Rahm Emanuel calls for nation wide ban on assault-weapons

During a ceremony Monday morning at the Chicago Police Department graduation, Rahm Emanuel called for nation wide ban on assault-weapons.

“It’s time that we as a city have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a state have an assault weapons ban. It’s time that we as a country have an assault weapons ban,”

Seems to me Rahm Emanuel needs to get his facts straight. Assault weapons have been banned and regulated since 1934.

Lets not get semi-auto firearms and full auto / selective fire firearms mixed up.

For a weapon to be deemed an “assault rifle”, it has to be capable of either selective fire in burst, or full auto. Those weapons have been banned and regulated with the National Firearms Act of 1934.

So Rahm Emanuel would have us ban something that is already banned? How is that supposed to work out?
