Unless it's fully automatic or even selective they can't ban them, read the Constitution. Who's the numbnuts that started this thread????

It has happend before:

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB)or (Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act) was a subtitle of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law in the United States that included a prohibition on the manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms, so called "assault weapons". The 10-year ban was passed by Congress on September 13, 1994, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton the same day. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban's enactment. The Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired on September 13, 2004, as part of the law's sunset provision. There have been multiple attempts to renew the ban, but no bill has reached the floor for a vote.

Under the current law of the United States, assault weapons and high-capacity gun magazines are perfectly legal. Barack Obama has no more power to change that without the House and Senate going along with him than he does to give work permits to illegal aliens or, for that matter, than Mitt Romney would have to ban abortion or union participation in elections via executive order.

Going outside the rule of law to give the President dictatorial powers he clearly doesn’t possess under the Constitution is extremely dangerous to the health of our republic. Even liberals should know better.

And here's something else to think about when it comes to guns, does anybody know why the United States has NEVER been successfully occupied? Because every other house hold has a weapon and they know how to use it.

Ya Dam right.....It was and has been considered by many of our enemies but the Japanese said it best “that it would be suicide or as Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said. You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." Makes one wonder why so many are for gun control considering that our second amendment was a great deterrent to the USA being invaded during WWII.

I agree with you IZKUA...Democrats want to blame everything on the guns...You can't blame the guns for killing people that's like blaming a pencil for misspelled words!
