5 COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT GUNS & MASS SHOOTINGS

Quote:It appears that the gun control debate is being dominated by bad information and that the chance for thoughtful and meaningful dialogue — let alone solutions — is being lost.

So what’s the truth behind those so-called “assault weapons”?

1. DON’T CONFUSE MILITARY AND CIVILIAN-STYLE RIFLES
“AR-15s that are currently being manufactured for the civilian markets are semi-automatic, which means only one projectile is fired with each trigger pull,” explains Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense.

“This puts them functionally in the same category with greater than 50 percent of all guns sold in the United States in 2012,” he adds.

2. WILL A BAN ON AR-15S OR SIMILAR RIFLES PUT AN END TO MASS SHOOTINGS AND VIOLENT GUN CRIMES?












3. DO MASS MURDERERS USUALLY USE GUNS?
“According to the FBI’s website, during the time period between 2007 until 2011, there were 8,967 people that were murdered with knives or cutting instruments; during that same time period, there were 3,918 people that were murdered with either rifles or shotguns,” Hunter told TheBlaze

4. WHAT’S THE POINT OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT ANYWAY?
“In fact, the Second Amendment was clearly designed with the mindset of protecting America’s citizens from people like Senator Feinstein: government officials, who want to impose their own will on the citizens of this country by any means necessary. The Second Amendment gives the American citizens the right to own firearms in order to protect themselves, their family, their property, their freedoms, and the idea that this country’s government is ‘of the people, by the people and for the people’ of this country,” he adds, citing a notable quote from American statesman Daniel Webster:

5. MAYBE WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH GUN LAWS
“Nationally, there are currently 243 pages of federal gun laws and 480 pages of state gun laws in effect.”

Bet you didn’t know that.
Ladies of the Second Amendment

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
