There is no AWB because...
So other than Ms. McCarthy's definition in H.R. 1022, what is an assault weapon? Hand me that spoon over there and I can use it as a weapon to assualt you...Get the idea right...I know me = preacher...everyone here = choir...Anyway...
Please call this the military style rifle ban, the military looking rifle ban, the black rifle ban or something along those lines.
We are letting the anti-rights people frame the debate and the terminology of the debate. If we start using AWB or assault weapons as a term then we will lose again. We were lucky last time in that there was an expiration on it. This time she has proposed it with no expiration.
Thank you...I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

the most profoundly stupid thing about this "military style rifle ban" is its direct contradiction to us v miller (1939) which many anti-gunners have used in the past. facts don't seem to matter much these days, no matter what stance you have on a subject...

Exactly. According to the Miller case, a sawed-off shotgun was not protected for keeping and bearing because (in the court's ill-informed view) it was not a weapon suitable for military use (even though it saw use in trench warfare). So a gun that was not useful to the military is not allowed.

There is no rational sense to what gun-prohibitionists believe. We have always known that.

spin is just another word for lie. Any thing can be used as a weapon.

Its not about "assault weapons".
Its about a piecemeal attempt to ban the private ownership of weapons.
One class of gun at at time.
Need instructions of how it happens ?
Look for the "how to" in Britain,Canada or Australia.
The antis will never stop until their goal is accomplished. Whether it takes 1 year or 1 decade is irrelevant.
hecks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

Convicted felons are allowed to vote in at least 38 states. They are one of the largest voting blocs in the Democrat scalawag constituency. Liberal Democrats do pander to criminals.
