    How does your comment, in any way, change the relevance of Devil's post?

This is clearly evidenced by the fact that the Democrats had the largest majority that they have had in recent history in 2009 and 2010. Did they pass strict gun control laws? Hell no, and they aren't going to do it now.
    Then what are you worrying about, if there's "no hope?"

    I am not worried about the Democrats getting enough control of our government to ban weapons. It isn't going to happen. You would think the left would get the hint as they have lost more and more seats.

The number would actually be far higher because the AR-15 is but one weapon on a list that the left wants to ban. Is this the issue that the Democrats are willing to make the 2018 elections about? Banning the AR-15 and other "assault weapons"? They need something beyond, they are not Trump.
    actually, the solution is quite simple. just include semi-auto rifles as a sub category of class 3 weapons based on the 1934 gun control act. confiscation is not the issue, but registration is - as is strict controls on purchase and transfer.

    The difference between an AR and other semi auto rifles is the material it is made from. And the "scary" look lol
    People that want to ban/stop production ARs dont seem to care enough about the issue to actually try and understand it, which BTW, stops any decent discussion from happening.
    People need to THINK instead of REACT.

    actually, I agree with that position. the AR-15 is just one of many weapons which, in the hands of a criminal or mentally disturbed person, can be quite deadly and devastating in a mass shooting. banning won't work and neither will an attempt to confiscate them. regulation will work - and this has been demonstrated to work in the past and present.

    Right. I hope the Democrats make that part of their platform. It will be the end of their minority party status. They will be a third party and fade into obscurity if they try it.

    Semi autos can include pest rifles for your back yard.
