Not an FFL, just a $200 tax stamp (which won't be issued without a background check, but still). It takes a Type 03 FFL to transfer an NFA item, but not to own one. And yes, Obama's ATF will issue it as long as the paperwork comes back clean, just as it will with a suppressor, machine gun, short-barreled rifle or shotgun, or any other NFA item.
There is a difference between advocating attacking people with guns and actually doing it
But neither is protected by any concept of "rights".
Really? So none of the warhawks are covered by the First Amendment?
You're sitting in front of a terminal that gives you access to information in a way that makes the great library at Alexandria look like a comic book store, and you can't be arsed to look up what the 17th Amendment says before commenting on it?
The 17th Amendment does not give two senators to each state. That was written into the original Constitution; the bicameral system was a compromise between those who wanted population-proportional representation (i.e. the House of Representatives) and equal-state representation (i.e. the Senate).
The 17th Amendment changed the method for choosing senators from selection by the state legislature (US Constitution, Article 1, Section 3, Clause 1) to a popular vote by the people of the state. The Founders had very specific reasons for having the state legislatures choose senators instead of the people; the 17th Amendment changed the balance of power significantly.
The newspaper will still have a right to freely express its opinions; it's just going to have to repair its presses first.
Damaging the property of another--whether physically or operationally--is also a violation of rights.
That's not the way do to it. The camera should be recording for the whole shift, but if the officer doesn't unholster a weapon, that day's footage gets erased at the end of the shift. If a weapon is drawn, footage around that event would be saved. Less privacy worries for the officers, and more incentive for them to resolve situations without firing.
Like, for example, choking the victim to death. Cf. Eric Garner, etc.
I'm not seeing the problem either way.
Truth is its own virtue.
You're thinking of Ted Kennedy, and he didn't quite make it across the bridge.
Spoken like a true BOFH.
Who cares that they chop off the heads of our users, as long as they aren't getting into the system.
Because a computer is worth more than a human life.
Objection! Assumes facts not in evidence!
OP clearly said "users."
3. #2 also applies to gays. They should have a right to live how they wish like everyone else. They don't deserve the special privileges or attention they get from the left.
What special privileges do you suppose liberals are trying to get for gays. The right to marry the person of their choice just like a heterosexual can?.
The special privileges granted to married couples. How about we just do away with those entirely? Allow people to form whatever family units they want. Don't give special tax statuses. Allow inheritance under uniform rules. Allow whomever somebody wants to be involved in medical decisions.
Recognizing gay marriage perpetuates the problem; the real solution is to de-recognize marriage as a special state of being. Just let people make their own decisions.
No need for nukes with North Korea, anyway. They will easily be flattened by conventional missles. They are effectively defenceless and have a tiny infrastructure. Any war with them with missiles would be concluded before you heard about it on Slashdot.
Certainly before the third time we heard it on Slashdot, anyway.
If Kim had a shotgun and behaved like this in L.A., LAPD would have plugged him about 40 times by now.
...with 930 shots fired, three dogs killed, and a small child wounded.
Sounds like Ruby Ridge.
When Weaver refused to become "a snitch," the ATF filed the gun charges in June 1990, also claiming Weaver was a bank robber with criminal convictions (those claims were false: at that time Weaver had no criminal record and the subsequent Senate investigation found: "Weaver was not a suspect in any bank robberies.")
By the definition given in 26 U.S.C. 5845, there is legally no distinction between full-auto as you have described and burst:
The term “machinegun” means any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger. The term shall also include the frame or receiver of any such weapon, any part designed and intended solely and exclusively, or combination of parts designed and intended, for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun, and any combination of parts from which a machinegun can be assembled if such parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.
Assault rifles, by definition, are selective fire: they have a semiautomatic and some form of automatic mode. The term "assault weapon is a misleading term deliberately crafted to take advantage of the confusion between assault rifles and cosmetically-similar semiautomatic-only rifles.
Some of them are willing to risk a murder rap for twenty bucks. Happens to pizza delivery men more often than you might think.
