Still, the NRA argues that even if it were worth Americans giving up their constitutional rights, which it claims it is not, a ban on the sale of guns such as the AR-15 simply would not work. To make this case they cite research on a previous assault-weapons ban, which was introduced in 1994 under President Bill Clinton following a string of high-profile mass shootings such as the 1993 Waco siege, but allowed to expire 10 years later under President George W Bush. Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's chief executive, con- fidently told Congress earlier this year that this government study had rated the ban a 'complete failure' because it had little impact on total crime. But this was news to Christopher Koper, a professor of criminology at George Mason University and the lead author of the study. 'To the contrary, it found some encouraging signs,' he later told an interviewer. 'Like, an average 40 per cent drop in the number of assault weapons used in crimes.'
