    "Evil" guns arent evil

    Yes, my "evil assault rifles" would be considered banned by the old AWB. But face it, the AWB does nothing about the firearms. An AR-15 with a flash-hider and pistol grip with a 30 round magazine doesn't make any more deadly than that of an AR-15 without a flash hider and/or pistol grip with a 10 round magazine. Another AWB is just going to piss the majority of Americans, and most (if not, all) rightful gun owners.

    There are many reasons why I have a few sound suppressors, AR-15s, and short barreled rifles (under 16" barrel length), and none of those reasons include heinous acts. They do offer great protection for when a handgun/shotgun/"traditional" rifle is the disadvantage. They are very fun to shoot for recreation with friends or family, to hunt with, and to collect.

    Guns aren't bad at all. It's like driving a car.

    If someone runs over and kills a pedestrian, why would you ban the car?

    On another note, while the shooting in CT is unfortunate, it's not the worst that could happen. There have been individuals that have shot up and blown up schools full of children and public places in other countries for their "cause". Be thankful that doesn't happen here on a regular basis. And if it did, hopefully there would be a mass of law-abiding citizens shooting back as they did in 1966 at the University of Texas.
