The affront to tens of millions of gun owners who have never and never will harm anyone is exactly the kind of tyranny, the sort of unwarranted intrusion into our lives, that Founding Fathers despised. They wanted the citizens, the common folk, we who comprise the militia, to be as well armed in our personal firearms as military people or other government types who might take it upon themselves to impose their will on good Americans who have done no one harm. The full-auto mechanism that is essential for a rifle to maybe be an assault rifle has been illeagl in the US since 1934. These other laws are utter bullscheisse just to impose controls for the sake of control.

Former President Bill Clinton, who suffered significant political damage after signing into law the original assault weapons ban, is cautioning President Obama against patronizing his gun control opponents, in particular gun owners.

Appearing before Obama's National Finance Committee and various business leaders, Clinton stressed that guns present different cultural complexities than other political issues.

"Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them," he said, according to Politico.

Clinton's words are wise, but it may be too late. The Obama campaign team has already
