A Klinton Kronicles chapter re-wrtten

I know this has been blogged to death and there is probably nothing here for those already in the know.

The definition

Firearms that are perceived to be "assault weapons" are for the most part gas operated and semi-automatic. To the un-initiated that definition also describes a rather large number of shotguns and rifles found in duck blinds and deer stands all over America. Hunters wake up I'm talking about your "Elmer Fudd gun".

The AWB is about to sunset.

First off lets get one thing straight; the so-called Assault Wepons Ban (AWB) did not ban anything of the sort. What it did was make certain "bolt-on" or "add-on" features against the law. The basic firearm that the anti's cringe and lose sleep over is still sold by large numbers everyday.

That is like saying we are banning fast cars by passing a law that says any Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette and ____ (you fill in the blank) manufactured after 1994 cannot have a hood scoop, rear deck spoiler or a gas tank that holds more than 10 gallons.

They never left

It may come as a suprise to some, but almost every quality firearm that was available before the ban is still available from a licensed dealer today (10 years later and the ban is still in place). Ak-47's, AR-15's and SKS's are still being sold.

Why because they were NOT banned. (humor on) No you can't put a hood scoop, rear deck spoiler and a 20 gallon gas tank on them but they are still the same gun that is still (after 10 yrs) being sold everyday in gunshops and at gunshows all over the country. (humor off)

Have you got that? That is all that silly nonsense of a law did. Which is precisely nothing, except make the sybolism over substance crowd "feel good" about doing something.

The human factor

Secondly there is no such thing as an Assault Weapon. Assault is a human action.
Listen closely all you Brady-Bunchers and Million Commie Mommies out there: An inanimate object cannot perform human functions. You cannot ascribe human actions to a chunk of steel/plastic and wood.

The only thing a firearm can do by itsself is RUST. That is not harmful to anyone that keeps up on their tetnis boosters.

Twisted logic exposed

If we ascribe to the anti-gun logic that there is such a thing as an assault weapon then, knives, hammers, screwdrivers, armchairs and automobiles would have to be included as they have all been documented to have been used in assaults.

Wasted tax dollars

So why shouldn't it sunset, it never did anything anyway, studies by both the CDC and the NIJ concluded that it di nothing to reduce crime. It is a waste of taxpayers money to have a law on the books that does not work.

Reduced Crime

Yes crime has gone down in the last 10 years and a lot of other factors are responsible for that. The number of Peace Officers on the streets is greater, crime fighting technology has increased a thousand fold and (Commie Mommies and Brady bunchers hold your ears) a alrge number of states have passed concealed carry laws.

I can hear your wailing and knashing of the teeth now, but that is the truth. And concealed carry has made you safer whether you want to admit it or not. The logic is simple and spoken to by the criminals themselves. They want easy, un-armed and defenseless targets, in states where CCW is legal crime has dropped because the thugs can no longer be assured that they intended target is un-armed and defenseless.

Do you understand that? Rapists, robbers and murders are no longer sure that they have easy prey and you will never know if one of these types passed on committing a crime against you, because he/she could not determine whether you were armed or not.

Are you alive today because..?

It could very well be that the CCW law in your state saved you from a vicious, robbery rape and or beating and you don't even know it.
