Some people are just hopeless.

Are you seriously telling me, that even after arguing with actual "gun nuts" for at least a couple weeks on this board alone, you are still utterly ignorant enough to claim that any "assault type rifle" shoots 10 rounds per second? Are you kidding me?

NRA Sets 1,000 Killed In School Shooting As Amount It Would Take For Them To Reconsider Much Of Anything

Are you looking at the news .....do you know that the US is the country where a child is more at risk than any other occidental countries to die from an accidental gunshot ! Usually from the family gun!

When we are speaking of identifying ignorance, this is true.

The AR-15 is being singled-out as a threat to the public because it is used in mass shootings.

The ignorant believe that this is because there is something about this weapon that makes it particularly suitable for that purpose.

The truth is any number of weapons could be used to shoot a large number of people.

The reason this one is so often involved is because it is the most popular rifle in America.

When loons decide to gather up all the firearms they can get their hands on, it is very likely an AR-15 will be present.

It is an effective weapon, but it doesn't make the victims any more dead than the illegal hand guns they use.

Your safe city (El Paso, Texas) is about 80% Hispanic and, according to your earlier posts, full of illegals and controlled by the cartels who use it as a major drug gateway to the interior of the US.

how many? when the feds and states get rid of their guns 1st.

restriction leads to registration which leads to confiscation which will lead to something you do not want.

And that is the problem: Your ignorance is astounding. And your refusal to learn anything about firearms is even more astounding. If you had any education in the matter, you wouldn't be saying what you are.
