In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

That is what happens when you are more concerned with getting something done right now instead of doing it right.

It was already passed under the Brady Bill.

It just requires an executive order, which Bush decided not to renew.  Obama can renew the Ban whenever he likes.
The Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired on September 13, 2004, as part of the law's sunset provision. There have been multiple attempts to renew the ban,[1] but no bill has reached the House floor for a vote. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Assault_Weapons_Ban

Separately from the FAWB, the regulation of Assault Weapons is still pre empowered by the executive branch.  All it takes is an executive order.

Stephen, I've heard that he can only issue an executive order that applies to imported weapons not those manufactured in the US. 
That is my final post on this topic on this thread, because it really doesn't belong here.  I should not have commented on the thread at all.

By changing the deductions and investment income you can obviously change the tax amount. Median household income is $52,762 (http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000.html), so why only pick examples that are so much higher?
