Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban
 
The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004

"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," Holder told reporters.

OH yeah - it's on.

"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller" Holder told reporters.

First Bill that hits the floor of the House, it will hit the fan.

dang, someone beat me to this...

oh well, here it goes:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

You will not destroy MY Bill of Rights without a fight. And people wonder why there were "Obama" Gun sales since November all over the south. Geesh. What's next, going to suspend Freedom of Speech for those who don't agree with the Federal Government?

The Second Amendment, Protects the First. If you take away the 2nd, you can easily change the 1st.

But what do I know, I live in the Ozarks, where its cool to be Kin.

But really, assault weapons? I mean, I support the second amendment as much as anyone here, but I don’t think the forefathers had the AK-47 in mind when they drafted that verbiage. Seriously, who needs those types of weapons and what good have they ever been used for in everyday life? I can understand rifles (for sportsmanship and hunting) handguns (for protection) but it does get ridiculous…

They are used for crimes, period.

Define "assault weapon".

Democrats rely on the ignorance of the people to not know the difference between a fully automatic assault rifle and an "assault weapon" (a made-up term meaning "the gun looks mean").

I'm not for people carrying around AK-47's myself either, but the only constitutional reason I could see them being legal is because these are the types of weapons the military is issued.

When the framers of this country wrote the second amendment, they had in mind that every militia and citizen had the right to be armed as the national army would be armed, that way they would be capable of defending themselves from an unjust government, if it ever came to that.

In that case, I want a Hummer with a 50 cal mounted and a couple of Patriot missles!!! :laughing:
