    but limited.

    If you look at the original "assault weapons ban" it was more style than substance - you could still legally acquire as powerful or more powerful a weapon that was not classified as an "assault" weapon.

    The key is to limit magazine capacity - this fucking lunatic had some huge capacity clips that allowed him to basically turn those poor kids into swiss cheese.

    Reloading gives that pause where people can strike back - I'm not concerned with the style - I'm concerned with the capacity - our President needs to draw a line at 8 to 10 rounds max - make any higher capacity a felony.  I think you could get that passed and it would have a major impact on mass shootings.

    The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
