It's got to be acknowledged that all the US Assault weapons in Mexico is an issue of Gun Smuggling. I would grant that they only have to be smuggled a short distance, but if Gun Smuggling can't be stopped, assault weapons can't be stopped period. Making an assault weapon isn't as difficult as it used to be.

Wow, I actually found the story from Portland Oregon years ago where this father and son were making Mac10 and Mac11 machine pistols in their own illegal factory. I remember seeing this on TV. It affected my whole opinion on Gun Control.

A two-person assault weapons factory folks.

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.
