Congress has the power to tax and regulate and the SCOTUS has ruled that regulation is not infringement.

From 1994-2004 this country had the original AWB and many people are pushing for it to be reinstated.

Let's pretend we (PH) are a congressional committee tasked with debating this issue.


I'll act as committee chairman and ask the first question to anyone who wants to appear on our panel.
Then we'll take turns.


Question: Considering the speed with which AW's can kill and their constant reappearance at mass murder sites,
Does their danger to our society not outweigh their lawful utility to the gun owning public?





Anyone care to play the first witness? (remember......you are under oath)

Let's try to keep this like a real hearing.
The next questioner will be the Ranking member and presumably anti-AWB.......then we'll take turns ..pro vs anti awb.

Volunteer to be Ranking member?
Volunteer to be first witness?


(see if this topic is of interest)

No-one wants to actually discuss this issue instead of pontificating and derailing? (not surprised)

No. They don’t. “Legitimate public danger” could be used to ban our right to protest as well. Should it be?
