    the term assault weapon is misleading and the politicians and media use it to scare the public into thinking people own assault weapons.

    they are only talking about banning weapons that have a military look rather than real military weapons.

    Obama is secretly negotiating with the NRA to allow those that register their AR semi autos to modify them to full auto. If the "AWB" passes through Congress it will open a huge can of worms as it will eliminate the ban on Full auto machine guns.
