axxe55 your post #4 is well put. I recently did a high school capstone project on guns and their correlation to violence and that was essentially my point of my 12 page paper and 7 minute speech. I don't think my liberal teachers much cared for my position on my topic, but had nothing to say as I shut their questions down with reasonable responses. I don't think they know what hit them. I love proving anti gun people wrong. I would love to have a fully automatic gun, but it is impractical for most citizens because of the lead you would have to feed through it, too expensive. I didn't touch on this subject in my paper though because they aren't legal or very accessible making them irrelevant. If anyone would like to read my paper just let me know and I can get it too you. It is full of great information and would be a good read for any gun lover!
