I oppose the pending assault weapons ban for the restrictions are unconstitutional. As Alexander Hamilton, one of our founding fathers, so eloquently stated “… if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can NEVER be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens..”. The Americans have the right to defend themselves against a tyrannical government and restricting American Citizens to certain types of firearms brings the Government one step closer to banning all firearms, which inevitably leads to oppression of the people, this has been seen in numerous countries. Americans also have the right to protect themselves from criminals. Since criminals ignore the law adding more laws will not help the situation and those who think so are fools.
