The general problem with assault weapons has to do with social psychology and linguistic psychology. Ask yourself these questions. Which sounds/looks more menacing and looks more dangerous? A teddy bear, or an assault weapon? And since gun makers make high capacity clips for pistols, what is the purpose of limiting how many rounds a person can have in their gun? The gun owner can always figure out a place to buy more ammo clips. It’s similar to Michael Bloomberg’s idea of limiting soft drinks to only 16 ounces. A person can always buy more than one drink. And what do assault weapons and pistols have in common? With proper aim, they will kill the target. Other than that, the issue with assault weapons is purely cosmetic. Enjoy the photographs.
