Assault rifles should be banned

While I support the right to bear arms, assault rifles have no place in a civilized society. These weapons should clearly be outlawed. I realize that this will upset a great many gun owners, to whom we should offer our thoughts and prayers. If thoughts and prayers are sufficient for those who have lost a child in a mass shooting, it should be sufficient to anyone who has lost a gun. How many tragedies is it going to take before we have a sensible discussion on gun control?
