On the black market, illegally, they go for under $1000. So what's that make you? 0-45 now? Wanna try for 0-46?

I was not talking about M16. I was talking about weapons that can kill. They should start from $5-10thou.
M16 should NOT be accessible to general public.
Regardless, Lanza used at least 2 powerful weapons possibly modified for rapid reload&fire.
This should be very hard to do.

I know your brain is broken, so I'll try to use single-syllable words (get mommy to help if you still don't understand):

1) Making something artificially expensive only creates black markets.
2) Where the FVCK are you getting that any of his guns were modified in any way, shape, or form?

"M16 should NOT be accessible to general public."

They're NOT!

Proof of the rest of your bizarre and unlikely claims??

Now you are are a REAl moron; "weapons than can Kill"; well how about:
tree limbs

The list is endless, are you going to BAN them all?

BTW a .223/5.56 is NOT a "HIGH POWERED" weapon NOR are 9 mm and 40 caliber hand guns.
A WW2 Enfiled 303 is high powered, an ol M1 from WW2 amd Korea is high powered, a 50 caliber is high powered, a .357 Mag is high powered. There are MANY rifles and handguns that arehigh powered but not what this nut job used.

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
