New gun control proposals

The first new federal proposals for gun controls since the public school massacre have been introduced.  The supporters continue to labor under the delusions that guns cause crime and gun control can work to reduce crime.  There is no credible evidence that the last "asault weapons" ban reduced gun crime. Introduction of the legislation will, as usual, casue both law-abiding citizens and criminals to make runs on gun stores for "assault weapons," and high capacity magazines.  Not only will the legislation have no effect on crime, it will backfire on supporters who want fewer guns and large cap. magazines in the country.  The same cottage industries that turned out high cap. magazines during the last ban will be operating at full capacity if the bill passes.   More emotonalism fed by propaganda.  Once again, the irrational triumphs.  Let's hope the House will dispatch this nonsense.  Fortunately, for the Second Amendment, the bill appears to have little chance of passing.  More grandstanding by the delusional.

    What? This Senator is blind to reality. Go ahead and grab everybody's guns and you can bet there will be more " ... mass killings ... again, and again, and again in this country.".

    Representative C. McCarthy said "'I thought for sure, after Virginia Tech, we would get something done ...'".

    Something productive was done on Campuses in Colorado and Utah. They allowed their college communities to arm themselves. The only real solution to countering an active shooter scenario. It's not that difficult to figure out. And yet DC's legislative geniuses keep pushing their destructively unproductive laws upon the good citizens of America. Shame on voters who released these clowns upon the country's capital.
