32. Ah yes, the slippery slope.

I just turned your own logic on it's head.

Ya wanna go some more? Ok since it makes no sense to ban assault weapons by definition, let's ban the function that makes them so lethal. No semi auto weapons with interchangeable magazines, period. Stop pussy footin round with hand grips and bayonet lugs. Just ban the things that make them more lethal than wheel guns and bolt actions.

Actually, what you've done is reveal your true agenda.

Wheel guns and bolt actions were a huge step forward in lethality in the 19th century. So let's stop pussyfooting around and ban all repeaters. Back to single shots! Wait, what's that you see? Breech-loading is faster than muzzle loading? And cartridges load faster than powder and ball? OK, back to powder and ball. Percussion caps? Nay, I say! Flintlock or nothing!

Wait -- why do we let commoners have guns anyway?
