I tried telling them the same thing and they won't listen, they believe that if they can own guns they will shoot the shooters, which blatantly hasn't happened over the recent shootings.
So get ready to face a whole bunch of cowboys.edit on 14-12-2012 by DAZ21 because: (no reason given)

The facts are armed citizens stop more crime then all Law enforcement in the country combined. gee why don't they report that on the news? No agenda there...This is usually because they are the intended victim. They have a 97% success rate in stopping their would be assailant . On the other hand unarmed people have a 97% rate of being a victim and ending up harmed or dead. Which odds would you prefer?
Oh...and you probably should provide some sourcing for this. Otherwise, we'll all have to assume that you're pulling this stuff out of your *ss.

What do you mean by High Capacity? There is nothing wrong with Assualt Rifles. If that is what you are referring .
Assault rifles are a problem, and need some consideration for stricter regulations, but not a ban.
high-capacity: magazines, clips etc need to be banned.
You don't need a 100 round clip for hunting do you?
It should be extremely difficult to get these items, and for most people it should be illegal to own them.
Will that stop it? ... NO and neither will repealing the second amendment, but something has to be done, as a matter of principle.
Killers are going to kill, and anything that can make it more difficult for them should be done, especially anything that can possibly prevent mass killings like those that have recently happened. Common sense approaches to gun regulations that people can LIVE with.
The amount of rednecks in this topic who have an un-usual affection for guns is amazing. How can anyone defend guns being legal after the events of yesterday. How many school massacres will it take?

Because if a teacher would of had a gun in that desk or the school security had a gun the losses would of been less, since he could of just went in there with a knife like the china dude proved.
