DOJ Memo: Assault Weapons have little impact on crimes



Ruh roh, someone isn't toting the company line.... You mean to tell me that Obama, Biden, and the other pieces of shite are lying to us?

quote:

The memo, under the name of one of the Justice Department's leading crime researchers, critiques the effectiveness of gun control proposals, including some of President Barack Obama's. A Justice Department official called the memo an unfinished review of gun violence research and said it does not represent administration policy.

The memo says requiring background checks for more gun purchases could help, but also could lead to more illicit weapons sales. It says banning assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines produced in the future but exempting those already owned by the public, as Obama has proposed, would have limited impact because people now own so many of those items.

It also says that even total elimination of assault weapons would have little overall effect on gun killings because assault weapons account for a limited proportion of those crimes.

The nine-page document says the success of universal background checks would depend in part on "requiring gun registration," and says gun buybacks would not be effective "unless massive and coupled with a ban."

We have to do something, try something. Even if it is totally ineffective we need to feel good about ourselves.

If it saves just one child it is worth it.



Even if it endangers 1000 more in his place, at least we saved 1 damn it.

Funny how they like to use these two crimes as reasoning for banning "Assault Weapons" yet neither of the crimes involved the use of them...

This is just all part of the process. This gives them the ammo to go after ALL guns now, since it's not only assault weapons that are killing people.

I've said that from the beginning... I am completely against what they are attempting to do.

But if you were truly concerned about saving lives, you would go after all guns, because rifles account for less than 5% of crimes.
