stop with the left wing talking points..
it's harder to buy and then take home the same day at guns shows then it is to buy one at a gun store....in order to buy a gun at a gun show you must fill out 5 pages of paperwork....which includes finger prints..and then that paperwork goes to the ATF for background checks
those are covered in those 5 pages...
after your background check is done that dealer must send your purchase to a federal license fire arms dealer near you..who then depending on the state you live in will do another background check before you get your guns...this takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks.
fully automatic weapons are banned..semi automatic is what is not banned..fully auto means you just have to pull trigger once to fire all bullets..the reason the Las Vegas shooter had to use a bump stock.. a semi auto..means you have to pull once for every bullet...there is no one alive today that could fire "hundreds" of bullets pulling the trigger one at a time...
I am a damn good shot with my guns...but I am deadly with my compound bow..I know I could take out at least 30 people a minute with it and no one would see or hear those arrows coming.
Chicago has very strict gun laws hasn't helped them now has it 1500 people shot just this year.
re; my BIB
What in the name of sanity is the reason behind owning those weapons..?
OK, so a long time ago I stopped attempting to reason with insane Americans who think the ownership of lethal firearms is a normal thing to do. Only a lunatic would ever dream of owning them in the first place. To turn that lunacy into reality takes mental illness to another level.
I know it would be impossible to reason with you on the question of 'why' so I won't try.
But now it's bows and arrows..?? A form of medieval weaponry that is at best uncertain of accuracy due to having to fire in an arc rather than straight line of aim, meaning innocent people are just as likely to be injured or killed as the intended target.
The sickest thing of all is that the way you write you seem to revel in the thought that you can use this as some sort of stealth weapon and not only that, but you boast that you have practised with it sufficiently to have achieved a rate of fire of one arrow every two seconds.
Perhaps in your wildest fantasies you think you're Legolas Greenleaf and you exist in some sort of Lord of the Rings dreamworld. Wake up call: Such individuals and such a rate of fire exist only in fantasy literature.
The very best rate of fire that I could find any reference to online is between 3- 5 seconds and that is considered an extremely fast rate that most olympic archers don't even try to achieve. They get two minutes to fire three arrows and still don't achieve 100% accuracy. To think you can "take out" 30 people, with absolute accuracy, in one minute is beyond ridiculous
You talk of 'taking people out'. What the hell sort of mentality is that..? Such a blithe disregard for life indicates a level of mental illness that should see you confined to an institute for the criminally insane.
If you are serious and genuine in your post, then not only are you a wild fantasist, but you need help. Quickly. If I thought it would do any good I would forward your message to the FBI in the hope they would track you down and take your weapons away. But such is the loss of confidence that the American law enforcement agencies have the necessary legal powers to do that, that I despair of even trying.
The only thing that is certain in America is that the next mass killing will not be very long in coming. The only things in doubt are where it will happen and how high the body count will be.
You people are bloody insane.
*The firing sequence of Nock, Draw, Aim, Loose....not forgetting that a new arrow has to be taken either from a quiver or from the ground after each firing will take more than two seconds and even then, the strain of the repetitive draw on the shoulders and the stress on the bow fingers will progressively reduce the rate of fire the longer you go.
30 rounds a minute my arse.
