|Can just as easily harm someone too...|
Let me point out something on assault weapons: The definition is very broad as to include some pistols even.
Generally they have:
Well, that's about everything I own.
Let's go back to pre-gunpowder and the wars that were fought with swords and shields and the rapes that were committed at knife-point and the likes with their billions of dead and reeeeaaaaally quickly ask ourselves if the "Assault Weapons" are reaaaally the problem.....shall we?
If anything, I might suggest that Assault Weapons are safer to some degree because most people ignorant of guns can't figure them out enough to get them to work!
Given that with a lever action or a slide action firearm or even a double action revolver I can nearly keep pace with an Assault Weapon on target - enough to matter anyways in about anything I'd find or hope not to find myself in our wonderful town of Beaverton - watch this video then tell me whether it matters whether we restrict Assault Weapons and return to things like revolvers:
Besides, it takes 250,000 rounds to make one kill....if anything you ain't got a prayer of hitting anything and everyone should be getting assault weapons for Christmas presents and we should all be turning in our hammers and screwdrivers just to be safe.....
Think it matters if it has a detachable magazine and is semi-automatic with a pistol grip?
