96. This is extremely stupid and disappointing - The old AW ban was a complete failure
Edited on Thu Feb-26-09 09:43 AM by slackmaster
It did nothing to improve public safety.

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

Pandering to Mexican authorities who have an internal crime problem is not a sound basis for US internal policy. Let Mexico clean its own house.

PREDICTION: There will be more firearms sold to US civilians in 2009 than in any previous year.
