Bush should renew assault weapons ban

The Daily Herald


From the Washington Post
Sept. 9, 2004

As the president and Congress look the other way, America is about to suffer a fresh onslaught of menacingly efficient deadly weapons across the homeland. At midnight Monday -- barring a sudden change of heart on the Hill -- the any-model-goes marketing of military assault-style weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines can resume as a 10-year ban on certain firearms expires. So much for the past efforts of four presidents -- Ford, Carter, Reagan and Clinton -- to rid the landscape of at least some of the weapons that have no place in a civilized society.

President Bush -- who said during the 2000 campaign that he favored a prohibition -- has yet to lift a finger for it. White House spokeswoman Clare Buchan has said that Mr. Bush "supports the reauthorization of the current assault weapons ban," adding that "the president's views are well known" among GOP leaders in Congress. Just as well known is that those Republican leaders won't act unless specifically prodded by the president, and that hasn't happened.

Police officers whose lives are at risk on the streets have repeatedly pointed out that assault weapons are not useful in hunting or sport. But to be far more effective, the ban should be changed to include a prohibition on knock-off models that have been sold to circumvent the law, which is limited to 19 types of semiautomatic weapons.

No sporting shooter needs to own these weapons, no criminal should find them so easily on the market. To stand by and allow a flood of assault weapons into the wrong hands makes no sense. Instead of drying up the supply, manufacturers will be given the official go-ahead to increase the gross domestic arsenal. Why won't the president act?

This story appeared in The Daily Herald on page A6.



Now that the Ban is over they finally post a friendly article. They may be fairly balanced but from what I've seen in the last few years they have leaned left. Maybe to just get the highly conservative population in this area upset?
