    Not surprising, it is pretty obvious you're pushing an agenda and have no intrest in the truth.

    Can you back up that claim?

    I'm not and never will claim that all crime will magically cease if certain assault weapons are banned. Thats just another strawman that the gun rightys have created so they have something to argue against.
    My point is that if someone wants to kill themselves or someone else, they can find ample ways if a gun is not available.

    What truth, Goshin? I showed you how crime/homicide stats are manipulated. When NYC crime rate went down, it brought down the entire national crime/homicide rate average, as well. But did NYC's crime rate go down because Bloomberg was confiscating guns with "stop and frisk" or were the NYPD manipulating their stats to save their department's reputation? Take your pick, neither supports your arguement that the crime/homicide rate is going down because people have more guns for self defense.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    Soooo.....14 pages in, has anyone been able to define what an assault weapon is, and list some examples of their like, that are legal to buy in the US by the average Joe?

    In the attempt to label a weapon as anything but a weapon the term is becoming an oxymoron. All rifles can assault you, some with less ability than others. They should use the term tactical weapon, full auto or machine gun. Look at a shotgun, shoots multiple rounds all at once. Make it a pump and it's semi auto. How about mixing some fuel oil and fertilizer for a kill radius? There are too many ways to mass murder with common items than to keep harping on the method.

    It was a confluence of errors, problems and events that led to the incident, not one thing only.

    Exactly Grip. Assuming that my aiming is good (which it is), a well-placed shot with my Ruger 10/22 can take out just about anyone, unless he has an extraordinary amount of fat on his chest. I wouldn't want it to be my only rifle, by any means, but much is determined by skill over caliber or mag capacity, and looks don't mean a thing in the gun world.

    Nope, all we've gotten so far is doublespeak. ie: "If you don't know the precise terminology and what all the accessories are, then how can you ban guns that kill massive amounts of innocent people?" So I asked the gun righty's, then what weapons should be banned? Answer: <crickets>
