One thing I should mention is terminology: "assault weapon" is a politicians' (as opposed to an industry) term that's become a moving target, redefined often to expand its reach. It's a tactic that establishes mistrust and further polarizes people.
I see fractured discussions in my network that often preach to their own choirs. But mutual understanding can only happen by talking to the other side in good faith.
Drivers require a drivers license.
On airplanes, we can’t take more than 100ml because some idiot tried to make a bomb with water
On planes we have to take off our shoes because some idiot tried to make a bomb / conceal a weapon.
We have made so many stringent and what seemingly unnecessary laws for the 99.999% of people that are not criminals on planes or are not crazy drivers so why are guns the exception to this? Why is it that the NRA or other folks believe that one restriction will lead to other restrictions?
