Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.

"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 reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder told reporters.

"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller," Holder said, referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Washington, D.C. v. Heller, which asserted the Second Amendment as an individual's right to own a weapon.


Sometime , somewhere, someday, the Congress will pass an AWB... and OB will sign it. It's just as simple as that. I've heard all the arguments about how he has too much on his plate to bother with an AWB, how the Congress won't pass anything that would hurt their chances of re election, yada, yada, yada. I remain unconvinced :scrutiny:
