From this point on, we need a simple statement to sum up our position on pending gun control legislation. Here it is. The previous assault weapons ban had no effect on crime whatsoever. The various state level bans have also had no effect on crime. The guns covered by these bans are infrequently used in crimes to begin with. Using statistical outliers to base legislation on is not prudent governance. Don't engage in emotional arguments, just present simple, irrefutable facts.
