    we don't know what might happen this time.

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

    •  Which (0+ / 0-)

      is driving some of these gun sales, I'm sure. I'm sure some are speculative counting on a ban and turning them over for a quick buck.

        the sausage hasn't been made yet.

        I was surprised by a lot of stuff in the ACA I thought wouldn't be there, or would work differently.

          Feinstein said Tuesday members of her staff and rewriting the old bill, which expired in 2004.
           "We ban about 100 weapons by names and we also reduce the physical characteristic test to one," she said. "We grandfather existing weapons."
          This is similar to clip I her of Obama on the radio this morning.

            wonder what that 1 physical characteristic will be?

            That could either ban a whole bunch of weapons that aren't assault weapons, or open the door wide to guns with huge fire power that aren't legal now.

            Hope she has her facts straight.

              I have been advocating we send her a role of duct tape for her mouth.

              She is terrifying my newly minted democratic neighbors who I fear will go fleeing further right than they were before I spent years talking them over.

              This issue is so huge here in the rural northwest I fear the repeal the second crowd will have a very negative impact on the election in two years.

              We were burned very badly by Bill Clinton so trust is a huge issue. We do not trust the government to not treat us as disposable.
