Harvard Repub and Iraq vet supports AWB
#1
Looked the guy up, of course he is a newspaper writer as well as a Harvard Grad (surprise). Why am I not surprised his level of stupidity (read somewhere he was army intelligence (map reader)).

Quote: As a Republican and Iraq war veteran, I support an assault weapons ban

I am disappointed that an assault weapons ban will not be included in the Senate bill on gun control. The argument of those who claim a right to own 'military capable' rifles is inconsistent with the Constitution I swore to support and defend while I was deployed to Iraq.

The other side is going to try and find anyone willing to admit they are a Republican who is for gun control and trot them out front and center. I even saw a headline the other day "Republican Icon for gun control". It turns out it was Richard Nixon who said something about guns in private conversation. The guy has been dead for 20 years and they want him to be a spokesman for gun control from the right. It is desperation.

Funny how if one of their own says something conservative they crucify him personally, like Bill Cosby can't critique blacks even though he is right on, but they are willing to quote someone from the right if it fits their agenda.
The other thing they do is act like they already won by quoting some bogus trumped up poll and making it seem like if you disagree, you are a loser. They appeal to "low information" voters.

All they have to do is point out that reagan and bush signed the only two federal gun bans into law that are standing today..

Actually, couldn't you say that the NFA of 1934 was also a standing ban?

Quote:I also like to inform my gun-advocating colleagues and friends that the Constitution is not the gospel and has been amended 27 times since its signing in 1787, including for the provisions of universal suffrage and the abolition of slavery. As demonstrated throughout the course of American history, the Constitution has proved to be a living document, which has reflected the state of affairs and needs of its citizenry.

Then try to get an amendment passed that nullifies the second amendment. Until then, it's there, and you must abide by it.

It was a de-facto gun ban because of the astronomically high tax it placed on weapons, making them prohibitively expensive for 99% of Americans.

IMHO it banned the ownership of several different classes of firearms without specific governmental permission. I'd call that a ban.

I'm still trying to figure out what Constitution this asshat swore to uphold and defend.

In regards to the NFA, $200 may not seem like a huge deal anymore but in 1934 is basically doubled the price of most guns. A 1928 Thompson with one magazine cost $200. This was when a new Ford cost $400.

$200 in 1934 was about $3400 after adjusting for inflation.
