For all of you who defend the 2nd amendment, would you consider an assault rifle ban or a ban on large clips? The shooter in CT used an assault rifle for all the deaths. Each victim was shot multiple times. Does this infringe on the peoples right to bear arms?
Could you please explain to me what an "assault" rifle is and why it is more dangerous than any other rifle? What makes an "assault" rifle an "assault" rifle? Should all rifles be banned or just your so called "assault" rifles.
The answer to your second question, yes banning these does infringe on your right to bear arms. What is confusing about "shall not be infringed upon"?
