having lunch with him today, basically he said that all assault weapons are designed to kill and AR-15's and semi auto AK47's can be easily converted to full auto I said what about owning them for shooting at paper targets and water bottles and he repeated that they are only designed to kill. and then he said i want to shoot up water balloons and paper targets to get a pellet gun or a .22. i then said what about my m1 garand, its only designed to kill, and then my mom cut us off. I then said, what about my Hakim, its semi auto, can only be semi auto, and only holds 10 rounds. and he said that even 10 rounds is too many. and then I said well you can put in an mg-13 mag with a little work and have it hold 30 rounds, and then he said it should definitely be banned. but then he was ok with my garand because it has a fixed magazine. and he went on about how the gun laws in england have reduced murder there, and I told him about how actually they've increased, and murder by stabbing has increased greatly. and I always thought he was pretty level headed because he's conservative republican.
