Very true. Assault weapons are used in something like 2% of gun crimes, or is it some smaller perentage of gun crimes?
Stupid is as stupid does.
"These are weapons that will shred your venison before you eat it, or go through the walls of your apartment when you're trying to defend yourself,'' said Jonathan Lowy, director of the Legal Action Project at the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, arguing that they're "made for mass killing, but not useful for law-abiding citizens."
Don't you get tired of regurgitating that **bleep**? Seriously? They're designed to shoot rapidly. What is being shot at is still a decision made by a person. The person is the problem, not the rapidity of fire.
Your analogy doesn't hold up. First, Cars cannot be used in a defensive posture (regarding reducing vehicular deaths. Guns can. Second, and more importantly, a perp would think twice if he knew that people around him were carrying. Gun free zones have the opposite effect, like most so-called screwy liberal concoctions. Don't be deaf to reason and blind to proof.
