I sent an email to my Congressman Jason Altmire about this topic below is his reply and a link to the attachment.
Dear Mr. Mason,
Thank you for previously contacting me about gun control. I appreciate hearing from you.
I wanted to take a moment to update you on my efforts to protect your Second Amendment rights. Recent remarks by Attorney General Eric Holder indicated that the administration would seek to reinstate the 1994 ban on assault weapons, which expired in 2004.
These "assault weapons" are often not automatic weapons, but rather shoot one round per pull of the trigger. Many are passed down from generation to generation. These weapons are used for the same purposes as other legal firearms: competitive shooting, hunting and self-defense. I also do not see a correlation in crime rates, which began to fall prior to the ban and continued after it expired.
For these reasons, I joined with sixty-four other members of Congress concerned about the Second Amendment rights of Americans and wrote a letter to Attorney General Holder, urging him to reconsider the plans to reinstate this ineffective and intrusive policy. I have attached the letter for your reference.
It is an honor to represent you, and I will continue to fight for your rights in Congress. If I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other matter, please feel free to be in touch.
Member of Congress
