WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is adamant about invoking a law against ownership of semi-automatic weapons in the United States.

Obama also wants to see to it that people without permits can’t just purchase guns. The president said on Tuesday he is supporting a new anti-weapons law proposed by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Feinstein announced on Sunday that she in cooperation with the Congress wants to propose a new gun law that prohibits the ownership of semi-automatic assault weapons.
This active stand against assault weapons comes on the heels of the Connecticut Massacre where shooter Adam Lanza used a semi-automatic assault riffle to commit his heinous crime.
Assault rifles were forbidden in the United States for more than 10 years. That law expired in 2004 however and has not been renewed since.
Many Americans took advantage of the sudden freedom to own assault riffles and purchased kalasjnikov (AK-47) or AR-15 assault weapons.
The White House released a statement saying that President Barack Obama will make it known next week how he intends to stricken sales of assault weapons even further.
Many Americans believe that owning guns is their civilian right under the US 2nd Amendment, which states ‘US Citizens have the right to own and carry guns’.
In the past 30 years, the United States has witnessed several dozen gun related deaths, taking numerous lives. Most of these deaths were caused by individuals owning assault-weapons legally.
3 of the worst shooting deaths in US history occurred in 2012.
