41. Interesting talking points on assault weapons

 

So the discussion on what substantiates an assault weapon would be quite broad and tainted by politicians.
So I guess we won't be able to move a lot of ground on this topic.
OK.

Crime statistics -
Bare hand homicides are 3-5 times more than assault weapon homicides.
So it stands to reason that we could possibly do something to limit the homicides on both ends?
Agree?
Mental health evaluations at the DMV (license registration) is starting to sound like a good starter.

.50 caliber history.
- Interesting to know that they are for target shooting.
- So only allow purchases to people who have the proper licensed training for .50 caliber weapons?
- There seems to be no need outside of target shooting.

Parroting?
I do not know the amount of homicides for the .50 caliber.
But after your explanation, it appears that this gun is for sport primarily.

In addition, if my words sound the same to you, I can let you know, that you sound the same to me.
The same ol same ol - won't take my gun over my dead body stuff.........defend the issue with "guns aren't as dangerous as XYZ"
There is a problem here that we refuse to address and resolve.
Most gun owners are law abiding citizens, I agree, but how do we filter out the few that use the gun for personal injury?

Its not fear mongering that drives my activism, but the preservation of our short lives.
Why would you not want to protect the innocent?
Why would you turn your back on everyone and live out your selfish wants without a care for another human being?

Is it pretentious to ask you to care about how the "sport" you love, is detrimental to other people in our country?
The lack of filters that may stop that one "crazy" from assaulting someone, or killing another?

You definitely know more about the gun industry than I do, however let me pose a situation to you, when the homicide becomes personal, would you change your position? When do you decide to look beyond defending your pro-gun position and reach out beyond to create safer gun ownership for all Americans?

I hope you can open your mind to the possibility that some measures need to be put in place to make Everywhere, USA a little safer.
