New calls for assault-gun ban

Activists are putting pressure on the feds to re-instate the assault weapons ban. Interestingly, this article states that Pelosi and Reid are opposed to the gun ban. In fact, its believed that a large number of dems are opposed. Obama however, still supports the ban.

"Democrats have finally gotten it," said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. "The message they've gotten is if they become gun-control advocates, they are going to suffer at the polls."

I hope the above statement is true.

Go NRA!

This is exactly what got the activists all fired up again. Every time we have a maniac that goes on a shooting rampage, we then have activists screaming that its the guns, its the guns!!

That's about as stupid as blaming Ford or Chevy for drunk drivers that kill innocent victims.

Obama is on a mission, I don't doubt that one bit. Even though the dems have a majority rule right now, I think he'll have a hard time getting this passed.

We most definitely need to keep a close eye on how this develops.

Muzzleloaders were "assault rifles" for the first 80 years of our history. 140 years ago, people could've argued that the rate of fire gained by breechloaders was just too high to be safe for civilians.

Any effort that assumes that crime is rooted in the weapon, not the mind, is doomed to failure because the first murder was probably committed with a rock.

I suppose at some point in our history the guy with the biggest stick had an assault weapon. You simply cannot fix a software problem by regulating hardware. The problem with humans killing one another is in the "software " upstairs. Not in the hardware in their hands.

Little does he know, but this statement is very revealing about our lil' friend.

Most of us here, if times got tough would use our guns to protect our families, hunt for food and be self-reliant.

Civetcat would look to big daddy government to give him food stamps.
