This century, there have been more than enough mass shootings for Congress to finally ban assault weapons. After all, people don't need weapons that fire rapidly just to fire back at a would-be killer. We don't need rapid-firing assault weapons in our community. And banning assault weapons won't defy the second amendment, since it would only limit their rights based on types of guns. Ordinary handguns/rifles/shotguns are enough, but rapid-firing weapons only benefit serial killers, amirite?
