There's no bill before the House which would "take away the 2nd Amendment RIGHTS," doofus.
And assault weapons should be BANNED FOREVER and CONFISCATED.
This kind of talk out of both sides of the mouth is why there will never be any meaningful gun control legislation.

First of all, the average gun owner does not own an "assault weapon-being that an "assault" weapon is classified as a military style weapon with the capacity of being operated on fully automatic.

Secondly, the states of Connecticut and Massachusetts both have the toughest gun control laws in the United States. How then did the two Chechen bombers of the Boston Marathon get their hands on guns which were used in killing a police officer near MIT?

Lastly, you say you have never voted against the US Constitution, yet you advocate the "confiscation" of banned weapons. If they are banned, and all of us good citizens obey the law, there will be nothing to "confiscate". But you, "doofus", want to rip out an Amendment to that Constitution you say doesn't exist in any House bill now being considered.

Smoke and mirrors doesn't enhance idiocy.

Thanks for pointing out your EXTREME bias, ignorance, and extremism.
PBS and NPR are some of the most unbiased news sources out there. The mainstream media are mostly corporate, interested in selling advertising.
Faux News leans FAR Right and is usually dishonest.
You are a putz.
If PBS and NPR are so great they shou7ldn't need welfare to operate.

There is no such thing as "the liberal platform." There is no such thing as "the marxist media." And the pig with the lipstick used to be governor of Alaska, remember? You voted for her and thus proved your own laughable ignorance.:)

..EDITED....
Nothing I said was "out of both sides of the mouth." I stated what the legislation before Congress was, and what MY opinion was - two different things. You apparently couldn't figure that out.

In common usage, "assault weapons" are military-style semi-automatic rifles. I'm tired of explaining this to lying gun nuts, BTW.

We must rely on them, since no armed citizens were able to stop the two bombers from blowing up people at the race, right?

Or apprehend or kill the bad guys?

Or do much of anything?

This is the job we HIRE cops and the FBI for....to take changes, track down bad guys, bring them to justice. Guess that's something new to you, or is Alzheimer's getting the better of you?

The term assault rifle is a military one borrowed by lib media and politicians to demonize a category of weapons they fear. The big question is WHY do they fear them? Reasonable sane people are more scared of pistols and shotguns. Pistols are easier to carry/conceal and shotguns can do some real damage you don't walk away from.

They don't get "welfare," idiot. "Welfare" is what you call government aid to everyone except rich people and corporations.

That's a lie, of course. Gun companies and magazines began calling them that back in the '80s or '90s, it made gun nuts feel all macho to have an "assault weapon" instead of a .223 with a plain ol' wooden stock.

ALL guns should be feared when in the hands of criminals and crazies. You're not a reasonale OR sane person, which is why you say such ridiculous things.

LOL...that's your answer? Seriously?

They've got two men down in pursuit of these dangerous criminals, have killed one and have the other on the run, what do you want?

Ordinary citizens with a .38 in their back pocket couldn't catch a rabbit, much less a couple of dangerous terrorists.

Do you think that average, armed citizens are more effective than cops and FBI? Yes or no??

Guns shouldn't be feared, criminals and crazies should be. Why is this blithering administration assisting states in cutting mental health services? Do they want another sandy Hook to fuel their gun control attempts? mmmmmmm Looks like the Boston Marathon bombers were immigrants, helps fuel the gubmint's immigration reform.
