17. Really?

You guys are so emotionally wrapped up into your gun devotion that you lose all ability to read simple sentences

From the OP;

Beyond the issue of personal weapons is the ability to own weapons that have the capacity to kill a hundred people in a few minutes. If his weapons hadn't jammed we might not have 72 wounded but 100 dead.

Yes it cost Democrats the Congress. So did backing Civil Rights Act of 1964. It gave us Richard Nixon.

So we have learned from it. We aren't going to do it at this time.

So there is no stated goal to "ban" anything.

It was stated in languag simple enough for a 3rd grader.

And yet you cannot read it and understand it.

You cannot be this obtuse in the rest of your business so why is it that when it comes to talking about guns you brain stops working.

Even your language becomes infantile, "Double dog dare".

Please don't respond and further embarass yourself with your childish comments.

The only way to make it any simpler that I am not advocating a ban on anything, I just don't want the gun fetish people to think that the technical discussion of whether it is an 'assault weapon', a 'rifle' or 'semi automatic' is simply adolescent.

The only metric that is relevent is the lethality of the weapon.

To make it any simpler for you to be able to understand it I will have to use crayons.
