    Ah, yes. The 1994 Clinton Assault Weapons Ban. The Ban that, contrary to all the blabbering socialist morons lies, banned nothing except those evil cosmetic features and had no or minimal effect on "gun violence." Stupid politicians. Stupid "do something for the children" SJWs. Stupid gun grabbers.

    Ah, yes, the Journal of the American Medical Association.... Semi-auto rifles were banned? Really?

    The only thing that tyrannical law did was have me pay $90 each for normal capacity Glock magazines that we're originally $15 each.

    The price of the pre-ban (assault weapon configured) guns went up, too.
    Weren't AR's with flash hiders and bayonet lugs selling for something like $1500 during the second half of that gun ban?

    I didn't need to go gun shopping, but, like you said, the mag prices were out of sight.

    Cobray/ SWD Zytel mags (black synthetic) for my M11/9 went from $20 to $99. No, I didn't buy any at that price. After 2004, they came back down to $30-ish.

    Around 2001 or so, a 50-round drum magazine of mine broke. It was hardly used. It had a "lifetime warranty" by the manufacturer. But they were not allowed by law to replace it with the same kind, and they were not willing or able to actually fix the one I sent them.
    So they sent me FIVE of their 10-round magazines instead. Not really the same... I wasn't too happy about that, but the law's the law.

    The problem with "research" articles like that are that somebody didn't do enough research but regardless it must be true because well, it's the JAMA! Tons of brand new semi-automatic guns of various types weren't banned. Pre-1994 "evil black rifles" were grandfathered in. Post 1994 evil black rifles were still produced sans the evil features. Price not withstanding, evil black rifles of all types were legally bought and sold during that period. The article's introduction is very misleading and an outright lie.

    For the most part, yes. But it heavily depended on who you bought from. In 2000 I bought a Colt R6551 Sporter Target for $900 on consignment. In 2001 I bought a Colt R6500 Sporter II for $1,400 from an individual.
