This is'nt funny,it scary because alot of anti-gunners believe alot of that stuff. I have had quite a few brain dead soccer moms say this garbage to me,its kinda funny,they just keep repeating stupid phrases and messed up statics that they never looked up themselves. One even said I could/would become a mass murder for owning "assualt rifles","sniper rifles","assualt/riot shotguns" and "deadly handguns". "Yea, lady,I guess because I own several high preformance vintage mustangs from the '60's and 70's I am/will be a get-away driver for bank robbers." [rolleyes] oh,yea great thread,thanks.
