I think we all have a right to a high five over Harry Reids announcement that the assault weapons ban is going to be dropped from the Democrats current legislative package in the Senate. However, its far too early to declare victory and go home.
Dianne Feinstein has already announced that shell try to restore it as a late amendment to other legislation before the session is over. And there are still the matters of the proposed ban on standard capacity magazines, and the universal background check remaining before Congress. The latter, of course, has particularly huge loopholes which promise to criminalize the innocent, and create the gun registration which, historically, has been a precursor to gun confiscation.
And, the fight continues in numerous theaters. New York, where the already passed and ironically named SAFE Act waits to trickbag citizens of the Empire State. Colorado, where Governor Hickenlooper is expected to sign a truly Draconian anti-gun package into law this very day. Connecticut, where some totally off-the-wall legislation is under discussion at the state house. And the rest of the country.

Lurch (who served in Viet Nam) is also signing on to the UN Treaty on Small Arms, which can lead to abrogation of our 2A rights.
There will be nothing to High Five over until Harry Reid and Mitch his bitch are out of the Senate.
Excellent points Weve won the battle (for now) over the Assault Weapon Scam, but the fight continues against the universal background check.
Does anyone really want to give those jackals that kind of power over our private property?
I really meant to call them Sleazy power hungry Jackals.
(please excuse my oversight on the matter)
