According to the FBI, more people are killed with hands and feet than all rifles combined. We’d be safer if we’d just lock everyone up.
The fantasy is believing that an assault weapons ban would do any good either. You are considering on minute inanimate variable in your though process. There is no empirical evidence that supports the theory that an assault weapons ban would do ANYTHING to help. Even the politicians are very careful to use the word MAY.
Don’t you remember the Clinton era assault weapons ban?
Oh it’s really really rare? According to the FBI, far more people are killed with hands and feet than rifles. Homicide via assault rifle is what’s really rare. Where do you get your stats?
We did try it… it didn’t help.
Its funny how you say a gun ban will prevent a lot of deaths as matter of factly even though there is NO empirical evidence that supports this claim (in fact empirical evidence suggests the contrary). Even if you listen to the silly politicians, they say it MAY help. None of them ever say it will prevent deaths because that would be pure speculation.
Yeah lets go back to the time when the weak are powerless to protect themselves from the strong. All guns do is level the playing field. How else do you expect a 100 lb girl to protect herself from a 200 lb assailant? Little can of mace? Jiu Jitsu? Quit living in a fairy-tale land where you blame inanimate objects for the evil doings of evil people. I suppose advancements in chemistry are to blame for yesterday’s bombings?
All guns do is level the playing field. No matter what someone comes at you with you can defend yourself.A100 lb girl can defend herself from an attack froma200 lb man, withagun. Tell me how else that girl is going to protect herself.Alittle can of mace? Jiu Jitsu? You guys live in fairy-tale land were you think inanimate objects cause evil.
Stop with the endless psycho babble bullshit. Are we going to blame advances in chemistry for yesterday’s bombings?
