    This won't happen, obviously. And it isn't even like he's saying anything horrible, these are tiny measures mostly.

    It makes too much logical sense for the obstructionist House to pass it.

    You gotta know you're on the wrong side if you ban research.

    Most are good points, someone told me there really isn't a difference between assault and normal weapons though so I don't understand that point.

    "Assault" sounds scary.

    Considering the firearms being sold in the U.S., an assault weapon is a normal weapon.

    So you don't want them changing the laws to be based on something more logical than the gun looks scary?

    Non-detachable magazines.

    Maximum six bullet capacity.

    Load each bullet, one at a time.

    That's law I'd implement.

    Make your gun as scary-looking as you like ... with that restriction.

    (awaits howls of righteous indignation)

    The only word more scary appears to be "research" which the NRA and Republicans have blocked for decades.



    P.s. Is there a real link to Obama's measures rather Fox News quoting the washington beacon?

    It's been shown the morons passing laws have no clue about what they are talking about, so no, there are no more changes needed

    He is asking for 1.1 Billion to find even more creative ways to strip people of their Constitutional Rights?

    I guess it is time to donate even more money to gun rights organizations like the JPFO, SAF and GOA.

    Not to take rights away from people. Its to reduce the number of nut jobs that can legibly obtain a gun. You can still own guns you just have to have a background check and if you aren't doing anything wrong this should not affect you.

    Which ones of those would strip you of your constitutional rights? We do know that there is no such thing as an unlimited right, by the way. Well, most of us do.

    See line item #3.

    The retort from the gun grabbers will be, well we aren't trying to take ALL your guns.

    Until next year or the year after that when they want to ban the next type or model of firearm. Their statements will ring with the same refrain, we aren't trying to take ALL your guns...

    Rinse and repeat.

    This would be your paranoia kicking in. Not fact.

    Pretty much.

    It really has to suck to be that incredibly paranoid. Imagine fearing all day, every day, that something like that was coming up around the corner.

    Not paranoia, fact.

    They have already banned the sale of new fully-automatic rifles and now they are working on semi-automatics.
