    Mark Panozzo — Weapons “that can spray 800 rounds in 60 seconds” are already heavily restricted, and have been so since 1934.

    “For example, if we stop selling guns like the AR-15 to the general public tomorrow, . . .”

    Who’s this “we” here? Why should I go along with this?

    “. . . why would that be offensive to responsible gun owners?”

    Responsible gun owners realize that the firearm is an inanimate object, regardless if it’s a .22 LR bolt-action rifle or an M240 machinegun.

    Responsible gun owners realize that the cosmetics of a firearm don’t matter all that much when it comes to a given weapon’s ballistic lethality, and that the .223 Remington round fired by the AR-15 is on the low end where centerfire rifle cartridges are concerned.

    Joe, Tamsen — Come and take them. YOURSELVES. No delegating the dirty work to the cops or military.

    I for one am excited about developments such as the 80% AR-15 lowers, Cody Wilson’s Ghost Gunner desktop CNC machine, 3D printing, the fact that you can make an AK-47 using a shovel as raw material for the receiver (search for it on DuckDuckGo or Startpage) . . .

    The hoplophobes and victim disarmers always forget these points:

    1. The United States has 12,000 miles of basically unenforceable borders. If people can be smuggled in and cars smuggled out routinely, how can they stop guns from coming in?
    2. There are hundreds of millions of firearms in America’s existing stockpiles, with more being added every day. I doubt that people panic-buying guns for the past few years intend to turn them in.
    3. America has the world’s largest stockpiles of precision machine tools. You can order a lathe or CNC machine and have it delivered to your home, with the only paperwork being the sales slip, if you have the FRNs available to you. Add in the Ghost Gunner I mentioned above . . . And that sort of tech is only going to get cheaper and more versatile as time goes on.
    4. Surveys of cops and military personnel consistently yield results showing 60-70 percent of them to be on our side to a large degree. Add to this the fact that the “fusion centers” in various states are parroting the DHS / SPLC line labeling veterans as “potential terrorists.”
    5. Most of America’s food production takes place in areas friendly to gun ownership.
    6. To go from one part of “Gun Free America” (really Hoplophobatopia) to another (the “liberal” states and big cities), they have to traverse the gun-friendly turf.
