The concept of gun control wouldnt bother me so much if it wasnt for the fact that NONE OF THE LAWS MAKE SENSE.

Achieving what?

Has there ever even been a violent crime committed with a .50BMG? I'm sure some people pot signs but that doesnt really count.

Kids arent stupid but unfortunately most have no common sense. If they want they will always find a way around whatever you PUT in the way.

Laws, locks and bans arent a substitute for education.

Again, achieving what?

Its just another crappy piece of paper written up to try and discourage people from a hobby that takes patience, practice and self control.
