Re: Obama plan: Ban assault weapons
banning assault rifles or guns isn't going to do shit to drop the crime rate. Here in the UK for example the gun crime is quite high (not as high as the US but still) and guns here are banned. Its a cultural issue rather than a gun issue. In Sweden for example whilst you require a license to bare arms, all firearms are essentially legal. Yet Sweden has one of the lowest gun crime rates in the entire world.
Not to mention that people who want to have guns will get them at any cost anyway through the black market which is a lot more dangerous than buying a gun at a legal weapons store. Especially in a country like the US where the right to bare arms has been such a huge part of the country's history.
