Like slaves, Americans beg for their chains.

The elites tell Americans that they don't need freedom and Americans nod their heads and agree that they don't need freedom.

The 1% says that if vaping is not banned, Americans will get cancer.

The elites say that if flag-burning is not banned, Americans will have freedom.

The elites say that churches must be closed because of terrorism.

The elites say that protesting must be banned because protesters will break windows.

The ruling class says that newspapers must be closed because only the government can tell you the truth.

The elites say there must be subsidies or every company will go bankrupt.

The elites say that Americans must be forced to buy insurance or they will not get healthcare.

The 1% says that Americans must get food stamps or everyone will starve to death.

The ruling class say that everyone must be wiretapped, tortured, and groped or there will be terrorism.

The elites say that if withdrawing cash from your own bank account is not banned, Americans will buy drugs.

The elites say that if restaurants are not licensed, businesses would have a vested interest in selling poisoned food.

The elites say that if guns are not banned, Americans will be shot.

The elites say that if everyone does not give DNA samples to the government then little girls will be raped.

The elites say that if hammers are not banned, Americans will have their heads smashed in with hammers.

Americans are so enslaved now that patriots who warn about the dangers of tyranny will be slammed for criticizing the beloved overlords of Americans.

Every country has the government it deserves.

Does anyone get the feeling that if the elites decreed that everyone must have their thumbs amputated, Americans would agree that the law makes sense and must be obeyed?

Excuse me but the 2nd Amendment protects "Arms" in general and the legislative powers of government are delegated the authority to determine which arms are protected and which arms are not.

That doesn't imply I agree with this legislation because I don't. They're are three things about firearms that make some firearms significantly more dangerous related to mass shootings than others.

1. High velocity projectiles - The damage to human tissue is related to the speed of the projectile and not to the mass of the bullet. A small .223 bullet traveling at 2000-3000 ft/second will cause significant damage to organs that it doesn't even come in contact with. A large handgun round traveling at 900-1000 ft/second only causes damage to organs that the bullet actually comes in contact with.
2. Semiautomatic operation - This allows a lot of ammunition to be expended in a very short amount of time resulting in more people being wounded or killed in a limited amount of time.
3. Removable large capacity magazines - These allow the shooting of more people in a shorter period of time because more rounds are fired between the reloading than with smaller magazines.

All three of these criteria must be met for one firearm to be more dangerous and lethal than a firearm that doesn't have all three of these characteristics.

None of these characteristics have anything to do with the appearance of the firearm and "assault weapons bans" typically use "appearance" as the criteria for the restrictions. Wrong criteria for anyone that knows anything about firearms.

To meet the first criteria of high velocity it typically requires a rifle. The short barrel of a handgun does not provide the length necessary for the projectile to reach high velocity. So we start with the rifle but not all rifles meet the other two criteria so we can't use that as a means for reducing the bloodshed in mass shootings.

Semiautomatic function is available in handguns, shotguns and rifles and is so common that it can't be used as a criteria for reducing the bloodshed and deaths in mass shooting.

Finally we reach the last criteria of the high capacity removable magazine. The magazine is an accessory to the firearm and not the firearm itself. Any firearms can be fired without a magazine by simply inserting a cartridge directly into the chamber. Without the magazine you simply have a single shot firearm. If we address the legitimate uses of firearms they include hunting, self-defense (that a rifle isn't really designed for), and marksmanship (practicing and competing). In none of these categories are more than five or six rounds of ammunition in the magazine, either internal to the firearm or provide for by a removable magazine, required.

So just limit the capacity of the magazines for high velocity semiautomatic rifles to 5-rounds and require a special permit for a person to own any magazine that holds more than five rounds and require all magazines that hold over five rounds to be serialized and registered.

Far better than "banning" or restriction ownership of the firearm based upon "appearance" and there's no Second Amendment issues because the removable magazine isn't an integral part of the firearm that's protected by the Second Amendment and isn't required for the operation of the firearm.

Liberals just don't understand how to address firearms to prevent or reduce the carnage of mass shootings. They don't understand how to address background checks on all firearms sales without imposing a mandate for the check either. Sometimes they're really dumb.

No the second amendment protects the individual right to own a firearm.

The rest of your post is of similar pablum.

Americans said alcohol was dangerous so it must be banned. Americans then found out that it wasn't so dangerous and it was legalized again.

Americans said marijuana was unsafe so it must be outlawed. Americans then found out that it wasn't so dangerous and it was legalized again.

Now Americans scream guns are dangerous so they must be illegal.

If people were wrong before then how can they be so sure that they are right now?
