I am fortunate enough to live in the area of the Quad Cities. Home of Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River, LMT and the Rock Island Arsenal. On KWQC TV6 news tonight they showed the Assault Weapon Ban and then a reporter went to Armalite and spoke to the President of Armalite. He showed everybody the differences on TV between a Post Ban and a Pre Ban Rifle and said the gun is no more lethal with it. Also interviewed some workers. They said they have been running late hours trying to get set up to retro fit all of the rifles. They said they have between 400-500 rifles in the shop awaiting the retro fit. Even showed them heating up and pulling off the muzzle break!!!! How fortunate am I to see this on my local news!!!!
Too bad they are in Illinois and I am in Iowa. Hot Rod Blagovich is trying to run them out of business. I think they already have some property in Iowa in sight if the State of Illinois pushes them too far. Maybe I would get lucky and they would move to my home town!!
