MMM and you say if americans did not have easy access to guns these figures would still happen ???.
So I look at my own nation who has had strong ( though I dont believe its just) gun control since 1996
Now the US lost 148,000 in the last five years according to these figures, and roughly the UK last ( only have figures from 2006) 2006 210, 2005 185, 2004 191, 2003 187, 2002 193.
Ban cars and doctors you say!!! even more fascinating please tell me how many car driving and doctors deliberately set out to kill someone ?
Guns dont kill people, people kil people I know that, but allowing morons to have guns causing far more bloodshed than stoping people having easy acess to guns does.

The SkS is listed. To reply to a previous poster..It will not save a single life. How is banning anything going to save a life? The weapons on the list classified as "assualt weapons" are a complete falsehood. All these weapons are just semi automatic weapons that cosmectically appear like thier military/ law enforcement counter parts. Apperance does not make them assualt weapons.An assualt weapon has a selectable fire rate capable of full auto and or 3-5 round burst, these are all single trigger pull, single fire semi automatic weapons. Back to the orginal question...how will banning these weapons save a single life? I would like to see a sensable, real world, verified answer to this please.
Effective immediately DOD Surplus, LLC, will be implementing new requirements for mutilation of fired shell casings. The new DRMS requirement calls for DOD Surplus personnel to witness the mutilation of the property and sign the Certificate of Destruction. Mutilation of the property can be done at the DRMO, if permitted by the Government, or it may be mutilated at a site chosen by the buyer. Mutilation means that the property will be destroyed to the extent prevents its reuse or reconstruction. DOD Surplus personnel will determine when property has been sufficiently mutilated to meet the requirements of the Government.

(Got that? From now on, remanufacturers of military brass will not be able to buy surplus brass from DOD–actually from Government Liquidators, llc.–the corporation that sells surplus materials for the U.S. government. At least, not in any form recognizable as once-fired brass ammunition.)
