"Assault Weapon" Is Just A PR Stunt Meant To Fool The Gullible

Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has announced that she will be introducing legislation to reenact the ban on so-called assault weapons that she authored in 1994. The evidence is in on the effect of her previous assault weapons ban: zero, zilch, nada, as the saying goes. The ban made no perceptible difference in the gun violence statistics when it went into effect, and no perceptible difference when it was allowed to expire 10 years later, in 2003.

That is because the term “assault weapon” is just a PR stunt that fools the gullible and easily deluded. It is defined in legislation by cosmetic features that frighten white bread suburbanites, but do not involve any functionality of any gun. We tried it, conservatives said it wouldn’t work, and it didn’t work. Yet, it is the liberal answer to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn.

The NRA is one gigantic publicity stunt funded by the gun lobby.

God save us from traveling that gun control path one more time! We need to keep on doing what is working best. Educate our youth and our adults. Many kids today have never had a dad to teach them about gun safety and the intelligent enjoyment of firearms. Wisdom does not mean to keep on doing what does not work. Take a liberal along shooting with you, people. He or she may become a new gun enthusiast.
