    Which is to say it stopped no crimes, stopped no violence, and may have aided crimes ( it was hacked multiple times and criminals are suspected to have used that info to steal guns from registered owners) and it cost in the high millions every year while doing nothing.
    I harrasses gun owners, Provides movement jobs and gives the illusion of doing something so it doesn't matter if there is no real benefit

    I have yet to hear an rational explanation of how it makes anyone safer

    One is a Semi-auto hunting rifle, the other is a standard shotgun fitted with a pistol grip (the pistol grip magically makes it an assault weapon to congress and other people who are completely clueless)

    Some crazy "Neo-Mayan" groups have claimed that this was the 2012 apocalypse and the change in views in gun ownership is what was predicted. Utter Bullcrap and so disrespectiful!

    They're both Remington 750 semi auto rifles.


    EDIT: But you grasped the point of the comparison, looks can be deceiving, and laws have to be descriptive.

    Was the point that a self-proclaimed gun expert who keeps lecturing others on their ignorance can't tell the difference between a rifle and a shotgun?

    So that would make the 'conservative' agenda:

    "As long as it's not my kids, or my gun, I don't give a fuck."

    It's pithy and looks good on a T-shirt.
    Or maybe you're talking out your arse and building a strawman version of your adversary to justify an unwillingness to consider any option and just let things continue as they are.
    Seriously, you guys should just change the country's motto to "Screw You, Buddy, I Got Mine" and just quit pretending otherwise.

    No, what I consider a happy medium would be repellent to you.

    Others, it would seem, feel differently, including your President and increasing numbers of your politicians.

    Where (other than your ass) do you get your numbers?

    Edit: I see there is a CNN poll from August (before Newton) that agrees with you.

    But a solid majority of US citizens is in favor of more restrictions on gun ownership now.
