The common denominator in gun massacres is military-style weapons championed for profit, according to this article.

More murders are committed in this country with weapons that were stolen or ended up in the hands of someone who the law says can't have a gun! But fools like you are worried about the legal law abiding owners! Yep keep trying to make it harder for a guy who wants to protect his family to get a gun and soon only the ones with ill intentions will have them!

Tom Diaz's piece about "assault weapons" being the common denominator is flawed.He is failing to acknowledge the fact it is the most common weapon platform in the country.Logic would dictate that the most available gun would be the gun used in a shooting.In the days of the wild west the SAA Colt was the most prolific, so you would see that firearm being used in most shootings.The fact remains however that only a very very small percentage of AR-15s are ever used to commit killings or crime.The numbers actually point to the conclusion that it being in the hands of civilians is fairly safe.
