The best argument I've seen recently for banning this style of weapon comes from the corporations involved. I'm linking to a video where they show off some nonsense that actually clarified the other side's arguments: They're lying about what their weapons even are and how people should use them. See the video for this "Pistol Stabilizing Brace" where you see a guy firing what is obviously a small rifle in some sort of nonsense way to make it not illegal to call that thing a pistol.

I spent my whole life being told by conservatives that they don't want to think beyond "If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck" and then they pretend this stupid shit looks fine to them.

This guy looks like somebody did a bad job of linking a gun model to the player model. As if he just switched the rifle model into the same positions they used for the pistol model.

It looks like that dumb scene in Once Upon a Time In Mexico where they gave Antonio Banderas fake guns and added all of the muzzle flash and bullets later. He's flopping around on his back with a rifle in each hand and they're just swinging around wildly while he pretends to fire them.
