True to his word, President Barack Obama will now be coming to pry the guns from your cold dead hands.
Well, the assault weapons at least…
"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," [Eric] Holder told reporters.
The Assault Weapons Ban signed into law by President Clinton in 1994 banned 19 types of semi-automatic military-style guns and ammunition clips with more than 10 rounds.
"A semi-automatic is a quintessential self-defense firearm owned by American citizens in this country," [NRA president Wayne LaPierre] said. "I think it is clearly covered under [District of Columbia v. Heller] and it's clearly, I think, protected by the Constitution."
Man, it's gonna be tough walking around without my AK-47. And you know how it is. Every time you accidentally leave the house without it, you always run into somebody who needs shooting. It never fails.
