Remember that last assault weapons ban that we had first how can they ban something that we don't have,, very very few people are allowed to have an assault weapon, you have to get a Federal tax stamp to acquire one and they are regulated very strict . The rest of us just have semi automatic's. Which people have had in this country as long as I can remember. And when I was younger I do not remember any mass shootings, I do not know what is going on with these new generations of people. the semi automatic weapons have been here for many many years with no problems until recent years. Maybe this country needs to start looking at why these people are doing this.
And when they came up with that latest assault weapons ban why did we the people let them take other weapons away even if they were not assault weapons, We pretty much just let them do whatever they wanted to do. And in this recent shooting that just happened that was not committed with an assault weapon but just a semi automatic rifle and a pump shotgun and semi automatic pistol I would be guessing they are going to bring back that so-called assault weapons ban, I think basically they just used that assault weapons name to get the rest of the public on their side so that people think we have those evil guns that are military use to fight a war. What is an assault weapon look for yourself. Assault rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
