Re: Obama plan: Ban assault weapons
First of all, let me say that hunters (myself included) are very concerned about the environment and take care of the land. Not to mention game meat like deer, elk, etc...are actually leaner and healthier than red meat.
Anyway...I get a laugh out of how it's always the fault of the guns that all these happen. The main concern should be the murderers and maniacs that are running around there and can get access to these guns. I have no problem with people having to undergo the application process to get a gun, I'm even fine with being required to attend safety classes, etc. Hell, I won't hunt with anyone who hasn't done that.
What they need to do is start trying to find a way to address mental illness in this country and find ways to get these people either the help they need or off the streets. In these shooting sprees, the perpetrator was not right in the head. They are in need of undergoing therapy or something.
I really hope Obama isn't that brazen to want to go after the 2nd Amendment, he will have a huge battle on his hands and could be looking at possible impeachment. He's already done that though with the blatant ignoring of the War Powers Act when it comes to Libya so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.
