FL: Assault weapons ban could have saved these 929 victims

In the following nine mass shootings, there were 974 shooting victims (264 killed & 706 wounded) to wit:

...

If the shooter had not used an assault weapon, 929 of the victims probably would not have been killed or wounded.

I do not know how congressional members opposed to banning assault weapons can sleep at night. They prioritize reelection over the safety of U.S. citizens, which includes Rep. Vern Buchanan.

Ed.: I guess even the shooters that had multiple weapons couldn't have used them, nor could they have reloaded them.

And if wishes were horses beggars would ride them.


High body counts can be achieved with other kinds of weapons. In the Virginia Tech school massacre, Cho used two handguns and killed more people than other school shootings.
A lever action rifle would work real well too.

Once and for all, you can't ban what you erroneously and disingenuously deem "assault weapons". They are no such thing. They are semiautomatic firearms that cosmetically resemble real assault weapons (i.e. select-fire, full-auto capable firearms).

In 1939 the SCOTUS in U.S. v. Miller ruled that arms "in common use" that have "some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia" and/or are "any part of the ordinary military equipment" are within the ambit of Second Amendment protection.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. Winston Churchill
