This is a similar argument as that used by politicians who wish to ban so-called “assault weapons“. They argue that guns designed primarily to kill people should be banned, on the theory that citizens don’t need guns to kill other citizens. This argument completely ignores self defense. Self defense is the main reason that I and many people own firearms. Having a gun that was designed for self defense is critical, as a “sporting” gun is often dangerously inadequate for self defense purposes.
