Is an handgrande consider an assult weapon? Cause i have a live handgrande.
Why am I NOT surprised.
Unless a state passes a law you don't like, then make it a federal issue to override them. :sure:
Is an handgrande consider an assult weapon?
Sorry, you might be breaking a totally different law there.
A hand grenade is considered a "destructive device" under the National Firearm Act of 1934. Possession is legal only if the firearm is registered.
Guns fire a limited amount of times and need to be reloaded and we lock them up.
Knives will kill indefinitely and we leave those in the kitchen supply aisle where any nitwit can grab them.
Weapons control laws are based in inane and flimsy premises and never logic.
I am not for banning guns but...
Be interesting to see how many people are killed with kitchen knives versus guns however. Also don't know many instances of rampant knife killing ala Springfield, Oregon or Columbine.
Even as old as I am, I can still subdue an average attacker coming at me with a knife, at least I did six years ago. I would much rather face a nitwit with a knife than a nitwit hiding in the bushes with a gun.
As a sniper in vietnam, they never taught me how to kill the enemy at 300 paces with a knife throw. I must have missed class that day!
But Rich, every day there are stories about drive by knifings, multiple knifings and little kids killed by stray blades that ricochet through the walls of their bedrooms and kill them while they sleep.
But you don't hear about that on the news, because the news is so biased these days
Of course the ban did not get renewed because most people finally realized it doesn't do what the hype from the gun control fanatics say it would. The criminals actually had guns anyway - illegally! Imagine That Bogy! Darned criminals not playing by your rules!
Kerry Questioned About His 'Chinese Assault Rifle'
There he goes again...
Extremely weak attack. Are conservatives grasping at straws now?
For one thing, while current Mass. law prohibits assault weapons, it excuses those which were legal prior to September 13, 1994. Thus like the federal ban, older weapons were still legal.
Likewise the definition of an assault weapons excuses antiques, which if this came from the Vietnam era should apply.
Finally, the poor english Kerry uses can also be interpreted as meaning he no longer owns the Chinese Assault Rifle, but he used to.
BTW, the Chinese Assault Rifle is a clone of the M-16.
Critiquing Kerry that he's a hypocrite for wanting to ban assault weapons if he owns one himself however is fair game. But as mentioned above, he might have ment he no longer has it.
As long as they can get a soundbite to criticize ANYTHING, no matter how minute and irrelevant, that allows them to NOT have to address Bush's failure at EVERYTHING......
It's not so much his stand on assault weapons so much (which I haven't seen him define and I am sure changes depending on the audience to which he is speaking) as the fact that he, once again, uses the ban to remind the world that he went to Vietnam. He needs to forget about that totally and focus on the real world now if he wants to stand any chance of election.

You are putting your own bias into the story then. When asked about the ban, Kerry didn't mention his Vietnam service at all. Indeed, over the course of the interview, the only time he mentioned his Vietnam service was when asked what his favorite gun was.
In my own mind, its a reasonable answer. My brother-in-law's favorite gun is also one he had during his own Vietnam service. My grandfather's favorite gun was a German Lugar he picked up in Normandy. Its quite likely that of all the weapons Kerry has owned, he used the M-16 the most. (He had to shoot all those kids in the back you know. )
Full interview here:
I've never seen a Chinese knock-off of the M-16. The AK-47, yes, but not the M-16. The Chinese crank out SKS's (a stripped down AK) and the AK-47 by the crate load, but no M-16's.
Specifically the Chinese "CQ"
(Its a game page, but has info about the gun)
Here is another gun identified as a Chinese CQ that has a picture:

I stand corrected. I do agree with the first article though - that with a market full of M-16's and AR-15's that the CQ is more of a novelty.
The AK-47 is a fine weapon. Simple, and without the jamming problems of the M-16.
My Russian SKS does a fine job, too.
