I made an earlier post that refers to how this is a narrowly scoped idiotic mentality.
If only these incidents of gun violence could somehow keep the list of victims confined to the gun rights / NRA supporters and their loved ones, then maybe while still senseless, it might at least seem a little more equitable.
Have to ask, are you familiar with Venn diagrams and how they work ?
Related to this, the guns you are talking about would fall into the population of "weapon that looks really menacing, regardless of actual function"
Point being, most legislation is never that targeted. Instead, they are much broader in definition and scope.
