Hmmmm.....before you vote for Bush, read this! Bush has let the assault weapons ban to expire! No thanks to Bush there will be more assault weapons on the streets. Eric was right, he said Kerry only wanted to ban on assault weapons not on rifles, etc. Do you really want to re-elect this man who just made the terrorists' jobs easier and allowing North Korea to roam freely to develop nuclear weapons? Bush frightens me!

Laws like this wouldn't affect the criminal at all. A criminal wants a gun, no matter what type, he's going to get it -- and it's not going to be through legal channels. So why put more BS in the path of the legal buyer, who by the very act of willingly going through the red tape necessary to buy a weapon legallly, shows that he's not a criminal?

Or are you one of these anti-gun whackos who wants to eliminate all guns? Remember, no guns were involved in 9/11 -- the terrorists used box cutters. Want to make some laws to control the sale and purchase of box cutters too?

Sorry to break your heart but i am a gun owner... I have a hunting rifle (its collecting dust but one day I will get interested in hunting again). AnnB AND txshowmom are both right. TXshowmom made a point that if there is a ban on assault rifles, only registered guns are available. BUT AnnB is right too..criminal are willing to do anything to get a gun, even if it risk their lives...they will smuggle guns from Mexico (one of the reason why we need more restrictions on our southern border but noooooooo....Bush wants to keep it as light as possible.. why don't he install lights so the immigrants can see at night while crossing the border....come on over buddy move into the White House with me....don't worry if you got drugs or guns..you are safe with me and Laura!). You will change your views once someone comes into your house and shoot your children with an assault weapon.......

An armed man is a citizen unarmed a subject.
Born free and I will die free.
Freedom comes at a cost.
Two things you must do to have a communistic or socialist state.
1 Disarm the people
2.Control religous freedom

Let's see, an assualt weapon has a folding stock, a pistol grip a magazine that accepts more then 10 rounds, a flash suppressor a bayonet lug, or a combination of those.
What there seperates them from a mini-14, ruger 10-22, M1 Carbine, M1 Garand? Other then the lack of ability of the Garand to be increased to a capability to use more then 10 rounds, you can equip any firearm to have those physical properties. Which of those make it an assault weapon? They may be ugly, (in my eyes), but they're no real digfference between them and a Remington semi-auto rifle that is considered a deer rifle.
It may be trite, but the 2nd amendment isn;t about duck (deer/squirrel/etc.) hunting!

I don't particularly care for assault weapons because I don't see a purpose for them. My husband informs me that a lot of people shoot them as a hobby, (well all righty then), but just because I don't care for them dosn't mean we shouldn't have them. We have a right to bear arms, PERIOD. It don't say we have a right to bear arms but only ones that the democrats like.

Unless it has changed recently Switzerland has the lowest crime rate in the world and also the highest percentage of armed citizens.

If this country were ever to be invaded,and I believe no other country would try that based simply on the fact that the average American has a whole lot of firepower in his home,do you think they would stand much of a chance? I know I personally have enough guns and ammo to hold them off for several days! It is a proven fact that when guns are banned crime rises. With perhaps the exception of England. But what do you expect from people that have high tea & crumpets. :lol:

You Texans are a bunch of radical militant wackos. I wish we could sell you to Mexico and buy some of Canada, then we could move those Canadians to some of our Indian reservations. While there they could teach the Indians how to farm and ranch, well farm anyways, Canadians and ranching just don't belong in the same sentence any more. Since they want to have their hand in our export kitty we might as well just take over their entire ag industry and collect taxes on it so we can afford to fight every dictatorship in the whole world. This sounds like a good platform basis for your boy Zell Miller to run on in 2008.

Actually when the first white man came to USA, one of the first thing they done was pressured the Indians (some did comply, some didn't but they got shoved down their throat to farm!). When the Hudson Bay Company first sent their trappers and traders to the West. they built a fort near present day Walla Walla, WA (Fort Walla Walla). After the first season, the traders at the fort planted a small garden.... When the Nez Perces and Flatheads first seen this they were in complete shock! The idea of turning over dirt and use it to grow things was beyond their wildest dreams. Many tribes in the West wanted to learn farming....... AS they were picking up skills, the AMERICANS moved in and told the Indians "to beat it....get off "our" land". My point is the Canadians has shoved farming and ranching on the Indians already...
