Do you think it will make a difference if we ban assault type weapons?

Report as

Probably not, there are already plenty of them out there now, secondly , people with evil intent always manage to get a weapon somehow . The politicians like to go after situations such as the latest tragedy and then get in a big frenzy to pass some " feel good " piece of legislation so they can show us all how concerned they are with our well being!

Banning of assault type weapons will definitely make a very huge difference. The crime rate in the country will go down, hence making Americans more comfortable when walking the streets.

most gun crimes involve hand guns not assault weapons, by ppl who are not allowed to have hand guns..but yet they find a way to get hold of them. banning them will just take them out of the hand of law abiding citizens and create a black market for the criminals to get them

Banning them prevents them from being widely available, so that these ppl who are not allowed to have them.....HAVE A HARDER TIME GETTING THEM.

But hand guns are not assault weapons most of the time. People don't usually get mugged with and assault rifle.

I doubt it since its rarely the legal gun owners who commit these crimes .

Of COURSE it will!! How ethnocentric is your worldview? This has been tried over and over again in country after country. Ban assault weapons, and the number of massacres involving those types of weapons drops out of sight! (And something you might not realize: When an insane maniac uses some OTHER type of weapon to try and attempt a massacre, not NEARLY as many die!) If any answerer here believes the answer they put (save for klaeticia222), they are TOOLS of the NRA. Tools.

You do realize it's been done? Stats don't lie. These other countries have drastically reduced crime rates.
