87. Assault weapon competitions

belong in the military. They don't use assault weapons at the Olympics and there are plenty of competitions that don't use assault weapons. Weapons of war do not belong in the hands of private citizens, period. On any given day a heretofore reasonable, rational human can snap. There is no way to prevent that, or to know who will.

As to all the rest of the nonsense, a check, after a long drawn out legal battle, is no consolation to the family of the victim.

You are way over-stretching the "logic" of Heller and Miller. The court ruled people have the right to own guns for the legal purpose of protection...no one needs 30 rounds or a hundred rounds for personal protection. You want to shoot a weapon with military value, join the army.
