Over the past two decades, Democrats have focused on three major proposals for reform. They are: 1) That all private transfers should be contingent upon a federal background check; 2) That firearms that look a certain way should be classed as “assault weapons” and prohibited from sale; and 3) That civilians should be forbidden from buying magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. None of these proposals intersect with what happened in Alexandria.

Alas, the errors don’t end there. Frum and co. also berated Virginia for being among the 40+ states to permit open carry. But Alexandria, where the shooting took place, doesn’t permit open carry, a fact that prompted one of the most hilariously convoluted arguments I have seen in my life. Others talked about both “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines. But as the FBI notes, the firearm used was an SKS in 7.62mm, which has never been classed as an “assault weapon,” and which wasn’t included in the ban that obtained from 1994-2004. Further, when he bought it, Hodgkinson’s SKS was unable to take “high-capacity” magazines at all; rather, it came with an internal 10-round box magazine. Per the report, Hodgkinson seems to have modified it to take external magazines after the purchase, a change that raises the fair question of how effective any at-sale restrictions can really be in stopping the determined. Either way, even after he modified it there is no evidence that Hodgkinson introduced a larger than 10-round external magazine (that’s the standard for the modified SKS), or that, if he did, it had any effect on the outcome.

Stop using reason facts and logic. That confuses liberals.

Facts will not matter to the Demwits. they are emotional arguers, not rational ones...... they simply cannot learn to consider the other sides points, therefore they never reach a compromise. .

The news is, 'Would James Comey's FBI release such a report?'

Or Eric Holders Justice Dept

or Loretta Lynch's Justice Dept....

 Gun control is not about saving lives.

What's this "Republican assassination attempt" OP refers to?  Last I heard it was a nonpartisan unpremeditated random assault with a RUSSIAN HIP FIRED MURDER CANNON that should never be mentioned again, except to support reasonable restrictions on gun ownership.

VA passed State preemption years back.

Open Carry is legal in Alexandria.

It did not used to be, however.
