Of the 39k gun related deaths per year only about 1,600 are from rifles of all types. Meanwhile close to 2/3 of gun related deaths are caused by suicide. We need mental healthcare reform far more than we need as assault weapons ban. Further depending on which sets of stats between 85-373 people die from mass shootings. The FBI says 85 people the Gun Violence Archive says 373. Either way you are more likely to be killed by a police officer than in a mass shooting. Please stop this fear mongering surrounding semiautomatic rifles. They are not the problem.
