Hundreds of the weapons advertised on KSL.com classifieds are rapid-firing military weapons with pedigrees from around the world.
The proliferation of these weapons, based on military designs, including the ubiquitous AK-47 by Mikhail Kalashnikov, have become wildly popular among shooting enthusiasts. And that popularity is a grave concern to gun-control activists.
"I don’t know how anyone can justify having one of those weapons," says Steven Gunn, a spokesman for the Gun Violence Protection Center of Utah. "Except their usual explanation that it is to ‘resist tyrannical government.’ "
I'm not sure what they mean by "rapid-firing." I suppose that can apply to any semi-automatic weapon. It fires as rapidly as you can squeeze the trigger.
The problem seems to always get back to this: how can we distinguish these undesireable weapons from the others which have more-or-less the same characteristics?
I'm certainly no expert, but I'm going to throw out a suggestion here. If the gun fires one of those scary, pointy bullets, it's banned. Would that work for ya?
What's your opinion? No more guns that fire these kinds of bullets. All the remaining ammo stocks can be turned into cool jewelry.
