Assault weapons protect

Do you believe in the right to defend yourself?

Then you should be for gun rights because the United States legislature wants to ban some types of assault weapons.

A 1994 bill was passed that you were limited to what kind of assault weapons would be allowed for sale and you were also limited to how much ammo you can buy due to mass shootings with assault rifles.

For example, in 2013 a man with an AR-15 shot up a Navy courtyard. The Justice Department study showed the assault weapons ban was responsible for about a 6.7 percent decrease on total of gun murders.

You should be allowed to own any type of assault weapon if you have a clear criminal record and get your background check before purchasing any type of assault weapon.

The Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 is limiting on the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of over 157 of the most commonly owned military style assault weapons.

They will only be allowed to be sold to those who are law enforcement officers and in the military.

To summarize, you should have a right to own any kind of weapon with rules and regulations as you have the right to protect yourself.
