Aries, I want you to think long and hard about what you said. You want to ban the least used weapon in firearm crimes so you can stop "some" of the deaths with "some" being the minority of such.
At the same time you said handguns were one of the best firearms for home defense. Handguns are also the most easily concealed and most used firearm in firearm related deaths but you aren't wanting to ban those.
So don't you think your desire to ban "assault" weapons is nothing more than symbolic at best as well as largely ineffective?
