Must be a new common core standard of the second amendment in college.

For Lives and Liberty: Banning Assault Weapons in America | The Institute of Politics at Harvard University

Assault rifles make up only 1.7 percent of all guns in America. Their function in society is dispensable. A 2005 Gallup poll found that 67 percent of gun owners carried firearms for protection, 66 percent for target shooting, and 58 percent for hunting. None of these activities-the three most popular for gun users-requires assault weapons. They are inaccurate, highly visible, and bulky. Given assault weapons' limited practicality, why even involve the risk?

That's why we don't own assault weapons. Hard to carry around a machine gun you turds.

Just sent this email over to Harvard.

"Ms. Collins - I would like you to forward the following links to Jake Matthews. He might want to look at the truth before he decides to interpret the 2nd amendment. It concerns me as well as millions of Americans that he might possibly one day actually take an oath to uphold the constitution while practicing law. As a lawyer should understand, ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law. Neither is it an excuse for writing an uninformed misguided emotional piece as was written. I will chalk it up to him not knowing any better. Hopefully now he does. Although he is entitled to his own opinion, he isn't entitled to his own facts.

Respectfully,
Dr. XXX XXXXXX

Assuming by assault rifle they are referring to AR15s, inaccurate? I guess that's why they are one of the top guns used in competition shooting. Because anyone serious about competition would want to use an inaccurate gun.. hmmm. Oh wait, inaccurate.. They must mean inaccurate refers to their description of assault rifle.

"They are inaccurate, highly visible, and bulky. Given assault weapons' limited practicality, why even involve the risk?" Clearly this person has never held one. Does this mean they aren't as dangerous as the media and other ignorant activists say they are? Does this not negate the feature based ban logic? So I guess this means our troops are using fully automatic versions of these lumbering monstrosities, wrought with limited practicality and high risk. What an idiot.

I refuse to read this as the summary made my head hurt.

That and knowing that someone somewhere honestly and whole heartedly agrees with it makes my heart sad...

Now, let's compare that with an ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN that the police states have.

Inaccurate? - Let's ban pistol grips that "allow rapid and accurate spray firing from the hip.

Highly Visible?- Let's ban flash hiders that allow "concealment of the muzzle flash from others."

Bulky?- Let's ban telescoping stocks that make the OAL a few inches shorter.

No, I'm serious, they consider that an "assault weapon's ban!"

They don't know if they are coming or going! xD

:rofl:

Bonus points, click on that article and see what picture was put in there. Classic.

The term "assualt rifle/weapon" has many meanings depending only upon opinions. The antis exploit the term to their benefit and at the same time can not distinguish the diffrence between a brake or a break.

firearms owners carry firearms for protection, target shooting, and hunting.

However according to this guy, they're bulky and inaccurate. Why then, do we issue REAL assault weapons to our troops? In fact, why do all countries who have a military issue their troops some variation of an assault weapon? Perhaps we have been wrong all along! We should issue them a nice sxs shotgun or bolt action hunting rifle instead. This way they're better equipped to handle insurgents and protect themselves!

It pays to do a little research before you speak, harvard dips**t!

"The Second Amendment of the Constitution stipulates, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Guns were deemed legal not to secure personal liberties, but to provide for the state’s collective defense. Yet America no longer maintains statewide militias connected to the federal government; rather, we depend upon a standing army for defense."

what bull ****!!






for students at Harvard read this

He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.

The good sense of the people will always be found to be the best army . they may be led astray for a moment, but will soon correct themseleves. so ms collins straighten our self out!!

1.7 percent?! I find that to be very suspect. In my limited exposure to gun owners over the last few years I havent met ONE who didnt own a so called "AW". Smells like some cooking is going on.

According to one estimate, assault weapons may be involved in up to 7 percent of homicides.

It's not even 7%. You know it, I know it, we all know it.
But we'll be generous and give you your 7%. Fair?
So...You plan on banning something based on a fluid, ever changing description to reduce "homicides" by 7%?
Makes sense:wacko:
