Senator Cruz: 'Assault Weapons' Ban Targets Guns For Looking 'Scary,' Not Functionality

Senator Ted Cruz showed the Senate Judiciary Committee today that many of the guns that are exempted from the assault weapons ban have the same functionality and use the same caliber as guns that are banned. Cruz showed how a common hunting rifle, that would be exempt from the ban, would fall under the banned weapons if he only added "a piece of plastic" to the gun. The gun would function the same with or without the grip, but would be banned with the grip.
