Interesting how mass shootings in 90% of all cases happen with illegally posessed guns. You know, the ones that were illegal for shooters to get before the ban AND after the ban. It's not even a huge deal to begin with since in 2011 less than 0.012 percent of deaths have ties to "assault weapons". Simple hand guns are far more deadly in that regard.
Overall gun violence in the United States has been dropping for decades now. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report shows that in 2003, the last year before the ban expired, the U.S. murder rate was 5.7 per 100,000 people. By 2011, the murder rate fell to 4.7 per 100,000.
>high capacity magazines
This didn't do jack shit. "High capacity magazines" (ones that hold more than 10 bullets) have been banned since the 90s and they're ridiculously easy to make.

The only thing that has increased are shootings by mentally disturbed individuals. Which makes me think that the dropping mental stability of people due to lack of mental health care in the US is what's to blame here, that's what my original post was about.
