Dems And guns

Well as I predicted, it came sooner rather than later. Less than two months into the new Democrat Congress they have introduced H.R 1022, "Assault Weapons Ban". It is the Clinton weapon ban redone, with ADDITIONAL restrictions. We must learn that the Democrat party will NEVER be friendly to private ownership of firearms, no matter WHAT they say, or don't say, during elections. They are not afraid of the voters on this issue, and they remember it was never repealed by the Republican Congress, (they WERE afraid of the voters on this issue). Don't count on "W" having the stomach to veto this. Perhaps the Senate might stop it but I will believe that when it happens.

Seems the Republicans haven't been all THAT friendly to us either. If you like what the Democrats are doing, elect Guiliani or Romney.

Actually the Republican party is friendly to us on this issue, both on the State and Federal level. It is individual Republicans that let us down. I was wrong when I said they had not repealed it in that the House under Newt did in fact repeal it, but the Senate under Dole refused to take it up. It was all for show anyway on the part of Newt. He knew the Senate wouldn't take it up and if they had, Clinton would have vetoed it. I will give him credit though for giving it an up or down vote in the house, just as he promised he would. However, once they had a Republican President to deal with they never brought it up again.
