"Attorney General John Ashcroft has reversed a Clinton administration policy on the Second Amendment, saying the Justice Department has "reaffirmed a long-held opinion" that all law-abiding citizens have the individual right to keep and bear firearms." It's a start.

At one point, former Rep. Mike Barnes, head of Handgun Control Inc., charged that Mr. Ashcroft shared the "same extremist theory on the Second Amendment subscribed to by Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and so-called militia groups." Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, laid into the former Missouri senator´s strong support of the Second Amendment, demanding that he "apologize" to the American people.

The prevalence of political scum in this country is beyond belief.

Like I said in the other thread: Hmmmm... [url]www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,25447,00.html[/url] "During his confirmation, Ashcroft said he supported the right to bear arms for citizens but added, ``I don't believe the Second Amendment to be one that forbids any regulation of guns.'' He said he supports child safety locks and a ban on assault weapons." If he supports a ban on assault weapons, then he does not support the second amendment. He's a POS. Friend, eh? Beware of Republicans bearing gifts.

Let's see Kennedy is a poster child for morality? Drinking, driving drunk, killing a woman. His bodyguards were caught carrying illegal machine guns? Cheating on his wife, he is such a good example for the country.

"That responsibility applies to all parts of the Constitution, including the Second Amendment," he said. A glimer of hope is better than the hope Gwhore would have left at the door.

Justice Department officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the department does not plan to make additional arguments in the case, which is pending before a three-judge appellate panel. Government lawyers would look at the panel's ruling before deciding whether to appeal to the Supreme Court, officials said, adding that [b][red][size=5]Ashcroft thinks the 1994 law is a reasonable restraint on Second Amendment rights.[/size=5][/red][/b]
