Answering the question on the title here really. No! Definitely wouldn't make the streets safer. Like many have said, the bad guys aren't going to turn in their assault weapons. Also, I think the media has just scared most of our gun fearing Americans into thinking assault rifles are mass murder weapons. If you are strongly anti gun and don't know yet, full automatic weapons are already illegal and only allowed in the hands of the federal and state government. A legally owned assault rifle can only shoot one bullet with every pull of the trigger. Anyway back to the bill. I'm not fully opposed to it. I think it provides options to Americans trying to make some room in their gun safes.
