Saturday, 22 May 2010 - Mexico's Calderon Knows Nothing About America's Gun Laws - Mexico's Calderon Knows Nothing About America's Gun Laws: "Calderon claimed that these were 'powerful weapons.' It is a common misunderstanding as the 'assault weapons' ban conjures up images of machine guns used by militaries. Yet the 1994 federal assault weapons ban had nothing to do with machine guns, only semiautomatics, which fire one bullet per pull of the trigger. The AK-47s banned by the assaults weapons ban were civilian, semiautomatic versions of the gun. The banned guns fired the same type of bullets, with the same rapidity, and doing the same damage as deer hunting rifles. Their inside guts are essentially the same as deer hunting rifles -- some people just like to own these 'military-style' weapons because of the way they look on the outside. The firing mechanisms in semiautomatics and machine guns are completely different. The entire firing mechanism of a semi-automatic gun has to be gutted and replaced to turn it into a military AK-47."
