God Bless Our Troops!!!
Should President Obama push to permanently reinstate a ban on assault weapons?Congress imposed a ban on what it called assault weapons in 1994, outlawing the sale and importation of 19 military-style weapons, copycat models with similar features, and high-capacity ammunition magazines. In a compromise with Republicans, the Democrats who controlled Congress agreed to let it expire in ten years unless it was renewed. By 2004, with Republicans in charge, support had evaporated.

HERE IS THE POLL!!!!!

Yes. We had the ban for 10 years. He should use up whatever political capital is necessary to reinstate the ban. 12,467 votes

No. It was a mistake the first time around and it would be a mistake again. Existing gun laws are enough.

Maybe. Owning a gun is a right, but I'm conflicted as to whether or not average Americans should be able to own assault weapons.
