PBA supports an absolute ban on assault weapons for private citizens

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“There is no legitimate reason for an assault weapon with their high capacity magazines to ever be in the hands of a private citizen.  Those are weapons designed for the military and/or law enforcement that are only used in extreme circumstances.  We wholeheartedly support an absolute ban on the sale to, or possession of assault weapons to anyone except the military or law enforcement officers.”
