The work of many minds, the Constitution stands as a model of cooperative statesmanship and the art of compromise.
No matter what laws are legislated, nothing can be done to control all the guns in private hands today.
In other words, legislation will be almost meaningless.
Especially meaningless to evil criminals that are ignoring existing legislation.
Now that we have established that hyperbole works fine in your arguments why do you question hyperbole in other's arguments?
HYPERBOLA BULLSHIT......... it is as low as it been in fifty years and right at the bottom or near the bottom of the range for the last 100 years.

That step alone would cut the murder rate worldwide down however with 300 millions guns in the US the idea of having a war on so call illegal guns would be as pointless as the drug war had been.
Yeah. Instead of hydroponics or meth labs in basements, there'd be milling tools producing Sten guns. The hardest part would be making the barrels, and that's not even very hard these days.
you live in a dream world.
If citizens rebelled they would find themselves quickly left out to dry by other citizens that have no desire to rebel. Recent history is full of splinter groups that convinced themselves they could start a revolt in the US and overthrow the government. Those groups are in jail or still trying to plan. There is no large scale uprising to be found anywhere in the country Bill.
Trust me. People value their lives far more than they value letting 10% of the country have assault weapons.
If Congress passed disarming you all, with no buy-back, and the President signed it you would either capitulate, as most "law-abiding" citizens would obviously do, or be a criminal with sanctions of a severity to match the threat.
Stephen King just wrote:Plenty of gun advocates cling to their semi-automatics the way Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson clung to the s-hit that was killing them.
Yet another thread on the same topic.
There will be no major legislative gon control response, leaving King Barrack to work is will through executive fiat.
Currently it doesn't look like he cares enough about the issue to push this to a Constitutional crisis.

With this expression of profound ignorance, it is understandable why you never want to engage in any meaningful discussion, H20guy.
There is no logical reason for politicians to compromise on Obama's gun control / American disarmament plan.
Obama's plan is unconstitutional, anti-freedom and anti-American.
Joe Biden’s gun tip of the day:
You don’t need an ‘assault weapon’ for home protection — just get yourself a double-barrel shotgun
I agree with him that a shotgun is a better weapon then a so call assault weapon for home defend or for killing a lot of school children for that matter.
In neither case would I go with a double barrel shotgun but a pump one.
