I really wish everyone would stop using the term 'assault riffle' - 'assault weapon' when discussing firearms such as the AR-15. A simple handgun
is an 'assault weapon' ... it can be used as a weapon, in an assault. ALL FIREARMS are considered a weapon of assault if used in the manner. Adding
the word 'assault' to the word 'riffle' just makes the firearm appear 'scary' and it works. Knife + Stabbing = Knife is Assault Weapon. Bat +
Clubbing = Bat is Assault Weapon. Do we call a 9mm in a crime, he used an assault handgun ?
The fact that they call the AR-15 a 'Military weapon' is laughable. Some are careful in saying 'Military Style' but only because of how it looks.
Imagine if our troops used an AR-15 on the ground. Not sure we would get any upper hand on a bad situation
Lets talk about this need to ban high capacity clips.
Are you kidding me ! What difference does it make to ANYONE who would use a firearm to kill, whether or not he has a 10 round clip or 30. Anyone who
knows guns knows that changing out a clip is not some process in which takes too much time away from shooting. I have personally seen regular gun
users change clips so fast that there is little time gap between. The only reason a 30 round clip is wanted is to not have to carry around so many
clips. Does anyone here think that really matters to ANYONE who wants to do harm such as what we have seen as of late. If someone is intent on
killing, it doesn't matter how many rounds or clips, they will get the job done and there is little anyone can do about the situation. An area full
of people who have no defense versus a person with 2 - 30 round clips or 6 - 10 round clips. Doesn't matter.
This all comes down to what we have all been told for years. RESPONSIBILITY STARTS IN THE HOME !!!
