Justice Department report concludes assault weapons ban will have no effect
"Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun
homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban
is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence," the DOJ's National
Institute for Justice explains in a January 4 report obtained by the National Rifle Association. "If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be
effective." That idea is also undermined by the acknowledgement that "a
complete elimination of assault weapons would not have a large impact
on gun homicides."
The reporting was released on January 4th, which means Obama knew what was in it and went ahead with his gun control push anyway.
