What is your take on the FAWB in relation to exactly what the 2nd Amendment means. If they can ban assault rifles why could they not ban handguns, most rifles and shotguns. Allow us to only buy .22 air rifles or something ridiculous. I mean the 2nd Amendment allows us to bear arms, say they ban all but .22, could they claim that by allowing us only the .22 then they are not violating the Constitution?The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB) was a provision of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law of the United States that included a prohibition on the sale of semi-automatic "assault weapons" manufactured after the date of the ban's enactment. The ten-year ban was passed by Congress on September 13, 1994 and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton the same day. The ban expired on September 13, 2004, as part of the law's sunset provision.
