You heard it, straight from Obama's mouth. He dared not touch the subject in his first term but has nothing to lose if he is re-elected. We MUST keep him from being re-elected. Obama must go!
Yeah, let's take those assault weapons away from the Federal Gestapo. More lives are saved by armed citizens than are taken by crooks. But of course the "liberal" media and lying pols never tell you that. Any attempt to disarm Americans will create a civil war.
I agree that if they could get the dimwits and those on the NRA payroll to 'define' and assault weapon accurately, they should be banned from public ownership. The problem is the slippery slope that this would start on a slide. Once they, they being Congress and primarily liberals, are allowed to ban any sort of gun, they won't stop.
I hunt, I target shoot and I own 7 different kinds of guns, none of which are the automatic, assault weapon type. If I need a fully automatic weapon to shoot a bird, deer, elk, or much of anything else, I likely should not be allowed to shoot a gun at all.
This ban would not stop crime, it wouldn't even reduce it...it would however cut down on the mass murder type crimes, which aren't all that prevalent anyway, but they still need to be stopped.
