-- Twenty three (23) state attorneys general have signed a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, expressing their opposition to reinstatement of the federal ban on semi-automatic firearms.
"The high court's landmark decision (District of Columbia. v. Heller, et al.) affirmed that individual Americans have a constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms," the letter stated. "We do not believe that further restricting law-abiding Americans' access to certain semiautomatic firearms serves any real law enforcement purpose." The letter concluded, "... we do not believe that reinstating the 1994 assault weapons ban will solve the problems currently facing the United States or Mexico."
