Al Gore cast the deciding vote for the Crime Bill back in 1994. No question asked about how would they respond.

Edwards doesn't want to bring up gun control.

He actually didn't want to come back to DC and vote on S 1805.

Gun control is a political dead end right now.

At least until the next publicized lunatic puts it back into the fray.

Yes, it WAS brought up in a roundabout way - Edwards saying that Cheney voted FOR plastic guns.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 5:47:15 PM EST
Wait, you guys didn't catch the "Cheney voted agains the ban on plastic guns" comment?

I was screaming at the TV after that comment.

Edwards looked like an idiot tonight. Then again, that's not particularly difficult to do when you ARE an idiot.

Boy I sure wish a gun could go through security, I would have showed those F'n terrorist some lead. Damn I guess I'd have to get plastice bullets too.

I think he (Edwards) said it in more of a lawyer manner by saying "plastic weapons" Yeah, I gotta get me one of those plastic weapons (i.e. guns)...

I'm glad you posted this, as I stopped watching at 9:00. I was wondering if GC surfaced. There's no way I'm gonna read a 23 page thread on dial up to find out...

plastic guns???? WTF? was he talking about squirt guns? Super soakers? There is no such thing as a plastic gun. That is all Cheney needed to say. Cheney did indeed kick Edwards ass!!.

I only caught the last 30 minutes or so, but after the moderator brought up the topic of "flip-flops," Edwards proceeded to read off a list of supposed Bush flip-flops... but NO MENTION of the AWB.

That surprised me, as I figured they had already written off the gun owners' vote, and would welcome the opportunity to hammer Bush on a subject that is so misunderstood by the public. Then again, perhaps they're saving this for one of the next Bush-Kerry debates, since they probably know Bush will fumble around on the his answer to this kind of question.

Cheney fuckin haused his ass that's why he didn't bring that shite up. Edwards is a trial lawyer and looked it. Cheney was like a hawk up there. He didn't get ruffled and presented the facts one after another. Cheney's record alone was enough to run that guy out of town. He took it to Edwards full court press.

If only Bush will do the same in the next debate. Fuck the niceties. I loved how Cheney thanked the moderator but not Edwards at the end. Heh that was classic. Thank YOU Dick Cheney!

Assume that Edward toes the party line, he against AW, sat nite spls, pocket rockets, 50BMG, & the gun show looop hole. This stuff is spelled out in the planks of the Dem Party.

Yeah, that's what I heard; plastic weapons.
So, what does this mean regarding my Kelly Wordan's Impact Kerambit and my Bulgarian Secret Police Letter Opener? Okay, sure I know they would take them away from anyone found trying to board an airliner with them, but what are the particular Federal Laws?

This is how Edwards responded to Cheney reaming him for his poor attendence record in the Senate:


EDWARDS: That was a complete distortion of my record. I know that won't come as a shock.

The vice president, I'm surprised to hear him talk about records. When he was one of 435 members of the United States House, he was one of 10 to vote against Head Start, one of four to vote against banning plastic weapons that can pass through metal detectors.



Cheney did not respond to the "plastic weapons" remark.
