By the logic of gun-control proponents, firearms are the problem and not the people misusing them. Therefore, we have a lot more banning to do in addition to outlawing assault rifles, which Joe Biden promised was “just the beginning.”
In 2011, all rifles combined accounted for 323 murders, while shotguns were used in 356 murders; this in a country of 300 million people. So it only stands to reason that if banning rifles and shotguns is an effective way to fight crime, then handguns need to go too: they were used in 6,220 murders. Once citizens allow the premise that objects are responsible for crime and not people, there’s no end to the absurdity of government bans.
