4. It amounts to nothing more than regulating cosmetic features.
And as we saw after 1993, manufacturers simply modified the looks and designs of these weapons to comply with the law, although they were still just as deadly.

Truly one of the stupidest and futile gun control measures to date, considering that these categories of weapons account for less than 1% of all gun crime.

And it helped Democrats lose control of Congress in 1994, a real "winner" for sure.
