Um, I think the ban was on all semi-automatics, not just the "powerful" ones... This, in the very city which houses and hosts our Federal government, which is charged with carrying out, protecting and preserving the integrity of our Constitution.Just in the past year, the gun-rights group sought to scuttle basic gun controls enacted by the District of Columbia, including a ban on powerful semiautomatic weapons in the nationâ€™s capital.
Huh? ... Also, the FBI needs a list to remember the name "Osama Bin Laden"?The group also blocked common-sense efforts in Congress to bar people on the F.B.I.â€™s terrorist watch list from buying guns and explosives.
What is this person talking about? There is no such "loophole".It kept open the deadly loophole in federal law that lets gun traffickers and other unqualified buyers to obtain weapons without background checks at gun shows.
