"And that the harm caused when automatic weapons are used wrongly outweighs the benefit they have as a form of defense. You don't need a lot of rapid-fire bullets to kill an attacker. But they sure help you if you want to kill a lot of people in a spree."
I think everyone except libertarians agree on this. However, the specific subject on this thread, the 1993 assault weapons ban, doesn't have anything to do with those weapons. They are long since regulated to the point of needing a ton of effort to get legally.
Unfortunately, you stick the label 'assault weapon' on something, and it looks 'evil'.
