    If the idiots at the NRA would get that and join with the rest of us with some pragmatic solutions to prevent guns getting to those who would misuse them, then we could get somewhere?

    But NO-OOOOOOO! They're a bunch of paranoid assholes who won't budge an inch off their backwards all-or-nothing stance. The blood of that 9-year-old girl is on their hands. And anyone who refuses to even have the conversation.
    I dont know...Id say the blood on the hands belongs to the individual that did the killing. However the blood on the shoes belongs to people dancing and splashing in it while they use this tragedy to pursue their own political agenda. Talk about some sick twisted ****s...

    the hand guns are too easily concealed ... that makes them prime weapons of choice for offensive rather than defensive purposes. semi/auto also have an offensive purpose
    combined with that would be absolute enforcement of laws prohibiting the carrying of handguns - with stiff prison time penalties for those found carrying those weapons
    yes, then the only ones carrying handguns would be those intending to perpetrate crime
    eliminate victimless crime laws and then refill the prisons with those who insist on carrying handguns

    Thank you for honestly admitting your inexperience with this issue. I'll be glad to politely address your question.

    It's obvious that a single shot weapon takes significantly longer to fire than a semi-auto. I assume you know this and this is why you think that it would be safer to do away with semi-autos. Obviously the semi-auto fires each time you pull the trigger, whereas the single shot must be cocked before each shot.

    Now, a typical assault happens in a matter of seconds... not minutes... and from a distance of less than 7 yards. People who are not trained in self-defense often claim they didn't even see it coming. Training can certainly improve your reaction times. Without the ability to react quickly, you put yourself in extreme danger, even if you are carrying a gun. When a gun is fired in self-defense, statistics show that firing about 3 shots is fairly average to end the confrontation. So...three shots in a matter of seconds... I guarantee you that in the time you fire a single shot pistol and miss with your first shot, the bad guy will be able to close the 7 yard distance. The ability to react fast and fire quickly is what protects someone in a life threatening situation.

    In other words, you are trolling and baiting. Are there not rules about that on DP?

    the same thing that stops them now, since i do not carry

    but their number would diminish once it became illegal for them to possess small arms; they would become easily identifiable as criminals, which is not the instance today

    What? Total submission?

    Most crimes are committed with illegal guns, making all guns illegal wont change that fact.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
