LA Officials Ask for Federal Ban on Assault Weapons
NBC Los Angeles ^ | Mar 27, 2009 | NBC Los Angeles

A week after four Oakland police officers were gunned down by a parolee with a semiautomatic weapon, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City Councilman Jack Weiss on Friday called for the federal government to reinstate a ban on assault weapons.

Before heading to the Bay Area this morning for the funerals of Oakland police Sgt. Mark Dunakin, Sgt. Ervin Romans, Sgt. Daniel Sakai and Officer John Hege, the mayor and councilman called for the renewal of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, which prevented the sale of most semiautomatic weapons.

"This morning we are calling on Congress and the Obama administration to make gun control a top priority now and to reauthorize the assault weapons ban right away," Villaraigosa said. "Whether it's a police officer at a routine traffic stop or a teenager walking home from school, handguns, automatic rifles and AK-47s are a threat to the safety of every American."

It is estimated that one in five law enforcement officers slain in the line of duty is killed with an assault weapon.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder indicated last month that the Obama Administration will pursue renewal of the ban.

"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to re-institute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder said in February.

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban was passed by Congress in 1994 and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The law placed a 10-year ban on the sale of certain semiautomatic weapons, including military style semiautomatic rifles to civilians, but the ban was allowed to expire when George Bush became president.

There have been reports that people have been stocking up on guns because of rumors the Obama administration will crack down on gun ownership.

Doesn't California already have an Assault Weapons Ban?

So, if there state law doesn't work, why do they assume a federal ban will?
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 10:08:58 AM EST
At that point did people like this get disconnected from reality? THERE IS ALREADY AN AW BAN THERE!!!!! How does banning them in the rest of the other states help them????????????????????????? WTF???????????????????????????????

but lord, please answer me this: why the fuck have you allowed idiots to populate this planet? i realize that the human race would probably go into extinction in short order if people with an i.q. of 100 or less were suddenly removed from existence because i understand that morons are needed for the piss ant jobs that intelligent people are smart enough to avoid, but come on now........

fucking retarded.

"estimated 1 in 5 are killed with assault weapons"

WTF?

NO they did not state "assault FIREARMS"....they stated weapons "weapons".......

if these fucking liberals can keep their "freedom of the press", then fuck you if i'm going to give up my RIGHT to bear arms......

Good news California, the country has had a ban on "assault weapons" since 1934.

But you stay classy..

Link Posted: 3/27/2009 10:17:32 AM EST
Amazing.

Lovelle Mixon was a multi-time loser,
fresh out of prison (early release) on an assault with a firearms charge, tied to an unsolved rape case via DNA, had a warrant out for parole violations at the time of the step etc, etc.

Somehow I doubt he bought his firearm at Cabelas.

Maybe, just maybe if California got it's shit together and either kept violent criminals incarcerated or utilized the death penalty, started enforcing immigration law, started enforcing drug laws, started acting like an actual functional fucking state they wouldn't have these problems.

But no. They want to fuck with ME, the law abiding citizen.

Ignorant, arrogant, self-righteous political shitbags.

Is it possible to force another state to secede from the Union?

Is ANYONE stupid enough to think that someone who anally raped a 12 year old would obey an assault weapon law? Enforce existing law before you make more. Felon in possession is plea bargained away 80% of the time in Oakland.

See now, that's one of those, "depends on what your definition of "is" is" type stats.
I'm sure that for the purposes of that study anything that goes bang "is" an assualt weapon.

He only did it because he was frustrated by being unable to find meaningful employment. His mom told us so.

According to the FBI about 8% of officers are killed with their own weapons, I guess those would count as being killed with assault weapons.

Here's a link to the article. I suggest that you focus on how Mayor Villaraigosa is misinformed on the issue. We're not all fuck nuggets out here.
