There are millions of AR type rifles in civilian hands in this country today. A miniscule amount are used in mass shootings. An intelligent individual would realize it isn't a problem caused by a firearm that is in general use in this country. The first thing one must do to find a proper solution to any problem, is correctly identify the problem.
Why would anyone think banning a certain type of firearm would stop mass shootings? If loonies cannot get black semi-auto rifles, they will use handguns or shotguns. And when they do, the gun banners will come for them too. Only a fool believes the real goal isn't total gun confiscation.
And if a total gun ban were to become reality, do you think a very profitable black market for guns wouldn't evolve?
This is why the NRA fights for your right to own what has been legal for decades. Give gun banners an inch and they will come for every inch eventually. Hunters who criticize the NRA and support any form of oppressive gun control, simply have no idea they are being used by people who want to strip them of their 2nd A rights too.
The NRA (National Rifle Association) murders 0 people and receives ($$$$ 0) nothing in government funds. Planned Parenthood kills 350,000 babies every year and receives $500,000,000 in tax dollars annually.
It is a fact most mass shootings occur in "gun free" zones where shooters know everyone is defenseless. They want to rack up a huge kill, as if they were scoring points in a video game. They want notoriety and fame. They want some sort of significance in their otherwise wasted lives. Why do people support laws stopping people from being able to shoot back? In places where people were able to carry concealed, mass shootings were stopped very quickly. Why would the government want to arrest you and lock you up for wanting to be able to defend yourself?
Mass shootings help the government's desire to get people to willingly give up their rights. Ever think maybe that's why it has no real plan to stop them? People who are fooled into supporting any government desire to disarm anyone, are fools who have not thought this thing through.
