Are there any studies regarding the risk reward of owning high capacity weapons? I've never researched the data, but I'd imagine owning these types of weapons more often than not results in accidental shootings of the owner or the owners family. Compared to instances of actually protecting the owner and his property.
Just recently there have been two separate incidents of fathers killing their own sons when they mistakenly took them for intruders. How many times have we read where guns go off accidentally, often killing someone in the room.
Fighting the gun lobby doesn't work, in my view. Maybe it's time to go above the crazies and appeal to Americans directly with reason and evidence. If you possess one of these high capacity weapons, it's more likely that you will kill yourself or a family member before you use the gun to protect your family or possessions.
What do the numbers say? It's time to find out.
The loony GOP has been wrong about everything. The wars, evolution, climate change, science, economics, and on and on. Why should we trust them on this topic? Shotguns and rifles are fine. Antiques are fine. The rest need to go.
