Days before the weapons http://topfirearmssupplies.com/ became legal Al Qaeda released another video telling its members to go to the USA and buy the assault weapons when they become legal.

The main reason why the bill was not renewed is the NRA, National Rifle Association. The members of the NRA have been waiting for this day since 1994. The group is so powerful to stop a weapon from getting banned because of their money and ability to persuade the public. If the members of congress were to renew the bill, their days in would be limited.
