Let's be clear: when Congress passes an "assault weapons" ban (and they will pass a ban), it'll be pretty much toothless.
That the law will likely leave most things unchanged doesn't matter the government simply has to do something.
Much like Clinton's ban in 1994, this new legislation will be rife with loopholes.
To effectively ban weapons in the U.S., a country with 90 guns for every 100 people, the government would have to outlaw all semiautomatic weapons.
That's not all though.
It would then have to double, if not triple, the staff at Alcohol Tobacco Firearms, and sweep through the nation conducting mandatory buybacks, using the FBI's gun registry as a roadmap. That's right, no grandfathered weapons allowed either (unlike Rep. Diane Feinstein's new bill, which allows grandfathered weapons).
To call the strategy costly would be an understatement even in terms of human cost how long before the ATF is in an intense shootout with some Midwestern militia?

Anything to build up government, and Dem voting block.
The rest of the article is good too.
These lefists are really in a state of delusion
How can this clymer claim to support the Second Amendment when he's second guessing ownership of certain guns?
He's a lying POS gun grabber who can't keep his story straight.
"It's easy to blame guns. Even I, a proud Second Amendment supporting Iraq War veteran, am second-guessing the necessity for ownership of AR-series rifles (even glocks and deadly pistols)."
Business Insider is the “Tiger Beat” of Business Journalism.
I can’t take anything the “report” as serious journalism or editorial viewpoint.
They address there readers as if they were hungry for high-scholl gossip.
Any substance they have “reported” has been lifted directly from reputable cites.
Only on FreeRepublic have I seen Business Insider linked with incredible frequency. It’s strange. I’d give more credence to Weekly World News than Business Outsider.
