IIRC it was cited in another thread that the FBI's 2011 stats said like, some 328 people were killed with a rifle (all the categories). 728 were beaten to death with hands/fists/etc.
Ask them at what kinetic energy number does "high powered" begin?
Cite the skokie police shooting where 51 rounds were fired, 17 hits from a .45 to bring down the perp, and ask them what "reasonable" magazine capacity is precisely.
Ask them what the NICs acronym stands for, and if they've seen a 4473, and if CT had an AWB on the books.
Remind them the federal AWB was in place during Columbine.
It *feels* good to us, comforting to us, to cite the constitution, our favorite thinkers, etc. But when you educate these people on things they've never been exposed to, when you present the other side? AT the very lease you inject doubt into the gears of their arguments. The megaphone's volume comes down, and you will convince others who are open.
Good points to use.
