I have never understood the anti's fixation on SA rifles. I remember when one holder of that brain trust described a bunch of physical features
(including a "barrel shroud" - whatever that means) which supposedly made SA firearms more lethal. In reality, these firearms are used in such a small
percentage of homicides, they're truly irrelevant to the current public discourse.
I know California's latest attempt is pitiful. Have you seen some of their new "featureless" weapons? They look pretty ridiculous, which of course was
their goal. For some reason, they believe the weapon's appearance is directly related to its lethality.
In reality, their entire focus should be shifted to the weapon's owner - which is 100% the source of the chaos and death they claim to be fighting. It
is pretty disturbing that deaths related to firearm use (they like to include suicide, accident and justified homicide in this list) are the only ones
they care about. There are other things out there killing far more people: fast food, tobacco, auto accidents, etc. For some reason, they don't want
to address these issues, focusing instead of the very minimal number of deaths related to firearms.
