What an "Assault Rifle" ban sounds like to me:

"Well since no guns used in mass shootings have ever been painted pink, lets make it so all guns have to be pink, that will reduce mass shootings!"

@freemo the discussion around "gun control" in this country is so disappointing to me. There are a number of things we could do that would reduce gun deaths (improve background checks in multiple ways, purchase cool-down periods, require safety measures, require training - maybe provide training in High School). All short of, "ban guns".


@freemo "ban guns" is so polarizing, as is "stop the mass shootings". I'd like to see several other moderate, broadly popular and acceptable, measures be put in place at the federal level.

Unfortunately those things can't get traction due to the gun lobby. And the next stop on the argument train is "ban some guns".
