After Las Vegas and the death and carnage in Las Vegas, there is no justification for not banning assault weapons.
They are weapons of war. They must be banned. Here is why:
“At least 20 rifles were found in the hotel room of the gunman in the Las Vegas mass shooting, a law enforcement official confirmed, along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Among the guns found were AR-15-style assault rifles, another law enforcement official said. The gunman used a hammer to smash out the windows, both law enforcement officials said. It was not clear whether the weapon was a sledgehammer.”

This is getting simply ludicrous. It is time to stop this nonsense of protecting guns. It is time to start the common sense of protecting human life.
