    I need sources for statistics and facts and stories about the AWB...
    I'm writing a paper for school about how the AWB is useless and should go away. I need valid information sources and quotes from books with MLA style citations.

    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.

    Good luck!

    Impacts of the 1994 Assault
    Weapons Ban: 1994â96
    by Jeffrey A. Roth and Christopher S. Koper

    March 1999

    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.

    Can't beat the DoJ's own study.

    Browse around bATFE's website. Gotta be some good poop there.

    Keep us posted.

    there was supposed to be a 2002 update to the DOJ

    but i never heard of its release

    ya don't think the Clintons suppressed it, do ya?

    (a) STUDY- The Attorney General shall investigate and study the
    effect of this subtitle and the amendments made by this subtitle,
    and in particular shall determine their impact, if any, on violent
    and drug trafficking crime. The study shall be conducted over a
    period of 18 months, commencing 12 months after the date of
    enactment of this Act.
    (b) REPORT- Not later than 30 months after the date of enactment
    of this Act, the Attorney General shall prepare and submit to the
    Congress a report setting forth in detail the findings and
    determinations made in the study under subsection (a).

    I don't know if you can use this, but the fact that two of the Reps who voted for the AWB were shortly sent to jail gravels me. I don't enjoy having to live under laws written by felons.

    Who were the two? Any guesses?

    One was Dan Rostenkowski, (D) Chicago, IL.
    The other was a Rep named Reynolds, Mel, I think. Also a Chicago area Dem.

    "Rosty" was busted for misappropriating government property.
    Reynolds was busted for screwing minor females.

    Both were pardoned by Bill (Perjurer In Chief) Clinton. Reynolds was hired (I kid you not) by the Reverend With The Mostest Due To Shakedowns Of Businesses, Jesse Jackson.


    I think I heard the arresting officers waited until Reynolds was done voting on the AWB before picking him up and taking him back to ILL.

    Ah! You guys are awesome! This is more than enough to roll with!

    Thank you very much. This class contains a lot of fence sitters... Maybe I'll be able to make a convert or two.
