Anybody with the reading skills of a five-year old and a modicum of self-honesty now understands that the Assault Weapons Ban (better termed the "Scary-Looking Guns" ban) of 1994 was a complete flop. It had zero effect on crime, affected guns that were hardly ever used in crimes, and attempted to come up with a list of largely cosmetic features by which a gun would be determined to be an "Assault Weapon". Gun manufacturers simply deleted these features, changed the names of their guns, and continued production.
I just can't understand why congress is wasting their time on this again. It was a worthless POS the first time and is looking worse the next go around.
This law is being written so as to include almost any gun that looks or sounds somewhat scary.
You morons in congress want to do something?? Try coming up with some crime bills because there ain't a gun law in existence that's worth the paper it's written since the first one appeared in the Bill of Rights.
