Myriad studies concluded that the gum ban from 1994 to 2004 had little o no effect on gun violence in the US during the period in question. Yet, biden wants to re-enact it.
How many "assault weapons" are currently in private hands in the US? No one knows, and estimates vary widely. The most prolific platform, the AR-series rifle is probably the most produced rifle in the US over the past four decades. Among gun owners, it is ubiquitous. And now one knows with any accuracy, how many are out there.
By any rational measure, a ban on "assault weapons: would be ineffective, unenforceable, unconstitutional, and wold further erode trust on our government, yet that is what the Democrats want. It is madness writ large.
