"Assault Weapon Ban" 

"Assault Weapon Ban"

The legislature under Clinton managed to ban some semi-automatic weapons 10 years ago. The sunset on that ban is in the coming weeks. Senator Dianne Feinstein helped drive the ban 10 years ago, and is back on trying to save it. What she doesn't realize is that a lot of senators that initially voted for the bill have since been pushed out of the senate. Her only saving grace is that she lives in California, a state which will tolerate bans on their freedom, not to mention super-high taxes and incredible debt. Their debate always focuses on trying to make these semi-automatic weapons seem like they are the choice weapons of crimes, when in reality less than 1% of all crimes with guns are used by the guns that were banned. Studies have proven that the guns most often used in crimes are those that are most common, like the 380 auto. This makes sense, since crimes with guns are often crimes of passion and the most convienent weapon is the weapon of choice. That is why many people are stabbed to death.

What's more interesting is that Feinstein believes that she will get support from the president. How much more wrong could she be. She doesn't realize the power of the voting public, and the fact that there are millions of gun owners. The vast majority of those gun owners are going to vote for Bush. Why would he slap them in the face just before a major election.

I recent AFP article claims that 50 officers died due to assault weapons in the last 6 years. That's strange, I thought there was a ban? Perhaps we should conclude the ban is meaningless, since it doesn't prevent crime. But no, what does the AFP author write about? He quotes the Brady group saying that it is due to Bush's failure to push for weapons ban. Could it be more absurd? There other thing they always fail to mention is that 68% of all deaths with firearms ae suicides. Yes, that's right suicides. There are also more deaths by drug overdose them homicides with guns. There are more alcohol-induced deaths than homicides. Why the big issue with guns? Why doesn't Feinstein and the rest spend more effort on fighting drugs?

The fact of the matter is that these people want to be sheep. They want to be told what they can and can't do. They don't want to have to save for retirement, or healthcare. They want their government to baby them. I don't! I want my freedoms. I'll side with Ben Franklin. I'd rather live in a dangerous freedom, than a peaceful slavery.

Comment They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Comment The ban needs to sunset. The guns that were banned are no easier to assault a person with than any other weapon. FOr every weapon banned there is another in the same caliber withthe same rate of fire. The things thatmake an assault weapon assault-like as defined by the congress are simply ergonomics. A rifle with a pistol grip is evil for soem reason. An adjustable stock is dangerous? The color of the weapon has an effect on its usefulness? Please. The ban has to go.
