Obama comes out for an assault weapons ban
It’s a good speech. To a liberal who is ignorant about firearms it probably sounds moderate. It isn’t. “AK’s belong on battlefields and not on the streets of our cities.” He is calling for a new “Assault Weapons” ban. We don’t have full auto AKs sold to regular citizens, so he can’t claim he was talking about them. He’s flat-out saying we should ban private ownership of semi-auto box fed rifles that some people find scary looking.
This is arrogant AND stupid. He’s stupid enough that he doesn’t think we will know what he’s saying and he’s arrogant enough to believe that we’ll go along with it.
UPDATE: Now is the time to start calling your candidates, both for State and Federal office, and asking them a simple question. Do they support or oppose the Obama Assault Weapons Ban? Yes or no answers only, please.
