13. I know any details or facts are just more NRA talking points but ...

If you waited for about 10 seconds and read and think before you type, you might actually learn something about what you are trying to deride.

The story in NOLA is unusual because it involves semi-auto rifles in a home invasion. That's very, very rare as a criminal activity, anywhere. Rifles in Illinois were only used 3 times last year in any kind of crime, about 2.8% overall in the US in 2011. Get it? Very rare.

You said ... "the same thing happens in Chicago and NY".

We're saying, no it doesn't, since semi autos of any kind are completely banned in both cities and even handguns were banned up until last year.

Nothing you said is true, unless of course the type of firearm involved doesn't matter to you and they are all just "Boomsticks".

And if that's the case why try and ban one type over another anyway?
