18. ...the AWB years, when AR-15 and AK ownership TRIPLED.

You do understand that the AWB increased, rather than decreased, sales of AR-15 type rifles, civilian AK's, and whatnot 1994-2004, yes? That the AWB didn't ban any guns whatsoever, only the names that could be used to market them?

I guess that means that more people owning .223 and 7.62x39mm semiautos, and vastly increased concealed carry licensure, correlated with a sharp decrease in the crime rate. Hmmm....
