Banning Conversion Kits Won't Prevent Massacres. Ban The Guns.

Watch this video and see what you can do with a semi-automatic weapons.

Here's what no one really wants to talk about: All you need to convert a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic weapon is... a rubber band.

Which, from what I read, is a felony. But who's going to stop you for criminal possession of a rubber band with intent to commit a crime?

Banning things like bump stocks aren't going to change anything. It will only make people more creative.

Banning assault weapons probably works better than not. We can't tell for sure, because so many of them were grandfathered. But they were also replaced by large magazine guns.

Get rid of one weapon of mass destruction, and they switch to another one. Gee, maybe they should all be illegal? Or heavily insured. I mean, 42 guns? I'd like to see what an insurance underwriter would say about that.

And another thing, while I'm on the subject.

We need to see the pictures. We're allegedly grownups; if the gun lobby is going to run this country, we should have to see the results when these destructive bullets have their way with human flesh -- especially the children of Newtown.

When children are killed with guns in America, we see pictures of happy, smiling children. Birthday parties, classrooms. If we're going to stand by and let them get mowed down, we should at least have to face the outcome.
