As for home defense, if you wake me from my slumber and decide to threaten my family and home you will be met with a double barrel loaded with 3" buckshot, so there is really no need to aim. Just point and pull the trigger and everything within a 30' diameter is going down. Right after that I pick up my AR to check on my intruder. The pistol is my last choice given the three options.
Ironically the pistol requires much more regulation and paper work to own because it is so much easier to conceal and carry. You have a far greater chance of getting a pistol pulled on you than an assault weapon of any kind. I can pin a mag to five rounds and hunt with any rifle regardless of its classification, in other states ten shot mags can be used to hunt.
The weapons are not the problem, if they were killings would be at an all time high but they are not they are at historically low levels.

the media is concerned about turning this into a political issue then looking at the facts of the actual shooting. too many witness contradictions. moments after the shooting happened witnesses said they saw more than one shooter. then the morning after, a bunch of people who look like actors trying to force cry themselves to win an oscar go out of their way to say that there was only one shooter. then he shows up in court drugged up out of his mind, and now the judge bans any more footage. this all smells like ****. oh and guess what, obama signs the UN smalls arms treaty in two days.
