The frivolous lawsuits filed by Milberg Weiss, seeking to hold lawful firearms manufacturers responsible for the actions of criminals, led to the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

    That's why they want guns banned! So they can go into the black market arms trade after they're all made illegal.

    They should all serve prison time IMHO.

    Aside from that, it's always been said that criminals favor gun control.

    Pretty much sums up the liberal motto:do as I say,not as I do.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
