The assault on "assault weapons" continues...

Jay knows what's up...:

[T]he term “military style” is very misleading. All the weapons under the assault weapons ban are semi-automatic guns, not fully automatic weapons which have been illegal to own unless specficially licensed to do so in this country since 1934. In fact, it’s difficult to own a fully automatic weapon in the United States. In order to do so you must:

A. Have a full FBI background check done (Not the regular background check, but a full investigation that can take months)
B. The weapon must be registered
C. A transfer tax of $200 must be paid for each item
D. Must obtain state approval
E. Must obtain local law enforcement approval
F. Weapon must have been produced prior to 1986
G. Must obtain ATF approval

The ban from 1994 was strictly cosmetic legislation. The people who wrote the legislation, went through a book and picked out weapons that looked scary and put them under the ban. Look at the pictures (here).

Seriously. Check out the pictures. Or I'll assault you. With the weapon of your choice even. I can go commie on you with my kalishnikov or Jew on you with my Uzi.

Your choice.
