I know I talk about banning assault rifles quite a lot, but I think it’s important to point out that handguns should be banned as well.
In the US handguns are mostly carried by criminals and right wing extremists who want to kill people. While they kill less people a year than assault rifles they are a still a threat, and no one except for police should be allowed to carry them.
We would not have all of this gun crime if no one was allowed to own or carry guns in the US.
They also make a lot of high caliber large clip size handguns(like the murder device pictured above) in the US that have no purpose other than killing people and they can be bought without a background check from a store or gun show in most states.
This is why we have a higher gun violence rate than any other country in the world.
Assaut Rifles are already illegal in the US.
Citation needed on most handguns being in criminal or extremist hands. No, really, most people I know who have handguns keep them for concealed carry or other self-defensive purposes.
Handguns kill MORE people than assault rifles per year. Only two people were killed with an NFA weapon from 1950-2000. Rifles in general only kill something around 250 people per year.
There are over 80 firearms per 100 people in the US. There are enough bullets in the US so that there’s enough to put four in every American…and still have a surplus. That massive amount of firearms is not going to go away with a ban. That ammo will keep circulating through reloading. Hell, anyone will a milling machine can make an AKM!
The next paragraph is completely wrong. That’s a Ruger MkII, chambered in .22lr: The smallest mass-produced commerical round available. I think the only smaller round out there is the .17 HMR. All gun purchases in the US require a NICS background check, or else they are illegal.
I get the feeling you’re a parody blog.
Also, OP is a troll blog.
ETA: Private sales don’t require a background check in most states, either. Barring a few states, that’s only for sales between a licensed dealer and private citizen.
