[url]http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/771717/posts[/url] In 1991, after George Hennard shot 22 people to death at a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, Sarah Brady said the mass murder showed the need for a federal ban on "assault weapons." Brady, the head of Handgun Control Inc., wrote an op-ed piece in which she asked, "Is it going to take a massacre in every congressional district for enough members to find the backbone to put public safety ahead of the profits of the assault weapon lobby?" It was an odd connection to make, since the pistols Hennard had used, a Glock 17 and a Ruger P89, were not covered by the legislation Brady was demanding. A decade later, she and her organization, now called the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, are still trying to pass off non sequiturs as common sense.

This is profound. It is too bad Americans have so little common sense or education to understand the principles of logic. [:(]

There are 30 million of us, and just about 1000 politicians. I think we would be able to remove them, before they got their henchmen to remove us.

What's worse is the complete lunacy of ballistic fingerprinting of any AR15 type modular weapons system, which can be %100 defeated in under 10 seconds by swaping uppers.

Or most (semi-)auto handguns, where it takes about the same time to simply swap barrels.

SHHHHH!!!! Your going to give them their next best reason why this weapon will fall under the "Common Sense Gun Laws" category! I can just see it now. The arguement against that would be of course that other weapons have similar systems and even bolt action rifles could swap but it "would take longer". Laws like the 10 bullet limit and no evil accessories is a great example of this kind of fuzzy, uneducational logic that will eventualy win over the hearts of the sheeple.

Judging by the level of professionalism and competency that those in charge of firearm legislation, regulation and enforcement have exhibited over the past three decades, I have little fear of any actual productive benefits occurring as a result of a national database. I would agree, however, that we're all in deep do-do if (somehow, some way) they learn how to use those newfangled Post It Note thingies.

AR15.com is a National Gun Database ...(I'm just here to write a report on "Gun Freaks" for school) Seriously though ...your guns are registered whether YOU know it or not.

I wonder if the feds would take the time to write down what guns we claim to have when we post here... OK mr. federal agent, if you are listening, I am just an aging overweight wannabe whos disability money from the job at the lumberyard has ruled out the pssibility of buying my own weapons. I read a lot about guns, and I claim to own things I dont own. So dont bother putting my name on the list, cuz i dont really have guns. PS, does my old BB gun count?
