59. Despite your opinion of what they are designed for,
that is not what they are being used for. If they were being used for that purpose, it would seem there must be very few of them in the hands of the public. That isn't the case, though. Americans own millions of semi auto AR's and AK's but they are rarely ever used in a murder involving firearms. FBI statistics show that rifles of *any* type are rarely ever used for murder. It's almost always a handgun that is used in murders involving firearms. Knives are used far more often than rifles for murdering people. Should we ban those as well?
