I remember really...it was useless and lost the dems their power seat for a long while. It showed them what the 3rd rail is.

A few things to remember about the 1994 CLINTON gun ban

1) it cost the SITTING SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE - Tom Foley (d)WA his job

2) it cost the democrats control of the house of representatives

3) it was a "foot in the door" socialist gun controllers always wanted - they immediately began talking about the 7 round magazine limit (see New York state 2013), a ban on all semi-autos, and some kind of restrictions on "sniper rifles" AKA - hunting rifles.

4) everything was very expensive HK-91 magazines that should have cost $20 were going for $75 - thank you federal government.

5) magazine companies tooled up as quickly as possible and a lot of them turned out complete junk, I don't even know who they all were as they didn't even bother to mark their product (I wouldn't have either if I were putting out such junk)

6) Senator Max Baucus (d)MT claimed he didn't even know how many firearms were banned by name in the bill for which he voted. (he wasn't haing an affair either, he wrote the TARP bill, helped push through Obamacare, what a winner!)


Not fond memories - especially those about the next step so many gun grabbers were ready to take afterwards, like I said - the foot in the door! California actually DID confiscate firearms - some rifles that were allowed to be registered under an extended grace period that the state later "revoked" or some such nonsense. I will never "register" my Constitutional rights.

Fuzzy on the exact sequence of events, but it was 2000 when they wanted all AR's and AK's registered along with other non-assault weapons which were converted to become assault weapons, such as Mini-14's with aftermarket pistol grip stocks, but Mini-14's with the factory stock are exempt from registration. They also flip flopped a few times on imported SKS with non-detachable magazines but decided they had to be registered as well.

Then after it was all said and done, in 2001, when the grace period was over, the legislature decided that the previously SKS which they allowed to be registered was too dangerous to be allowed at all, so they notified all the law abiding gun owners who registered those guns to turn them in.

We did get to keep all the AR's and AK's but somehow the SKS was too dangerous. Whatever.

I remember getting my neutered DPMS sans flash hider. Two years post ban you could still get new mags. Makers ran a whole bunch.

Bought a thumbhole stock Maadi AK47 for around $250.00 no bayonet lug, threaded barrel had a muzzle cover welded on it.
Back then you didnt see ak parts around. I bought if for spares. I still have it.
I did comb the shows for Sig 226-228 mags for around $55 anything under that was a good deal to me.
Same with Glock 17 and 19 mags. I tried to find them under $55.
On the positive side 50 Linked BMG ammo was $1 a round.
5.56 PMP battle packs were dam cheap around $30 for 200 rounds.

I remember having to get a letterhead to buy a rifle (colt 6920), registering I as an "assault weapon". Needing an ID and permission to buy standard capacity magazines.

It did nothing but hurt law abiding citizens.

$125 13-round Glock 21 mags, ARs with collapsible stocks pinned open, AKs with under-folding stocks pinned open, cheap ammo, Romanian SARs for $300, SKSs at $90-100, ARs with goofy looking muzzle-brakes, flashiders that were closed, thumb-hole stocks, folks paying primo $ for "pre-ban" AR lowers and slapping 6920 uppers on them (you could always tell the SP1 lowers because you'd see an M4A3 w/no mag fence).

Which is the only group that gun control ever actually effects anyway. Gun control is not about stopping crime, it is about controlling the rank and file citizen. Always has been used for that purpose...and always will be.

94 ban memories of a teen shooter

Perfect- with all the talk around lately, alot of this stuff has been coming back to me. We are getting older after all ladies and gentlemen. I was a teen shooter with his second pistol. In '94 I remember wondering what the little old ladies would think about my G-21 loaded with Black Talon ammo. Double evil! LOL The news was all over it. They made it sound like anything black would kill you, immediately, without mercy (Wait a minute...). An older friend made the point to 'just not talk about it'. People seemed to be wary of talking about certain weapons, ammo or mags. Would someone 'turn you in'? Who would care? Why can't I just buy what I want? It really was a confusing time for me. But I could pawn my magazine for $50 to get me over the weekend. Since then I've learned the rules of Citizenship of this Republic (the Constitution). I truly hope that there are'nt any young shooters still confused about these things today. The IntraWeb has probably helped some. I do know that their video games have owners' manuals, and so does their government. See that they read, understand, and follow all safety precautions to avoid tyranny. And remember this- there is no more important safety item than these, our Arms.

I remember buying a blue label G23 with 3 mags marked "RESTRICTED, LE/GOVT ONLY" in 2004.

Yeah, I don't care. I carry one of those in my carry weapon, and a 15 round G22 mag as a reload. Testing, testing, 1 - 2 - 3, testing..... I will comply with all TEXAS gun laws.

Looking at how many guns were sold since the term BAN came up.
AND
Looking at how many young people voted for O.

I think there are a lot of people who need a history lesson.

I must have missed it somehow. I found a 30 rnd mag for my p89 for $25 in 2001. $30 for a 30 rnd Berreta 92 mag. My roommate bought a bushmaster for around 900 and had 30 round mags with it.

I think a lot of that is people being stupid to be on TV.

Personally, I could have been on TV many times, I don't want to be on TV for being stupid.

The TV networks edit out the people they don't want in the show. There is not a whole lot of live TV anymore. Coherent well spoken people do not make good TV in the eye of many networks.

All that i remember was my chief telling me about the ban. Then how he felt about the people in washington. Then he told me to get my guns and 12 mags for both guns and meet him at the range(the range was only 100 yards away). 6 mags for me 6 for him. He told me to go full auto and shoot.
After we were done he sead f@@@ washington we have our 30 round mags an an M16 any time we want.
Todays problems are a little more conserning. I DO NOT HAVE THE COAST GUARDS GUNS ANY MORE.

I may have had a good bunch of LEO magazines during the ban without ever having been an LEO.
