    Define an assault weapon?
    Having had full, semi's, bolt action, anf a few other assorted type weapons pointed at me,any one of which could only kill me once, for no matter what weapon it was if I had been hit by it would not of changed by one iota the fact that I had been assaulted.
    In its final determination it is not the weapon that assaults but what the man holding intends to use it for.

      But some weapons are a lot more efficient than others.

      The only legal definition of an assault weapon that will EVER come close to changing the outcome of these mass shootings; but never these domestic ones; is a "weapon that can fire ten or more rounds in under several seconds." Yes, my friend, this means going after semi-automatic guns. Do I think this could ever happen? No.

      Mass shootings are more dangerous now as guns, pistols included, become smaller and carry more rounds. These aren't the days of the SixShooter.

    I still don't understand why anyone needs a semi-automatic rifle? I know people have the right to own them, but why would anyone want one.

      I'm not that good of a shot . . . if someone is entering my home / bedroom / etc. . . . I want to make sure that I have more than one shot available - quickly.

      You know what the neat thing about the Second Amendment is? Nobody has to justify their weapon to you.

    The interpretation that the 2nd Amend allows individuals to own weapons of mass destruction is false. That doesn't mean we shouldn't have the right to own guns, which I do. We just shouldn't hide behind the 2nd to justify allowing WMD's in the hands of anybody who wants one. Weapons such as high-powered lasers, tanks, atom bombs, and assault rifles that can take out hundreds at a time were never intended for individual protection by our founding fathers.

      Hello crazy, none of those types of weapons systems you mentioned haven't been invented yet. When our 'founding fathers" were alive they had the types of weapons that you had to pour the gun powder down the barrel to include the bullet, pack it, and then fire it. They were all single shots to include the cannon that was used back then. Learn your history before opening your mouth.

    Again another death. Why does there need to be guns in the world. Police should investigate houses fir guns and confiscate them.

      Really Conlan, So you probably think Hitler was a good. Because that's how he started out. We took all the guns away from German citizens. I believe Stain did too.

      Police should take away guns from their owners? Wow. Such an awesomely ignorant statement.

      @ the prophet, you might want to check the scriptures again. They say nothing about a perfect society. There are multiple scriptures that speak of civill unrest. Society was initially meant to be a perfect utopia until the fall of Adam and Eve. After that is when all hell broke loose. If society was perfect, God wouldn't have had to send Christ to suffer and die for our sins. Scriptures talk about everything that is going on in the world today to include the shootings. Stop being ignorantly scared of the book and read and study Revelations. We are living in revelatory times and if you are a real prophet as your name says, you should know this. If we as believers of Christ would get off our complacent butts to reach and claim this world for Christ (which is our main mission here on Earth), there would be less of this maddness going on.

    the way to solve americas gun problem is to make every body from 5 years of age carry a gun at all times and be issued with one bullet when they have used their bullet they must take the empty to thegun shop to be issued with one more bullet so everyperson will be happy they have agun they have abullet go out and have fun

    Oh the right and their second amendment reasoning. Someone please explain to them what it really means. No one should be allowed to obtain assault weapons at anytime. We need to vote out the TP fringe nuts come 2014. They are doing nothing but holding up progress and ruining America. They keep hollering about free stuff from the government given to minorities (which they actual mean black people)which is also not true. They really need to look and see how the southern states are riding the government roll like a wave and really get the exact figures about who is getting the free stuff. Then again they will not believe it because they are not facing reality. They are still stuck in the 18th century. They still do not understand why their boy Mitt lost so we can not expect them to understand the problem of assault weapons. One thing about the GOP they do not believe in the facts that's for sure.
