There's no question that mass killings and pervasive violence have a corrosive effect on our culture. It is also true that disarming law-abiding citizens will not stop the violence.

Making semi-automatic weapons and magazines holding over a few rounds illegal will impact my ability keep and bear arms sufficient for personal protection and as a deterrent to tyranny. When fighting for your life not having to reload often might be the difference between living and dying. It will not stop a determined, organized attacker who doesn't care if he lives or dies from killing multiple innocent victims. How many people could have been killed if the Las Vegas shooter had carefully targeted individuals using several scoped bolt action rifles? How about lever actions?

The mass killings and violence are symptomatic of the economic, racial and political division pandemic in our nation. Taking my guns won't fix that.
