Update: Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters Wednesday that President Obama would like to "reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons" that expired in 2004 under the Bush administration. Holder said the ban would not only be a "positive move" by the United States, but would help reduce the trafficking of guns to the drug cartels in Mexico. It looks like the gun boom is far from over.

And no one can even define "assault weapons"! Is an AR15 in semiautomatic an "assault weapon"? How about a Ruger 10/22 with a 30 round clip? Or a bolt action .308 with a 15 round clip? Or a .40 caliber Springfield XDM pistol with a 16 round clip?
Here comes the nightmare, are we ready?
