Let's make the question simpler for you, ye of little brain.

In the incidents in which a mass shooter has been armed with one or more assault weapons and one or more non-assault weapons, which have been the primary weapons used?

I can only think of two.   Aurora fired his shotgun first then used his AW for approximately 30 rounds.  Sandy Hook used his AW for an unknown number of rounds.

An analogy...

If you are going to drive from Detroit to Cleveland and yu have a corvette and a pick up which will you drive.

Corvette. Its cooler.

Does that make it the only choice, or even the best choice?

It is possible that multiple handguns and shotguns are more dangerous because they force you to aim.

So again is there ANY reason to believe that an HCAW ban will do any good.
1/28/2013 4:21 PM
Wow.

Did you really just attempt to justify HCAW because you don't have to aim?

Wow.

That's incredibly stupid, even for you.

Do you even realize that's what you said?

What I said was it might be less dangerous to have a shooter with an HCAW because he doesnt have to aim, he just points and fires.

A pistol takes more skill. Shotguns take no skill whatsoever. So you might be a higher kill percentage with pistols and shotguns as opposed to HCAWs.

Again this is all trying to show that an HCAW ban will accomplish nothing and lead to calls for a more wide ranging ban.

That is so incredibly unbelievably stupid.  EVEN for you.  Holy ****.

I know what he's trying to say.   He's saying it poorly.   And, even if he did word it properly, I'm not sure he's right.

When you're firing into a crowd, aim isn't nearly as important as volume.    Of course, he used "percentage" in the follow-up post so maybe he was trying to weasel his way out of his dumbassery.

Accuracy's not important with HCAW.  Just point in a general direction and shoot, and you'll probably kill somebody.  Maybe not the specific person you may have been targeting, but as long as somebody's dead, that's close enough.

Yeah, that's a  great argument in favor of HCAW.

At least I am stadning up and defending my position.

Can anyone accept my challenge and explain how an HCAW ban will solve any problem.

You dont just get to say because they wont have HCAWs because it isnt enough.

Explain a scenario where it helps...
1/28/2013 8:03 PM
Defending your position with stupid statements isn't helping. 
1/28/2013 8:07 PM
You're not defending your position.  You're making a massively retarded argument that makes no sense.  

Check that . . . your argument actually is an argument against HCAW because, in your own words, they kill indiscriminately.

A HCAW ban is one of many components of a solution that attempts to cut down on the frequency and scope of mass shootings.

If this were a video game maybe I'd care about kill percentage.  On the other hand, in the real world, if you fire off 50 rounds with a HCAW with a fatal hit percentage of 15%, you just killed 7 or 8 people.  If you fire your 10 rounds from your handgun - which, incidentally, takes AT LEAST as much time as many automatics, and for most people significantly longer - and achieve 60% accuracy, you still have killed less people.  So explain again why I give a **** about kill percentage when the guy with the HCAW is firing 8 or 10 times as many rounds.

1/28/2013 11:33 PM
Again the point is that the HCAW will have no positive impact.
1/28/2013 11:55 PM
Which is a ridiculous point.  If you believe it you're even more of a moron than everyone thought.  You really think I can't kill more people with a HCAW than handguns?  I don't even think miketitty would spew bullshit like that.  Sure, you can kill a lot of people with a couple of handguns and/or shotguns.  But not nearly as many as with something automatic that holds a couple of hundred rounds.  Guns like that tend to be expensive, but they are currently on the market and legal.
