84. And another gratuitous kick for Gutless George....
Edited on Sun Sep-12-04 08:11 AM by MrBenchley
"At the stroke of midnight Monday, TEC-9s and AK-47s will be blue-light specials in the nation's gun shops -- and it will be but a matter of time before fresh blood spills on America's streets. The 1993 massacre at 101 California Street in San Francisco may be dj vu all over again.
Military-style semiautomatic weapons are splendid killing machines. The federal government has no business making it any easier for terrorists and wackos to get hold of them. And yet Congress and the president are about to let the 10-year ban on assault weapons expire.
The end of the ban is a triumph of cynicism over courage. No, President Bush didn't flip-flop on assault weapons. But he's been shamelessly two-faced.
Running for president in 2000, Bush said he'd support extending the ban if it reached his desk. But the president who shoved tax cuts through Congress with both hands hasn't lifted a finger for the gun ban. Republican House leaders, with a wink and a nod, sat on the bill."
