“1986: Ronald Reagan signs off on permanent machine gun ban.”

Actually, we got a lot more in that bill than we gave up. Without the “Firearms owner protection act” as it was called, gun shows were nearly impossible, and any sale of a firearm to anyone could potentially get you in trouble.

As far as today goes, this is just a pathetic rerun of 1996. We just came off of a great win (2010/1994) and then put up a really weak candidate, causing gun owners to sit on their hands, and (clintoon/zero) to survive for another four years.

Boy it makes me angry that we can’t ever FINISH the job!

That is the history of the GOP, whenever the conservative voters find a way to make gains, the establishment always finds a way to counter them.
