Another Anti-Gun Quote
Really? Hmm, that's amazing since that ban never banned the kind of hardware authorities are taking. A .30 caliber machine gun is controlled by laws that have existed since 1934, 1968, and 1986 respectively. The only thing the Clinton law banned was cosmetic features on "assault rifles." For example, take a civilian model AR-15 in your hands. This is the type that can not fire fully automatic without illegal modification. If you take away the flash suppressor, bayonet lug, collapsible buttstock, pistol grip, and high capacity magazine, then what do you have? You still have a semi-automatic rifle that can fire one round with one depression of the trigger. The internal workings of the weapon did not change hence the useless nature of this law. The Clinton Gun Ban did not ban anything other than a small handful of weapons including Street Sweepers and other guns that make great stories on networks because they look scary.
Why do I even care what a foreign dignitary has to say about domestic laws? Well, from the pictures I have posted we are talking about serious military hardware that a smuggler would never find at a small US gun shop. This stuff must be coming from other sources outside the normal channels. And if they are coming from legitimate sources, where is the evidence to prove that the serial numbers are tracked via BATFE data traces and therefore being sold to smugglers via normal sales? The point is that the blame comes to the US and its legal gun owners like usual. We're just as evil and vile as cigarette smokers. Cripes, a gun doesn't kill unless someone pulls the trigger. If you want to stop gun violence then enforce the laws we have and throw these people away until they're too old and frail to operate a weapon!
