  •  I agree with much of what you say (9+ / 0-)

    and I recognize that 'Assault Weapons' make up a very small part of the actual murders.  My point is that given that they are pretty much useless for anything other than shooting up lots of people (that is, hunting rifle is pretty much always the better option for hunting) why not just get rid of the damn things...its the low hanging fruit...its for lack of a better word, easy.  Similarly, a similar formula could be used for hadguns.

    Would this end all gun violence? Of course not.  But it would be a simple step, part of many steps (of which you detail several important ones) along the way.
