There has been a lot of talk and chest thumping concerning the failed implementation of Connecticut’s “assault weapon” and “high-capacity” magazine registration scheme. It seems a significant number of people have ignored the law, and more probably have no idea they were supposed to register their stuff in the first place.
This video has been around for years, and the audio was played by Jim during the first hour of the big radio show this morning. Here it is … the testimony in-front of a Congressional committee from Dr. Susan Gratia-Hupp in 1994 just prior to the implementation of the federal assault weapons ban.
I was traveling when this ABC interview was done with New York Cities Mayor Michael Bloomberg. It’s completely full of fail for the gun control mayor. I’ve referred to his “stupidity” in the headline, but I’m more likely to think he knows exactly what he’s talking about and he’s speaking to the low-information crowd who will take what he says and run with it.
I can not comprehend how stupid these people are. Supposedly when Rep. Gerry Connelly (D-Va.) was visiting with Mexico’s attorney general, he asked what was the one thing the United States could do to help Mexico in their battle against the drug cartels. They wanted the federal assault weapons ban (AWB) brought back of course!
Ignorance. Putting their heads in the sand. Feel good legislation. I’m sick of politicians who cry for more restrictions on firearm ownership by law abiding citizens in the United States. Mexican President Felipe Calderon urged the return of the AWB today, and many in Congress cheered.
