First of all, by banning assault weapons, they will make it like this-the good guys won't have assault weapons, but the bad guys will. After all, the
bad guys are aready got nothing to lose, what more will they lose for getting an assault rifle? Assault rifles are very very easy to get ILLEGALLY, I
have been offered an AK-47 at least 10 times, and I could get one easily if I wanted to, or many other assault rifles. So basically for criminals,
this law won't really mean anything.
Now for law abiding people like me, it will mean many bad things. First, some people (like me) like to collect weapons. Well we won't be able to
collect ARs. Second, assault rifles are fun and great to shoot, and great for preparing for the military with. And finally, not all law abiding people
are great shots, hell some don't even have it in them to shoot, how the hell are they gonna defend themselves against an enemy who might have an
assault rifle. Pistols are semi automatic, but some people cannot pull the trigger that fast, and also, pistols are less accurate and have a shorter
range then assault rifles, and if the enemy has a bulletproof vest, then the pistol won't do anything at all.
Now, this may seem extreme, but just by me saying that I was OFFERED an AK-47 10 times within 8 months should say something about how armed the
criminals must be around here.
Now, a person like me doesn't need an assault rifle for SELF DEFENSE, as I can do well with a pistol or rifle, but lets remember not all people are
like me,so what are they supposed to do?
Criminals will have them anyway, why not the law abiding people? Most current gun owners are responsible and will use an assault rifle responsibly.
