    And my sole point is that modern firearms are older than you or me, and older than my dead grandparents in fact.  

    I'll grant you that firearms are highly effective killing tools.  That's why they exist.  But you're a century too late if you're trying to but the genie back in that bottle.

      on fully automatic weapons since 1934 and nobody's shot up a bank with a Thompson or a BAR in as long as anyone can remember.

      Fully automatics have been around almost as long as semi automatics and we've had no trouble controlling them.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

        However, we haven't been controlling semiautomatics.  Or revolvers.  And now it's a century later.  These guns aren't going anywhere, and Americans won't tolerate trying to "dry up the supply" as it is.  You need a new plan.  Fortunately, I've got one for you.
