47. No, the AWB did...
as the law was not, as you seem to imply, a figment of the NRA's fevered imagination; it was, in fact, written into the U.S. Code.

The NRA would love to take the credit for 1994, but 1994 would have played out similarly without the NRA. There are between four and eight times as many "assault weapon" owners in the USA as there are NRA members, FWIW.

If you choose to believe that the tail is wagging the dog, feel free to do so, but you are quite out of touch on this issue as it plays here (rather than Up There).
