    Makes a whole lot of sense. See I understand I can't buy a handgun of my own because handguns are easier to conceal. Though it is crazy that I can't rent one to use for like an hour or so at a range? It's not like I could get away with stealing it.

    End rant

    PS-you know how you can rent those public storage boxes? Woul I be allowed to keep guns I legally own in there?
    If you lived in Philly you'd feel differently about that law.

    So in America, all you have to be is 18 years old or 21 years old to purchase a rifle/shotgun/handgun? No licenses or anything? Wtf, and you're crying about it? Come to Canada.

    Well, you can't be a felon, and there's a few other requirements, and you generally have to pass a background check.

    Well understandably thats a given. What are the other requirements? In Canada, you have to pass the gun licence test and then have your name registered in that database and to purchase assault rifles is an even stringent requirement, requiring another licence I think. So an average joe can purchase an assault rifle or any firearm easily in the US?

    A lot of that depends on what state your in, but we generally restrict automatic weapons.
    We're a lot less stringent about semi- to fully- automatic converter kits, though.

    Not easily no, it just doesn't require a permit.

    As for "assault rifles", state legislature tends to be a factor on that one.

    As others have said it depends on what state you are in. The federal assault rifle ban expired under bush so generally speaking semi-auto matics are completely legal. Some states like California ban assault rifles at the state level but most of the states allow what most people would commonly call "assault" rifle. I disagree with that term but that is another debate.

    I live in Tennessee where there are very little additional firearm laws. When I buy a gun I have to fill out the proper paperwork, then the seller sends my info to various law enforcement databases to see if I have a criminal record, and then I get the gun. The background check can take up 20 minutes but usually it is less for me.

    its not rhetoric it was hyperbole used to make a legitimate point, namely that there is way too much protection for the predators. Recently there have been some fairly aggressive challenges to laws like Megans law where by the right of recidivists who have completed their time are challenging the right of authorities to moniter their activities... I mean they did the time they should be left alone right? Key word being recidivists.

    Sorry but I would love to see how much some of these and other predators think twice knowing that an adult with a firearm might end their days is they act according to their desires.... but it won't happen here in kalifornia:phil2:

    First off your an idiot. Second there are more stringent laws on firearms in California but you can own guns and if you have a legitimate reason to do so you can get a permit to carry a concealed firearm, at least in San Bernardino you can. Is this right? Is it wrong? Well thats up to the voters. None of this however has ANYTHING to do with pedophiles which seems to be the underlying theme in your argument.
