You are about as brainwashed and ignorant as any Liberal I have ever seen!<quoted text>I disagree. More gun bands have came from Repubs than from Dems. The Brady Bill could have been stopped at any point in time by Republicans. The NRA didn't push the vote either way because at the time their President of the NRA said he agreed with 65% of the Bill.
It was President George Bush, Sr. who banned the import of "assault weapons" in 1989.
It was Governor Ronald Reagan of California who signed the Mulford Act in 1967, "prohibiting the carrying of firearms on one's person or in a vehicle, in any public place or on any public street.
Lets talk about Dem ideas about "GUNS":
The most common argument of the Democratic Party against firearm ownership is the mention of the militia in the Second Amendment, the Amendment to the Constitution covering firearms. However, they conveniently forget to notice something else about the Second Amendment. Does it say, "... the right of the Militia to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"? No, obviously it doesn't. It says, "... the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." This is vitally important and it clearly states that the people have the right to keep and bear arms.
An interesting recent legacy of the Democratic Party has been to label certain guns more dangerous purely based upon looks. This is a stupid idea if I've ever heard one, and I've heard plenty. The Assault Weapons Ban essentially banned a few cosmetic things on firearms instead of actually changing a firearm's effectiveness. Effectiveness is based on a myriad of factors, and in the firearms world "nothing is a free lunch". Even the supposedly more dangerous fully automatic fire that is usually the first thing mentioned in a news report (even if it wasn't a fully automatic gun) actually has the very serious drawback that it vastly reduces your ability to hit anything. Take, for example, the infamous North Hollywood Shootout--the culprits fired some 1,000 rounds of ammunition while actually scoring very few hits.
Also, there is a lot of outcry from the Democratic Party for firearms safety (like they really care about gun owners!). They demand intricate mechanical safeties and wingdings that in the end accomplish nothing. There is no way to put true firearms safety better than this: Firearms safety is between the shooter's ears.
In the end, virtually all of the anti-gun arguments are invalid in one way or another. The main reason why Democrats don't take a look at the facts is because, more than anything else, they don't want to. But don't worry, all political parties do that.
I'll let the reader continue reading further on this one, but keep in mind that we're all human beings. There are only a relatively few in the entire world who can genuinely be described as evil, but there are a heck of a lot of the "misguided."
