That is my site by the way. I created it for the exact reasons Persephone mentioned... I got tired of trying to explain it in online debates so I just made a webpage so I could do a quick link to an explanation.

You may want to change the first page then.
It's technically incorrect.
The law wasn't repealed, it expired without renewal.

Minor difference, I know.

Great site! I appreciate your time and effort in creating this informative site. There will be many people around the country today researching the AWB. Many will come across AR15.com while looking for answers, and I hope they will see your site and get informed on the facts. There is so much disinformation being broadcasted the last several days, I'm sure people are forming opinions based on these lies. They need to know the truth, thanks again Mr. Roberts.

Thanks to everyone here who educated a friend or acquaintance, wrote letters to their newspapers, Senators and Congressmen, did Flash presentations to explain it, listened to CSPAN for hours on end, etc. etc.

I was around for the first ban, so I knew what the media would be doing this time around. I'm glad that the site helped educate some - I even got contacted by several reporters writing stories on the ban so hopefully it helped to mitigate some of the misinformation being put out by Feinstein and friends.

However, it is still just one site out of hundreds that helped inform and educate on the subject. By itself, it may not have done a lot; but the combined effort was enough to override the major media and face down three separate attempts to renew the ban this year.

It was definitely a team effort
