Would an assault weapons ban work?

Dec 17, 2012 Full story: The Washington Post 3,769

When Adam Lanza shot 26 people in Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, he used a Bushmaster AR-15 , a popular style of semiautomatic rifle that can rapidly fire multiple high-velocity rounds, according to law enforcement officials.

Excellent rebuttal by a rightwinger, as expected. Brilliant.:)
I'm sure that you knows...non of this really matters. Even IF the gov't bans all guns..and all gun ownership....most WILL NOT give up their guns! Guns will be hidden until either needed..or until those moronic liberals are out of office. Just like before..when the bans go out...we will buy a ton of stuff!!!!

You can't own a fully-auto ANYTHING without filling out a LOT of paperwork, genius.

Modern definition of assault rifle is a 'semi-automatic, military style rifle-type weapon.' It's an imitation of a military weapon, intended to give the semi-impotent NRA member owning it a major boner.:)

The more that politicians talk about gun regulations or bans, the more the NRA, the gun industry they lobby for, and gun shops use fearmongering to sell weapons.

There, corrected it for you. You're basically correct, though. It IS all about sales.

Then why are legislators trying to prohibit an imitation?
Semi-automatic does not equate to fully automatic
Military "style" refers to plastic gizmo's, sorta like fuzzy dice on your rear view mirror ot accent trim on your house

The question remains - Why are legislators trying to prohibit imitations?

One was used at Sandy Hook, do you really have to ASK?

Personally I don't think such a ban would solve the problem, I'm just indicating what an 'assault rifle' IS. I'd rather see oversized clips for handguns banned, if you're going to ban something. And things like registration, background checks, and ability to trace weapons would mean even more.

No assault weapons were used there.
Lanza used semi-auto pistols, and had an AR in his car trunk, but didn't have any assault weapons

You're a liar and a bullshitter. He used the Bushmaster AR-15.

In fact, even RIGHT-wing sites know this is bullshit:

http://www.texasgopvote.com/issues/stop-big-g...

"I contacted the CT State Police for further clarification. Lt. Paul Vance told me the Bushmaster was, in fact, fired inside the school and used to kill all 26 people who died that day.

I asked Vance about the magazine capacity of the handguns that were found inside the school. He said he did not have that information, but confirmed that the shooter had numerous magazines with him inside the school.

It was very clear in speaking with him that they are frustrated with the rumors about this case and the manipulation of the tragedy for political purposes by both sides of the gun control debate."

The Bushmaster AR-15 is an assault weapon, fool. Now apologize for your error.
