When was the last time someone was killed by a bayonet lug?

Police forensic scientist at Newtown hearing: ‘Assault weapons’ ban won’t work
“These are real numbers from real cases in a real city police department. This is not something made up or fabricated. High capacity magazines have been ‘banned’ before. It proved nothing and the ban was lifted a few years ago,” he said. “There are many guns in existence, since the 1860s, which hold more than 10 cartridges, the early Winchester lever action rifles, for example, and many tubefeed 22 caliber rifles. There are some modern firearms for which no other magazine exist. What do you propose we do with them?”

“In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed bayonet lugs, flash hiders, and collapsible stocks,” he testified. “In over forty years of being a firearm and tool mark examiner, I have never seen these components inflict any injury whatsoever on any person. In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed fully automatic firearms that have the capability of firing a single shot. Ladies and gentlemen, I really need help with that one.”

“We all agree that the Newtown case is a tragedy. I submit to you that you cannot legislate away insanity, which I think is the root cause of this case,” Robinson said. “Laws must be passed based on research and logical thinking, not on emotions.
Comment: Common sense gun control is keeping guns away from felons and crazies. There are probably enough laws on the books to address the felons. But these laws are not enforced.

  1. If we took concrete actions against insanity, politicians who write gun control laws would be locked up.

    Now don't get me wrong; this would be a good thing, but don't count on it happening! :^)
