Im not for banning all firearms. Hell if you've seen the "Post Your Pic" thread I have proof of that (being as that I have a collection of firearms and ammunition for them). I am however for the banning of firearms designed for the sole purpose of killing human beings without regard to innocence. While any firearm may be used as such, assault weapons have no purpose OTHER than killing human beings.
Hunters do not use them to shoot the local dove and/or deer population.
I understand the difference between a fully automatic weapon and one that is designed for hunting. Banning them doesn't solve the problem, though. Making something illegal doesn't make it go away.
