So, I can walk into any gun shop and buy an automatic weapon, huh? This is freedom? My 2nd amendment right to bear arms? One doesn't need an assault rifle to hunt deer, or turkey! Or to defend oneself ...
There was a ban on manufacturing these guns extant from '96 to '06, when it ended. The NRA/Gun Lobby has been able to block its reinstatement since.
I encourage everyone reading this to contact your representatives/senators and demand that assault weapons be banned from manufacture permanently. Thanks for listening!
