The problem is most people don't know the difference between an assault rifle and a semi-auto rifle.  It is already extremely difficult to get an assault rifle legally and few people have them and out of the few that do got assault rifles the vast majority of them are collectors so talking about banning assault rifles is rather pointless.

From wiki  full link http://en.wikipedia....ult_Weapons_Ban


In the former U.S. law, the legal term assault weapon included certain specific semi-automatic firearm models by name (e.g., Colt AR-15, TEC-9, non select-fire AK-47s produced by three manufacturers, and Uzis) and other semi-automatic firearms because they possess a minimum set of features from the following list of features:

Semi-automatic rifles able to accept detachable magazines and two or more of the following: Semi-automatic pistols with detachable magazines and two or more of the following:
  • Magazine that attaches outside the pistol grip
  • Threaded barrel to attach barrel extender, flash suppressor, handgrip, or suppressor
  • Barrel shroud that can be used as a hand-hold
  • Unloaded weight of 50 oz (1.4 kg) or more
  • A semi-automatic version of a fully automatic firearm.
Semi-automatic shotguns with two or more of the following:
  • Folding or telescoping stock
  • Pistol grip
  • Fixed capacity of more than 5 rounds
  • Detachable magazine.

Obama isn't interested in taking our guns away.

If you advocate us being able to have 'assault rifles', then why not M-1 Tanks, or SAM Turrets?

I think the things he is saying are reasonable and steer far away from any sort of infringement on our 2nd Amendment.  I'm a proponent of the Amendment, just to be clear.

Essentially, the assualt rifle ban didn't ban guns, just scary looking ones. Any which way, the second amendment is clear. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Note the right of the PEOPLE. No where does it say "the people can only have not scary looking guns". By rights of this we should be able to own tanks, machine guns, fighter jets. Anything the government could own.

Here is another article!!

http://www.infowars....ma-re-election/

Obama also indicated that he would attempt to eviscerate the right to keep and bear arms during a White House meeting with gun control advocate Sarah Brady last year. During the meeting, Obama told Brady he was working “under the radar” on new gun control policy. Brady added that Obama assured her gun control was “very much on his agenda.”

Forgive the possibly daftness of the next bit, but I have a question regarding the Second Amendment.



I dimly remember reading something that stated that, if you are indeed part of a militia unit, you are only permitted to hold one weapon, and a set number of ammunition supplies.  Is this true?




And in following, why is it this scare story is made every time there's an election in the US? I recall hearing it when Clinton won, and also when W. Bush came into office.
