1. You didn't answer my question. Why do you need a "semi" machine gun?

Thats actually a pretty good point, why do THEY need them? When was the last time our police force had to use a 30 round clip? I mean they are just protecting themselves from a bad guy or two most times, thats just overkill right?
9/11 was a mass murder, no guns
So we ignore guns because 9/11 was worse?
The logic behind most arguments ITT is invalid

So? The build up to 9/11 encompassed many illegal activities leading up to the actual killing, owning a gun isn't illegal.
yes, taking gun rights will not/has not worked. Id be for an alternative solution, we have some bright people in this country, we can come up with something other than taking away freedoms.
One I heard today was stationing a military person or two in every school in America for 6 month rotations, on the surface I like it, ready made trained security that would not cost any extra money and IMO their presence alone would cause a mass murdering coward to think twice before trying out a school.Same concept as Marshals on planes.
Plan on getting me an AR-15 soon. Maybe for an after-Christmas gift to myself. Ever since getting out of the marines, I've been itching to shoot again.
Was a 4 time expert shooter on the range. Need that hobby back.
Id like an AA-12
1) We can not afford this
2) Think about how this would affect the children. That's traumatizing.
3) Every school shooter goes in with the intent that they will take their own life.
4) If the shooter were to identify an area where he could isolate his target, the military person would be slow to respond.

and the award for worst argument ever goes to.....???
point is, you cant stop a person/people who are determined to kill you no matter what law you put in place or what weapon you ban, its folley, they will simply find another way to do it. But you libs dont get that, head is too far up governments behind thinking it will save you.
Over simplification and attacking liberals is not helping your argument.
Yes you can stop a person who intends to kill. And that is what we have to work on as a country. Whether it means laws against automatic guns, or more safety in school, or better care for those who may be deranged.
Laws won't prevent murder?
also i don't define myself by liberal/conservative and I'm split pretty damn evenly between both parties ideologies.
No. Its against the law to murder someone. People still murder people.
Its always going to happen. If it isn't guns, it will be bombs. If it isn't bombs, it will be knives.

BUT IT MAKES THEM FEEL LIKE THERE ARGUMENT IA STRONGER
No....no you cannot. If someone is bound and determined to commit something like that then it is absolutely going to happen. No amount of legislation was going to permanently stop the deranged killer. Keep living in your fantasy world though.

That has obviously been the case
Pretty sure I've seen the term fantasy world over 50 times from the gun supporters. Australia, UK, Japan... damn fantasy lands.
But the measures will punish people who did nothing wrong, and murders and school shootings will still happen. Pointless unconstitutional legislation, period.
Creating legislation to limit ANY firearms will not work.
If tomorrow there was a ban on automatic weapons, within a week(if i had the money) i could have one and plenty of ammo. The only way to deter these people is to increase security.
And to an earlier post you made: While I don't doubt what you summarized SCOTUS saying is true, any halfway decent lawyer could prove that is just not the case. Last time I checked the second amendment it does not say handguns but arms in general(Note:not attacking you, but that ruling by the court. That is a failure just like the dred Scott ruling)
The second amendment was created for state militias if they ever needed to go against the federal government. It's not a right that some people think it is.
You literally do not know what reality is. Sense those countries are absolutely like America and all.
All you people understand is data. There are lies, damn lies, and statistics.
Statistics do not prove everything, they can be skewed ro favor one side easily, you are smart enough to know that.
And if you do not believe the scenario I laid out is possible for every deranged killer you cannot be reasoned with.
