Criminals will still be able to get assault rifles. [View all]

I am so tired of hearing that one, over and over. None of the recent mass shooters that I can recall...from Va.Tech, the Aurora, CO shooter, the mall shooter from last week...and now Adam Lanza had prior criminal records that I can tell. They were all from fairly middle class families... and they all seemed unlikely to know how to buy assault rifles off the black market.

Yes, I am sure SOME criminals will still be able to obtain assault rifles...that's what criminals do...but, can't we at least make an effort to keep the damned things away from non-criminals who snap for whatever reason?

This country has gone nuts.
