Would an assault weapons ban work?

Dec 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

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.

You are full of cr@p, GayGuy.

If you stepped into my office, I would have told you so before you got to your third sentence.

Then I would have slapped the snot out of you, kicked you in your grapes, and tossed you out on your ass into the hall.

So let's not pretend you had time to give someone a speech.

Fact is a majority of those who died committed suicide.
Yes.

So?

Almost all are killed with a firearm- they a moment of weakness, they are left alone with that gun that daddy left unlocked in a drawer, and then they are dead.

People do not survive from suicide attempts using a firearm.

PS: the children in Sandy Hook did not commit suicide.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. Your inability to learn facts and skills to apply them is spectacular!

I was visiting with my state Senator. I told him I think it is time we mobilize honest people to fight the dishonest leftists. My idea is to develop a sheet that will list the state officials representing my area, the federal representatives, those who are the worst offenders of our rights and freedoms, and how to look up what is going on in our state and federal governments. Provide all the contact info. Copy and pass out as many as I can.
It is time we have to quit just meeting in the gun shop or coffee shop and griping about what is going on. Maybe it is too late , but we owe it to our grandchildren to do everything possible.
Oh , my Senator and I also discussed the quality of various match triggers for the AR.
To only find comfort, and safety, in arms is very, very sad indeed. Ronald Reagan was pro-gun control because he feared the armed Black Panthers. The Ku Klux Klan was founded in order to seize guns from free blacks. I don't buy the notion of Second Amendment absolutists that individually-owned guns are the best defense against the imposition of tyrannical rule in America, if anything it’s comical, I think we're pretty safe from tyrannical rule.

Yes it has moron, under a different name M16! You can call them whatever you like, when a rifle is capable of killing or injuring 80 people in less than 60 seconds in a movie theater, call it ‘full’ call it ‘semi’— it's semantics and a mere technicality!!!
Liberal logic also gave us gun free zones. Do you think the American soldier would exchange his M16 for an AR15 if he had the choice?
Me neither.

The NRA gave the Connecticut killer the assault weapon and the massacre magazines that he used to put ten and eleven bullet holes in each child.

Americans aren't blaming the video games for this, Donglicker.
