I suppose the next peak is due any day now.

Let me offer some preemptive thoughts and prayers. Who knows, maybe preemptive thoughts and prayers will work.
Attamottamotta!

Support for specific gun control legislation usually peaks in the aftermath of high-profile mass shootings and then drops. Most Americans don't even know what an "assault" weapon is. It sounds scary so of course they'd want to ban it.


Gun nuts who want no restrictions at all can't even decide what assault weapons are. After every domestic terror attack, we discuss the same thing. And the same thing happens. No one, not even gun nuts, can agree what assault weapons are. I have used the exact definition of assault weapons gun nuts keep throwing out there only to be told I don't know what I am talking about. Using their own definition.

And the fact still remains we had fewer domestic terror attacks under the assault weapons ban than after. Maybe if we had stronger laws and ignored NRA, we would not have so many suburban voters and women demanding change after all these domestic terror attacks.


What is the definition that you use?
