Last month, 65 House Democrats said they would block any attempt to resurrect an expired federal ban against assault weapons. The pro-gun Democrats, led by Rep. Mike Ross of Arkansas, wrote Attorney General Eric Holder saying they opposed not only a ban on military-style guns, but also efforts "to pass any similar law." Despite eight rampages that have claimed 57 lives since March 10, "it hasn't sparked any national goal to deal with this epidemic. In fact, it's going the other way," said Scott Vogel of the Freedom States Alliance, a gun control activist group.
I mean, of course, it's not that people who want to own guns are getting them for anything other than target practice or hunting for their food, right? I mean, nobody would kill animals for fun, right? Or kill to express their political views, right? I mean, that's what inbred, xenophobic, homophobic hate mongers and terrorists do, right, not ordinary citizens who just love shooting at cans on tree stumps. RIGHT?! Don't you want to buy an automatic assault weapon, so you can blissfully blow a tin can to hell?! I mean, you don't harbor any murderous fantasies that you'd like to act out, do you?
"FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS?!!?"
