Where I draw the line is you or me owning a gun that spews out hundreds of rounds of ammunition in a few seconds. NO CIVILIAN needs those.....no one.

When is the last time one of those weapons was used to commit a mass shooting in the United States?

If only the mighty NRA and our Lawmakers thought the same.
We wouldn't have to wake up to headlines like the past 2 days.
WHY ARE THESE KINDS OF GUNS WANTED AND NEEDED?
Criminals, I can see why they want these.
But law abiding licensed gun owners who arent crazed criminals and carry to protect themselves and family.
Why do they insist on not banning these kinds of mass murdering firearms.?

So in other words, the”good guy with a gun stops a bad guy” is complete bullsh$t and deflection rhetoric?

Probably because any firearm can be a potential mass murdering firearm.

It is disturbing that all the mass shooters look just like me
Not an angry black man or Muslim extremist in the crowd
Is it something in the water?

Then you're not paying attention, because there have been both.
