Here in the U.S. mass killing seem to have a common thread...assault weapons. We know why, we know how, and we also know that there is no real system in place to stop them.
Ban the full auto loopholes, trace full-auto kit owners for asset trace or recovery, and require a 30 day FFAM training course for legal licensed ownership.
Tomorrow I could load up on ARs, conversion kits, and outside of a small wait period on the ARs there would be nothing to stop me. Of course, I have no interest in that as I am a recreational hunter, not a wannabe mass killer.
There should a system in place where I can still legally attain the weapons. A system where I register up to be licensed owner, finish training, and upon verifying my license can purchase ARs with a 7 day wait.
We, more than most internet forums know exactly what bullets do, it's not pretty. Oddly enough I think there are many here like me that would never own a riot shotgun let alone an assault style gun. We do not want our rights to bolt action rifles and auto-loading shotguns infringed on.
So who speaks for us? Personally guys that are into man guns make me nervous and most of the ones I know do not hunt.
