6. The original assault weapon ban ( which Bill Clinton blames for the loss of the 94 mid terms)

 

was written with a sunset clause. Unless renewed it would automatically expire in 2004. GW Bush stated that had congress put a bill on his desk to make the 94 AWB permanent he would have signed it.

However since the ban could not be shown to have any appreciable effect on crime it was allowed ot lapse.

They AWB is also credited with transforming the NRA from an irrelevant target shooting /safety organization into the political Juggernaut it is now.

You want a republican house, senate and white house for the rest of your life?

Go fuck with a new AWB
