Who Needs an AR-15?
We don’t happen to believe that the Second Amendment protects citizen’s right to own what are essentially military weapons.
On the other hand, the 1994-2004 assault weapons ban was a failure, providing no reduction in gun crime.
As with so many of the things that elitist liberals favor, the desire to ban assault weapons is driven by cultural bias rather than hard-nosed policy analysis. Gun people are, to the liberals, “the other,” who don’t sufficiently obey their “betters,” and need to be put in their place.
