In a thread a few days ago, someone had mentioned he had downloaded the Government's report that had been done late in the Clinton administration, on the ineffectiveness of the AWB, and how interestingly enough, it's no longer appearing on any of the Gubment sites.

If any of you have it, I'd be grateful if you contact me.

Thanks!

As were so many things of the Clinton era "facts", it was probably the figment of somebodies fertile imagination. :fire:

The only report I know of is -
Department of The Treasury Study on the Sporting Suitability of Modified Semiautomatic Assault Rifles - April 1998 (http://www.atf.treas.gov/firearms/assault/pdf/complete.pdf)

Of course, it states exactly what Klinton Inc. wanted it to say. It does contain my most favorite reason why folding/collapsible stocks are really, really bad.

Folding/telescoping stock. Many military firearms incorporate folding or telescoping stocks. The main advantage of this item is portability, especially for airborne troops. These stocks allow the firearm to be fired from the folded position, yet it cannot be fired nearly as accurately as with an open stock. With respect to possible sporting uses of this feature, the folding stock makes it easier to carry the firearm when hiking or backpacking. However, its predominant advantage is for military purposes, and it is normally not found on the traditional sporting rifle.

Now THAT is an interesting report! On one hand, the so-called assault weapons were never a factor in crime, before or after the ban, yet, they are the most dangerous weapon on the planet when actually used in a crime.
