The law they are going to introduce doesn't ban anything but the purchase of new assault weapons and magazines. Right now 10-years worth of assault weapons and magazines are being purchased by people who are afraid they will not be able to get them later. The same thing happened before the last ban. Doubtless these weapons will end up in homes that would not have brought them except for the manufactured scarcity. We just made it more likely they will get into the wrong hands, not less.
