Of course, it’s true that the gun control issue hasn’t received as much media attention during the Bush II administration as it did during the Clinton reign, one of the very few bright spots of the W years.
But now that the Democrats control both the House and the Senate again, such rabid gun prohibitionists as Hillary Clinton, Chucky Schumer, Diane Feinstein, John Kerry, and John Conyers [Roy's Edit: And as are many Republicans - Rudi Guiliani being a prime example] are back in business and the prohibitionist unspeak will be flowing again as they try to close the nonexistent "gun show loophole," revisit "assault weapons," and try to come up with something catchier to stigmatize .50-caliber rifles than they’ve been able to come up with so far.
I hope you read the article in it's entirety. I really mean it...
One of the few good ones I've come across in a long time on the topic of gun control.
Oh, ok . . . .you are telling me I'm missing something . . . .

Making a copy . . . . .sending it out.

I read it.
I do hope that with all the real problems in this country these campaign issues like flag burning and gun control (instead of enforcing the laws already on the books) are ignored in favor of honest discussion and fact finding on real problems we have now.
