  •  Assault rifles are built for the military. (3+ / 0-)

    And they're meant for human combat.

    "Assault weapons" is a bullshit term that describes scary looking rifles that don't have the same capability as their military counterparts. They aren't made to kill people faster or with more efficiency; if they were, they wouldn't be using an intermediately powered cartridge.

      What percentage of the population is mentally unstable?  What percentage of that population can be provoked into violence?  What percentage of the population is oppressed?  Is affected by bigotry--hatred?  How many are paranoid?  How many jump to the wrong conclusions?  How many have road rage?  Do you want to be around all these people while they are fully armed--with sufficient ammo to kill scores of people?
      My plan to get gun control laws is to play into the hands of the bigots.  A movement should be started to supply AK-47s to African Americans and Spanish speaking people.  They would then stroll down Phoenix, or LA, or NYC, proudly displaying their favorite hunting instrument.  Wouldn't want to be a cop there, but, you wouldn't mind.

      Apres Bush, le deluge.
