My question to anyone is, when we had the old AWB I do not remeber reading that much on all the arrest the goverment made due to the restriction. All it did was restrict law abiding citizens. Just like present day, my understanding of articles I have readed if a criminal is brought up on gun charges most are reduction down and not even apply. This is on most of the gun charges that happen around the national that I read about. Most are just reducted down because most were drug arrest or murders, or whatever. So this time around is just another big push on all the law abiding citizens.
