    I read it. There were no statistics or listing of the mass killers' weapons.

    - I agree with you on societies lack of respect for each other and life is probably at an all time high or low however you want to look at it. Since we haven't really done anything to change the gun laws since the 2008 law you brought up and it's not being enforced because the names of the crazy people aren't and haven't been added due to cost, we will never know if they will reduce these crimes.

    didn't work. won't work. I ask you again - have you ever seen any mass shootings at the level of the OK bombing? 9/11?

    This still doesn't answer Reba's question.
    Now whats funny is the first paragraph, ALL AMMO does this SMH..... so whats different? Nothing. NOW my question is how many mass shooters had 100 round drums on their AR's? That's a hella lot more ammo yet they still had 30 round clips, so that invalidates all others because they are capitable of more damage yet they weren't used, wouldn't you think they would be more prepared to do such a damning task? THE REAL CURLPIT OF ALL THE MASS SHOOTINGS OR ANY SHOOTINGS IS, THE NEWS GIVES THEM THEIR 15 MINUTES OF FAME. Stop reporting them and making it a party for them and they will stop. it is just attention seeking from the shooter to be noticed and this has been an issue in the past as well. this article was really a joke on the ammo, if it was soooooo deadly, why isn't it allowed to deer hunt? because the ammo is too small that's why. There are other ammo that does more damage but cheap ammo compared to more pricey ammo is their choices, not the gun. You can have any gun you want, make the ammo pricey and you will only fire to put food on the table or protect yourself... then again, criminals don't care, they will find a way around getting their hands on it. Make it more strict to get ammo, engrave names on casings and back of slug of those who buy it.... Cradle to Grave type deal, the buyer is responsible from purchase til that ammo is spent.

    The Oklahoma bombing was domestic terrorism conducted by a number of individuals so your comparing apples to oranges, also there is not a mass bombing happening everyday in the U.S. like there is with mass shooting(church shooting was the 377th of the year and there has been a mass shooting everyday in the U.S. since Sandy Hook happened) and I don't remember any guns being used in the OK bombing. So once again I will remind you, this thread is about GUN CONTROL, not terrorist or terrorism control!

    Keep you head firmly buried in the sand. What about all the other mass shootings that have happened in the U.S. so far this year? The church shooting was the 377th of the year. How many of the other shootings garnered much more than local coverage in the newspaper buried in the back of the paper? No the problem is with the lax rules regarding gun purchases we as a nation are allowing people who should never be allowed to own a gun the right to have and use it!

    Let me understand you clearly. Are you saying if it were up to you, you think sophisticated weapons like AR should be 'very, very expensive', not prohibited? If so, how much do you think they cost? Who are a small portion of the population?

    The 200m is an old number. We believe that the correct number is much higher — somewhere between 412 and 660 million. Why isn't there 200mil or more deaths by guns/mo?/yr? Because the majority of us are responsible, and law abiding. Do not let a few bad apples dictate what the rest of us can and cannot do/own.

    I personally think they should be outlawed, but if not than make them cost in the neighborhood of $20k. The small portion of the population is those that can afford to buy them. I would also outlaw all high capacity clips, drums, etc. as well as bump stocks and trigger cranks. And I would not grandfather in anything. Is that clear enough!

    Again, the wealthy and the criminal could then be armed, and the honest average wage earner would be left out in the cold.

    BTW, who gets the money? The manufacturer?

    By not grandfathering, that means you would have authorities raid Americans' houses and confiscate (steal) their weapons and accessories, without compensation.
