HA! HELL NO! Our nation suffers from predation by polar bears, and we find assault weapons an excellent counter.

We also like artillery and flamethrowers, but that's another story.

I think a number of nations would be in favour of this.

The Republic of Neo River would not be in favor of this proposal, see, I told you, back in the Chemical Ban proposal, that the ban on Chemical Weapons would just lead us down a slipperly slope! I told you so!!!!! :mad: :sniper: :mp5:

This should be an individual nation thing. But then again, most of these resolutions should have been including the progressive tax one. I voted for that one, but I felt bad for possible Conservatives playing the game. I know I don't have a vote on any proposal, but I'm just saying.

Here's the proposal text:

Civilian Assault Weapons Ban
A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.

Category: Gun Control
Decision: Tighten
Proposed by: IceAngel

Description: CONCEDING: That every person has the right to bear "arms"
HOWEVER: There is no necessity for Assault Wepons. Their legality encourages crime and makes gun crimes more prevalant. No citizen of any country requires the abilites of a assault wepon for hunting or self-defense. Most gun crimes are committed with weapons that are assault weapons.
IF ENACTED: This resoulution would make it illegal for any civliian of all UN Member Nations to posses a assault style weapon. Assault weapons would still be legal for Military and Police persons.

Approvals: 9 (Darth Mall, Bernardi, Gaiah, UntamedFangirls, Diamond Realms, Juna Esperantisto, Funkdunk, Of Cascadia, MegMayhem)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 140 more approvals)

Voting Ends: Sun Jun 19 2005
The Tanzerian Concept

The Nomadic Peoples of the Tanzerian concept believe in the right to have not only an assault weapon but a granade launcher as well. Grams, our national currency are scarce and we need to protect them from the somtime violent house robbers. Assault weapons and granade launchers are better than toxic weapons. What is the world comming too? :( :sniper:

HAHHAH! foolish man... banning assault weapons will only increase the demand for them! As for the territory of the great dominator - Ownership of assault weapons is not an option. you own one, or i send you to battle island!

I support this proposal, why do you need an assault weapon for self-defense or hunting or for any other reason? It would push them underground but which is worse, having them available but dificult to find and expensive or have them available to be puchased by anyone. Perhaps a high tax on the would be even better than a ban, then the revenue could be spent on law and order.

i have also made my propasal an anti terror law to make guns illegal unless by the goverments permission please vote for it

Fools! The Holy Empire of Seagrove requires all households (unless you're a minority, homosexual, or other registered deviants) to own firearms for national defense purposes. It works for Switzerland in real life, and so it shall work for us! Anyways, define "assault weapon". That's an ambiguous term.

The Confederacy of Sharp Steeled Knights does not approve. Their people love assualt weapons, flamethrowers and more. :mp5: :mp5:

The Great Dominator naturally disapproves.
I forgot who first said it, but - If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

Besides, weak government like unarmed citizens. They are easier to control.

So why AM I against banning them?
Because i can't go to sleep unless i am hearing the sounds of gunfire at night...
Letting me know that the natural order of things is being preseved.

Enn cannot support this as a result of the opening line. We Ennish do not believe in the right to bear arms, and cannot support any proposal that includes this 'right'.
