    is in #2.

    An assault weapons ban with teeth that addresses all the weapons that can fire dozens of bullets in very few seconds
    Anything that is semi-automatic could do exactly what the Bushmaster did in that school.  A smaller magazine could have meant more reloading, but semi-auto is semi-auto.

    An 'assault weapons ban' sounds all fine and dandy, but what you would really need is a 'semi-automatic ban'.  This is largely the reason that the first assault weapon's ban didn't work.  But you are never going to get a semi-automatic weapons ban passed.  It just won't happen.  Taking guns in this country back to pre-world war I isn't realistic.
