This isn't quite true. I'm not sure about all states and cities, etc.. but most of the ones i know of this is not the case.
I can get a drive's license in a matter of hours with minimal cash. If i want to buy an "assault weapon" (which is a stupid fucking term that fear mongers came up with; really, what weapon isn't made for assaulting?!?!) i would have to come up with at least $850, pass a FDLE back ground check, and then wait 3 days to pick up the weapon. Now if i'm a convicted criminal i can still obtain a DL but will not legally get my hands on a firearm.
