I agree something shouldn't be illegal just because it isn't practical. But when it comes to deadly weapons it's a little different. There is no practical need for automatics, but some states allow them. Should the same be applied for RPGs and grenades? There is no reason to have them, but that doesn't mean they should illegal?

exponentially more people are murdered by handguns every year, so i ask you again - what is your point?
So if an accident happens with a firearm it doesn't matter if it's a pellet gun or a Barrett .50?

More people are murdered by handguns because they are more practical and tactical at close range. Also it it much harder to smuggle and hide an M4. Pistols are much more accessible than assault rifles.

at this point i am not even sure what your argument is.

are you against the open carry of higher calibers or are you against the open carry of all rifles or are you against the open carry of scary looking "Assault Weapons"

if it were up to you could i open carry a:

1. AR-15 ?

2. M&P 15-22 ?

3. 30-06 hunting rifle ?

4. Uzi ?

5. P90/Ps90 ?

6. FN FiveSeven Pistol ?

honestly, if you are a mentally stable adult and pass whatever kinds of tests that would have to be in place for owning such things, yea why not.

No one is debating that a rifle is more deadly than a handgun. To act like a handgun isn't lethal at range though is asinine. A round can penetrate skin when traveling as slow as 150 ft/s, and penetrate the skull at as low as 200 ft/s. A 9mm round can travel as far as 1.36 miles and still be traveling at 300 ft/s. The problem is a handgun doesn't have enough rifling to spin the bullet fast enough to avoid tumbling, so it loses it's accuracy quickly. This has nothing to do with the lethality of the round.

what the hell does this have to do with whether someone should be allowed to open carry a rifle? I'm not sure what kind of argument you're trying to make here. People don't hunt with pistols...deer and game are shot with rifles and shotguns, so of course people aren't injured by pistols when they're hunting.

That's like saying that more hockey goals are scored using hockey sticks as opposed to baseball bats...

People definitely hunt with pistols. Quite common. There reason there aren't accidents as often is because they have much less power and cannot travel as far. Same thing with shotguns. The lethality of a pistol round that is accidentally shot past 15 yards is extremely low versus a rifle. That is my point.


The only thing I am against is open carry in metropolitan areas with anything but a pistol. An accident with a rifle is gonna be much more deadly than a pistol. That is all I'm saying. And again like snowolf said I am not saying all metropolitan areas. It should be based on both the likely hood of an accident, how deadly it would be if there was an accident, and how the culture is there.

I've seen far to many accidents to say there should be no restrictions on guns. People need to realize that accidents are 100% avoidable, but do happen. So why expose ourselves to that much more deadly risk of that accident for no benefit. If there is no benefit and negatives to it then it should at least be up for debate.
