@Cheeseman,

Is that your rifle in the picture?

The last assault weapon ban had nothing to do with public safety or how many rounds the weapon held. It was about controlling the importation of cheap weapons. The Pre-ban SKS didn't have a detachable magazine. It would have been legal in both CA and MA. It had a 10 shot magazine much like the mosin nagant. You couldn't find high capacity magazines for the AK. If they were around no one was buying them. Major sporting magazines such as outdoor life hailed the SKS as the poor mans deer rifle. All the sudden we had the assault weapons ban.

Today anyone with a CNC set up and knowledge of firearms is building AR parts. In another 10 years they will be geared up to build firearms on the same scale as ruger or winchester. well, they won't because we will have another assault weapons ban. We will go back to only mainstream manufacturers being able to distribute firearms. Why do you think ruger openly supported the last assault weapons ban?

Aah, 'fraid not, I bet that one is worth some serious jing, as I would bet most of these were converted to percussion if they were in good shape. This is a Bing photo from some museum methinks.

Clinton and Gore were paying their debt to the Anti Gun Brady Campaign. It was very close Gore was called in to cast the 1 deciding vote. The Dems got their butts kicked all over the country. Dick Morris now Fox News was the brains behind the Clinton AWB. Smart Ass Morris told the DNC not to worry the NRA and gun owners were paper tigers. The Dems lost so damn many seats they are still afraid of new gun laws.

AWB was BS an only made $3.00 dollar magazines cost 50 bucks. The fact that changing uppers was considered Mfg, a firearm was a PIA. The flash suppressors were removed and bayonet lugs removed and prices went up. It was all a joke but Liberals thought they had really done some thing. Idiot.

The owner did support it to an extent. He suggested congress should ban magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds.

^ William B. Ruger (1992). "An Open Letter". American Handgunner 12 (5): 18.

Quote:
"The best way to address the firepower concern is therefore not to try to outlaw or license many millions of older and perfectly legitimate firearms (which would be a licensing effort of staggering proportions) but to prohibit the possession of high capacity magazines. By a simple, complete and unequivocal ban on large capacity magazines, all the difficulty of defining 'assault rifle' and 'semi-automatic rifles' is eliminated. The large capacity magazine itself, separate or attached to the firearm, becomes the prohibited item. A single amendment to Federal firearms laws could effectively implement these objectives."

Bill Ruger and all progun people knew that President Clinton would pass the AWB. Everyone knew the AWB had a Sundown clause written into it. In the end game it was lets make it the best we can and then work to close it down under the Sundown rule. That is what happened under Bush. I don't think that Bill Ruger ever supported the AWB. This was put out by the Liberals as a win but they lost in the end. The Labor Unions who were attacking Ruger put this out as if Ruger was antigun. The Clinton AWB was a joke.
