Maybe the AWB will sunset, but I always fear some (real or bogus) mega Columbine will come along at the perfect moment to stampede our congress critters into signing it again.
Unfortunately the article will fall on deaf ears of typical suburban soccer moms and dads. They do not believe people should own guns or attempt to defend themselves...
I took lessons to learn to trap shoot. Then decided I should learn how to shoot a handgun. I took handgun lessons taught by a former San Diego policeman. The classes were invaluable. Intimidation gone.
The "extended" assault weapons ban would ban TONS of guns, including ALL semi-automatic shotguns, ALL shotguns that hold < 5 rounds, M1 Garand, Mini-14, ALL semi-autos that can have > 10 rounds with or without fixed magazine.
Why do the lefties hate NRA? Simple, the gun is the only thing keeping the socialists from controlling the masses. Next question?
What part of "shall not be infringed" do these lunatics not understand?
This isn't a "re-authorization," it's a radical expansion.
...especially that Att General provision that can literally ban all guns.
Maryland has some of the tightest gun control laws in the country but Baltimore is the murder capital of the USA. Wonder why? well, for starters, hardly anyone has guns but the criminals.
The best questions to be asking are: "Who is paying Ricker to change his story? Is it Handgun Control, aka the Brady Center? Is it the Violence Policy Center? Is it the Democrat Nazi Committee? Are they offering him financial reward for perjury? Are they suborning perjury?
Names of the Perps:
Can you say "reloads"? Good, I knew you could.
...means the Dems are smart enough not to reveal their intentions concerning gun control until after they're elected.
This is another feel good do nothing regulation that will only be heaped upon the peaceful citizen.
Funny how the "facts" keep changing- first a machine gun, then a high powered rifle, now this:
"He had a Cobray pistol, a Ruger pistol and 11 ammunition clips..."
"Gun Free Zones" are known to gun owner rights advocates as Criminal Empowerment zones or CEZ's.
This article explains the correllation between a weakening of the 2nd Amendment and the increase in violence.
"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed-where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once."
"If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention,"
...Don't think about that assertion too much; it might cause your head to explode...
The major mainscream media are finally catching on to what's happening to this bill. It's finally dawning on them that President Dubya said he would sign a bill that has no chance of clearing Congress - and the trap they THOUGHT had been laid for him politically is really a non-issue. The media hate it when Dubya outsmarts them...again.
Got a call from the RNC, gal trying to read off a spiel about "We must support the president.....".
A clear effort to raise campaign cash for either the party or the candidate, I did not learn which.
I cut her off and explained that my support is dependent on the AW & Hi-cap Mag bans dying.
We need so bad to get this stupid gun law off the books...
If this passes I don't know what I will do in the next election I will have to think hard about how I vote.
A police officer's job is to enforce the law and help to keep the general peace of a community. It is not their job to randomly search cars to look for whatever they want.
Supporting gun control makes you lose elections. Opposing it makes you win.
Too bad no one put it point blank to the NAACP during the trial: "Yes or no. Would it be in your interest for us manufacturers to stop selling guns to dealers that sell to black people? Yes or no."
A nice crisp, clean, forthright damning of the ballistics fingerprints idea-- it -- ballistic fingerprinting -- has never passed the smell test for me.
