Give someone a gun which can only hold 6 shots and he needs to reload or carry multiple guns to kill people, so they have a chance to flee or overpower him.
Give him an automatic weapon with multiple shots, 30-100 rounds per minute and you have mass murder with little chance of overpowering.
Gun control should seek to control the weapons of mass destruction.
I do not think the founding fathers envisaged people walking around with automatic assault rifles or gattling guns!
Sick society or civilised one where you need a gun to feel safe?
