1. 99.999% of people who pass checks and buy these guns are going to use
Safely and responsibly.
2. Many will probably just sit in a safe or cabinet for years, not even being
3. Many of the guns in question are considered too small a caliber for hunting
large game (such as dear, elk).
4. The vast majority of these guns will not even kill 1 animal, much less
5. Almost every one of these guns will be used only on paper targets, cans,
ect at the range or at the local rock pit.
6. They are fun to shoot, and can be an enjoyable hobby.
7. There are many sporting events for them.
8. Many are made in the U.S. creating jobs and putting food on the table.
9. Many of the older "assault rifles" are historic collectibles.
10. What are you going to do when you are staring down a mob of zombies?
I don't own one, but hopefully I will be able to take my son or daughter to the range someday and teach them to safely operate one and enjoy the hobby.
