    Or an M60. Same difference.

    I really see no problem with legal restrictions on automatic weapons, ballistic porn like the APS aside.

    If I want to open up full auto, I can just visit my gun/archery guild, which you can see below. Why own when you can just rent.

      That's why I brought up Russia, to counter your narrative about US gun laws, which are some of the most permissive in the world, and I don't see that changing any time soon, regardless of NRA fearmongering.

      I have to keep reminding myself of your political leanings, which are definitely not centrist or typical right wing gun enthusiast.

      I'm pretty conservative when it comes to gun control, mind you. That should explain my own stance. Any law and order type is going to tell you similarly, I think. All things in moderation.

          What does that mean? Conservative? Supporting 2a is not an inherently conservative stance. You generously support pretty much any sort of government control. I have never seen you object to any form of government overreach.

            Supporting the laws on the books, and law and order in general, especially when it comes to weaponry given to the public.

            And I do mean given, as in permitted.

            You know I've never seen a gun burning. But I have seen book burnings in America.

              They're called "buybacks," which is a funny word because it implies that the firearms literally belonged to the government to begin with. Which they didn't.

                No flames are involved in those.

                Regardless, buyback is better than a pawn shop. Serious government dollars for guns. What's the harm?

                Having guns is kind of like having gold or silver. You just have to keep them properly clean and lubricated, which I'm sure you do every night. Every one.

                  A $200 giftcard for grandpa's M1 is not "serious government dollars." The only way to make buybacks profitable for the seller to to make a shitload of home depot pipe shotguns the day before.

                    Way better than a pawn shop, dude.

                        Yeah but homeless grandpas with M1s can't access those sites without a lot of help.

                          The target market of gun buy backs is not homeless grandpa's and we both know it. A lot of historical relics are melted down in the name of reducing "gun crime." It doesn't, but we burn a lot of history to virtue signal anyways. It's a disgusting waste of taxpayer money.

                            Let's go back to gun buyback == book burning.

                              It's burning historical relics and family heirlooms in the name of the grabber agenda. They literally are melting down historical artifacts because Karen thinks guns are evil.

                                Well they're not all being melted down. And last I checked there was no such thing as an extinct gun.
