It is totally amazing to me that those who know the least about guns are the very ones who want to demonize and legislate against them. Some of these people are completely ignorant of what existing laws are on the books. Some are also ignorant of the functioning of any firearm, what semi automatic, fully automatic, magazine-fed etc. I have owned and have friends who own so called military styled assault rifles for decades. Essentially their functioning is identical to several hunting rifle made by Remington, Winchester and other gun manufacturers.
Most of the gun grabber mentality comes from the northeast ( NY, NJ, Ct ) , Chicago and California. These are the exact locations of the strongest Obama supporters.
