriously?

    Is it a machine gun?
    Is it a semi-automatic rifle?

    Back in the late 19th/early 20th Centuries it was a lever action rifle. In 50 years, it might be a laser.

    I think its tehnically a machine gun which is why I used the quotation marks. For the purposes of that ban though, I think its a semi-auto rifle. Im OK with that.

    I didn't vote because I honestly don't know. I've always had a pretty broad reading of the 2nd amendment but that's changing now. I don't know where I'll finally come down on it.

    ALL semi-auto rifles?

    For example, I own a Ruger 10/22. It looks like this one:



    It's a .22 caliber rim-fire.


    Or, were you just referring to AR-15 style rifles that look like military rifles?





    ... Is it a question of the rifle's caliber? .22 rimfire vs. centerfires like the .223 or .556 for example?

    Or, is it just the fact that the rifle chambers the next round of ammunition for you?

    That's a little trickier, I'll have to gather my thoughts on it. I know combat shotguns are semi-automatic. I didn't know they had made them for hunting, too. That seems like overkill to me, but I'm no hunter so I can't really comment...

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

    Yeah, even in Big Buck Hunter they don't have those. Real life shouldn't be easier than the video game.
