And exactly how will and Assault Weapons Ban stop people from buying guns illegally? Do they actually obey the law now? If not, then why would they obey another one??? The penalties for a Straw Purchase is already like 10 years for each count. How long do you think it should be? Some don't get that long for armed crimes! Maybe if you would research what you speak about first, you would realize the biggest issue is the Feds not prosecuting the criminals to the full extent of the law. But then...why would they when they allowed over 2000 weapons to be "Straw Purchased" and walked to Mexico. There have been almost no prosecutions over Fast and Furious! The only one that will obey a new law, is the one that is already obeying the law.
