But can someone please explain to me why anyone should have the right or the need for automatic and semi-automatic assault weaponry other than SWAT officers or military personnel?!
I know this goes against all that is Libertarian, but what good ever came from civilian ownership of such high powered weapons of mass killing? Yes, the Joker-wanna-be could have used many things available online to kill those people in the movie theater, but the guns made it that much easier and more efficient. I think I'm with Bill Kristol on this one.
The only argument I've heard is: If the government takes over, they can't possess all the high powered weapons! Really?! And I was worried about my tin foil hat for the Fair Share PBS game?
I just don't get it... Maybe because I have lived my life in a very urban setting? It'll be interesting to see if anyone can make me see the "other side..."
