Re: Saying the same thing...
You're right and regardless of any legislation that might be put in place and short of a door-to-door roundup confiscating them..there is not much that can be done. What constitutes an assault weapon? What it looks like? How many rounds it can shoot in a period of time. How many bullets it holds before it needs to be reloaded..e.g A Glock can have a magazine that holds as many as 33 rounds and it can be a semi-automatic..the AR15 is not an assault weapon although it looks like one. The trigger must be pulled to get off each shot.
My point is that both are capable of mass shootings if that is the goal. All guns would have to be confiscated or at least those that hold more than six in the chamber. If good citizens would somehow comply, criminals would not.
It still boils down the to the shooter..either a nutcase or a terrorist.
