Why Not Renew the 'Assault Weapons- Ban? Well, I'll Tell You...

Summary
If gun control advocates want to actually have meaningful discussion and debate about the 'assault weapon- and 'high capacity- ban, they MUST address these questions:- Why ban cosmetic features?
- Why ban guns used in a mere 2% of crime?
- Why base gun control legislation on rare and statistically insignificant mass shootings to begin with?
- Why ban magazines that have been consistently sized since their invention?
- How would banning these magazines have saved lives, given that all a shooter needs is multiple magazines and 3 seconds of time (i.e. Cho)?
- How will a ban on either these weapons or magazines reduce crime, since there are many millions of them legal and available anyway, especially since production has ramped up after the ban's expiration?

And most importantly:

After a decade of failure, why assume that the bans will reduce violent crime THIS time around?

Also, thanks to meepNinja for THIS.

Spankerchief, you are on notice.

Thanks for this Loki.

It has contributed mightily to my on-going education, by informing me of things I didn't know.

Ah, good article.

@LOki

Is that how adam lanza acquired his assault weapon?

You were wondering, were you?

Well, my advice to you then, is to make an exhaustive search of the internet, every news agency in the world, and every record kept by every government regarding Adam Lanza, every AK47, and every shovel ever made, to find out for sure.

And don't just take "no" for an answer just because the first few hundred-thousand places you look don't say "yes"--keep searching and leave no stone unturned in your quest.

And maybe along the way you might find a point.

Let us know how it works out for you.

I own a lathe and a mill, along with cutting, drilling, welding, and bending equipment.
While I could not make an assault weapon out of a shovel, I could make one out of a junked Chevy.
Not only that, it would be a real assault weapon. Not that thing Lanza used.
A 'grease gun' THAT is an assault weapon.
Easy to make, cheap ammunition, and short enough that no one would ruin your fun by grabbing the barrel even in a crowd.

Loki-tool, defender of the gunless.

Looking forward to your weapons being confiscated.

Please, please, please put up a fight.

@BigDinWaunakee

Is your point in posting the ability to personally manufacture an assault weapon out of a shovel that anyone with the skill and incentive can get a hold of something that is otherwise illegal? Is that your point? That if assault weapons are made illegal that there will be a run on shovels and machining equipment?

No.

But that's a pretty good point.

So what's your point?

@StartRecordingNow

Another Loki-spawn shot down in a hail of gunfire in Aurora, CO. The "heroes" head exploded like an over-ripe melon. +1 for the gene pool.

It's just hilarious that you keep insisting these events have anything to do with me or what I think.

I'd just love to see the retarded calculus you use to validate your fatuous assertions.

I think I'll try it out for myself:

Well, what do you know? It's works better for me than it does for BigDinWaunakee--when I do it, the assertion is valid.

I thought godless liberal guntakers were all into "science" and meep.
With no empirical evidence supporting any sort of weapon ban based on public safety why would they push this SO HARD, into our collective meep?

They've obviously an open-shut case on global climate warming cooling change cyclic seasonal flow.

My calculus is:

1 Part Your Drivel
1 Part Your Ilk
1 Part Desire

and it equals all Loki, all the Time. With some exploding body parts.

Enjoy the upcoming legislation.

BigDinWaunakee:
My calculus is:

Lolsome. I never dreamed you'd be stupid enough to submit it for examination.

BigDinWaunakee:
1 Part Your Drivel

For the purposes of counter-point, let us examine your product with the understanding that you do not consider it to be "drivel," but rather in some way more sensible than what I post:

"Westchester and Rockland, NY county gun permit holders are meeping meep. So, let me get this right. You think everyone should own a gun to deter violence, but when the opportunity to exhibit gun wielding l33t skills becomes a possibility, you run like meeps? Ah, c'mon, I thought you were tougher than that?

Loki, I see your fifth cousin on your Daddy's side just gunned down some firefighters. Keep it classy."
--BDW

"Loki has ruined it for all reasonable and sane owners.

Maybe its time for the sane to hunt down the insane."
--BDW

Seriously. Your reality check bounced; the account it is drawn from is bankrupt.

By comparison, even my intentional applications of absurdity are brilliant gems of sober sensibility.

BigDinWaunakee:
1 Part Your Ilk

My "ilk." How charming. My ilk consists of all sensible, rational, and capable human beings; decent folks who have no desire make obedient servants of their fellow human beings. We do not regard ourselves or others as a means to an end; being decent human beings is the most fitting and rewarding end by itself.

It's not at all surprising that you only make suggestions of what my "ilk" is--poisoning the well with maudlin appeals to emotion--rather than clearly and concisely describing what constitutes my "ilk."

The reason for that is even the most senseless of human beings would be capable of discerning the glaring discrepancies between what you're attempting to sell as my ilk, and what my ilk actually is. Your gutless stratagem allows you to claim some disingenuous plausible deniability when called to the carpet.

BigDinWaunakee:
1 Part Desire

Your desire to see my ilk destroyed is also not surprising to anybody. Me and my ilk are directly opposed to your ilk's sanctimonious sense of entitlement to force (at gunpoint) it's self-serving "benevolence" upon others. The intellectual and moral superiority of my ilk is a painful reminder to you, and your bitter and envious ilk, that you're just a bunch of incompetent cretins with overdeveloped senses of entitlement to the lives of your fellow human beings.

BigDinWaunakee:
and it equals all Loki, all the Time.

... and I'll just take that as the compliment it was not meant to be.

BigDinWaunakee:
With some exploding body parts.

Again, unsurprising. Considering how it is members of your own ilk--motivated and enabled by your own notions of "reasonable" regulations--that inevitably winds up shooting themselves in the foot (or the face ... whatever), when the law of unintended consequences enforces itself. It appears to be an unfortunate requirement that you retards find it necessary to victimize others before you blow your brains out--the only consolation we can hope for is that, on the whole, you are most likely surrounded by those who share in your moral and intellectual deficiencies when you finally get to your idiotic end-game.

BigDinWaunakee:
Enjoy the upcoming legislation.


Again, not at all surprising that you could suggest enjoyment over the prospect of regulations intentionally designed to leave everyone else--especially women, the elderly, and school children--even more vulnerable to the violent deprivations of your ilk.

Another of BigmeepinWaunakee's ilk shot in the face five times.

The reason the BigmeepinWaunakee opposes reasonable gun control regulation.
