You don't understand. The ban was an excellent piece of legislation, but those eeeevillll gun manufacturers took advantage of loopholes
in the law and actually built guns that complied with the law completely but still launched projectiles.
It was all the fault of those eeeevilll gun makers, don't you see? If they hadn't so callously exploited the loopholes the ban would have worked.
