With all the talk of different type of guns, please clarify what type of gun was used in the Sandy Hook school.
Here is an article where they call it a semi-automatic assault rifle.
I can not find any reason someone would need to have this type of gun.
I have never owned a gun and never will.
A semi-automatic "assault" rifle is someone trying to make a gun sound scarier than it is, just like those pictures I posted make a regular .22 look scarier than it is. This is nothing more than a standard semi-automatic rifle like all the others sold at WalMart or your local gun store. It's safer than a shotgun because it has less recoil, and easier to aim than a pistol. It is a safer choice than either of those two options.
If you look at the chart at this link: http://pinkhandguns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/bulletcalibercomparison.jpg The round for that gun fall at the smallest end of the scale to the left, not the giant large game/combat ammo on the right. Cont'd
In other words, it was a rifle that is considered safe for women to use in competition shooting, home defense or even hunting. It's ideal for protection in dangerous situations like on a farm or ranch where you have to worry about natural predators.
