38. I've discussed these types of bans at length with people who watched the results of the previous

assault rifle ban, and they told me that it's useless. The high-capacity magazines simply sell out whenever this type of legislation comes up and then there's even more of them on the street being sold at gun shows and privately. The assault weapon bans just lead to more innovation by gun makers to get around the rules. Everything related to restriction of these weapons leads to paranoia and more sales. It's horrible.

The answer to gun violence in schools is to use a combination of safety measures... perhaps bulletproof entry door "airlocks" with metal detectors that lock entrants inside until they can be cleared through bulletproof lexan windows. Perhaps schoolroom doors that can be released by electromagnets like elevator-area fire doors are now, and panic rooms available throughout the hallways for kids and teachers trapped outside classrooms after they lock.
