    As usual, the left wants to invoke the image of the LA shootings where illegal, fully auto AKs were used by felons.

    The public thinks what we know as semi auto AK-47s are fully auto and that anyone can just waltz into a gunshop and walk out with a fully auto assault rifle. In the case of a fully auto AK, the usually misused term assault rifle is correct. Don

    Honestly, I see nothing wrong with the idea of being able to waltz into a gunshop and come out with a full auto rifle. I have never fired one, but I imagine they walk all over the place when holding down the trigger. Seems like a mass murderer would get the same kill count with an auto, and just waste more bullets, unless he had some formal training, which they usually don't.

    The sword, the AK47 and all the other terrible implements of soldiers that are used on the battlefield are the birthright of American citizens, so this misguided gentleman sitting in the White House can put that in his joint and smoke it.

    I'm surprised that the civilian industry didn't have to develop a name such as AKA7 like they did for the M1A to differentiate the semi from the real thing.

    There it is!
    The real true Obama and what his plans are for the 2nd amendment.
    This is why people by the thousands flock to buy guns after a tradegy like in Colorado.
    More people have gone out and bought firearms and women in particular getting CCW licenses under this president than ever!
    He's going to take our rights away once again.
    This is the hint of the new Brady Bill he will put in place if he gets in again.
    FBI statistics proved the Brady Bill did nothing to reduce gun crime or murders in the US.
    What does the AK-47 have to do with anything?
    The shoother in Colorado did not have an AK-47.
    Its a SEMI-automatic rifle like any other semi auto, not fully-auto and military issue as almost all articles are suggesting.
    What hypocrisy, after the botched Fast And Furious Operation where he and his people got a US border agent and thousands of Mexican citizens killed, all just so he could pass another gun law as he did in the southern border states.
    He has balls to talk about passing stricter gun laws after that disgrace.
    Dope smoking "Barry" should be inputting stricter laws on the wide spread abuse of medical marijuana rather than taking our rights away.
    I hope to God Obama may have just put the last nail in his coffin for getting re-relected.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there is anything he can say that will keep him from being reelected.

    Those that love him could care less about rights. Much less gun rights.

    Unfortunately the gun lobby focuses too much of its efforts on bashing Obama and other liberals and screaming "2nd Amendment" and not enough time educating the general public about firearms. Between Obama, O'Reilly and other gov't and media members I've heard a lot of misinformation spewed in the media since the CO shootings. But I haven't heard anyone from, say, the NRA publicly explain the facts. Most non-gun owners, and even some gun owners, have no idea that civilian versions of AK-47s or AR-15s are semi auto or, if they are full auto, they are heavily regulated.

    Like so many other issues in this country we need more education and frank discussion and less politicking...

    Wait, I had some fellas on here telling me several times over the past few years that the NRA was full of crap when they said Obama wanted to take away guns... Now I'm confused (not really though)...

    The loonies on the left want to take away all of our guns, not just AK-47's. They want your CCW pistol, your hunting rifles (sniper rifles to them), etc... they do not want you to own weapons that could be used to fight for freedom or self defense.

    The UN gun treaty is being voted on tomorrow and it would essentially disarm the American people.

    Gun control is not about guns, it is about control.

    Sorry, but why is he talking about it at all unless he is proposing new legislation? Does he not have better things to do? Like fixing the bloody economy?

    He can't fix anything. He has no experience in business and politics (voted present), and he has only socialist liberals feeding him information. This is the dumbest administration.

    He has no intent of making things better for the public, just making things better for himself. You and I don't count.

    I just had an anti gunner tell me today the founding fathers could have never imagined "assault rifles" back when they wrote the 2nd Amendment. They would have never agreed to people having weapons of mass murder.

    I had to explain that back when they wrote the 2nd Amendment, anyone could own cannons, hand grenades and explosive rockets ("rockets red glare"). To name a few of the toys avilable at the time. I think they understood what they were doing when writing the 2nd.

    That theater was a battlefield. Too bad only the enemy was allowed to have guns in it.

    Thousands of Mexican drug cartel members buy them cheap and stack them deep from US gun stores, and they know and use their fully automatic US provided weaponry down thataway in fast and furious battlefield action. Where these evil implements of death and destruction are KING! Just like we do here in the US inner cities.

    Or so some would have everyone without a brain to believe.

    How soon will prices begin the climb to spike? By 5:00p.m. eastern time today or will it wait until Friday morning?
