Are you telling me these other items don't have any other purpose? So a baseball bat is not for baseball, a steak knife isn't for cutting steak or food and gasoline isn't for powering engines, matches aren't for lighting a fire and cars aren't for transporting humans? What were assault rifles intended for personal protection? If you did ban assault weapons for civilian ownership what dual purpose would society be missing out on in the same way as the other items?
When someone shoots a bunch of people with a military style weapon, at the very least they were doing what the weapon was intended for. (Be it legal or not) Cars at least serve a dual purpose. Why the hell would you ban cars? To kill someone with a car either qualifies as a negligent misuse or an accident. To kill several or more people with an assault weapon and high capacity clip is using it for its original intended purpose. Why is it we would ban cars again? If you hand out live grenades, dynamite and RPGs on the streets people would start dragging those into theaters, schools and malls too. Good thing we don't hand out live grenades, dynamite and RPGs!
