Assault Weapons Ban Of 2015: The Farce Awakens

posted on December 18, 2015

While the return of Crystal Pepsi and Star Wars was welcomed by many, not everything deserves a reboot, as congressional Democrats demonstrated on Wednesday when they brought forth the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015—a reimagining of Bill Clinton’s failed 1990s-era law. Introduced by Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., the measure would ensure no semi-automatic or other military-style guns are manufactured for civilians. Those who purchased such firearms in the past would be permitted to keep them, but would face increased restrictions if they attempted to sell them. 

Supporters are ludicrously claiming that the firearms in question were developed for use in war by the Germans in WWII, and have no hunting or target shooting applications. Fortunately, it appears the current wave of nostalgia will not lift all boats equally—given the well-documented past failure of the measure and lack of support from GOP congressmen, the bill has little hope of making it through Congress.
