Should there be a ban on buying assault weapon for individual or personal use?


In view of the recent Aurora massacre that killed a dozen people and wounded nearly 60, the suspect used an assault weapon and other deadly ones. He bought all the weapons in the past month or so. Assault weapons are used by people who are assigned for general security of the people. Should an individual be allowed to buy an assault weapon knowing that it can be used to kill in successive and fastest ways?

    js KNOWS that the Oct. '09 issue of Outdoor Life, the premier magazine of hunting/fishing, prominently featured an AR rifle on it's front cover, and declared it one of the top ten deer hunting rifles of the year. Ask yourself... why does he lie?

    How about motive, when one purchase assault weapon - the main purpose is to use for assault. Thanks for commenting.

    I'd edit that definition to read, "Assault Rifle (n.): a photogenically evil-looking, black rifle demagogging politicians can use as a cheap prop to help fool the voters into thinking they actually are trying to 'do something.'"
