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.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
