I need a flash suppresser on my rifle so when I shoot at police, they have no idea where the hell the shots are coming from.<br>I need a pistol grip on my rifle so I can more accurately shoot police when I'm on the move.<br>I need a thirty round clip on my rifle so I can shoot more cops without reloading.<br>I need to buy my guns at a gun show because I have a record for shooting lots of cops.<br><br>Of course there are plenty of great arguments to help me kill cops. The NRA says the law only addressed "cosmetic" attributes of guns. I guess a flash suppresser is pretty cosmetic if your staring down my barrel. Republican leadership has been questioning the effectiveness of the ban.

But, GWB was for extending the ban as was the Senate. Maybe your ire should be directed properly at simply the Republicans (and maybe some Democrats?) in the House who were against the ban. Let's track down those specific guys and give them hell (which does include some members of the Republican leadership in the House, to be fair).<br><br>We already have enough to blame Bush for with Ivan bearing down on the Gulf Coast and such.<br><br>Actually, the expiration of this law will pave the way for a real law with teeth.

dean, do you honestly believe that talking point? (note: i don't know that this is a talking point, but when i heard the details of how it would expire and that the president had publicly stated he'd sign it, i knew instantly how this would get defeated without a vote and that's exactly the point you've now made). <br><br>read joe scarborough's new book to learn the ways of washington, but surely you know this stuff. if someone like the president wants something done, his party in congress gets it done . . . especially if they also have support from the other party. you don't honestly believe that most of those republican congressmen are for the large gov't that is being created by dubya do you? in joe's book you can learn how dubya has pulled out all the stops to make sure that politically popular bills on education, farming and defense passed -- regardless of the price tag. read about those strings that get pulled and you quickly learn why it wasn't members of the house who are at fault for the ban expiring.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
Bush said originally in 1999 that he supported the assault weapons ban and that, "It makes no sense for assault weapons to be around our society." Later on, he hedged his support with the flimsy promise that he would sign a ban if it made it to his desk knowing full well that the Republican leadership would never let it get there.<br><br>If George W. Bush actually did support the ban, he only needed to make a few calls to Congress and use his bully pulpit to plea for some bipartisan cooperation on the issue. With his own party in control of the government, it would have flew through both houses. Instead, he cravenly hid behind an empty promise and never made one single effort to get the law renewed.<br><br>Bush doesn't have values when it comes to things like this.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
