Way to go on the election? This was introduced long before the election and it is only in committee.
Notice how it is called the Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008. It is essentially reauthorizing the Brady Bill that expired a few years back.
If you read the wording on it, it says that you can have all those semi-auto rifles but you just have to have owned them on the day if/when it goes into effect.
While I disagree with it in its entirety, the only thing the Brady Bill did the first time around was make people a lot of money by reselling their hi-cap clips and semi-autos for three to four times the retail value because people were wanting to own them for the simple fact they thought they couldn’t in the future.[/quote]
This would be a great marketing tool, outlaw this shit every few years so people over pay to stock up.
Does anyone know exactly which guns will be banned? I’ve wanted an M-14 for a while, but can’t afford one. I figure if the rifle will still be legal, I’ll just stock up on a few 20-round magazines.
