It was the “Holder-peeps” who were the problem back then, too, wasn’t it?

It is not PC to say, but...

Makers vs Takers
Capitalists vs moochers
Enterprising immigrants vs lazy entitled victims

The assault weapon gives a small band of individuals the tool necessary to fend off murderous and pillaging thugs.

The author of this piece has the wrong idea what an assault weapon is.
Since so many do not know what an Assault Weapon really is, let us check in with Chuck Woolery.

http://saveuschuckwoolery.com/

Assault Rifle means:
It is of mid size caliber maybe a 6.8 mm or similar.
One trigger pull one cartridge is fired.
One trigger pull, a burst of two - three cartridges are fired.
One trigger pull continuous firing until trigger is released or magazine is empty.

This is all controled by a toggle switch on the side of the weapon.

These are not for sale to the public, only Military and Law Enforcement can obtain these.

The Bushmaster AR15 is a semi-automatic rifle made to look like a battle rifle. It operates no different than a semi-automatic Browning or Remington sporting dear rifle or a sporting shotgun used for taking water fowl game.

Years ago, a bike gang came to town. This gang broke into an acquaintances garage and started stealing his motorcycle and looting his garage. They didn't know this individual at all though or they would have known he could have armed a squad of riflemen well. He used an HK91 to encourage them to leave. No shots were fired. They left and did not return. Assault weapons do have a legitimate purpose in a country that is absolutely overrun with violent gangs, a country like the US of A for example.

Not disputing the premise of the O.P., however I believe a scoped 30-06 or .270 would have served well in that crisis as well as it’s higher capacity brethren.

Koreatown refused to be a trough for the Takers. The Takers got the message and went elsewhere end of story.

(Article) In the wake of the recent tragedy in Connecticut, it is important to focus discussion with a more broad perspective on lawful gun ownership. Instead of creating a media blitz that fails to remember the day when a neighborhood was saved by an assault weapon.
[Emphasis supplied.]

Girdusky could use some remedial classes in English, specifically on sentence structure and how to write without sentence fragments. He could also use a refresher on the comparison of adjectives.

Anecdote from the LA Riots. I was in Las Vegas at the SOF Convention after the Riots. I talked to an LAFD guy selling T-shirts emblazoned with the appropriate stick figures saying: “1992 LA Olympic Triathalon. Shoot, Loot, and Scoot.”

We talked about the response by the Koreatown shopkeepers. He told me that some of the rioters were throwing fire bombs (Molotov cocktails) into looted stores. One of the Koreans didn't want to shoot a rioter with a firebomb, so he shot it in his hand just after he lit the wick. The perp went from rioter to crispy critter.

don’t know much about guns, but the gunman who killed the kids would have got an assault rifle illegally if he wanted to, right? what difference would banning legal purchases do?
