My UZI carbine that I built through a series on this site looks like the real original UZI. Except it is semi-automatic and has a longer barrel to adhere to the ATF regulations. It fires a bullet 1 time each time the trigger is pressed, like every other rifle used for sport or hunting or self defense.
There is a poll at USATODAY right now. The question is whether “military style assault weapons” should be banned.
The reality is that Assault weapons, by definition are select fire weapons capable of fully automatic fire. As such these are already heavily regulated under the NFA and nearly impossible for a “common citizen” to own.
Due to the NFA regulations they cost upwards of $20,000 and require a years worth of legal hoops to acquire. So, what this poll is really asking is if firearms that “look” like military style assault weapons should be banned. Because as well all know, the scarier something looks the more dangerous
Everyone should vote for no.
At the time I write this No is at 91%
