In 1994, the U.S. Congress coined a new term – “Assault Weapon”. Here is everything you need to know about that term and where these firearms stand today.
They are said to be evil, menacing, and intimidating. They only belong in the hands of the military because of their lethal appearance. Piers Morgan says they need to be outlawed. Rob Lowe said he can’t think of a reason why he would want to own one. The president claims that too many Americans cling to guns and religion and wants to introduce another AWB (assault weapon ban) more sweeping than the last one that expired in 2004 with the civilian AR15 being a prime target. Yet the AR15 continues to be the most popular rifle in the United States among gun owners who never commit crimes. Someone who remains nameless has done some good research and has assembled a collection of telling facts in a very concise slideshow that only takes a few moments to browse to learn the Truth About Assault Weapons.
What would be accomplished by banning “black rifles” and magazines with a capacity that exceeds arbitrary amount determined by lawmakers? This slideshow explains it with solid statistics. Are these rabid killing machines that are the cause of so much violence in our society? Would eliminating them alone be an effective way to provide optimum civil safety? Do civilians have a valid reason for owning these weapons? If you have an interest in gun control no matter your point of view, you owe it to yourself to look at this.
