The studies mostly found the ban didn't affect overall gun violence.
The Columbine shooting in Colorado, for example, happened during the shooting ban.
But the most recent study also concluded a new ban on large magazines holding lots of bullets and a ban on assault weapons may bring small reductions in some of the most serious mass shootings.
Pind said history shows bans, including the 1994 one, don't work.
"The biggest thing it did was increase the price, it jacks the price up because people think they can't get them," he said.
Pind also believes if someone is going to do something wrong, they're going to do it whether they can get an AR-15 or not.
"You can probably do a lot more damage with a hunting rifle and they only hold five rounds. The velocity and the size of the bullet is so much bigger, they're a lot more devastating. You just can't shoot as much ammunition as fast as the AR-15s," he said.
Multiple attempts to pass a new assault weapons ban have failed in the U.S. Congress.
Most recently, an attempt to make that ban permanent in 2013 failed in the Senate by a 60-40 vote.
Pind said one way to curb gun violence and damage is through mandatory training.
"They won't let you drive an automobile unless you take a test. But yet they're going to give a 19-year-old the right to carry a handgun just because he's 19," he said.
