The Bushmaster .223 semiautomatic rifle can be purchased for $699.99 from Gander Mountain. That price includes a 30-round .223 Remington magazine. Do the legitimate uses of such semiautomatic rifles outweigh their horrific uses?

...you can read my hub "Assault Weapons: Evil Black Rifles " and become really knowledgeable about the issue, including an answer to your question.
How odd only people like junk mention penises in connection with firearms. I've know tens of thousands of gunowners and have never heard them mention it outside medical discussions. Yet, give people like junk five minutes and it comes up. Yucky, eh.
Actually lots of people mention the connection between firearms and penises it's just not usually by people who are at the moment stroking their Bushmaster.
Double yucky. But he is the reason why the pro-firearms side is winning in the courts, the public opinion and legislatures. Who really in their hearts wants to stand next to a person who's first thought when seeing a gun is "penis."?
The pro-firearms side is winning because I mentioned the word penis? Wow, I had no idea my schlong was so far-reaching. Go Woody!
Best you can do, eh, Junk.
You really don't know what a semiautomatic rifle is, do you? Without googling or looking at any other reference why don't you tell us just what you think one is, and why it's use by citizens would be "illegitimate". Should be fun to read.
I suppose that a semiautomatic weapon is one that can fire multiple rounds of ammunition at the same time. So, again what would I need with that?
Automatic is one trigger pull, many bullets. Semi-automatic is one trigger pull, one bullet. Automatic weapons are mostly illegal. Semi-automatic weapons include most of the legally available rifles and handguns, including hunting rifles.
Since you're wrong in your definition that makes your question invalid on the face. Kinda like asking why unicorns are so mistreated down at the circus. But you can read my hub "Assault Weapons: Evil Black Rifles " and become really knowledgeable.
I would not recommend Jack's hub. He is not in anyway interested in an honest discussion about the relative capabilities of different weapon platforms. I am sure you can judge by his condescending tone how sincere he is in his 'educational' efforts.
junk can't actually point to anything in my hub that is wrong. He just would prefer that others remain in ignorance. The very fact that he would prefer people to not learn something speaks all we need to know.
check out my hub on "assault rifles" and then get back to us.
no that's ok. you asked a question and when i asked you the purpose, you try to promote your hub. that isn't happening . a simple answer would have sufficed but thanks anyway, you just gave me the answer.
I actually can't believe this origional question is list as one of the "best " because these answers are the absolute worst ! THIS GUN pictured above is but one design of a gun , in that design it only functions as the same as any semi -auto gun !
Cars aren't designed to kill people. Guns sorta have an intented purpose: poking holes in people.
Sometimes people legitimately and legally need holes poked in them. Even lots of holes. Sometimes lots of people. It's not up to you to decide what a person uses to best accomplish that.
Sure it is. It's called a vote.
Good luck with that thinking that you can vote away the rifles from the hands of the people.
I'm not trying to argue. I asked someone to provide a legitimate reason to own this type of weapon for the non-military,non-police,non- security non-collectors among us. And, still no answer.
You got a perfectly good answer. Everyone who reads this thread sees that. Why do you claim to be a Christian on your bio yet you're willing to fudge the truth right here in front of God and the whole 'net? What kind of "message" is that sending?
The 2nd Amendment is not because the people fear the government. It is to make the government fear the people.
Exactly. The reason bearing arms is a constitutional right is so that we the people have the ability to overthrow the government if it ever becomes a tyrant. It has nothing to do with paranoia, it's called logic.
