Illegal elephant hunters use bolt-action rifles... Why should a civilian need a 30rnd full-automatic rifle effective up to and including 500 yards? In the US they mostly use 1 shot dart guns at the largest dangerous mammals.

Personally I think people who need to exercise their right to "open-carry" long rifles could find better past-times if they gave it a little more thought, but if its your lawful right you could do that. Even if its the right to arm bears...

Breacher01 wrote:Also I'm not really restricted what weapons I own, because I work as a LEO with automatics and various pistols, so I've undergone the mother of all background checks. I'm a registered and licensed fire-arms instructor as well.
Breacher01 wrote:The only problem with weapon laws are that criminals don't care about them, and that goes for every country. According to research having a part of the community carrying legal firearms, both open or concealed only makes the percentage of people having a gunshot wound somewhere in their lives, by accident or aggression only increases.
Again, can't disagree with any of those statements. I'm aware that criminals could care less about lawful behavior. I'm also aware that the only ones who will follow gun laws are those that would be the least likely to break the law in the first place.Breacher01 wrote:Five years ago we always worked with NIJ IIIA body armor. since about that time criminals all got kalashnikovs, and shoot each other with it, but also keep them in view for home defense. So my conclusion is that gun laws work, but only for people who would otherwise also treat their weapons with respect and care.

Also the rounds hit innocent people more, last week after a bar fight some idiots came back and emptied 60 rnds in the bar. I suppose you can get an idea of the results...
Oh, also terrorists use them, but that's a rare occasion. I the news they make a big deal out of it, but statistically its one of the rarest events you may encounter(civilians I mean).
