Will an assault weapon ban stop mass murders?
Curious what your thoughts are. White House and admin are poised to do something in the wake of what has happened. But is that really the area that needs to be focused on? Or is it a complex issue that deals with many issues like our culture, mental health, etc...

No it will not stop them. Those intent on killing will find a way. It will be a less efficient way but still in the end it doesn't matter. Where there is a will, there is a way..

It's an extremely complex issue but we won't treat it like one. We'll ban a certain type of gun instead and wonder why it still keeps happening.

Oh absolutely that will stop them! Outlaw those evil assualt weapons and everything will be fine. I am sure no one would break the law and possess one anyway. But that's not going far enough. We also need to make carrying them onto school property illegal. We should also make it illegal for anyone under 21 years of age to purchase one. Then we should pass a law to make murder illegal. Sarcasm/off

Of course there are already laws in place for these things, passing more laws to make the law abiding even more vulnerable seems like sheer stupidity to me.

Re: Will an assault weapon ban stop mass murders?
No it will not. You can't prevent crazy people bent on murder from going on the attack. You can only stop them with equal or superior force.

The worst mass murder at a school in US history did not involve any kind of gun at all.

"On May 18, 1927, 45 people, mostly children, were killed and 58 were injured when disgruntled and demented school board member Andrew Kehoe dynamited the new school building in Bath, Michigan out of revenge over his foreclosed farm due in part to the taxes required to pay for the new school." [link to freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com]
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787
