One McCarthy wanted to burn out all the commies. This time we got one who wants to burn all the guns. Go figure. http://www.consumerfed.org/050903assaultban.html As a newb, I know this is a controversial topic. But I think everyone should know who is supporting this bill. I apologize if this wasn't posted in the right place. [newbie] By the way, this forum rocks!!!!!

BTW- I love the mention of assault weapons being the choice of cop killers, with one in five being killed by assault weapons. #1, wasn't it the FBI statistics that they were involved in less than 1% of crimes. #2, I believe their definition of assault weapon is pretty broad to include mini-14s and the like. #3 of course a higher ratio would be killed by rifles because handguns really aren't that deadly compared to rifles. I think all gunshots average to an 18% mortality rate. Lastly, if it was the weapon of choice, wouldn't it be involved in more than 20% of the killings. I think that by defenition makes it not the weapon of choice. Oh well, there is no victory when arguing with the irrational.

Just who does this Consumer Federation of America represent? I consume things, they don't represent me. When I clicked on "about CFA" that page could not be found. A VPC shell group? Maybe Sarah Brady would have had no objections if JH Jr. beat the piss out of her husband with a (non-corked) Louisville Slugger. TS BTW, BigJuice, come visit [url]www.pre-ban.com[/url] some time.
