He thinks that if semi automatics were banned it would make it much harder for the shooter, the average joe or jane, to inflict harm on a mass number of people.

"Alcohol is not firearms. Everyone drinks alcohol whereas owning firearms is not really something everyone does,
Ask him if he thinks we should ban the 5 gallon Home Depot buckets and gasoline, in case somebody decides to fill the buckets, carry them into a target rich environment, dump them and drop a match.

Ask him if he thinks we should ban ball bats or fire pokers, because a 20 year old psycho could easily break into a kindergarten classroom and kill as many people as he wants to until somebody with a gun shows up to stop him: that would be 10 minutes in the case of Sandy Hook. Any doubt in his mind that one guy with a blunt instrument and 10 minutes could kill more than 22 little kids?

The only appropriate answer to a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun, on the scene when the incident happens.

You can not prevent nutters from doing crap like this by passing laws affecting only the rest of us.
