98% no. Must be very fresh poll.

According to a Justice Department study, the original ban reduced gun deaths by 6.7 percent, and the absence of the ban has resulted in assault weapons being used in 385 deaths.

I'd like to know where she found this study, since none of us have been able to.

Seems like her own contortion of gun deaths dropping by that percentage between 1994 and 2004 (ignoring that they were also dropping before and after the ban).

As for the "385 deaths" attributed to "assault weapons", where is this data? CDC doesn't differentiate between type of weapon, and FBI UCR only gives handgun, shotgun, rifle and other/unknown. They have no "assault weapon" catgory.
