Which is fine. But there's no logical reason for it. Didn't I just list a bunch of mass shootings that didn't involve a HCAW?
(Assuming there will be a HCAW ban in the future):
I know part (if not all) of your opposition to removing now-illegal weapons which were previously legally purchased is that there is no precedent for it.
To which I'll say: for everything that has ever happened, there once was no precedent for that action before it happened the first time. Sometimes you establish
Which I know makes a lot of people nervous because of the "Now here it starts, what will they take away next?" I get that.
But if we can agree that Joe Citizen does not need to own HCAW and they become illegal, there is no valid reason to allow people to retain private ownership of them. "No precedent", to me, is not a valid reason. It's why the previous AW ban was ineffective. And it's why the next one will be ineffective if it doesn't happen then.
