In 2004, when the federal ban on “assault weapons” expired, many of us might remember the anti-gun people boasting that they would take the fight to the states, and had at least five to seven other states that they could get one passed in.
Well, it’s now two and a half years later. I have one question for the gun control advocates:
How’s those state level assault weapons bans you’re working on going? Looking real successful there. Got a whole safe full of them. Getting more too! Still waiting for those bans you were talking about. Any day now!
OK, so I’ll have a little fun rubbing it in their faces, but we still need to be vigilant. I think we may have saved Maryland for another year, but that issue won’t die there, or anywhere. We’re still the front line of the gun rights movement.
