Of course, and if it's used to assault someone, it's an assault weapon. If it's used to stick someone more than once it's a high capacity assault weapon. If they don't get a scream out, it's a silenced High capacity assault weapon. Somebody stop me, I'm getting hysterical.
And like the drug gangs you cite, if they merge, as Patsfan suggests, they will stop fighting and consolidate their control. I'm begining to believe that it will take a new unabashedly conservative party to steer our nation away from the abyss.

Crystal, As a life member of the NRA, I must agree that the NRA’s response to this tragedy was slow in coming. However, I must point out regarding your understanding of the so called “gun show loophole” is incorrect. This is a term invented by gun control proponents and the left in general, neither of which ever seem to be as much concerned about the truth of what they say as about how it will promote their agenda.

The fact is, there are only two kinds of sales that take place at gun shows, those by licensed gun dealers and those by private gun owners. The majority of these are by the licensed dealers, all of which, regardless of the hysteria generated by the left, do indeed involve background checks. They throw this in to expand the import of what really bothers them, but could not stand on its own two legs. Namely, that the minor part of these sales, those by private parties to other private parties residing in the same State, are treated the same as if I were your neighbor and sold you a gun from my collection that you particularly admired. No background check required. Continued next post

This is the next incremental step for the anti-gunners, stopping private sales at gun shows (which requiring a private party to conduct on another, would surely do). This is not in reaction to any problem that has ever been caused by such, rather it is the stepping stone they see as the next in their quest to ban first all private sales of firearms and then all sales of firearms period. For those who think a background check should be required for private gun sales, I would ask; Why then, not a background check for used car sales, since more criminal deaths take place each year from used cars than guns, not to mention all the accidental deaths from them.

Your comment about Mr. LaPierre reminding maniacs that schools are “gun free zones” is just wrong. The maniacs already know where the “gun free zones” are. I’m sure you don’t think that its just a horrible coincidence that the great bulk of these shootings happen in areas that have been designated as such by our nursemaid government on all levels.
What makes you think that it's not already too late to save the Republican party? Seriously! I'm asking as a Republican precinct committee person. This extends all the way down to the State leadership level and were sick of it!

Hi John, In your answer to Comrade Dick4260, you very aptly mention our Constitution which these leftyloonies want to ignore. But his whole argument seems to be about the lack of restriction on automatic weapons in the US, which actually have been restricted since 1934 and are statisticly null in gun related crimes (except by the Mexican drug cartels).
I speak as grassroots level worker in the Republican Party who started my voting life as a Republican, but left in disgust several years ago to register as an independent for a few election cycles. I came to the conclusion that I was accomplishing nothing by doing so and re-registered as a Republican, becoming active on the precinct level in an effort to help turn the party back to its roots. Now, through four election cycles I feel as though I have accomplished nothing by doing this either. The GOP is not affected by anything that transpires at the precinct level these days, and indeed, like the Democratic party, is now structured primarily to defend the top of the party from those on the precinct level.
We are mere window dressing to help convince the prols that this, now mis-shapen GOP, is still responsive to the more conservative voter. Nothing could be farther from the truth, as we will be seeing more and more if we are not still asleep. The GOP is just as big government, one world system Spend every penny we have and more, as the Democrats whom they pretend to oppose. Already the GOP is falling back to their preferred position on the Bush tax cuts. They will now pretend to have been outmaneuvered by the white house and accepting the left’s characterization that the situation calls for NO reinstatement of the cuts for people who make jobs, versus no tax cuts for anyone
They will be complicit in pushing this skewed view of the choices upon the American People, knowing all the time that it is the Job of the Republican controlled House to pass revenue Bills. If you think you’ve seen a lot of Kabuki Theater from the Republicans now, just wait till they try to pacify the ranks with all the cave-ins they have planned for the next few years.
