It's not about crime. Anyone can look at the stats and see that not only isn't thing type of crime a significant issue, but the ban didn't do anything. This is about liberals forcing their vision for the proper role of government onto the people. They hate guns, and they fear guns, for whatever reason, and they don't want you to have them. That's what this is about.
Don't let any of them kid you, every gun grabber knows why they fear guns; a gun is an equalizer. A 90yo grandmother can keep a mob at bay with a Buckmark all with a threat that does not need to even be spoken. "Leave me in peace or risk death."
Those that would undo what was done in 1776 cannot abide a citizen to have that individual power, because that would mean that citizen can be responsible for themselves and, so, in control of the government rather than beholden to it.
Their principal is not that of "from many, one" but "many for one".

Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.
all they did was copy that from the change.org site.
That's a very powerful, true statement.
