Feinstein introduced an upgraded assault weapons ban. The proposal outlaws assault weapons and ammo mags that hold more than ten rounds. She hopes this proposal will “dry up the supply of these weapons over time.” However the proposal has met extreme resistance from the NRA. The NRA claimed “trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades.” The organization is confident that Congress will shoot down the proposal.
This debate has been long coming. Most of America is split on the issue. Many feel they have a right to whatever weapons they want as is promised by the right to bear arms. However there are those who would more than willingly sacrifice this right for safer schools and communities. However should assault weapons be outlawed what is to stop the black market from getting them and giving them to the sickos who perform many of the unfortunate events that have made this such a heated debate ? What is to stop weapons smuggling from becoming the next bootlegging.
