Renew The Assault Weapons Ban?

This one is for all you folks who believed Ron Paul was the answer in 2008.

This is for all of you that decided to vote for The Obamination because you were insulted by the choice of Sarah Palin and felt she was just a 'hick' from the sticks of Alaska.

This is for all you young folks that fell for the community organizer's BS!

This is for all you conservatives that couldn't bring yourselves to vote for McCain because he is merely a RINO and not a true Republican.

And, this is for all you lazy ass voters that stayed home and did not support your country!

Thanks a lot!

President Clinton instituted The Assault Weapons Ban, formally known as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, in 1994.

The AWB was an attempt to 'fight crime' by prohibiting the sale to civilians, certain semi-automatic weapons that resembled military style weapons. Prior to this date there was no legal definition for the term 'Assault Weapons'.

Luckily for Americans the ban expired during the Bush Administration!

Now, our new liberal president wants to re-instate the AWB even though he would have us believe he is Pro 2nd Amendment!
Does he really think we're fools?

"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," (Eric) Holder told reporters.

Don't be fooled again!
Obama had planned to do this all the while!

Here's a response from the National Shooting Sports Foundation:

Semi-Automatic Rifle Ban Would Reduce Jobs, Not Crime
Firearms Industry Reminds Congress to Respect Second Amendment Rights

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Responding to Attorney General Eric Holder's comment yesterday that the Obama Administration will attempt to reinstate a ban against semi-automatic rifles, the National Shooting Sports Foundation reminded Congress and all Americans that such a ban would cause jobs to be lost in a difficult economy, have no effect on reducing crime and would deprive millions of law-abiding sportsmen and gun owners of their Constitutional right to own the firearm of their choice.

Holder made his comments in connection with criminals supplying illegal guns from the United States to drug dealers in Mexico.

"The problem of criminals breaking the law to acquire firearms and illegally smuggling them across the border is not remedied by legislation that would violate the rights of Americans to own semi-automatic firearms," said Steve Sanetti, president of NSSF, the trade association of the firearms industry.

"These types of firearms, which are erroneously called 'assault weapons,' are used by millions of Americans for hunting, sporting and personal defense purposes," Sanetti added.

"We can only conclude that certain officials are waiting for any politically advantageous excuse to announce the intention to seek a new ban on sporting rifles, a ban that would break the president's campaign promise to gun owners that 'I'm not going to take away your guns.'"

The industry and firearms owners were understandably outraged by Holder's comments yesterday, and today even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi backed away from the idea of a new gun ban. "On that score, I think we need to enforce the laws we have right now," said Pelosi, surprisingly taking the position of pro-gun advocates.

Holder's use of the inaccurate term "assault weapons" is one that is deliberately used by gun-ban advocates to create confusion between legally sold, semi-automatic rifles and look-a-like, fully automatic military versions.

While the civilian version of these rifles may resemble their military counterparts, the civilian rifle fires only one round with each pull of the trigger.

Additionally, these rifles fire ammunition calibers no more powerful than traditional-looking sporting arms. Civilian access to fully automatic machine guns has been severely restricted since 1934.

Studies show that the ban against sporting firearms, known as the Assault Weapons Ban, that was in place from 1994 to 2004 did not reduce crime.

Furthermore, there has been no increase in crime involving these types of firearms since Congress allowed the ban to expire.

A ban on sporting firearms also would have a severe effect on jobs and the economy.

Sales of semi-automatic rifles have been strong over the last several months -- overall sales of firearms have increased as much as 42 percent -- and have allowed companies in the firearms industry to withstand, to some extent, the downturn in the economy.

"These semi-automatic rifles are the most popular rifle in America today and they are largely behind the recent increase in firearms sales," said Sanetti.

"This is a bright spot in our economy and has helped save jobs in our industry."

Since the election last November gun owners have feared the Obama Administration would seek legislation that would infringe on their Second Amendment rights.

"It appears gun owners' fears were well-founded given Attorney General Holder's comment that the Obama Administration will seek new restrictions on gun owners.

A new gun ban would fly in the face of last year's Supreme Court decision in the Heller case that reaffirmed the Second Amendment right of all Americans to keep and bear arms," said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel.
