    More lies from Obozo. Machine gun AK47's are ALREADY illegal. Nothing in this statement supports anything that Obama is proposing.

    What? A gun that is illegal for personal ownership and yet our democracy has not crumbled? Goodness! I am shocked. With all the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over the idea of the AR-15 possibly being banned by Congress, you'd think the U.S. would have collapsed the second the AK47 was kept out of Granny Smith's hands. But somehow, we've staggered on. I suspect it will be the same if the AR-15 is banned.

    @Zazziness there is no federal law against owning a AK-47. There are laws in place that new make it basicly impossible to buy a new AK-47 or other machine gun, but you can buy from another owner in accordence with federal law.

    An AK-47 fully automatic is a true assault rifle. An AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle. I think anyone moved by his statements doesn't own a weapon to begin with. Look to Chicago's record. I rest my case.

    Reagan is not here any more. None of Obama's proposals with do anything to reduce crime. When he is ready to address crime control we can talk. But all he wants now is control. If you can't or won't see it I don't know what to tell you. He never expected to get the assault weapons ban or the magazine restrictions. All he really wants is a national registration. He is not above lying and when he says he isn't trying to infringe on the second amendment he is lying. This is a line in the sand issue to a lot more people than rednecks and a lot of democrat senators are fully aware that a vote for any gun control will cost them their seat.

    Vote up if you noticed Obama drew an idiotic parallel between machine guns (already illegal) and semi automatic rifles that you can accessorize

    As he said "Machine Guns" and yes they have been banned since 1984
    to own a Machine Gun you have to have a class 3 FFL "Federal Firearms License"

    an AR 15 surely isnt a "Machine Gun"
    Liberals try to make it look like one, and some fools believe what liberals spew.
    But in the end its all liberal babble, They do not even know the differance between a "Clip" and a "Magazine"

    shows what they truly DO NOT KNOW!!

    To add, they also don't know that a so called "assault rifle" is simply a rifle with an added handle. Both are semi automatic guns, the same as a semi automatic handgun whereas one must pull the trigger for each shot.

    The over hype gun ban stems from the ignorantly uneducated fear mongering jackasses who speak from emotion and not of logic.

    I believe that private citizens (not licensed by the federal government) have been banned from owning "machine-guns" (or any fully automatic weapon) since 1934. And wasn't it the 1986 "Firearms owners protection act" that then made it illegal (even for federally licensed individuals) to acquire any new machine-guns?

    If you have the ability to recall Columbine occurred under the Reagan years assault weapons ban.Barry may have forgot that but i didnt.He once again invokes a true leader in hope that others will see him in the same light.How ignorant.

    @thatgirlLOL was it not an assault weapons ban invoked by Reagan and the congress that was in effect at the time of Columbine?Yes it was .If barry could do the same today it will have no effect on those fools determined to kill.Im thinking you are capable of seeking truth lay down the Obama cool-aid.America needs those that can think for them selves,the german people realized that to late.Find the truth.

    we have reached a point in this country where Reagan couldn't carry a single state in the redneck right world. The dumbing down of America is just about complete.

    giving shamnesty proved what reagan was. one thing it did do was prove a shamnesty does not work and calls for more with out full enforcement of the laws that went along with it.

    the only thing obama should see from reagan is that shamnesty is a complete failure and those who are still in office are as well being they refused to follow through on all things they agreed to,like making it a federal felony to help illegal aliens stay in the country.if those laws were enforced as written we would not have thei problem now with this same issue that was said to be put to and end in 86.

    No, do not give up hope. The hoi polloi are slowly waking up to what's being done to them. This is only Act II of a four act play.

    What is it about men and guns? Is it some penis extender that makes them feel all manly about being able to blow someone's brains out from say, 50 yards away? Is that manly?

    Guns are fine for women who are being stalked and professional enforcers, such as police officers, body guards, military personnel or anyone who needs them for work, but to possess them in alarming numbers, and then talk about how many rounds of ammunition they wasted on targets, bodies or woodland creatures seems so REALLY FUCKING STUPID.

    @harold_lloyd I do give up. The internet is a hotbed of pedophiles and porn and lunatic fringe Facebook and bullies and I'm about to get kicked off here for standing up to the petty vindictiveness of a moderator. Whatever. I just can't believe that there is no place where people can just be normal people on the internet without being harassed and bullied by minimum wage power junkies.

    Reagan was also the man responsible for Ollie North's Iran-Contra Scandal involving flying drugs to sell in order to finance Black Operations involving weapons for Nicaraguan insurgents. Even a former high-ranking US Army general and other former military and/or sheep-dipped pilots such as Hassenfus and Konopka prominently involved. So, President Reagan is perhaps not the best poster-person for advocacy against military-look alikes currently mislabeled "assault weapons", especially since he seems to be totally ignorant of firearms nomenclature. No "machine guns" were then being sold nor are they being sold now, except in the COMPETING Drug Cartels in Colombia, Mexico and Nicaragua.

    a full operational AK 47 or machine gun is not needed as Pres R said, however this socialist is going after guns and clips that are not in this catagory. So using RR quotes is just another Obama gimmick!

    It wasn't all that long ago when LaPierre testified that universal background checks were a wonderfully good idea.

    This is not an issue where rationality reigns supreme.

    How much does LaP get paid?

    An AK-47 is not what this assault weapons ban is about. The AK-47 he was talking about is the fully automatic machine gun that can fire 600rpm. Obama wants all semi-automatic rifles with a removable magazine and scary pistol grips to be declared an assault weapon.
  • #30

    Why would he be talking about banning fully automatic weapons when they were already banned? It is more likely that he misspoke, since AK-47s with a fully automatic selection are assault rifles, not machine guns. Ronald Reagan was well known for getting his facts mixed up.

    @Dan_Tien they were not banned. Also I already posted the ATF definition of a machine gun, and any fully automatic gun is a machine gun.

    @Yank Alright, machine guns are not banned, they are restricted to people who pass all of the checks required to get the proper permits. That is what people who protest the restriction of semiautomatic only versions of assault rifles call "banned", since they would not be able to go to Wal-Mart and buy one.

    @Yank "According to U.S. Army doctrine, a machine gun is distinguished from an automatic rifle by how it is used: a machine gun is a crew-served weapon, while an automatic rifle is used by a single person."

    It may convince some people. However, if they make it, people own it. I would not want to go up against someone with an AK-47 and all I have is a 22. Our police own machine guns, our government sure as h*ll owns machine guns. What if the government collapses as you say, people will have access to those machine guns, right.

    Very poor choice. A man who directed our countries intelligence community into taking part in drug trafficking in order to raise money to support a covert war in Nicaragua against its Marxist government. I sincerely believe that Reagan was like George W. Bush (clueless) but with a superior command of the English language. Like with "W", he was the figurehead for others in his Administration. He was just Canonized to Sainthood by many of his Republican followers. Those of us who've followed history know better than to be herded into disarming ourselves for our own "safety". No matter how many inane one-liners and insults the Kool-Aide drinkers hurl at us. The same thing applies to firearms as applies to abortions: Don't like them? Don't get one! Just don't interfere in others' right to have one. At least, so far, the anti-gun people don't go around killing firearms' advocates the way that anti-abortion radicals do.....SO FAR. These folks accuse US of being done and they can't do the math. SCORES OF MILLIONS of gun-owning people; 11,101 homicides a year- the bulk committed by drug-dealing inner-city gangs, and a handful of crazies with DEMOCRATIC PARTY AFFILIATIONS who have committed horrific shootings. I did what one poster suggested. I Googled Wikipedia and List of Rampage Killers. I will show you that these things still happen even in Communist China with its ban on firearms ownership by individuals. Whatsmore, in the South Pacific Rim area they call Oceania, the incidents OUTNUMBER those of the United States! Just like violent crime has gone wild in England after it's firearms bans. Probably the reason we're getting so many English immigrants in the USA.

    typographical errors: ".....accuse US of being dumb..." and "It will show you that...."
    "...in England after its firearms bans.".
