… and thought it was 2004 this morning, because today it’s all about assault weapons and overheated rhetoric:
Yes, Virginia, if you believe in Santa Claus then youâ€™ll believe there is a significant difference worth debating between the killing efficiency of a fully automatic assault weapon and a semi-automatic assault weapon. But understand, the finger-twitch variation is not enough to reduce the bloody heaps of bodies that keep piling up in communities across our fruited plains.Â The National Rogue Association knows that. And so, thankfully, does Andrew Traver.
They are desperate to make banning semi-automatic firearms an issue again, and they have just the guy to help them out in Andrew Traver. I’ll be honest, I never would have guessed back in 2005 when the PLCAA made ATF a position subject to Senate confirmation, that our opponents would be champing at the bit over the prospect of feasting on the badly needed victory of being able to get an ATF Director.
