arma virumque cano (et alia)
One has to wonder how many mass shootings took place during the assault weapon ban. Columbine comes to mind. Plus, homicides using a rifle seem to be declining,https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2014/crime-in-the-u.s.-2014/tables/expanded-homicide-data/expanded_homicide_data_table_8_murder_victims_by_weapon_2010-2014.xls Also observe the very low number of homicides using a rifle even in the year of the most homicides. And of course, it might be all moot since the majority of Americans now seem to oppose an assault weapon ban,"A majority of Americans oppose banning assault weapons for the first time in more than 20 years of ABC News/Washington Post polls"http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/now-oppose-assault-weapons-ban-doubts-stopping-lone/story?id=35778846
The statistics for crime involving your misnomered "assault weapons" does not support your assertion.
Seriously? You are suggesting that bans on anything are effective? That's some mighty sloppy thinking.orlin sellers
Common sense and three Pinocchios worth of "honesty".http://www.aim.org/don-irvine-blog/washington-post-fact-checker-bill-clinton-goes-over-the-top-on-mass-shootings/
Never mind that, TS--that's just the rabidly pro-gun rights bias of the Washington Post talking ;-).
Think there's a connection?I don't care who you are--that's some funny shit.
