    Mostly, I just use it to cut down straw men… that I constructed… to cut down in a heavy firefight… after I’m sure that they are unarmed and indefensible.

    A kid was just arrested in Utah for bringing a gun to school to protect against shooters. Fortunately, they took it out of school. Because it turns out, more guns do not make a place safer. They make it more dangerous. Remember the Wall Street shooting? Imagine if instead of trained police popping off and wounding innocent bystanders, it had been your average gun nuts. Or imagine if the Aurora Theater had been packed with people packing heat, each shooting at everyone else who drew a gun. The solution is taking away the weapons of mass destruction, not in killing more people.

    to dumb to really make a comment on except how stupid this is and how weak of an anti gun argument the loony left has.

    In other words, you have no counter argument.

    You know, Clinton’s assault weapon ban expired in 2004, and Obama’s election caused a rush on gun buying, particularly assault weapons and high capacity ammo magazines. I think the empirical evidence shows that more guns is not the answer.
    On the other hand, countries with more retrictive gun laws have fewer crimes in general, since guns make committing crimes easier.

    There are 250,000,000 privately owned guns in the USA. They aren’t going to go away. Instead of dumping mentally ill people on the street for lack of profit in treating them, we should concentrate on helping those who need it, and punish those who commit any crime whatsoever with a weapon.

    If you want to see how well a society functions when everybody has full access to all weapons, look no further than Iraq.

    This posturing by Congress continues because it’s easier than funding a program to treat the mentally ill. Might mean fewer bombs or ships. And after all, the mentally ill don’t make “campaign contributions” or hire K Street lobbyists, so as long as issues about guns (in the world’s biggest arms seller country) can distract the populace, why not.

    Unfortuntely people would not understand that till it actually happened. As in you can´t make an omelet till you break a few eggs.

    No, you’re just an idiot.

    In other words, you agree with Harley and, like him, have no counter argument.

    you are a piece of work, arent’ you. it wassn’t wall street, it was 34th street in front of macy’s flagship store, and the police shot and killed the better part of 9 innocent bystanders, the “shooter” didn’t shoot anyone on the street. I’m not condemning the police, they HAD to do what they did, it’s a damned shame how it turned out, and that the officers have to live with it.

    you also seem quite bright and you know that whether ‘high powered rifles" or “simply semi-auto carbines” is a poor veiled attempt to minimize the damage weapons we call assault rifles can do, do do, and are INTENDED to do. It is specious to try to distract the discussion with such BS.

    your charactarizations of native americans as “savages” is just inflamatory, ignorant, and over the top. If you were on the receiving end that they were, and knew the history,you’d know it’s not too difficult to determine who the ‘savages’ were.

    I’ve been asserting that banning automatic weapons will reduce the death counts in mass shootings. I saw a link from another poster showing that there are fewer deaths when a shooter is stopped by civilians than when police stop the shooting. This is true, but most of the shooters were stopped by unarmed civilians! I used the data provided & analyzed it to see what the average death toll is by weapon type is.

    Weapon / Average Deaths Per Incident
    Automatic Rifle / 9.5
    Automatic Pistol / 9.8
    Rifle or Shotgun / 3
    Revolver/Non Auto Handgun / 1.8

    Anecdotally, there were several cases where armed civilians either failed to subdue the shooter or shot bystanders. In most of the cases where civilians armed or unarmed were successful in subduing the shooter, the shooter was not armed with an automatic weapon, or the gun jammed. I think it’s obvious that the lack of automatic weapons gives a greater opportunity for civilians to intervene or flee.

    “Amereica faced attacks by armed savages bent on the killing of innocent people in our past.”

    Is this satire? I mean, really… your post reads like the work of a drunken Stephen Colbert ‘wannabe’.

    “On the same day as the Sandy Hook massacre, an evil man attacked 22 children with a knife.”

    And killed none. If you thought before you typed you’d realize bringing up the incident in China makes your argument weaker.
