Mrs. Feinstein’s gun ban arbitrarily targets 160 guns, magazines and various firearm accessories; yet, as Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, has pointed out, an analysis of Clinton-era Justice Department statistics reveals no link between the original 1994 “assault weapons” ban and any drop in crime. Why is Mrs. Feinstein reintroducing legislation that was ineffective the first time? Can’t lawmakers in Washington pass a law that realistically reduces gun violence?

fair question, deserves an honest answer

The rights of free people are immune when dealing with societal problems.

You cannot legislate guns from the hands of criminals anyway. Legislation can only take rights from the law-abiding.

Stop using crime statistics. Gun control is a civil rights issue and should always be treated as such.

This is not now, and has never been, about guns. This has always been about people control.

Always will be, too. Its human nature to lust for greed and power. You can control unarmed people. This is where the right to he armed stems from; the right to fight for survival.
