Just saw this new ad to ban assault weapons. I think it's really good.

Hope it converts some gun enthusiasts.

1. A good start, but....

I don't think anybody needs high capacity magazines either. They need to take them away from everybody and that includes the police. Law enforcement doesn't need to be going around like armed soldiers, it only leads to more innocent people being shot.

2. No, thank you.

The amendment proposes to ban all rifles or shotguns capable of having any feed device with a capacity over ten rounds. This would ban any rifle or shotgun with a detachable magazine, including those clearly designed for target or hunting purposes, not just the “lethal weapons of war” showcased with airy, arty shots in the video. I don’t see gun enthusiasts being very enthusiastic about explaining to their nephew that he is now a class three felon because of the .22 he uses to plink at cans. I also can’t help but notice that it only bans the semi automatic version - not the fully automatic machine gun version of the same weapon! It also does not ban semi automatic pistols, so if you want to be a law abiding mass shooter and throw your own Virginia Tech, Luby’s, or Virginia Beach style massacre (all of which were accomplished with pistols only) feel free.

Pass. Another poorly thought out attempt to sidestep any meaningful solution to gun violence by banning scary looking black rifles.
