Should the AR-15 be banned?

2/21/2018

In the wake of the Florida shooting the debate on gun control is being brought back up. Rather than having a discussion on that debate though we are going to be more specific, and discuss banning the AR-15 rifle. But before we do I would like to take a moment to mourn the passing of:

 

  1. Carmen Schentrup, 16
  2. Meadow Pollack, 18
  3. Peter Wang, 15
  4. Nicholas Dworet, 17
  5. Luke Hoyer, 15
  6. Alaina Petty, 14
  7. Jaime Guttenberg, 14
  8. Martin Duque Anguiano, 14
  9. Alyssa Alhadeff, 14
  10. Helena Ramsay, 17
  11. Joaquin Oliver, 17
  12. Cara Loughran, 14
  13. Gina Montalto, 14
  14. Alexander Schachter, 14
  15. Christopher Hixon, 49 (Athletic Director)
  16. Aaron Feis, 37 (Football Coach)
    • A real hero who used his own body as a shield to protect his students
  17. Scott Beigel, 35 (teacher)

We understand this is a difficult and emotional topic so a word of caution before we begin. Please remember the code of conduct is still in effect even if you disagree with other’s opinions on the topic you still must address each other with mutual respect.

At least president Trump would have run in there unarmed and messed up that shooter. It's true, he said so himself! Totally believable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXRZpD973c4

They were never intended for civilian use, and I believe the designer would have advocated a ban.
