Poor, deer. They haven’t a chance. Anyone can legally purchase an assault rifle that spits out a round a second. You can kill the whole herd without reloading.
In case you are a really poor shot, you can reload using the 6,000 rounds you legally purchased. I submit that the only people who need such a weapon are our military and, perhaps, SWAT teams.
I used to check the Post List (deaths) from the Los Angeles County coroner on a weekly basis as part of my job. Although I was looking for certain types of deaths, I was horrified by the number of murders listed. More than 98 percent were shootings. If you could somehow get the guns away, you would see the murder rate drop dramatically.
