    Why are Americans debating this subject for in the first place?

    "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.... the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons"

    -US Supreme Court ruling in the case of District of Columbia vs Heller.

    "Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government."

    -James Madison. Founder, Framer & 3rd President of the United States.

    America's Second Amendment rights are to muzzle-loading, single-shot weapons.

    That's what was in common use at the time the Second Amendment was created.

    That's what America's founders and framers granted America's the right to keep and bear.

    Americans have no explicit right to own anything but muskets.

    Pretending they've got rights to military rifles is just them subverting/perverting like Madison said.

    This bill was authored by ignoramous anti-gun people who knew little to nothing about guns.

    "(b) DEFINITION OF SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPON"

    There is NO SUCH THING as a "semiautomatic assault weapon". An assault weapon is by definition a fully automatic firearm (which can shoot semi too, with the use of a selector switch). The rest of the items within the list does NOT define what an assault weapon is either.

    Shawn Robin writes: "America's Second Amendment rights are to muzzle-loading, single-shot weapons.

    That's what was in common use at the time the Second Amendment was created.

    That's what America's founders and framers granted America's the right to keep and bear.

    Americans have no explicit right to own anything but muskets.

    Pretending they've got rights to military rifles is just them subverting/perverting like Madison said."

    Following that line of logic, the first amendment applies to articles written with quill pens only, and printed on hand printing presses. And the first amendment doesnt apply to the internet, computer keyboards, ball point pens, modern day printing presses, typewriters, radio, tv, or the movies.

    Since the so called assault weapons are involved in less than 1% of gun crimes why are you and the rest of Obama's zombies so concerned?

    Now 50% of gun homicides are committed by black people even though they make up only 13% of the population.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to crack down on the drug dealing inner city gangs if you really want to reduce gun homicides?

    Oops too politically incorrect for Obama's zombies.

    When you attack someone with a knife, it is "Assault with a deadly weapon".

    When you defend someone with an AR15, it's considered "Self defense with a firearm".

    Considering a vast majority intends to use AR15 for the latter, I think it's better to call it a "defense weapon".

    My fists can be considered an assault weapon since they are lethal and can be used to assault people.
