It creates more un necessary gov't bureaucracy funded with mis guided special interest money not the people. We don't need more of that especially when it comes to gun ownership.

Please provide a REAL reason why Assault weapons should not be banned!
Comparing then to cars in not a valid argument! And to think so is being irresponsible! I do not see any reason for you a private citizen Have ANY need or myself in that matter, NEED an AR 15! NONE WHAT SO EVER! a 45 or a 9mm is as just as good. a shot gun even better!
AS for FID cards do you know why 15 year olds here are able or need then in Mass? So they can buy BB's and Pellets. a side note, for you care pepper spray in mass you need an FID card. So yes an FID card believe or not is easier to get then a Driver License. and yes getting a Gun Permit is quicker here then a new driver getting their License. In a few States in the west it is even easier! To believe otherwise is just plain ignorance.
This is my last time i am even responding in this thread. The responds I have read lead me to believe several users care less for human live then other aspects. The right of 20 innocent children where taken away. I honestly start to question your mind and logic. and that is to most who think a weapons ban is wrong not directed at one person. It disgusts me on many levels that you are not looking at you own selfish means over the rights of society as a whole. Allowing more assault weapons as well as their related items, adding armed guards in schools, and making access to guns is NOT the answer. In my opinion it is plain ignorance to think it is. and to note , if you break into my house, dont worry about any guns....worry about me!

though your question was not directed at me, I will answer any how.
I think mass killings, any killing, or any crime is not acceptable. there are around 45 murders everyday here, this does not include any missing people(which number around 2000 per day, yes day), which can be assumed they are dead.
this is the biggest issue we have. there are way too many repeat offenders and way too many people committing crimes. The insane person who snaps is not even 1/10 of one percent of those numbers.
our focus needs to be crime and criminals, but there are too many crooked people involved and too many restrictions on the honest ones. restricting gun rights does do something, but is not the answer.
I know you love to say people don't want to do anything and at least a restriction is something and something is better than nothing, I say sometimes nothing is way better than the alternative.
the perfect example is the tax increase as an answer to our economic issues, it has and will do nothing. Cutting spending and cutting fraud is the only answer. cutting spending and a tax hike may help fund the jobs needed to cut fraud, but until we do that, the rest is futile.
back to guns, unless crime is not tolerated at any level and real prisons and prison time exist, more people will continue to be murdered on a daily basis than did in the recent mass shootings.

I've only ever said it's part of a solution, not a solution in itself. Why are you still stuck on there needing to be a one part step that ends all crime?

abortion? gay marriage? marijuana? gun ban?
passing the buck?
no you are worried about a small amount of people, I am worried about everyone. at 45 murders a day, the number of people who have died do to criminals since and before the last "mass" murder is the real issue.
