    They only become criminals if they persist in owning contraband weapons. No slaughter weapon, no crime. Caught with slaughter weapon after grace period, criminal.
    Eliminating 1% is eliminating over 100 murders/year.
    100+murders acceptable to you?
    And your analogy misses the fact that Corvettes and all high-powered sports cars are limited by DOT to a certain power to weight ratio specifically because they were getting too powerful in the 70s and killing people. Same idea as limiting the magazine size and kill rate.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      as opposed to fire arms appropriate for home defense. Is a home invader going to keep coming in, in the face of a shotgun?

      Even if the first blast misses?

      Eliminating the tool used will not prevent the crime, nor is there any reason to think the overall murder rate will decrease.

      the purpose of the second amendment is to promote a well-regulated militia, in the same sense that the purpose of the first amendment is to promote a well-informed electorate.

      I'd like to see a link for that. The 2013 Corvette ZR1 has a 638 HP engine and a top speed of 205 MPH, which far surpasses anything available 40 years ago. Even the lowly Camaro can be had with 500+ HP, again much more than in the 70's.

      Fuel economy rules put the kibosh on performance cars in the 70's.
