Ronald Reagan on Assualt weapons

Ronald Reagan in a spech Feb. 06, 1989. In reaction to the shooting at Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton CA several weeks earlier.

And it should probably be pointed out that while Reagan used the words “machine gun“, automatic weapons were already banned at this point, and the weapon used had been a semi-automatic civilian version of the ak-47. Much as the ar-15 Bushmaster rifle so favored today is largely a civilian version of the m-16.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
