Automatic weapons are guns that can shoot multiple bullets while just holding the guns trigger. These weapons were designed to destroy objects or committing a murder. A weapon like this has no right in being in a family’s home. That is why I believe that the United States government should put a ban on these kinds of weapons. I think automatic weapons should be banned from the United States because a weapon that has a designed purpose of destroying or murdering will cause chaos in the United States.

Guns that have the power to kill 30 to 40 people in less then 60 seconds is not necessary to be in a persons house,car,jacket and so on. Many people might think that this is against there rights, but I am not stating that all guns should be banned. I think that hunting rifles or a hunting weapon is alright because there hunting which is something that they are killing that will not go to waste. Hunters don’t need an automatic weapons to kill one deer .when people go hunting they will use up everything they kill, but when people slaughter each other they will not be eating themselves.

I believe automatic weapons should be banned from the United States because a weapon that has the purpose to destroy or murder will cause many deaths in the U.S. I only believe a place that needs automatic weapons and should have them such as the army. The army should be allowed to carry those weapons because they might have to kill people to protect us. This is what I think about automatic weapons.

A gun is a gun weather pistol, rifle, or other automatic or semi a gun is a gun

Automatic weopons were legal up to 1934 until the US congress decided aginst it becuase of the power a single gun ,am can do with it. a regular automatic machine gun shoots 160 rounds per 60 sec..

Althou difficult automatic weapons can be obtaiined by civilans. but there are numerous backround/personality checks that must be performed for one to purchas an automatic weapon

but in my mind any weopn is a weopn

so i think Full-Auto weapons Should be Legal to buy and own.

People hardly use all the parts of the animal when they hunt. Most of the animal goes down the drain. 

What if we need to protect ourselves? How will we if we can't have guns? How will we defend our neighbors, our families? 

Why should the army be able to have these guns if we shouldn't? They're still murdering people. Most of the time it's not for protection, too. The government often declares war when it isn't completely necessary, when we would be perfectly safe without a war. What then?
