What is the argument in favor of the general public owning assault weapons? I can't think of one.

and still our government removed this issue from their gun control legislation discussion. why?

I could go on for hours on this. I'll stick with a few arguments. First the assault rifle ban in 1994 didn't help gun violence at all. Next if you ban assault rifles only criminals will have them(giving them an advantage.). Next look at what was happening after Hurricane Katrina and what took place during the LA riots: mass amounts of people being violent and causing serious damage. Little or no police help. A law abiding citizen having an assault rifle with a high capacity magazine would stand a much higher chance of protecting their home, business and family. Bottom line is banning guns and strict gun control only affects law abiding citizens.

Many people in favor of it are saying that is abides to the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution, "Right to bear arms." In a way, it is also a form of self defense. It is sometimes said that "the only thing that may stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun." Well, I hope this helps your understanding a little bit.

I own guns; a 10mm revolver, a Glock 27, a 30-30 lever-action rifle, and 2 12-gauge shotguns. I do not own (or want) an assault rifle, but because radical liberals like Feinstein start declaring & threatening to punish law-abiding citizens like me with crazy ideas like posting all gun owners addresses like they were child molesters - then I'll call my congressman.

When they did an "assault rifle" ban it didnt help crime at all and the founding fathers put that in there becase they knew an armed population is the only thing that will protect the population from tyrannical goverment
gun control is not about guns it's about controll
