FLASHBACK! How effective was the ‘assault’ weapons ban back in 1999?

Just how good did the assault weapons ban work back in 1999? Let us tune up the Way-Back Machine (Old Videos) and see what was reported and discussed after the Columbine High School shooting. Then-President Bill Clinton was involved in an “Assault Weapons Ban” way back then. Just what good did it do and what were the mainstream media opinions back then?

As Written and Reported By Trey Sanchez for Truth Revolt:

In the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, the buzz among the Left is an assault weapons ban as the fix to stop future mass shootings. They aren’t willing to arm teachers or hire trained veterans to protect schools. The Left wants that pesky AR-15 out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. Then, and only then, will the gun violence problem in America be solved.

But not so fast.
