We’re hearing a lot about how the failed AWB of 1994 would have prevented the Aurora shooting because it would have made unavailable the AR-15 that the shooter used.
The AWB was all about *scary looking* rifles. In other words, it was about *cosmetics*. It did nothing else.
You can use a *hunting rifle* version of a popular *assault weapon*, and what you have is a very normal looking rifle with exactly the same firepower as its military counterpart.
Make no mistake, this is all about the Left trying to control inanimate objects because they are too scared to actually come out and try to control the nutjobs committing the crimes. We need swift jury trials, limited to one appeal, and sentences carried out within 90 days of convicton. Period.
THAT would be a deterrent. As it is now, this orange-haired whackjob knows he’s going to get 3 hots and a cot for at least 15 years, maybe even 20, before he gets whacked.
What kind of justice is that for those wo lost loved ones?
