I mean if you really think gun control will save lives, despite that not being proven true, wouldn't you want to ban the guns that are involved in most deaths? In 2009, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 66.9% of all homicides in the United States were perpetrated using a firearm. Two-thirds of all gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides. Of the 30,470 firearm-related deaths in the United States in 2010, 19,392 (63.6%) were suicide deaths, and 11,078 (36.4%) homicide deaths. 75% of gun homicides are committed with a handgun. 4% with rifles, all rifles, not just assault weapons. 5% shotguns. Not that I support any gun restrictions, but at least don't be complete tools with your attempts at taking away my liberty OH ! Almost forgot, Connecticut has bans on defined 'assault weapons,' which includes selective fire firearms unless purchased before October 1, 1993, and a limited list of semiautomatic AR, AK, and SKS variants. However, it does not restrict magazine capacity. Guess that isn't working out so well.
