74. Folks just don't get..
... how much the Scary Looking Gun Ban :) (Assault Weapons Ban) pissed off the gun rights community. It is as arbitrary a law as has ever been passed, using a ridiculous scoring system to decide what constitutes an "assault weapon" and leaving enough ambiguity to make it hard to really be sure you are following the law.

No ban in the world has ever kept a criminal from having a weapon. "Assault weapons" are no more deadly than any number of other easily obtainablefirearms.

The gun issue is a total loser for the Dems. I'm for abandoning it, not because I am a whore willing to compromise my core beliefs for political expediency, but because AMERICANs BELIEVE IN GUN RIGHTS AND SO DO I.
