I agree with the idea that a gun is something used by a person like a tool. But in texas guns are more used for sport and hunting and for basically what guns were meant to do. But in urban areas like LA and New york city, if a guy can get access to an ak 47, they're not going to use it for hunting. Gang fights have escalated to little wars because of the weapons being used. And cities across the country like miami, chicago, new orleans, and others have this problem. The idea of the ban is on assault weapons used in war. Uzis and m 16's have no place in hunting since you would destroy your target, so hunters wouldn't use them anyway. The idea is to reduce the number of assault weapons in the hands of more violent individuals in areas where bystanders would get fatally hurt. If the ban is only on assauly weapons, then what's the problem. The right to bear arms is something of a responsibility, and if you can bear any other type of arms except assault weapons, how is that infringing on your constituitional right. If you took the amendment literally, then technicly people could have nuclear weapons and other wmds, but no one would say that's not going to far, except charleton heston.

I agree with it, and because of it, I know own an AR-15 M4 Model with removable handle, colapsable buttscok, bayonet lug..... rail system....

And I am currently in the process of switching my 9mm magazines from 10 round to 13 round. They are $30.00 each, so it's a slow process.

The Original Ban was a another bit of feel good, knee jerk, legislation passed into law by the liberal democrats to fix a perceived problem. And had no real impact on street crime.

Look at the some of the specs

Pistol grip

more than ten round detachable magazines

Flash suppressors.


And my favo-rite bayonet lug.

Now tell me when was the last documented bayonet charge by the Crips against the Bloods?

Another thing, it has been recorded that there was a 2% Increase in murder rates.

The 2% increase doesn't prove anything unless the murders committed with assault weapons increased 2%.

I don't agree that assault weapons (full auto) should ever be legal to the general populace. All the other mentioned weapons are ok. Mini 14 is my favorite.
