    Dallas, Baton Rouge massacres show need for assault rifle ban

    KING: Dallas, Baton Rouge massacres show need for assault rifle ban, can make trained cops think they’re under attack from small army


    In Dallas and Baton Rouge, Micah Johnson and Gavin Long killed eight police officers and shot 12 others. Based on the final act of each of their lives, many are calling them evil murderers. They were also well-trained military veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. From all accounts, both men were law-abiding citizens after their service.

    I say that not to compliment either of them, but to highlight the glaring limitations of America's gun laws. Johnson and Long, armed with vicious assault rifles designed to inflict catastrophic damage to the human body, used them to do just that.

    No type of background check would've stopped these men. Requiring gun training of all who purchase weapons would've been an easy hurdle for each of them. A waiting period wouldn't have been a problem. They didn't need a loophole to purchase their weapons.

    Our current gun laws, if anything, have men just like Johnson and Long in mind.

    The bottom line is that alongside hand grenades, plastic explosives, rocket launchers, and tanks, high powered assault rifles should not be available to the American public.

    They are weapons of war. They cause mass destruction. This is not an abstract theory, but a deadly American reality — and a predictable one at that.

    We have no idea where the next mass shooting will take place, and whose lives will be violently snatched from us next, but this much is clear, it won't be long from now. Micah Xavier Johnson.

    Omar Mateen, who shot and killed 49 club goers in Orlando earlier this summer, also legally owned the assault rifle he used. He, too, was seemingly a law-abiding citizen and a longtime security guard who would've easily passed through most of the current gun control measures being proposed across the country.

    A ban and complete eradication of assault rifles from the hands of everyday citizens is a reasonable reform.

    In the ten years before 2004, the manufacturing of new assault weapons was already banned in the United States. Nobody quite knows how many assault rifles are in circulation. One gun lobbying group estimates it could be up to 30 million of them now in circulation in this country. That's one assault rifle for just about every 10 people. In other words, the market is saturated with a weapon that can mow people down like weeds. Omar Mateen responsible for nightclub mass shooting in Orlando, Fla.

    They are making manufactures filthy rich, but they are literally tearing our country apart. We have hit a probability point where we have so many assault rifles in circulation that we can all but guarantee that they will be regularly and consistently abused and misused. I hesitate to even use that phrase, though, because the ugly truth is that Johnson, Long, Mateen, and dozens of others who used assault rifles in mass shootings actually used them for their original purpose — as violently fast, efficient killing machines.

    They are indefensible. They were designed that way. Police in Dallas and Baton Rouge were so overwhelmed by the weapons that every report for hours insisted that multiple gunmen must've been present. They weren't.

    Micah Johnson and Gavin Long acted alone, but assault rifles make even trained officers think they are under attack from a small army. In each case, random people who happened to be in the area were swooped up as suspects, interrogated, but later released when it was determined that the shooters, in spite of the mass carnage they left behind, acted alone.

    Of course, if our nation was willing to allow 20 babies to be gunned down by an assault rifle in Sandy Hook, without banning them or passing any meaningful gun control measures, it's reasonable to assume that we'll never do such a thing, but that just cannot be our answer.

    More guns aren't the answer. Our nation is already the most heavily armed nation in the world. We are the only nation in the world with more guns than people. If guns were going to protect us from mass shootings, they would've already done so by now.

    Ah yeah, let's conveniently leave out how many of those mass shootings that "weren't stopped" occurred in gun free zones. More false narrative, meanwhile another thread had the Police Chief's Association voting I believe at 84% that armed civilians, that can pass background checks, are a needed aid to stop these attacks...

          Luckily, it's a tabloidy New York paper. The reader base already lives under a ban. The paper isn't changing minds anywhere where freedom might be lost.

            If guns were going to protect us from mass shootings, they would've already done so by now.
            This one statement is so incredibly full of stupid it would have been funny had the author not been a seriously pandering fear monging fool. That one statement invalidates everything preceding it.
            Ask the survivors of any mass shooting what they wish they had at the moment it was occurring, the answer is usually "a gun".

            To restate what Suzanna Hupp said- "I want a gun to protect myself from the kind of people created by government policies encouraged by fools like the author."

              I love waking up to stupidity. It never ceases to amaze me.

              So 10-round magazine equipped semi-automatic AR-15 = assault rifle and is bad.

              Ok.... 10 round-magazine equipped semi-automatic M1As (or anything else for that matter) would be ok then?

              Cool.

              One of us should write an opinion piece or letter to the editor or something. I'm sure it would never be published though....🙁

                I've done that before (not with NY daily news). Never gets published and the response is cookie cutter.

                  Why am I not surprised?

                        Let's not look to the real problem. Anti-law enforcement media and a racist hate group looking to kill whites and police. Nah, those have nothing to do with it. The rifle made him do it.
