    Police around the nation have for years begged for assault weapons like those used in Dallas to be taken off the streets. They're overwhelmed.

    If you claim to support the police, why not support them by supporting common sense regulation of these weapons and clips, etc?

    Thinking that a ban on assault weapons would somehow get them out of the hands of criminals, who by definition don't follow the law, is not common sense, it's lack thereof. The government in question would only be weakening the ability of citizens to defend themselves, while criminals would continue being able to use them. We've already had MANY stupid threads like this.

    We don't take that approach legally to any other issue relative to the law do we, not one.

    Only the political pets of the likes of Bamma and Klinton and Schumer. Everything you mentioned would have had zero impact on any mass shooting including the one in Dallas perpetrated by a methed out racist pig.

    Other laws don't hinder the ability of citizens to defend themselves.

    Neither would this one done properly, you have never defended yourself with a gun, much less an assault style weapon. You need home protection? Shot gun, covered, and much better.

    It's already illegal to shoot police officers with any type of weapon.

    And there are reports the shooter didn't use an "assault" weapon.
    Whatever that means.

    If someone is holding a knife to the throat of a loved one and you have a shotgun how do you plan on hitting one and NOT the other?

    Not really. Many woman and people of small stature have a hard time with shot guns. My Mother and Wife being a couple who cant manage them. An AR15 on the other hand they can manage. I have defended my self with a gun. .556 does nasty things to flesh.

    Yes, it would, laws don't prevent criminals from using assault weapons, but it would prevent citizens from using them for self protection. Assault weapons are more effective than a shot gun, show guns fire 1-2 shots, then have to be reloaded, and won't shoot as far. I also just pointed out that criminals will ignore the law. So, you're hindering citizens and doing nothing to criminals. the law is counterproductive.
