    A sign we're winning in the war against ignorance concerning "Assault Weapons"

    Check out this article.

    Obama still backs new gun ban; top senator less certain - CNN.com

    Notice how many times it is emphasized that what's being discussed, is semi automatic weapons. Of course, CNN goes on to say that they "mimic" assault weapons.

    Then, when explaining Harry Reid's position, it is stated this way, "Reid told ABC on Sunday that he backed expanding background checks to private gun sales at shows and other steps, but he refused to endorse a ban on what are called assault-style rifles modeled after military weapons.

    This distinction is made again a bit later - "A popular version is the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle that can be purchased with magazines holding 30 rounds." Of course, then they attach, "A similar weapon was used in the Connecticut school shooting that killed 20 first graders and revived a national focus on tougher gun control measures."

    There is a clever ruse here being used to still try and tie these rifles to military weapons, but the fact that in this article, that separation is made between "Assault Weapon" and a weapon that "Mimics" a military weapon or an Assault "style" weapon, is a small shaft of light providing hope that we are winning the information war. Once we divide the idea of "Assault Weapons" and "Automatic Weapons" from publicly available AR-15s or AK-47s, there'll be little hope IMO for a ban.

    Of course, we could just read the end of this article as well: "However, Denver University law professor David Kopel said last week that the Supreme Court made clear that gun control could not include weapons used commonly by law-abiding citizens, such as the top-selling AR-15 that Feinstein's legislation would ban."

    I'm actually shocked that this article, even as pro-gun control as it still is, was published on a CNN website.

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    He(President Obama) added, "if there's one life we can save, we've got an obligation to try."
    The Bill of Rights are not just for one person but for all the people.

    President Obama stated "our law enforcement officers should never be out gunned."
    Most law enforcement agencies are not in no way out gunned. They have fully automatic weapons, armored vehicles, and other military weapons in their arsenals.

    President Obama stated "there's no legislation being proposed to subvert the Second Amendment."
    ".....Shall not be infringed".

    While President Obama got applause it did not sound like it was very rousing....
    "One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation."
    --Thomas B. Reed, American Attorney

    Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."

    Interesting post by Marko Kloos (aka, MunchkinWrangler): The Amazing Morphing Definition ('assault weapons').

    When you or I have them, they’re called “assault weapons”, and they’re made for nothing but killing large numbers of people rapidly, and totally useless for self-defense besides.

    When law enforcement officers have them, they’re called “patrol rifles”, and they’re the best tool for protecting innocent citizens from violent criminals.

    When the government orders 7,000 of them, they’re called “personal defense weapons”, and the DHS wants them because they are “suitable for self-defense in close quarters.”

    Which is it? Are they only made for killing lots of people rapidly, or “suitable for self-defense in close quarters”? If they’re only good for rapid indiscriminate killing, why would cops and DHS agents need them? And if they have a legit self-defense function, why should they be banned for civilian use?

    Next thing we know, there will be a photo op picture of Barry, Harry and Di-Di out coyote hunting with some "Black Rifles" with a caption saying, "hey gun fanatics, look, politicians are just like you", just to give the impression they are not out to ban them.

    These clowns are running this crap so everyone lets their guard down, so they can pass all this garbage without us looking.
