Typical media quote :
With only five days before the ban expires, Democrats, some Republicans and law enforcement officials have ramped up efforts to extend the 10-year-old ban on 19 assault-style semi-automatic weapons.
Let's take a look at those 19, shall we.......
"(30) The term 'semiautomatic assault weapon' means--
"(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms,
"(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat
Kalashnikovs (all models); Chineese imports banned, banned also under 89 import ban
"(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil; banned in 89
"(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70); banned in 89
"(iv) Colt AR-15; Colt no longer makes the "AR15"
"(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC; banned in 89
"(vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12; we get scary threaded barrels back on crappy jamomatic guns
"(vii) Steyr AUG; AUG is a machinegun banned from import in 68 the semi auto version is called something else
"(viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; not in business and
"(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar to) the
Street Sweeper and Striker 12; controlled under NFA 34 now
Just some more info showing the stupidity within the soundbites
