  •  I found that title to be rather insulting (12+ / 0-)

    and the only thing in the diary that I didn't know already was the origin of "Flash in the Pan".
    But it was also irrelevant.
    I couldn't care less about the terminology, what worries me is the capability.
    If it can be used to put many bullets into many people in a short period of time, what you call it matters nada. Personally,  I call them slaughter weapons because that's what they are for and what they do. But go ahead and call them whatever you want, doesn't matter.
    At base, the easy availability of weapons that can massacre a room full of kids in 3 minutes must end, they should, in fact, be banned and confiscated. There I said it, CONFISCATED.
    At the very least, the ammunition for these weapons should not be available and possession of ammo for them should be considered intent to murder.
    Don't like it?
    Too damm bad.
    (Am I channeling the gunloons "conversational style" accurately?)
    Funny thing is, when this "conversation" started after Newtown, I was trying hard to keep my antipathy for guns in check, trying to find a solution that could be consensus, trying to believe that there were responsible gun owners that would see that this problem needs to be solved, that they'd be the best placed to solve it.
    But I have become convinced, particularly by the DKos gunloons, that such an animal doesn't exist, that they will block any reasonable solution out of narcissism and deep fears and will go to any lengths, be as dishonest as necessary, to do so.
    I want them disarmed.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
