25. Assault weapons are among the MOST practical firearms
"cop-killer" bullets are a farce. Black talons are actually worse at penetrating bullet resistant vests than comparable ammo.

Assault weapons and automatic rifles are very infrequently used in inner-city crime.

It is already against the law to sell guns "illegally in the streets".
