    Can anyone actually define what an Assault Weapon is? Define the damn things, so the rest of us know what to pointlessly rant about.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Bullshit, it is going to sunset. There is not enough support to pass it again. Stay on the optimistic side.

    Yeah, it's a relief that now they'd be forced to use one of these: [​IMG]
    instead of a tec-9. Sure, it's got 5 times the range and 4 times the power, but at least it doesn't look as scary. :rolleyes:

    I was watching on CNN they had a hearing about it in congress or something and a lady had a large pic of a Tech-9 and said that Columbine and stuff could happen more. It was on the 5yr ann of that happening. I think with the politics involved I dont think the ban will be lifted
    I agree there are so much more powerful legal weapons than a tech-9 but its the Stigma in the publics eyes that anytime you mention columbine and AWB it will never pass

    the house majority leader, tom DeLay has said that the bill will never make it to the floor for debate. since he controls the schedule like that, and decides what bills come out of committee for debate and vote, he can say that. and knowing that his buddy tom (who has been a family friend for years and years) can keep it from coming out, bush can promise that IF it comes to him, he'll sign it. but since it'll never come out of committee, there's nothing to worry about it. and the senate will never get a version of it out, because any republican can filibuster it.

    on top of that, the thing was passed in 1994, under a democratic president, and a democratically controlled house and senate, and even then, BARELY squeeked by. then, after that, a lot of democrats lost their spots because of voters and their unhappiness. the democrats know it's a losing issue, which is why it's only brought up by the hardcore far left democrats who represent hardcore left areas, and don't have to worry about voter lashback. they're almost expected to bring it up. but notice that there is no popular movement by any group in congress to actively pursue foreverifying the AWB.

    now, for the love of god, stop worrying about it.
