32. Hit that one out of the ballpark

I like to point out to people who call for a renewal of the 1994 AWB that, while working my way through college, I worked for a year at a major sporting goods store in the gun department around 1999-2000.

I sold dozens of semi-automatic rifles, including AR-15's, during the AWB in the time I was there. All of these were factory-new, all perfectly legal, all capable of accepting pre-ban high-capacity magazines. In fact, we handed out fliers with the names of websites and upcoming gun shows where you could buy them if they asked!

Like you said, the manufacturers just took off the bayonet lugs and folding stocks and remarketed them as "target" or "varmint" rifles. Viola, perfectly legal, and they made huge profits off of it.
