Banning assault rifles will do no good. [View all]

Now wait a minute, before anyone gets all wound up, let me explain.

This is classified as a pistol.



So if assault rifles are banned, then what about these?
(Saw it in a Fleet & Farm store flyer, the PAP M92 x 39 is on sale, $559.)

Ok, so then we ban pistols?
No.
I own a pistol, a .22.

Then what? A criminal uses a hunting shotgun to rob someplace, so we ban shotguns?
(The sawed-off ones already are.)
Then rifles?

I say we treat guns like cars.
Register them, and those who want to use them will require a license.
