I am writing a paper for my intro to criminal justice class and am mostly looking for input from dealers. I would like to know how the AWB affetced them both pre- & post. My instructor is an anti so I would like to have real world people's info in this paper.

For the gun violence section I will be using violent crime stats from before, during, and the little time after the AWB.

I am not asking for help in my research but, if any of you have any good links or material that you have come across I would appreciate seeing it. I will doing a power point presentation on this at the end of class so I want this to be good. Thanks for the help all.

If you want to read about the gun market influence from the ban, tell of all the small businesses going out when the ban came into effect.

I bet you, if you looked at the unemployment in firearm/accessory making towns/cities, that unemployment took about a 1-2% increase during November or December.

...Just look at sales during the first fiscal quarter of 1995. Things picked up after that, but the market was hit hard during 1995. Lay offs, Chapter 9 in a few smaller companies, ect.

I hadn't even considered the employment/unemloyment factor. That might be a good section to add to the paper.
