Default Assault Weapon Ban Expiring

'Gun makers marketing assault weapons
Companies get a jump with federal ban set to run out The Associated Press
Updated: 7:05 p.m. ET Sept. 7, 2004

WASHINGTON - With the federal ban on assault weapons set to expire next Monday, gun manufacturers are marketing military-style firearms and are ready to sell them as soon as Sept. 14, a consumer group said Tuesday.

“The gun industry is champing at the bit for the ban to expire,” said Susan Peschin, firearms project director at the Consumer Federation of America, a nonprofit association of 300 consumer groups, which released the study.

The consumer group interviewed gun industry experts and marketing representatives and surveyed manufacturers’ catalogs and Web sites.

For example, ArmaLite Inc., a gun manufacturer in Geneseo, Ill., is advertising a “Post-PostBan Rifle Program,” offering consumers attachments to convert their firearms to their pre-ban configurations, with shipping available Sept. 14. The company is offering a non-refundable prepayment option to those who wish to get a jump-start.

“The program offers customers a way to avoid the risk of delay, yet also have the benefits of a change in law,” the company says on its Web site.'

What do you think of the impending legal return of 'military-style weaponry'?

i think the return is bull shit. you don't use AR15's or AK47's to hunt deer or bears. in the 1997 shootout in California the AK47 and AR15's they were using were legally purchased and altered into fully automatics. legalizing these guns will make accesibility to assault rifles for gangs much easier.

you also don't need one to protect your home i know that argument is going to come up

it was also on television how one clip of 30 rounds in an AR15 can be shot in 5 minutes on semi automatic, a FULL CLIP

i'm not going to change any gun lover's mind anyways...

while I am all for the use of firearms, the use of assault weapons should remain illegal.....it is not the 'good ol' boys that use them......the end of this ban doesn't make sense to me.....although, it's kind of moot, because those that have assault weapons would have them whether they are legal or not.....

Assault weapons serve no good purpose outside of specialized law enforcement and the military. Unfortunately, renewing the ban won't keep those weapons out of the hands of sadistic criminals. There's an awfully lucrative black market for American Military Hardware.

Late.
