2. Any gun that fires any number of shots can be used for killing people. Similarly, any gun capable of being used to hunt can be used to kill people.


Yep, how many people can you kill with 3 round shotgun vs say an AR-15 in 10 minutes? When you buy an AR-15 you're not buying it to hunt with, you're buying it because it's a lethal human killing weapon with a badass looking profile.


Sadly, it's the bolded bit which most makes you scared of the weapon though. There are plenty of quite lethal weapons which don't have badass looking profiles, but no proposed "assault weapon ban" will affect them. Hence, why they're useless.

3. The purpose of the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with hunting anyway.


You have no idea how much I don't give a @#$% about your 2nd amendment. It's one of the most retarded excuses for retarded behaviour I've ever seen.


Given that we're talking about legislative action in the US, your opinion of the 2nd amendment is somewhat trumped by its actual importance in US law.

Quote:
The purpose of the 2nd amendment was to allow militias to maintain firearms in defence of their communities in the event that government got out of control and started oppressing the people.


Almost correct. The purpose of the 2nd amendment was to ensure that all citizens could freely keep and bear their own arms, so that they could form into such militias in time of need. You do realize that if you're not allowed to have weapons until after you form into a militia, it's kinda too late, right?

Quote:
1. Which militia are you a part of?


None. But that's not a prerequisite.

2. Do you seriously think a bunch of hicks with guns have even the slightest of chances against the US military?


Not the point. Or, more correctly, it's a great point for having less restrictions on private firearms rather than more. I'm sure that's not where you were going with this though.

Quote:
3. Is it even a concern in modern times?


It's always "modern times". Think about it.

Quote:
How oppressed do you really think you're going to be living in the US? People can read now, guns are no longer necessary to maintain your freedom, get over it.


Excuse me. What was the literacy rate in 1930s Germany? Is this seriously your argument? That there's some kind of magic that prevents governments in "modern times" from oppressing their citizens? How incredibly naive you are.
