Has the threat of a weapons ban prompted you to purchase an assault rifle, magazine, and ammunition?


While there is a threat of a new or reinstated Federal assault weapons ban and a new ban in effect in New York, there has yet to be a definitive answer to the question as to whether or not a ban will be enacted. With that said, 4.7 million guns have been sold in the past couple of months triggering a shortage of inventory in gun stores. Gun manufacturers have ceased production until a decision is made about a ban so they are not stuck with unsellable inventory. Is it possible that the plan was to boost the economy by creating a run on guns and ammo adding of billions dollars to the economy?

    You are right about the benefits. But, just imagine if G.W.Bush had kept the assault weapons ban imposed by President Clinton, maybe it would have saved some or all of the New Town, CT victims.

    Shyron has no clue as to what a "assault weapon" is supposed to be. But she wants them banned anyway. And this is the voice of "common sense."

    not tampering with the second amendment, if they make people have background checks, that would prevent a lot of senseless shootings. Don't have to give up your guns.

    I do not own a gun, but I believe those that desire one, and go through the legal system, should have them.
