Kudos to Don Young...

Kudos to Don Young and the other sensible members of congress who supported the sunset of Title XI of the Federal Violent Crime Control Act of 1994. Thank you for sending it to the legislative graveyard. Once again, law-abiding citizens of Alaska will be able to purchase rifles, shotguns and handguns of their choice. The so called, "assault weapons ban" did little to prevent crime and was a source of headache for both the BATF and local law enforcement responsible for enforcing this ambiguous and unconstitutional law. After ten long years, I look forward to exercising the right - again.
