    Your claim that the previous ban wasn't long enough to significantly reduce the number of these guns out there is therefore unsound.

    And yet, AR-15s, and similar weapons, were sold as fast as they could be built. I, myself, legally, bought three.

    How is that?

    The gun manufacturers changed their designs to make them legal.

    If you bought a Colt AR-15 during the ban, you bought it illegally.

    start on page 31

    you provided a definition and we all agreed to use it. When you were boxed in by your own definition you tried to pretend it was a sinking ship and you tried to desert. I can see why you want to distance yourself from it . Your performance was the classic building your own gallows and then stepping into the noose and jumping hard on the trap door so it opened.

    Don't forget: the rifle used in the school shooting was 1994AWB compliant, even with the 30rnd mags.

    AR-15s were manufactured and sold quite legally throughout the entire term of the AWB; they simply didn't have the banned features. You don't know what the law banned and didn't ban; you don't know the criteria for banning, and continually posting a link to WaPo story doesn't change anything.
