Thread Name: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Well I just put a call into a friend of mine, he is a life long NRA member and a master gun smith. I was telling him about our conversation. He also does not support any ban on any weapon and I respect and understand his opinion. However, discussing the AK-47, the reason that it is the perferred weapon of choice for many armies is the beauty and elegance of its simplistic design. He said with a quarter of the parts out or broken the weapon still functions. It was designed to be very simple yet very durable and powerful. When I asked him how hard it was to convert. His first words were illegal absolutely, but for a bad guy quite simple with some parts from any machine shop and on line instructions. Ok so it is easy to make fully auto .. that is my point with it and that is why I really don't care if they ban it or not. Even though I support the bill of rights. The problem is too many bad guys. well I made my point but I do very much respect other views without question.
