The NRA ILA's website on the topic. You should probably reference the 3rd party sources like the CDC and DOJ used on the site (don't reference the NRA at all) for unbiased statistics.
The pop-up quiz on the site delivers some good sound-bite-type factoids on the worthless law.

Impacts of the 1994 Assault
Weapons Ban: 1994â96
by Jeffrey A. Roth and Christopher S. Koper
The legislation required the Attorney
General to deliver to Congress within
30 months an evaluation of the effects of
the ban. To meet this requirement, the
National Institute of Justice (NIJ) funded
research from October 1995 to December
1996 to evaluate the impact of Subtitle A.
This Research in Brief summarizes the
results of that evaluation.
