Everyone needs to look back at our history and learn it will repeat itself. because very few people learn from it what did george washington say about guns? what did teddy roosevelt say about guns? We can't blame homisides on the guns just dumb people. We as americans have some of the lowest homiside rate in the world. ask convicts the robbed homes why they did not rob more houses and they will tell you because they were afraid of being shot. My 8 year and 6 year old each know how to handle a gun and shoot it and know that they are not to use it with out my permission. and for the last 8 almost 9 years they have done great but if you hide them from them they will find them and that is when bad things can happen.

The New Year is just around the corner and although the Senate still hasn't made a fiscal cliff deal, Senator Diane Feinstein already has parts of new gun control legislation ready to go. Two Sunday's ago on NBC's Meet the Press, Feinstein talked about giving President Obama a bill he can "lead on" and used the term assault weapon loosely.

Feinstein has posted a summary of what the legislation will cover, which inculdes a ban on semi-automatic handguns and shotguns in addition to rifles. The legislation also requires registration...
