The  government has banned assault weapons by decree, but the legislation to do so will follow next month?

 

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/03/20/new-zealand-bans-military-assault-rifles-after...

 

"New Zealand is banning all assault rifles, high-capacity magazines and military-style semi-automatic rifles in response to the nation's deadliest massacre in history, the country's prime minister announced Thursday.

 

"Jacinda Ardern said the ban goes into effect immediately and would be followed by legislation next month. New Zealand's citizens should make arrangements to turn in weapons banned under the new laws, Ardern told the nation in a live television announcement."

 

If that was done by declaring a 'national emergency' in this country how loud would be the uproar, calling the President a dictator?

Why can't America be as sane as New Zealand? Assault weapons are the first choice of mass murderers. Ban them and exact huge fines on anyone who illegally obtains one. Assault rifles are an assault on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happines. **bleep** the NRA for defending such an indiscriminate killing machine.
