The Ban for assault weopons ends tonight at midnight .. There are nineteen guns in the category. They will officially be legal. Congress is doing to nothing to stop this either ..

More info can be found here: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,132184,00.html

This is sad .. Very sad .. I agree with the right to bare arms, but to be lagally owning a ak47 is not good ..

yeah it is shameful that they ban assault weapons since they are used in less that 1% of crimes. Yet I can still by a hand gun and I have to wait 10 days (only 5 days if I have already registered a weapons before) Pffft.... priorities.

If you investigate, you'll see the ban didn't do much as far as lower crime, and all the gun manufacturers had to do was a little cosmetic tweaking and the guns were good to go. Does it really matter if you have one 30 rd magazine or 3 10 rd ones? You're going to do the same amount of damage. I don't see military style rifles as demons. If you're going to blow someones head off, you'll do it with whatever is handy, an AK, a .303, or your trusty pump 12 guage(my defensive weapon of choice). Legally owning an AK is ok, it usually means you're a law-abiding citizen. Criminals don't usually go down to the local gun shop and register their weapons, and they'll get them regardless.

There's always one that will say something like that.Doesn't matter where you live,guns are everywhere.
Everyday over here you hear on the news about someone being shot and injured or killed.

Well, at least he said "no offence" !
I wasnt offended... just not surprised. Seems that when someone is in dissagreement with something in the USA it becomes a question of being an American and not just about whatever is mentioned. As if being an American is defined by the ability to own an assult weapon.

Lucky sods, not allowed any form of automatic weapon here in England :(
Was nice living in SA, and having a dad in the army...
Well you obviously have never been to Stamford Hill, Hackney, Homerton, Brixton, Peckham, Deptford or New cross then, they are standard issue amongst the criminals there.

Be careful out there people it's an evil World!

I didn't think of it the way you guys put it. I guess in the case of thinking that way. It won't be that bad. I am curious to see how the NRA feels about it ..
