Yes, sometimes they make stupid comments, but does that mean they don't understand the general situation? No. Some one has told them that xyz is too dangerous for whatever reason. When they are asked about that reason, they don't know, and comments like the ones you proposed are made.

Do we need to understand terminology regarding a Bazooka to understand they are too dangerous to be floating around the public?
No, of course not.

You aren't providing any arguments, because there are none. You are merely dismissing others arguments, because it conflicts with your own and you feel they don't have enough hands on knowledge. Neither of which are good reasons to dismiss an argument.

If your opinion of who is suitable to handle gun legislation was enacted, then the only body capable of handling it would be the NRA.

The fact of the matter is that are three legitimate uses for guns.
#1 Self Defense
#2 Fun
#3 Hunting

All three of these can be accomplished with basic shotguns, rifles, and handguns.
Everything else is unnecessary, and too dangerous to be in open circulation.

The fact that it is unnecessary and dangerous is more than enough merit in itself to ban it.

But that really is the point: please define "basic shotguns, rifles, and handguns". Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
