In 1989, President George H.W. Bush signed an executive order banning imports of assault weapons.
July 08, 1989|By Matthew Purdy, Inquirer Washington Bureau The Associated press contributed to this article:
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration announced yesterday that it would ban the importation of a wide range of semiautomatic assault rifles because they had no legitimate sporting use.The ban would keep about 700,000 guns awaiting importation from coming into the United States. But it would have no effect on limiting domestically manufactured assault weapons, which account for 75 percent of the approximately three million assault weapons in this country.
Bush's ban had nothing to do with banning guns from the public, just a protective measure for the gun makers in the US.
