Oct. 1, 1997 Pearl, Ms. Two students killed. (2)

Dec. 1, 1997 West Paducah, Ky. Three students killed. (3)

Mar. 24, 1998 Jonesboro, Ar. Four students and one teacher killed. (5)

Apr. 24, 1998 Edinboro, Pa. One teacher, John Gillette, killed. (1)

May 19, 1998 Fayetteville, Tn. One student killed. (1)

May 21, 1998 Springfield, Or. Two students killed. (2)

Oct. 28, 2002 Tucson, Az. Three professors killed. (3)

Apr. 14, 2003 New Orleans, La. One student killed. (1)

Apr. 24, 2003 Red Lion, Pa. One principal killed. (1)

Sept. 24, 2003 Cold Spring, Mn. Two students killed. (2)

That's a total of 48 people- men, women and mostly children, WHOSE DEATHS WERE NOT PREVENTED by the existence of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.


A duplicate of the Federal 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, currently in place on the Connecticut law books, also DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO PREVENT THE SLAUGHTER OF 26 INNOCENTS- meaning that the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban has failed to prevent a total of 74 deaths during its tenure.'

What's even more interesting is the mass shooting attempted a few weeks ago in the Oregon mall was stopped by another man carrying a gun for self defense, and no one reported it.

Well, there wasn't a federal assault weapons ban. That is a feature of interstate commerce. What I can't do in Connecticut, I might be able to do in another state. Like say, buy a 32 oz soda in New Jersey and drive to New York where I can't. You make this type of weapon off limits for everyone, then it is harder to get.


BUT WE CAN GET THE SAME WEAPON THAT LOOKS DIFFERENT!?!?!?!?

Then why are you complaining? Doesn't sound like your rights are being infringed on.

You make this type of weapon off limits for everyone, then it is still possible for people intent to kill to get.


FIFY.












Added common sense and historical reality. You may wanna read slowly.
















Ok...now you may wanna re-read it again.
















Thanks.

You were touting a state law as evidence that assault weapon bans are ineffective. I provided evidence to the contrary, and I will take your snarky, deflecting post about international arms trades as evidence that I am right. Read as many times as you feel necessary.


Here is something else for you to deflect, the worst school shooting under the ban left 13 dead compared to Sandy Hook's 26.

Very interesting... actually Concealed Carry incidents happen all the time, but the media only thinks a story is newsworthy when guns are used in crimes, not in self defense. Talk about cherry picking.

Are you saying state laws are ineffective? Let's just do away with them and make EVERY law federal then.

And as usual, you lack critical thinking skills in a thread. Why did the Connecticut ban not work? Because it COULD NOT BE ENFORCED via the existence of other guns.

Why would a Federal ban not work? Because it COULD NOT BE ENFORCED via the existence of other guns. And guess what? People can make their own guns. It's pretty easy with modern tools.

It's harder to get legally! For those who want to obey laws not those who laugh at them!

Cocaine is illegal and can't be made in the us yet it is very available!

In your world only outlaws get to have these guns!! Smart thinking there buddy!!

You can't regulate your way into safety when your country is built on freedom!

This is so moronic, I don't know how to respond. So, your inability to reason, wins the day! Just goes to show kids that if you can't make intelligent arguments, just make such irrational ones that your opponent doesn't even care to respond.
