Okay, let's assume for argument sake the AWB is put in place...now what? What's it mean? Obviously, people would be unable to purchase "assault weapons." But, what if someone already has an "assault weapon" that falls under the ban, what's the impact? Curious minds want to know....

In the last one you could own a pre ban model and buy and sell them. New legislation will almost certainly ban transfers and new purchases.

"My first priority will be to reinstate the assault weapons ban as soon as I take office. Within 90 days, we will go back after kitchen table dealers, and work to end the gun show and internet sales loopholes. In the first year, I intend to work with Congress on a national no carry law, 1 gun a month purchase limits, and bans on all semi-automatic guns."

Not all dems are anti-gun. Any idea how many votes there would be (especially in the Senate)?

Start calling and writing your Senators and Representatives, including the Dems. Let them know what you think and that you vote.

Personally, I'll also be joining the NRA now.

Because you might have more ammo at your disposal and get a second shot off faster than underprivileged criminals. ;)

Actually I believe their thinking is this: Since criminals obtain weapons by stealing them, they somehow have convinced themselves that by removing them from the general population, this will prevent criminals from obtaining weapons that have the same capabilities as the police.

Nevermind my right to defend myself on an equal footing with criminals.

Just make sure you only throw one at a time and never have more than 3 in your pocket!
