America is caught up in an important war and the problem is that very few people realize this fact. The war in which I am referring is whether or not to ban assault weapons. Now I’m not proposing a complete ban on all guns as that would be a violation of the 2nd Amendment which we will examine later. However, as we will see in the examples highlighted below, assault weapons are not normal guns and consequently I believe that they must be banned from civilian use.
What are the problems? Let’s explore this further. I will demonstrate for you the lethality of assault weapons and a few of the common misuses of the weapon
. We will discuss the availability of the weapon, shooting spree killings, home defense, and use of the weapons for hunting.
