Fine! You win, you can have your AR15, we'll take your pistol instead...Submitted by OriginalEMZ on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 20:36
Has anyone started to wonder that the whole issue with "assault weapons" might turn into a bait-and-switch? Given how many people have been referencing FBI Stats showing the silliness in banning firearms like the AR15, instead talking about how more people die from feet, fists, etc... But there is also the fact the handguns were used 23 times more often than rifles, let alone an AR15. I am just waiting for the switch to come where the politicians give in and say, "After careful (haha) analysis of the facts we have concluded that handguns are a far greater threat to society than "military style assault weapons" (I.e., it looks scary). The Obama and Feinstein bill or OaF will seek to remove handguns from America!"
I know the Supreme court has stated an entire class of firearms cannot be banned, but do you really think that is going to stop them from trying? I am afraid that in an effort to protect the second amendment we they've setting the stage for them to switch to banning handguns. I hope I am wrong, but it is a thought that popped into my head today and I wanted to share it with my fellow DailyPaulers. Have a great night!
