I am not sold either way on banning so called assault style firearms and accessories. With 20 million in our possession I don’t see what you gain other than a feel-good law. Grandfather laws in the Constitution forbid the confiscation of these previously owned firearms.

You are giving them fame and others will imitate them for their fame and attention. Also, the public does not to need to know all of the details of the guns used and injuries caused. Once again imitation is promoted.
