Assault on Truth

In 2 days, these banned guns — including Uzis, AK-47s, and Tec-9s — will be coming back to our neighborhoods, courtesy of President Bush, unless the Assault Weapons Ban is renewed.

I’m really looking forward to buying my fully automatic AK-47 and Uzi on Monday, aren’t you?

However, the assault weapons ban will expire... That means that AK47s and other semi-automatic assault weapons could begin flooding our streets again, as the weapons of choice of gang members, drug dealers and other dangerous criminals.

The 'assault weapons' ban is nothing but an assault on the meaning of words. Nothing epitomizes the blatant dishonesty of liberal gun control advocates than this false issue. No 'assault weapons' will be on the streets after this poorly conceived law expires. Guns with no operational difference from thousands of other semi-automatic weapons will again be legal. This law is all about cosmetic features. Semi-automatic is semi-automatic no matter what a gun looks like. See if you can tell the difference between guns that are banned and guns that are legal.

The anti-gun lobby has set it's sites on the 2nd amendment. Make no mistake, the gun control crowd wants all guns outlawed. They're all 'dangerous' right? They're also banking on the ignorance of the non-gun owning public by saying that Uzi's and AK-47 'assault weapons' will be flooding the streets of America after Monday. This is a blatant lie. AK-47's and Uzi's will still be illegal under the 1934 National Firearms Act banning automatic weapons.

The founding fathers did not write the 2nd amendment frivilously.

"Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins." --Sammy "the Bull" Gravano, mafia hit man and informant, in Vanity Fair, August 1999.
