There is such a thing as a reasonable restriction on a Constitutional right, but any law against so-called assault weapons is far from reasonable. This campaign is nothing but a pack of lies sold by demagogues; the current version of an attack made by the same people time and again. Patriots have made too many concessions already, and none of them ever satisfy anti-gun bigots; every concession is like throwing meat to dogs. They are already imposing illegal gun control on this nation and they have already gotten blood on their hands, and they still want more. Gun control does not and will not reduce violence. Those who promote it are bigots; those who accept it are sheep.

Reasonable restrictions on constitutional rights must be very narrowly focused and cause a minimal impact on the right itself in order to accomplish the intended consequence. Nothing that the left has proposed in their recent "conversations" on gun control fit that model. They are too broadly focused, they will have a big impact on our rights, and they won't accomplish the arrive at the intended consequence. NO! No ban on semi automatics. No ban on magazines. No universal gun registration!

Oops. They won't accomplish or arrive at the intended consequences (reduction in violent crimes or mass shootings).

What is really annoying is the duplication of proposed bills to laws already on the books. I counted at least 4 of the proposed bills which are doppelgangers to current laws.

Joe Biden has already let you know that a shotgun will fill all your self-defense needs. Now, he's back with another home protection tip: this time, on how to use your twelve gauge when someone is trying to rob you blind and/or harm your family! In an interview with Field & Stream magazine, Biden dropped this little nugget of wisdom on how to deter home invaders. (Disclaimer: don't try this at home.)

F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?

V.P. BIDEN: Well, the way in which we measure it is--I think most scholars...
