    If they sold hand grenades at Wal-Mart, we'd probably have a lot more mass killings.

    Just an educated guess, of course.

    I believe that a major contributing factor is the left's hype regarding assault style weapons, which makes them in vogue and taboo, which is a driving force to use a particular type of weapon. The "militia man," and its portrayal in the media, and the ill-conceived martyrdom of dying in "combat" is a factor. Both are society created and the cause is a society created cause, which is mutually exclusive of weapons. As long as weapons are the focus point, which is addressing the how rather than the why, the cause will exist.

    As long as the NRA keeps pretending we can ever outlaw insanity....we need to focus on the "how" because we'll never be able to legislate away the "Why".

    We outlaw atomic weapons, grenades and machine guns from the civilian market because there is no lawful use/need for such dangerous equipment being in civilian hands.
    Assault rifles and high capacity magazine are in the same category.

    Danger far outweighs any lawful use.

    BTW...that is unarguably true so don't even try!

    The how is not going away. If every gun was taken away--or certain guns--that would open a world-wide black market for weapons much worse than a semi-automatic assault style weapon to be smuggled into the US., and the improvisation of weapons mass murders. Ingenuity will always win the day.

    By what right do we outlaw machine guns and grenades when the Constitution clearly states that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed?
