We had a Federal Assault Weapons Ban from 1994 - 2004 signed into law by Pres. Clinton.

The NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION (NRA) opposed the ban.
How many more innocent children and adults need to tragically die due to profound mental illness and the disturbing reality of how many of these individuals slip through the cracks?
