I am for banning anything above a hunting rifle or shotgun including handguns which is what we have.

The weapons in question—including the Colt AR-15, a semiautomatic version of the M-16 machine gun used by our armed forces, the Uzi, and the Tec-9 pistol, whose manufacturer's advertisements hailed its "fingerprint-resistant" finish—have been used in countless murders such as the Stockton schoolyard and Columbine High School shootings.

    Opponents of the assault weapons ban often argue that the ban only outlawed certain weapons because of their "cosmetic features" and not because they are inherently more dangerous than other weapons. This is simply not true."

    So, you define assault type weapons as being those preferred by criminals? There are no other descriptor or criteria? All I'm trying to do is narrow down exactly the characteristics of certain guns we want banned.

    Societal evolution is slower if people just sit and accept the violence around them.

    Vast majority people that play these games live on their lives as law abiding citizens, not shooting up public places. The issue isn't COD, Halo, or the latest gory movie, no, it's people with a few screws loose.

    ?????? I provided a listing of the specific guns. Here, I'll give you this list again, "the Colt AR-15, a semiautomatic version of the M-16 machine gun used by our armed forces, the Uzi, and the Tec-9 pistol.

    What about those weapons causes them to end up on the banned list?

    The issue is NOT video games nor guns.

    The issue IS crazy people.
    og fuys? You mean 'of guys' right?

    Anyway, whoever is influenced by video games needs to suffer the wrath of the death penalty. Lms

    Video games should be banned because they are such a huge time suck, not because somebody who shot a bunch of people played them.
