"considers any gun an assault weapon"
a slight exaggeration I'm sure.
think about it and dont underestimate them.

According to a December 27th posting on her website and a draft bill obtained by the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, the legislation would define “assault weapons” to comprise a much larger variety of firearms than ever before, require current owners of those included to register them with the Federal Government noting locations, impose a $200 tax per firearm, prohibit their transfer to other people, and require that those weapons be forfeited and destroyed upon the owners’ deaths.

providing and watching are hardly the same thing, are they? The vast majority of conservatives don't need the government to provide for them, they are self sufficient.
not todays Conservatives which are most former modern liberals of FDR which are classified as Neo Cons.

Neo Conservatives in American politics is someone presented as a conservative but who actually favors big government, interventionalism, and a hostility to religion in politics and government. The word means "newly conservative," and thus formerly liberal. A neocon is a type of RINO, and like RINOs does not accept most of the important principles in the Republican Party platform.

Many older neocons had been liberals in their youth and admired President Franklin D. Roosevelt, while younger neocons are more economically conservative than Roosevelt but like to downplay the social issues. In 2010 the highest priority of the neoconservatives was to increase military action by the United States in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and to expand it to an American confrontation against Iran; in 2011 their goals include supporting a military attack on Libya, continuing the Afghanistan War indefinitely, and even suggesting military action against Syria. There is a revolving door between some neocons and highly paid positions in the defense industry, which may explain the constant neoconservative demands for more wars.


Neoconservatives were prominent in the George W. Bush administration by supporting an interventionist domestic policy they called 'compassionate conservatism' and a strong foreign policy, and especially favored the Iraq War and its efforts to spread democracy worldwide.

Way too radical, doesn't have a chance of becoming law. Not even in weirdo land California.
I believe your right because of the 2010 SCOTUS ruling of Mcdonald Vs Chicago.

McDonald v. Chicago

McDonald v. Chicago, 561 US 3025 (2010), is a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States that determined whether the Second Amendment applies to the individual states. The Court held that the right of an individual to "keep and bear arms" protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states. The decision cleared up the uncertainty left in the wake of District of Columbia v. Heller as to the scope of gun rights in regard to the states.

Initially the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit had upheld a Chicago ordinance banning the possession of handguns as well as other gun regulations affecting rifles and shotguns, citing United States v. Cruikshank, Presser v. Illinois, and Miller v. Texas. The petition for certiorari was filed by Alan Gura, the attorney who had successfully argued Heller, and Chicago-area attorney David G. Sigale. The Second Amendment Foundation and the Illinois State Rifle Association sponsored the litigation on behalf of several Chicago residents, including retiree Otis McDonald.

The oral arguments took place on March 2, 2010. On June 28, 2010, the Supreme Court, in a 5–4 decision, reversed the Seventh Circuit's decision, holding that the Second Amendment was incorporated under the Fourteenth Amendment thus protecting those rights from infringement by local governments. It then remanded the case back to Seventh Circuit to resolve conflicts between certain Chicago gun restrictions and the Second Amendment.

Grieving mothers cost Russia plus the financial costs bankrupt Russia costing them the war in Afghanistan similar to our war in Southeast Asia. Uncle Sam has ordered me twice once with bandaged index finger to help. Nothing was said about stubborn politicians or threats to my well being. I know I missed getting Bin Laden and President Obama and Seal Team Six accomplished that. What do I say to Uncle Sam and old U.S. Gov Lion with no teeth. I am no paper tiger. I just want AlQaeda's hide for the United States and other countries victimized by AlQaeda. E-mail Uncle Sam.com for any complaints. Safer World 2013

Who is demanding new wars? Obama?
plenty of the them on here thats like saying you cant find any liberals on here classical that is you cant find.

Classical liberalism is a political ideology, a branch of liberalism which advocates civil liberties and political freedom with limited government under the rule of law and generally promotes a laissez-faire economic policy.

Commander-in-Chief as strange as it sounds AlQaeda seems to want a fight with me and I will give them one. Other countries have been attacked and they know I love the United States of America and they attacked here. Message was it's all about you so I have no choice but to fight. They picked the wrong person to bully. I would be honored to serve you if I have to be a mercenary. I would have joined French Freedom Fighters but Uncle Sam motioned for me. I figured you would enjoy rounding up a possee for the Badlands. Bush said one thing that stuck out hate and anger never solved anything. I have good references ask William Jefferson Clinton.
