Interesting! The most interesting applicable stat i can find right now is from 2014. Out of the 6,429 illegal firearms seized by chicago police,only 3 were "assault" rifles.Recent reports are that some gangs have increased their firepower but let's face it the gangs will get what they want no matter what,right? :)

Only 364? That number sounds suspiciously low. What is your source?

Hi, O_M. Statista.com but that's just " rifles" not handguns the majority. I just realized these stats are '16 the last year available apparently when i googled '17 so any update welcome. Handguns were 7,100, blunt objects 472.Just sayin' crazy finds a way and rifles aren't the weapon of choice, just sayin':)

That means only an _incredibly_ tiny portion of the 300 million firearms in the US are actually used for illegitimate purposes.

Do you even know what AR stands for? What’s the difference in ARs and other rifles?
Do you even know what kind of round goes through an AR?

You don’t understand guns so therefore you cannot make an argument against them. Why don’t you try and understand what they are instead of feeding only what certain media outlets want you to know.

AR doesn’t stand for assault rifle. It stands for armalite rifle. It’s the two letters for the company that made them. It shoots a 5.56/.223

The .223 is one of the most widely shot rounds. It’s no different than a mini 14 rifle. It’s also similar to many other rounds. It’s not very powerful but inexpensive and that’s why people like to shoot them. It’s not a hunting round. The AR is no different than any other rifle other than it looks different. Its “military style” but I cringe at that because all guns at some point were “military style.” It’s versatile and has many add ons for hobby shooters. It’s light weight and great to take out for protection against wild animals because it holds enough rounds and can kill hogs and coyotes that can become startled and attack farmers and hunters.

Get your facts straight first.

So. 1600 from knives and 656 deaths from feet and hands are ok because it’s only a handful at a time? So deaths are going to happen but you’re ok as long as it’s not from guns? That makes a lot of sense.

Your rebuttal makes no sense. More people die from weapons that are not a firearm. You’re ok with that though... such a small number due from guns, so why the push to get rid of them?

Want to ban alcohol as well? In 2015 over 10,000 people died from alcohol related car accidents. Probably don’t want to ban alcohol because you might responsibly enjoy a drink or two. Well, I responsibly enjoy shooting my guns. So the simple fact you only want to ban something that you don’t participate in is subjective and laws shouldn’t be passed only for someone personal opinion.
