Or do you conveniently ignore that Cho killed all those people at Va Tech with handguns? Anyone that villifies semi automatic weapons is ignorant of the reality of modern firearms and is only buying into the media and political hype. The fact is that in Newtown and Aurora, the shooters are the problem, not the weapon. They could easily have killed as many and possibly more with 2 glocks.
I know some things are hard for you to believe (like what Viagra was developed for and what it became LOL), but just because YOU lack the capacity to grasp a concept does not make the concept any less valid.
