    You have to be specific like this:
    The Criminal Code states that a prohibited firearm is:

    a handgun with a barrel length of 105 mm (4.1 inches) or less;
    a handgun designed or adapted to discharge 25 or 32 calibre ammunition;
    a rifle or shotgun that has been altered to make it less than 660 mm (26 inches) in overall length;
    a rifle or shotgun that has been altered to make the barrel length less than 457 mm (18 inches) where the overall firearm length is 660 mm (26 inches) or more;
    an automatic firearm and a converted automatic firearm;
    any firearm prescribed as prohibited.

    So, then, a full auto rifle, but with only a 5 round clip, should be OK, right? I mean, the MOST it can kill is 5 people, but realistically, it's full auto, and unless those 5 people are REALLY bunched up, and the shooter is REALLY lucky, all 5 are NOT going to be hit...so, it can't kill a "lot" of people before reloading. So, it's fine.

    What do you mean by reloading? A clip, or one bullet at a time?

    That's actually what most guns are limited to here.

    Well, books will make for good toilet paper when the economy collapses, but we should phase out movies. I recommend we start with anything with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Nick Cage, and anybody who ever worked for the Disney Channel.

    No sure the point you are trying to make. Its my understanding that fully automatic weapons are already illegal in the US.

    What do you mean by reloading? A clip, or one bullet at a time?
    I am talking about the shooters ability to kill large numbers of people without changing mags.

    So you believe that small magazines = small body counts?

    Do you think large capacity magazines are of no advantage?

If the child or person is NT (neurologically typical) then this holds. If they are mentally ill (NOT DD) or have some other neurological disorder which makes them prone to anger or violence who knows.

    Right now as far as I can see there is too much conflicting information to know for sure what was with this person.
    No, listing the sources is your job. Especially since the actual research suggests the exact opposite conclusion.

    Harvard researchers: Violent video games OK for kids | Crave - CNET
    Harvard Researchers: Playing Violent Video Games Does Not Make Kids More Violent

    The Harvard study is the most conclusive and shows no connection whatsoever between violent media and acts of violence. Here's some more.

    Study: Kids Unaffected by Violent Games | Game|Life | Wired.com

    Literally all of the credible evidence shows no causal connection between violent media and acts of violence.

    Next time you want to make an assertion, do your homework. Otherwise you look like an idiot. And a liar, since you tried to pretend that you didn't have to back up your argument and looked like you knew it was wrong.

    Yes, consistent exposure to simulated violence will desensitize a person to future simulated violence. Oh, you meant real violence? Sorry, only real violence desensitizes you to real violence. Only people who already have serious mental issues can't tell the two apart.

    So your attempt to reduce the killings is for the government to kill more people?

    Seriously, our media depicts the world around us. It doesn't cause it.

    Is the only difference between an acceptable murder weapon, and an unnacetpable massacre weapon, clip capacity? Is that the defining detail to you?
