Casey flips on gun rights, now supports ban
#1
Screw the facts, forget about principles and logic, let's just do a knee-jerk ban that won't do a damn thing about crime, that's what this boils down too.

Quote:WASHINGTON - Sen. Bob Casey, who has long opposed new gun laws, said Wednesday that he had changed his views in the aftermath of last week's shootings in Newtown, Conn., and would support bills to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.

In an interview in his office, the ordinarily staid Casey (D., Pa.) told The Inquirer that he was "haunted" by the images and reports of children killed in their school, and teachers slain trying to protect them. He said his wife confronted him as he reassessed the issue over the weekend.
Furrowing his brow and casting his eyes downward, Casey expressed regret that he had not reconsidered his views as starkly after earlier massacres at Virginia Tech and in Aurora, Colo.

"The power of the weapon, the number of bullets that hit each child, that was so, to me, just so chilling, it haunts me. It should haunt every public official," said Casey, who won a second term six weeks ago while touting his opposition to gun control.

He's a dem, when emotion comes into play he tows the party line.

With Corbett, Casey, and our new attorney general, if the US doesn't get an AWB, PA might.

Is anyone surprised?
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

Probably not, but part of the problem we as gun owners have is that we rely far too much on others, such as the NRA to do our fighting for us.

If every single person in the US who owned weapons that are in danger of being regulated or banned spoke up to their elected officials, they would at least think twice about acting like idiots.
