I'm going to help you out here.
In 2011 there were a total of 12,664 murders in the US total.
In 2011 there were 8,583 murders committed in the US using guns.
323 were killed using rifle fire.
How many were your "assault rifles" responsible for out of that number, we don't know, so I will just go ahead and say ALL, just for arguments sake.
That means that a maximum of 0.0255 % of all murders that happened in the US came out of the barrel of an "assault type weapon".
And 0.037 % of all gun related murders came out of the barrel of the same "assault weapons".
YUP, we have a winner everyone. These guns are killing everyone in sight, there is no way that we will survive if these guns are still able to be sold to civilians.
One of the dumber arguments I have heard from the left in a while.
Hey guyz. It is cool "only" 323 people were killed with "assault type weapons". We could help save possibly 323 people a year from senseless dying by banning them, but since it is such a small % of the ridiculously high number of gun murders in the US we should just say fug those 323 families and not worry about it.
The thing is that 323 people is 100% too many even if it is 0.037% of the incredibly high number of gun murders in this country. And we can do something about it because assault type weapons have no use except as a form of toy and/or to kill people.
And since most people have forgotten the spirit of the second amendment and the reasons for it, I have some questions for you guys. Since the purposes of the 2nd amendment has been perverted by the gun lobbyists, but we (I guess) agree that we need "well regulated militias" to still defend our free and autonomic states.
Who is your commanding officer if you are called into action as a militia? Where do you report to? What is the chain of command? What are the rules of engagement?
Getting back to the OP and the question it poses. 'Well regulated" means that there are rules and regulations that you have to abide by in order to be considered a "well regulated" militia and therefore be armed. That might mean audits of weaponry and ammunitions. That is what many military entities have to do, Why not gun owners who are protected under the 2nd amendment as a "well regulated militia"?
