“Things change in half a century”
Even on February 1, 2013 another Democrat—Slow Joe Biteme—basically admits that all this sturm und drang over guns is just smoke and mirrors: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/02/01/biden-concedes-new-laws-wont-end-gun-massacres/
So, like Obamacare—if it won’t work or if ain’t broke why fix it?
For the same reason hounds lick their `nads: because they can.
PS Specifically from the article today: “Nothing we are going to do is fundamentally going to alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down,” Biden said, echoing remarks President Barack Obama made in January when he said “there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely.”
Like the TARP bailout where we learned yesterday that taxpayers will lose even more billions, and healthcare where we learn every day of some new charge (tax, penalty, fine—whatever) here they say `It probably won’t work but .... ‘
After the (so called) `Assault Weapons Ban’ in `94, the Columbine school shootings in `99. Someone here posted several pages of school shootings that happened during the ten year ban.
We can also thank Democrats for `gun free’ school zones, happy hunting grounds for the criminally insane. The Democrats have the effrontery tot lump law abiding, tax-paying citizen gun-owners with criminals.
And the left scratches their pointy heads and can’t seem to understand our umbrage and why we have so little patience with their nonsense.
