Neat, now I know which ideological umbrella I fall under. Idiocy. Anyway, I was trying to bring the topic back to guns. Let me try again.
I don't really see the need for citizens to have access to automatic weapons. If there were any possibility that the American people might mobilize to veto the government, I'd say hell no don't ban our AKs. But I can't see them ever getting off their asses to do that.
Yeah, serves me right for my only research being a half-listen to the radio on the subject. I apologize. Next time I'll make sure I know what we're talking about.
Edit: ok, I wrongly equated "assault" with "automatic". Shows what I know. I will just be quiet and stick to my revolvers.
The difference between you and politicians is that you (A) give a **** if you're right or wrong and (B) will admit it instead of digging in come hell or high water.
So am I safe in my assumption that either A:Boehner won't let an "assault" weapons ban make it to the Senate floor or B:If it does it'll get voted down. Hoping it won't make it out of the House but you never know...
Whatever makes it through the Senate will end up in the Republican controlled House, where it will most likely disappear like a fart in the wind.
