WOW, I don't think I've ever read such a bigoted, hateful, uninformed piece of writing in my life. I own a couple of those rifles that utilize Magpul products, including the standard 30 round magazines. I also posses a bachelor's degree from CSU, a masters degree from Regis University, all of my own teeth, my own home on my own land (both of which are clean, and not in any state of disrepair), only one cat, one dog, four horses and a pony, and my paid-for '03 truck does have an NRA sticker on it, as will the new one I replace it with later this year. And if you do some research, with actual facts, you would realize that I am more the rule, not the exception, when it comes to gun owners. And as a teacher, father, husband, and tax payer, I'd guess I'm what most would consider a productive member of society. And for some reason, when I grab my AR, and stuff a standard 30 round magazine, I don't start shooting kids, propane tanks, nor do I start butt-stroking three legged puppies. You see, I feel no evil at all, and this object does not take over my brain and make me do evil things. I guess mine is broken.
Bottom line, you are missing the whole point. Your bigoted rant was you own brain rationalizing your fear/hatred of an object. I can see from your passion that you really want to try to stop violence in our cities. I get it and I agree with you. However blaming/banning the object will not prevent crime, never has.
And I will offer that if you would like to find out more about these objects, I would be happy to provide you with information and links to reliable statistics and studies about this topic. Also, I'm in Elbert County, so I'm pretty close to you and I would be happy to take you to a range and let you shoot one of these rifles.
