Our founding fathers must be rolling in their graves while regretting not wording the Second Amendment right to bear arms more judiciously. Specifically, it was meant for the protection of the population against foreign enemies and not to facilitate mass killings of our own citizens. But once the genie was out of the bottle, it couldn’t be put back in. Even if the sale of assault weapons was banned, there are already so many of them in circulation that no significant dent could be made in the slaughter rate. The only purpose it would serve would be to ramp up the black market activity and deprive the various government entities of tax revenue.
Bottom line, we’ve made our bed and now must lie in it.
