Response to zipplewrath (Original post)

Wed Dec 19, 2012, 10:48 AM

1. Can you help with this, as far as terminology?

Does "high-capacity, rapid-fire firearms" (because, really, they're all "assault weapons," right, as far as being literal?) add more meaning to the discussion?

What is the proper terminology to be used for us to express the opinion that we don't feel handheld weapons of mass destruction -- with the ability to take out dozens or more people in a matter of minutes -- should be made available to the general public?

Thanks.
