Hillary is being all pussy cat with the gun issue, but beware:

And we need to enforce the laws that we have on the books. I would also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban. We now have, once again, police deaths going up around the country, and in large measure because bad guys now have assault weapons again. We stopped it for awhile. Now they’re back on the streets.

Of course that’s patently ridiculous to anyone who understands what the federal assault weapons law did and didn’t do, but she’s convinced that it worked, despite the fact that it banned nothing, and studies show it was useless.  Obama has decided to stake his flag on the Tiahrt Amendment:

I don’t think that we can get that done. But what I do think we can do is to provide just some common-sense enforcement. One good example — this is consistently blocked — the efforts by law enforcement to obtain the information required to trace back guns that have been used in crimes to unscrupulous gun dealers.That’s not something that the NRA has allowed to get through Congress. And, as president, I intend to make it happen.

Of course, he’s completely full of shit too.  Tiahrt doesn’t prevent law enforcement from tracing guns in criminal investigations.  It never has.  Breck Boy has stakes his flag pole on the assault weapons issue as well:

I don’t believe that means you need an AK-47 to hunt. And I think the assault weapons ban, which Hillary spoke about just a minute ago, as president of the United States I’ll do everything in my power to reinstate it. But I do think we need a president who understands the sportsmen, hunters who use their guns for lawful purposes have a right to have their Second Amendment rights looked after.

You don’t need any type of rifle to hunt, but Kalashnikovs get the job done effectively.  Given that the AR-15 is the most popular sporting rifle in the United States today, I don’t think John Edwards, despite him being from “the rural South” has any understanding of sportsmen at all.

Nonetheless, this is a very defensive stance, and has to frustrate the Brady Campaign to no end.  All candidates are willing to restore Brady’s recent lost ground, but that’s as far as they dare go.  We are winning folks, and we have to defeat these clowns in 2008 in order to keep winning.

  1. I see two mistakes in your post, though they are understandable.

    1. They all understand the situation and they all know they are lying. They are relying on their listeners being as ignorant as most of them are.

    2. We are not winning. We are at best holding our own. We will not be winning until a man who has broken no law cannot be convicted in spite of it. Most recently Olafson comes to mind, but there are many more instances on record. No court has reined in the usurpers doing the dirty work. Until that time when it is no longer possible to suborn jurists to gain false convictions of innocent people we are not winning.

    Other than that you are mostly on target. I will grant you that they are afraid we will win. But reality shows us not ready to take a victory lap any time soon.
