In reply to: Local delagtes want specifics on pitched assault weapon ban »

December 30, 2012

Virgina tech shooter only had hand guns, and fired 170 shots before killing himself. He didn't use high capacity magazines either.
By definition an assault weapon is select fire, meaning full auto. Semi auto military style rifles are only a recent usage by spree killers (aurora, newtown, and ny.), yet this ban has been pushed for decades. Liberal garbage. try enforcing the laws we have, then add punishment for not securing firearms. I'm all for gun responsibility, and it starts with treating gun owners, manufacturers, etc like we aren't criminals when some nut goes bezerk.
