Why don't you quit the sarcasm? It doesn't make your position any more intelligent or rational. All it does is suggest that you don't have either facts or reason on your side, so you are forced to resort to ridicule. Tell me, what you actually expect a ban on AR-15s (and similar rifles) would accomplish? Would it reduce the homicide rate? Not by any significant amount. They might look "scary", but the simple fact is that while an AR was used to carry out the shooting at Sandy Hook, they simply aren't used in very many homicides. Banning them won't really make a difference, except to interfere with the peaceful and law-abiding citizens who use them for other, legal purposes (ranging from hunting, to target shooting, to killing varmint animals). There are literally tens of millions of AR-15 rifles out there in civilian hands in the US. There are over 100 million rifles of all types in civilian hands. And yet, only about 300-350 homicides each year involve any type of rifle (let alone "assault rifles"). How does that in any way suggest that "assault weapons" are a significant problem. You have a better chance of being beaten to death several times over before being killed by such a weapon. So really, by focusing on "assault weapons", what do you really want? What do you really expect? Guns have a large variety of uses. Many of them are highly beneficial to society, and some of them are harmful to society. In the overall balance, the harm caused by these weapons is minor compared to their vast number of benefits.
