Pulled from another site and thought this was interesting in the wake of more AWB talks:
The Federal "Assault Weapon Ban" was in effect from 1994 to 2004
Over that period...
1994–1995 (17 Homicides and 20 Deaths resulting from school shootings in the U.S.)
1995–1996 (29 Homicides and 35 Deaths resulting from school shootings in the U.S.)
1996–1997 (23 Homicides and 25 Deaths resulting from school shootings in the U.S.)
1997–1998 (35 Homicides and 40 Deaths resulting from school shootings in the U.S.)
1998–1999 (25 Homicides from school shootings in the U.S.)
1999–2000 (25 Homicides from school shootings in the U.S.)
February 29, 2000: Unidentified 6-year-old offender in Michigan school shooting. 1 student fatality.
May 26, 2000: Lake Worth, Florida Lake Worth Middle School Florida teacher Barry Grunow was fatally shot by his student, 13-year-old Nathaniel Brazill, who had returned to school after being sent home at 1 p.m. by the assistant principal for throwing water balloons. Brazill returned to school on his bike with a 5 inch Raven and four bullets stolen from his grandfather the week before. Brazill was an honor student. Grunow was a popular teacher and Brazill's favorite.
August 28, 2000: University of Arkansas shooting at Fayetteville, Arkansas At approximately 12:14 pm, Dr. John R. Locke, 67, Director of the Comparative Literature Program was shot and killed in his office by James E. Kelly, 36, a Comparative Literature PhD candidate who had recently been dismissed from the program for lack of progress towards his degree. Kelly shot Dr. Locke three times before taking his own life in Dr. Locke's office after it was cordoned off by campus police.
September 26, 2000: Darrel Johnson, 13, offender in Louisiana school shooting with 1 student fatality.
March 5, 2001: Charles Andrew William, age 15, offender in California school shooting, 15 wounded 2 of which died.
March 30, 2001: Donald R. Burt Jr., age 18, offender in Indiana school shooting with 1 student fatality.
September 24, 2003: John Jason McLaughlin, age 15, offender in Minnesota school shooting with 2 student fatalities.
February 2, 2004: Unidentified offender in Washington, DC school shooting with 1 student fatality.
May 7, 2004: Unidentified 17 year old offender in Maryland school shooting with 1 student fatality.
For the remainder of the time after the ban expired, most of the shootings involved none of the so called "assault weapons", including the major ones: Virginia Tech massacre, Red Lake massacre, Amish school shooting, Northern Illinois University Shooting, and Oikos University shooting.
I agree with it would be great to have another Constitutionalist Judge on the Supreme Court (every one of them should be as mandated by the oath they took when appointed), I'm convinced Ginsburg is being held up and animated with props from "Weekend At Bernies" by house democrats until PRESIDENT TRUMP leaves office in 4 1/2 more yrs
I ask a question as to their legality because verbally Murphy said possession is illegal and I didn't see anything in the statute making them illegal. I did not condone, state I had or wanted one or that anyone else in NJ should violate NJ law! I was seeking guidance to the statute wording that made them illegal.
The Name of the sub-forum I posted it in is "Current New Jersey Gun Laws Discussion" not, "Lets quote fantasy movies to decide what to talk about".
Apparently either you or myself require remedial reading comprehension tutoring
In NJ when a piece of scum is arrested for a crime and have a firearm in their possession, the firearm charge is dropped for a plea bargain guilty plea on the other charge
If your a law abiding citizen caught in the NJ gun laws trap and they can't charge you with anything else they will fight tooth and nail to imprison you for that.
Case in point: A while back, (I'm thinking 15ish yrs ago) a guy was arrested, convicted and sentenced in NJ. His crime? He had a Hollow Point bullet in a drilled out case (OBVIOUSLY no powder) with a spent primer on his key ring.
Sad (discussing) thing is, its gotten worse since then.
In light of what's going on today apparently its OK to riot, loot, burn, physically assault, murder (assassinate LEO"s). But its not OK to holster a tool to defend yourself from it!
I live in a semi-urban town where I'm not in proximity to what the afore mentioned pieces of shit are doing. The peaceful protesters(?) are calling for the dispansion PD"s and the looters are loving it. I hope they do in places like NYC, Chicago, LA, Detroit. I would LOVE to see how that works out for them (fuking MORONS).
