“But saying some nonexistent Assault Weapons Ban is not only imminent, but is virtually assured of passage is nothing but hyperbole, unless somebody can provide some evidence to the contrary, I don’t see the Republican leadership ever even letting such a bill get out of the committee process.”
In calmer moments I tend to agree. But things are dicey in Illinois, and the House has already gone wobbly re the fiscal cliff. Right now it looks like the Pubbies may at least go “OK, no more hicap mags”. JMHO.
I think were on the same page there, there is certainly reason for concern. But concern is one thing, irrational negativity is another. I'm just getting sick of seeing these posts that "It time to run for the hills! It's all over! The Assault Weapons Ban is a done deal, Obama's is going to get everything he wants, he's going to use his mind control device to force the Republican House to craft the bill and pass it by next week." I'm really glad some of these people weren't around during the Revolutionary War or they would have been declaring the cause lost before King George's ships even left Britain.
The fact that the State does not want its’ citizens to possess high capacity magazines, is inherent proof of their effectiveness.
