Sample Annotation Johnson, B. R. “Concealed Weapons.” National Review 26 September 1994: 54-57 Mr. Johnson argues against the assault weapon ban in a recently passed crime bill. He argues that the banned weapons are similar to weapons which are not banned, that these weapons are used in an insignificant number of crimes, and that registration is the first step toward confiscation. Therefore, he gives strong evidence for a case against gun control.
