Shopping that bullshitter around huh?
Most murders are not committed by assault weapons. And several studies concluded that the original 1994 Assault Weapons Ban had very little effect on the number of murders in the country.
FACT CHECK: Are Most Gun Crimes Committed With Handguns?
Emily Larsen on February 20, 2018
Republican Sen. James Lankford claimed Sunday on NBC that at least three times as many crimes are committed with handguns than with rifles.
Handguns are used in about nine times as many murders and eight times as many nonfatal violent crimes than rifles, shotguns and other firearms combined.
Lankford pointed out the high proportion of crimes committed with handguns after NBC host Chuck Todd pressed him on whether the AR-15, the weapon used in the Parkland, Fla. shooting, should remain classified as a rifle.
“So there are three or four, five times as many crimes committed with a handgun than there are with a rifle. So we can have that conversation. But when you look at the statistics, many, many, many more shootings occur with a pistol than they do with a rifle,” Lankford said on “Meet the Press.”
His office pointed The Daily Caller News Foundation to the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) on firearms used in murders. By that measure, Lankford is right that handguns are used much more often than rifles.
Handguns were used in 19 times as many murders than rifles were in 2016, according to the UCR data. Handguns killed nine times as many victims as rifles, shotguns, and other guns did combined. The type of firearm used was unknown for about 28 percent of all firearm murders.
Firearms are the most common murder weapon, accounting for over half of the murders each year from 2007 to 2016. The FBI’s UCR shows that 11,004 of the 15,070 murders in 2016 were committed with firearms.
Basically, you snowflakes are just beating off to this non-issue. It is not going to be a factor in the 2020 Trump landslide reelection, nor will it be a factor in the Democrats losing the House. It just just a knee jerk to the recent mass shootings where registered Democrats decided to commit mass murder.
If anything, Democrats should be banned, since they're committing most of the murders.
Why wouldn't it be?
You have no idea what that phrase means.
And an even larger number of free grown men, women and childrens' LIVES are saved by those same alleged people slaughtering devices.
Criminologist and researcher Gary Kleck, using his own commissioned phone surveys and number extrapolation, estimates that Americans use guns for defensive purposes 1.2 million times each year — and that 1 in 6 Americans who have used guns defensively believe someone would have died but for their ability to resort to their defensive use of firearms.
So tell us, Adolf. Why do you think all those people should have had to die just because you hate guns so much?
He hates and despises most people; he wants them to die. It's the defining characteristic of his kind.
It doesn't bother him if helpless people are robbed, raped, or murdered by armed criminals because he can use that to argue for the counter-intuitive "solution" of less privately owned guns. And anyway, those people were going to end up dead anyway; if they didn't agree with him and his kind, they were going to a gulag or a mass grave. And even if they did agree, the useful idiots are only kept around until they're no longer useful..... and then they're killed too.
People like him are the reason the rest of us have guns.
Nope. I can’t find even one gun nut who will listen to reason.
It's hard being a lying snake-oil salesman, amirite?
Is that what conservative SCOTUS Chief Justice Burger was?
No they weren't.
You are just parroting what the fake news MSM is telling the Sheeple.
Normal thinking Americans remember full well what the polls were saying all the way up to the 9 o'clock hour.
Those things are already banned. Why aren't you already revolting like the criminal you claim to be?
Who says I'm not?
Why do you think I joined the military all those years ago, if not to get training in how to achieve my ultimate goal?
I'm all about planning ahead.
What is your ultimate goal?
The destruction of the constitution of the United States?
None of your business.
And no, that's what the powers that be are up to.
The laws banning those weapons were done in accordance with the constitution and through the processes laid out in the constitution.
Those laws ARE constitutional according to the very process for determining that laid out in the constitution.
You just don't seem to understand it much.
You should really read the constitution and maybe take a civics class.
You really owe your country that much at least.
Exactly even a flame thrower is legal
The weapons i listed ARE NOT legal. A civilian cannot own them.
No, they are clearly not.
And it is so blatantly clear, that it is used as a way of telling who is who..... people like you who support it, identify yourselves as useful idiots for the oligarchy to use. People who call it out, are put on a list to be either driven out or killed eventually.
I owe nothing.
You sure about that?
Actually they were. They were passed by representatives elected by the people, signed by the president, and not overturned by the Supreme Court.
Thus they ARE constitutional.
That IS the constitution.
Your ignorance about what the constitution is and what it does are no excuse.
You really should read it and learn about it. Every American should.
You do owe your country that much.
