Unfortunately, I'm aware if that, but I keep hoping it will eventually sink in. I think eternal cynic has it right. Most liberals are willfully ignorant. There is no fixing that. I mean how to you get through to someone that submerges their head, just to avoid hearing the truth?

Why would any sane person not own an anti assault weapon? I personally own several anti assault weapons. My AK47 is very good at preventing an assault on my person.

Who said anyone HAS to own a firearm? You don't want to own one, then don't. There, problem solved. But no where could I find a requirement or mandate to own any type of firearm, unless of course you live in Switzerland or Israel.
Maybe you meant to say "Why does anyone NEED to own an assault weapon."?
It's never the issue of what liberals say, the real quest is their agenda to disarm America to continue their coup.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.

The right to bear arms predates the Bill of Rights; the Second Amendment was based partially on the right to bear arms in English common-law, and was influenced by the English Bill of Rights of 1689. This right was described by Blackstone as an auxiliary right, supporting the natural rights of self-defense, resistance to oppression, and the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the state.

No they're not...they caved...lol

"All but ending chances for an assault weapons ban, Democratic leaders said Tuesday the firearms legislation the Senate will debate next month won't include the provision that gun-control advocates pressed for after an assault-type weapon was used in the Newtown school shootings in December."

"Amend that."

Don't need to when it's put in its proper context.

"Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."

That reference is to short barrelled shotguns as addressed in the Miller case and fully automatic weapons all falling under the NFA laws.

"hahahahahahahahahahaha "

Looking in the mirror again...?

It's the tea bag agenda to make sure all felons have access to firearms.

Funny how over ninety percent of Americans want universal background checks, ten percent of Americans are felons, and all tea baggers are against background checks.

Funny how that is, Dumbo.

Say hello to Au Dumbo...
