A thought about an assault weapons ban [View all]

I heard this on Mark Thompson's radio show "Make It Plain" on Sirius radio yesterday.
The idea was that a law banning assault weapons will not ban all assault weapons but it will start a dialog or a conversation about the weapons that could have more effect than the law.
For example can you see a relative showing off their Bushmaster AR 15 and someone asks "isn't that the type of gun used in those mass killings?"
Just something I heard that seemed relevant.
