Just wait until the NRA begins defending those swell new personal flamethrowers.

It is time to reinstate the AWB from 1994. During that time gun homicides from MASS SHOOTINGS fell significantly, some years posting ZERO homicides. When the ban was lifted in 2004, gun homicides from MASS SHOOTINGS rose and have been rising ever since. I have to cap the word MASS SHOOTINGS, because as Brummett has pointed out gun nuts try to confuse the metrics, focusing on overall gun deaths.
...
Gun deaths overall did not drop because the AWB addressed only a small portion of the gun inventory. But that portion is the weapon of choice of mass shootings. That has proven to be the case with the numbers during the AWB ban and with numbers from other countries. Those ban assault weapons and see far fewer mass shootings than the US. In fact. the US surpasses entire continents in mass shooting homicides year after year.

Meanwhile, in democrat-governed, gun-free zone Chicago over the President's Day weekend, there were 8 people murdered and 30 people wounded.

In other news that we probably won't see covered in this paper, The Democrats flipped another house seat last night. In a district which trump won by almost 50 pts. in the 2016 elections, a former schoolteacher who once held the seat took it back from the repubs. This marks the 37th state house to flip since trump won. 11.6.18

More lies from moz who parrots the lies of the idiot in chief in the WH. Chicago is not a gun-free zone and does not have the nation's strictest gun laws.

The Republicans are owned by the NRA, and the other more rabid group. They want us to believe that corporations are people. They are not. They are owned by people. But in saying and ruling that way the dark money flows into the Republican Party. We must understand that OK being a red state for so long has really benefited greatly, for example the schools pretty much ran out of money so they had to go to a 4 day school week, among other great deeds thanks to the Republican Party of OK. I will state again, having been a life long gun owner and hunter, and having hunted everything except, bear, elk, and animals in Africa, an AR15 is not needed for hunting, nor was it's design made for hunting.
Another thoughtful article John, of course the ignorant will be on you like flies on honey. However, we must remember, that some of them are about as useful as a fly.

They prefer them because they think they look like Rambo while they're killing people. Perhaps we should study why people kill vs. how they kill. Treat the symptom, ignore the disease.

What lies, RB? Did I say anything about the toughest gun laws in America?
Chicago DOES have a total ban on firearms.

Actually it doesn’t moz. Yet another false piece of info from you. I’ll let you do the research to see how WRONG you are.

RBear being dishonest, again. First, the definition of "mass shootings" changed to fit the liberal narrative. Second, he attempts to say the AWB was THE reason for the statistical variance, which is patently unproven. Third, a guy named John Lott performed peer reviewed research on the question and found RBear's conclusions to be bullsh*t. And not to disrupt RBear's narrative, but an AWB leaves about 15 million of those sporting firearms in circulation among the general populace and available to bad guys in any number of ways.
.
Regardless, I have a deal for you RBear. I'll support the symbolic ban on rifles manufactured on a military platform if you will support arming teachers in schools. Deal?
