If all the privately owned assault rifles were confiscated in the US, mass shooting would disappear.

No. Mass shootings have been committed without assault rifles.

But look at how well all the "good guys with guns" are protecting the peaceful people - not well at all. If all the privately owned assault rifles were confiscated in the US, mass shooting would disappear.

Maybe, but no mass shootings have been committed without bullets. If all privately owned bullets were confiscated in the US, mass shootings would disappear.

*chuckle* Ever tried Google? The truth is out there for those willing to look for it.

Hand guns are by far the gun most often used in mass shootings.

https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019/08/16/what-the-da...

In 2017, handguns were involved in the majority (64%) of the 10,982 U.S. gun murders and non-negligent manslaughters for which data is available, according to the FBI. Rifles – the category that includes many guns that are sometimes referred to as “assault weapons”– were involved in 4%.

As I have stated numerous times, go ahead and ban them, just don't expect the number of murders to drastically reduce.

Hand guns are by far the gun most often used in mass shootings.

=========================================================================

But hand guns without high capacity magazines can not be killing machines like the AR-15 semi-automatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles are killing machines and have killed more people per incident than hand guns.

While handguns are the most commonly used weapon type in mass shootings, assault rifles gained attention in public discussion over the suitability or necessity of semi-automatic rifles for the purpose of self-defense. Semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15 have been used in a number of mass-shootings including the Waffle House shooting in Nashville, Tennessee, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and the El Paso, Texas Walmart mass shooting.

If you look at the number of deaths in the last 5 years you can see that high volume mass murders are perpetrated with assault rifles like the AR-15 semi-automatic rifles:

2019 - Dayton - AR-15 style semi-automatic pistol with 100 round magazine - 10 dead & 17 injured
2019 - El Paso - Wassennar semi-automatic rifle - 22 dead & 24 injured
2019 - Virginia Beach - ACP semi-automatic pistol with extended magazine - 13 dead & 4 injured

2018 - Thousand Oaks - Glock 21 semi-automatic pistol - 13 dead & 1 inured
2018 - Pittsburgh synagogue - AR-15 semi-automatic rifle - 11 dead & 7 injured
2018 - Stoneman Douglas High School - AR-15 semi-automatic rifle - 17 dead & 17 injured

2017 - Sutherland Springs church - Ruger 556 semi-automatic rifle - 27 dead & 20 injured
2017 - Las Vegas - AR-15 semi-automatic with bump stock - 59 dead & 422 injured

2016 - Orlando nightclub - SIG Sauer MCX semi-automatic rifle - 50 dead & 53 injured

2015 - San Bernardino - AR-15 semi-automatic rifle - 16 dead & 22 injured
2015 - Umpqua Community College - semi-automatic pistols - 10 dead & 8 injured

Therefore, data shows that there are less murders per incident when a shooter is using semi-automatic pistols without high capacity magazines (less than 10 rounds). When the shooter is using semi-automatic riles or pistols with high capacity magazines the number of victims increases dramatically.
