Glad to hear that the lib dems are all soiling their pants and panties over this one..... :lol:
LOL - She DOES usually look like she has a mouthful of sour grapes, perhaps you're right!Mac2411 said:Or it could just be sour grapes over not being consulted before such an announcement was made. Remember, she had a similar reaction to another bill not long ago. On the other hand, this could be a positive development. I would LOVE to be wrong on my predictions of a push for an AWB this year.
I think they're aiming for 2010 and beyond first. They still remember how the Clinton ban ended their control of the house and senate, and like you said, the economy isn't anywhere near stable enough to test the water of constitutional rights just yet.Oregonian said:Pelosi is nuts, but she's no fool. This is just another indication that one hand of the Democratic Party doesn't know what the other is doing. Pelosi understands that the Democrats are in a perfect position. Things have gotten so badly, so quickly that the party in charge has the opportunity to look like heroes if they just allow enough time to pass for everything to get better. Taking on controversial issues like the AWB are risky and could backfire.
BINGO! +1owenb01 said:I really hate to spoil the good mood, but this is a scam. They know the outrage that would come about if this passed right now, so Pelosi is trying to garnish what little support she can from the American People until she feels the time is right to start a back-door assault on our rights. It seems the libs are catching on that the sheep won't revolt if liberty is stripped a little at a time. "Sure, keep your assualt weapons," they'll say. "Now look the other way while we start passing legislation to serialize ammo, after all, it's give a little take a little, right? Ok, you still have your assault weapons and are all responsible ammo owners, now we need you to buy a "day-pass" every time you want to go shooting (see Switzerland, they've got 'em). It's for your own good, we need to offset that nasty carbon you are putting off..."
What was it that chick said in the Star Wars movie? "So this is how liberty dies...To thunderous applause...?"
