As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few
gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to
reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,
Worse is his reasoning for it:
"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum"
So he wants to strip us of our constitutional rights to do Mexico a favor. Considering Mexico's military has occasionally gone across our border with arms to protect drug smugglers, I'd say this fits the definition of treason in that he is rendering aid or comfort to our enemies. To say Mexico is our friend is a farce.
Of course, everyone knows the original "assault weapons" ban had no effect on crime. The FBI carefully studied it and found it had no effect. http://articles.latimes.com/2005/jun/28/opinion/oe-lott28 And why would it? Firstly, criminals do not obey such laws. A person intent on murder won't suddenly obey a restriction on guns. Secondly, it affected weapons used in only a very tiny percentage of crimes (simply put, most criminals don't use rifles, they use the more convenient and inexpensive handguns). Thirdly, "assault weapon" is a manufactured term that has no meaning. It is applied by anti-gun lunatics on whatever gun they find "scary" due to looks. Take a Ruger 10/22 and add some sort of folding stock, a long magazine, and suddenly, it's an "assault weapon" even though it is functionally no different than a standard wood-stocked 10/22 "hunting" gun. And let us not forget we must ban those evil bayonet lugs, look at all the driveby bayonettings! This lunacy is simply a chipping away of our rights incrementally. And of course the anti-freedom activists love the fact that it creates hundreds of complex regulations that most people won't even understand, leading perfectly harmless people to become criminals for such silly things as what kind of stock is on a gun or such.
To the filthy scumbag tyrants who wish to enslave us, I say it's time to secede. Rather nicely, several states have proposed bills asserting state sovereignty rights under the 10th Amendment. Not secession, but certainly a step towards that direction. Here is a link discussing it: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=89842
I would much prefer to see this country broken up and have some states remain free, than to see the union hold and all states become cesspools of tyranny. Urge your state representatives and senators to stand up to the federal tyrants.
