More than 95% of the murderous acts by criminals in America do not use assault weapons and so was the case in Newtown. The effort of Obama to use the tragedy and to help the terrorists and criminals by removing self protection guns from good law abiding American is unconstitutional and aimed at increasing the dependency of the American people on the government. Nevertheless, the American people demand their right of the 2nd Amendment to be free and have the right to defend their own lives from criminal and terrorists when the local police are limited and would save only 10-20% of the victims that do not have guns and being attacked in remote areas. Freedom and liberty is not for sale by the American people even if the liberal Democratic communists of America that are Mozlem brother terrorist sympathizers demand it.

The first problem here is this Fathers emotional outpouring and total lack of reason. Of all the people qualified to speak on whether "assault rifles" should be banned, those directly affected like this parent are too close to the issue to be credible. He sees the issue through his pain not his reasoning.

Decisions made on emotion are rarely good ones.

The odds of an innocent person being shot with an assault weapon are insignificant compared to the odds of an innocent person being killed by an illegal alien. We already have laws against illegal aliens yet without enforcement people are still being killed. What makes anybody think that banning assault weapons will actually decrease the number of murders? I do not own an assault weapon and I donít want one and I see no need for one, but why waste time fighting over making new laws that may save a few lives over many years when we could be enforcing laws that exist and will save many lives every year?

You more likely to be beaten to death or shot with a shotgun than a semiautomatic defense rifle.

These "Republican opponents" ought to get their job done, before worrying their betters.

It was orchestrated to manipulate the emotions because they know most people do not think with reason, but "feel" with their emotions.,

where can I buy an assault weapon with large capacity magazines ? I need something for protection since US gubbmint law enforcement thinks throwing jail doors open for thousands of criminal illegal aliens is a real peachy idea. I for some reason don't think they have the legal US citizens safety in mind with that big a bonehead move, but I sure as heck want to be armed since law enforcement is a fairly large impediment to citizen safety.

Assault weapons are used in about one-fifth of one percent of all violent crimes and one percent in gun crimes. The irrational demand for a ban is a reaction to the fact that we have no clue what so ever how to stop the psychopathic killers our society has spawned.

Fathers grief goes without saying, but that does not give this administration the right to ursurp the 2nd Amendment anymore than the 1st.

Earlier the Senate convened a panel made up of victims of gun violence, I suggest you watch the following video to get a true sense of 'victim-hood' by being denied our rights to protect our selves. Sen 'Fiendstein' had her head handed to her on a platter.....

This video sez it all.......

This video from foxnews is just about as good as it gets about your right to keep and bear arms.

You asked the question. Why don't you look it up yourself? We all know that the odds of a person in the United States beiing shot by an assult weapon is lower than the odds of being struck by lightning or winning the Mega millions lottery but having a number would be nice just to show what a waste of time and resources trying to ban assult weapons is while millions of illegal aliens are running free and killing thousands of people in this country every year.

Zero.
Massacres are perpetrated by the perpetrators. The tools may change but the results are the same.

I am not sure what an attemt is but if you are to lazy or uneducated to search for the information you seek then admit it. Why not contact one of the groups or politicians pushing for the ban and ask them?
I could care less what the percentage of mass murders in the United States involve assult weapons. So why would I spend time looking up that information for you? I know that compared to the number of deaths caused by illegal aliens who should not even be in the country, mentally ill people who are unsupervised due to lack of resources and a fear of violating their rights, people who are taking "anti-depressants" pushed by our pharmaceutical industry with the help of the USDA that cause them to commit suicide or murder and many other threats the number is insignificant.
As long as you are looking, how about finding the percentage of mass murders with assault weapons that were committed by a person without a mental illness?
