Why didn't you start a revolution when the first assualt weapons ban took place a couple decades ago?
The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), or Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, was a subtitle of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law in the United States that included a prohibition on the manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms, so called "assault weapons".
Or for all the current assault weapon bans that have been going on in multiple states for years now?
In addition to New York (see above), Massachusetts and New Jersey have enacted similar bans. Cook County of Illinois has enacted a similar, but more restrictive ban. California enacted one of the first bans on semi-automatic rifles in 1989, adding stricter measures to the law several times since. Connecticut has enacted a partial ban that focuses on assault weapons with certain characteristics. Hawaii and Maryland have assault pistol bans pertaining to assault weapon characteristics only and pistols.
Or the patriot act?
Or the NDAA?
Yeah.....that's what I thought.
Guess the only amendment you all care about is the 2nd one. Kind of sad really..
