the 2nd amendment isn't about hunting.... it's about protecting citizens from all enemies foreign or domestic.... right now it seems we have more domestic enemies than forreign ones. Eric Holder says no one has the right to keep and bear arms..

hammers killed more people last year than assault weapons did.... by the way it is legal to hunt deer in ND with any semi auto assault rifle including the AK-47 .22-.49 caliber AK's are .309 caliber coyote hunters love the AR's... they have there place...

It is still a good point to leave hunters out of this debate. I have hunted all my life and own around 10 rifles shotguns I dont care a whit about assault rifles or playing soldier. I also do not think a ban will work. I just think the debate is about your right to keep and bear arms to defend yourself against the government. The government by the way has fully automatic weapons, drones, Fighters, helicoptors missiles and a host of weapons in between so if you dont control the armed forces good luck to you with your AR. In conculusion leave hunters out of this it is not about hunting. (yes NRA I know they will be coming for my guns next)I also know the possibilites of limited hunting exist with some assault rifles but spreading peanut butter with a fork dont make it a knife.

How many hunters use AK47s,AR15s,M-16s for hunting? What would be the advantage over any other hunting rifle?

AR can be extremely accurate... also easy to change calibers so one platform can be used for different types of hunting... ie one rifle system instead of numerous rifles..

Dene Karna, After reading your comment, I have to believe the you are (1) misinformed or (2) uneducated in the use of an AK-47. First, an AK-47 shoots a 7.62 x 39 cartridge. A very popular hunting rifle shoots a 7.62 x 51. These are the metric sizes. In English they are both .308 caliber cartridges. Difference being total length. As far as hunting with an AK-47, I have. You just have to know limitations of the rifle you are using. An Ak-47 is a great rifle for hunting nuisance animals, ie prarie dogs. If you go to places in the south like Texas where they are being over run with wild hogs. They can also be used for bigger game. Again understanding the limitations. A deer is easily killed out to 250 yards or so. People should also learn what an assault weapon is verses a semi-auto rifle. Assault weapon is a military weapon that is FULL AUTO ie (1) pull of the trigger and every round is fired. Semi-Auto means YOU HAVE TO PULL THE TRIGGER ONCE YOU GET ONE ROUND FIRED.

PoeticJusticeMMXIV There is no such weapon as a "military combat-style assault weapon" An assault weapon is military fully automatic machine gun. Those have been banned from public ownership since the 1930's. You really should educate yourself before you post jibberish.

Please enlighten us with your wisdom as to what a "military combat-style assault weapon" is.

So now we see. Firearms really is not your strong suit. You really don't know what you are talking about. Why don't you champion alcohol deaths. Over 100,000 people die each year from alcohol related accidents. Over 25,000 from car crashes alone!

AK10, AR15, AK47, etc. can be used for hunting, but that isn't the point. Deer don't shoot back. The Second Amendment says nothing about hunting, but guarantees the right to bear the kind of arms that would be used if we need to form a militia from armed citizens. These rifles save way more lives than they take. Firearms in general are used between 107,000 (Brady) to 2.5 million times per year for self defense (most without needing to be fired). That dwarfs the 300 or so homicides committed with rifles in any given year. These firearms aren't for hunting people anymore than a kitchen knife is for murdering people in the shower. They are for defense of life; same reason police have the same rifles & magazines. Don't libs care about the millions of crimes PREVENTED successfully by armed citizens? (don't answer, I already know)

google "ABC, CBS, NBC Admit No Assault" and you tube clip comes up....watch.

But it does NOT matter....we must not let this crisis go to waste, as we have agendas we must get done. And pretty much none of it will move forword if we have an armed citizenry. They must be disarmed, even if it's piecemeal to do it. My Democrat Party must take steps to keep permanent power. And my President Omama is definitely do his part to make that happen with his needed imperialistic power grabs.

It is right that the mainstream media is not reporting on this, rather letting people think the children were killed with an assault rifle.....all for the children....moving the country forword for the children....

I think it's BillGarrGetsThingsRiledUp.

That must be the objective of the fixation on identity.

Thanks, posters, for the interesting information.

Yes, Hope4, MDN deleted my comment about fictional characters created by Wade1. There is NO Donna and Jack May of Hillsboro, just a sham pulled on the MDN and the readers by Wade1/JByrd..... way, way back.

....and you won't still see them at the Hillsboro Free-Lunch Counter Café.

Could you clarify. This ol' boy is confused.

Thanx, Bill

You gun nuts are full of it. The gun in the trunk was a shotgun. He killed all of his victoms with an AR 15. Stop listening to the Rightwing NRA propoganda. What fools.

it's amazing to me to see people completely unconcerned that the main stream media is manufacturing news, instead of just reporting it... can we say PRAVDA or DER SPIEGEL... but since these news outlets also praised the move foreward their dictators wanted it doesn't surprise me too much to have the good little worker or welfare bees just fall in line..

The first time I made reference on the MDN site that an AR was not used, many of those of my Democrat Party got emotional....as we do....and sent many "abuse" notices to the MDN. Now we are finding out....if we look and search....that there ARE many reports of that out there. You just would not know, if you listen to what politicians and the voices of my MSM are telling us.

I feel we must all come together to know what the real truth is...and then still fight to move my Democrat Party forword by taking ALL guns from the people. The people just don't know what's best for them, I feel...

PJ, I'd agree with your post if 1) you weren't kidding, 2) you weren't sarcastic, 3) you weren't a liberal, and 4) it wasn't an AK-47.

Democracy is most often built and maintained with the use of guns. Although some of the new Democracies that are blossoming around the world are quite ragged at the edges the people who are creating those Democracies could not do that with out guns just as we did is 1776. Maintaining Our Democracy is up to the People. There will always be those who are willing to fight and die if need be and the biggest thank you goes to them, Respect. There will also always be those who are not willing to fight and die if need be and a thank you also goes to them for searching for a better way to end the conflict if possible, Insight. The guns used in these life wrenching decisions suddenly diminish in importance to the decisions themselves made by the humans involved in the traumatic occasions guns are used. Thank you.
