"A key narrative in the push to ban assault weapons is that they are exceptionally powerful, firing rounds with a special capacity to pierce body armor and pulverize human bodies. The AR-15 infamously used in the Sandy Hook massacre uses the same 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition as its cousin the M16. The 'NATO' designation seems to validate Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and company’s fear that these are military weapons which do not belong in the hands of civilians. The language of the Second Amendment and historical context in which it was conceived fundamentally undermine this logic:" ...

The more magnificoes he gets behind his Mayors Against Illegal Guns the more gun owners and advocates of the Second Amendment see him as their enemy.

"Is Michael Bloomberg helping or hurting his cause? When the New York mayor’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, launched its $12 million advertising campaign to pressure lawmakers into supporting gun control legislation, the negative reaction from the [NRA] was predictable, but a week after the launch, the reaction from potential allies has also been cool. ... Bloomberg’s effort to mobilize voters is less effective because it is also energizing gun control opponents. It’s pressuring lawmakers in the wrong way, too. Any legislator targeted by Bloomberg’s campaign who ultimately supports gun control legislation will look like he or she is being bowled over by a nanny-state mayor who wants to tell their constituents how to live their lives." ...
