"WASHINGTON, July 23 - During his campaign for the presidency in 2000, George W. Bush took a dramatic step: a vow to support the ban on assault weapons, enacted in 1994 for a 10-year period.
"It makes no sense for assault weapons to be around our society," Mr. Bush declared.

Since then, the president's advisers have repeatedly affirmed his support for the ban, a position that has helped him appeal to moderate voters and demonstrate independence from the powerful gun lobby. But in the middle of a presidential election year, and with only five working days left in Congress before the law expires at midnight on Sept. 13, the issue has become a hot potato that no one in the Bush administration seems eager to touch.

Mr. Bush has said he would sign legislation extending the ban if the Republican-controlled Congress passed it, and White House officials say he stands by that pledge. But Congress has already begun a six-week recess, and Republicans there say they have yet to hear him declare that he actually wants the legislation to move.

All the while, the clock keeps ticking, leaving legislators of both parties predicting that the ban, which for a decade has barred production and sale of 19 kinds of assault weapons, will lapse. The lawmakers do not return to work until Sept. 7, leaving too little time, many feel, for legislation extending the measure to pass both houses of Congress.

Couple of things here.
1.) I belive in arming ourselves with what our millitary has short only of a nuke. If you can buy an M1A Tank then go for it. If more people had guns, less would be likely to jack someone.

2.) Just because the ban falls, it dosen't mean the Gun makers will have the catologs out and have stores stocked in time to seel a few arms before they manage to pass the law again.

Think about it. The factories have to produce, order forms filled out, licenses issued, shipping, registered, store shelves stocked(if you buy there).

It will take time to get the gun maker machine moving again. At least a week or 2.

A comment on item 2.). When I first heard this story on the radio they said dealers online already have these weapons ready to order so you can get in that window that starts September 13, 2004. If they renew the law, you get a refund. Where these sites are, I'm stil trying to find for obvious reasons. If anyone finds a site that is doing pre-order please let us know. If anyone ever (legally)wanted an uzi, ak47, double pistol grip pump shotgun, tech9, or any other 'assualt' weapon, now is the time to get it.
