The Constitution will live another day!
Congress is cowardly!
Dont give a rats a**
What assault weapons bill?
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
I don't know that there will necessarily be a connection, but I believe there will be some who look at the murder of the head of the Colorado Prison system yesterday and the horror on the face of the Governor of Colorado as a bit of a warning not to be too cavalier in their approach to gun control and infringements on real or perceived 2nd amendment rights.
You also have Governor Cuomo in New York indicating that their newly adopted gun control laws, barely a couple of months old, are being revised at this time.
There doesn't appear to be an check box for;
EXCELLENT it is about time congress did something right.
The awb was a long shot anyway. But the democrats line in the sand should be on background checks. If that does not pass then I guess this headline will prove true
I never understood the inclusiong of both an assault weapons ban and a magazine size restriction. It always seemed redundant to me. An AR-15 with a 10 or 15 round clip is not an assault weapon by any definition I can think of.
If I had to choose one or the other, I would gladly give up the assault weapons ban, since there won't be assault weapons sold considering the magazie size would preclude any weapons from being assault weapons.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
