Quote of the Day

“Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to
2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons
already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our
communities for decades to come.
“Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault
weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the
law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping
their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or
shooting clubs.” – Rep. Eric Swalwell in Ban assault weapons, buy them back,
go after resisters: Ex-prosecutor in Congress [via usatoday.com]
