No. Just because some crazy people shot some other people with so-called assault rifles last year, and the media had a lot of fun exploiting those tragedies, that doesn't mean that ALL assault rifles should be outlawed. When crazy people stab other people with knives, why don't we see whiny liberals getting outraged, and Piers Morgan crying on his show, saying "Something has to be done. Let's outlaw all knives. England is so safe. Blah. Blah Blah"? Liberals are all for standing up for people's "rights" when it's the rights that matter to THEM. Hypocrites.
And for the record, I don't even own a gun, but I support legal gun owners' rights.

I agree with you. I'm a democrat, and I'm pro gun rights. I think that sane adults who pass background checks should have a right to own a gun if they think that they may need it for self defense, and no one should try to take that right away from them. This is America. We supposed to have freedom and rights here, at least that's what I was taught growing up.
