Doubling down on the stupid - gun control edition

In this election season, inevitably the pros and cons of gun control are being debated once again.  Hillary Clinton and her Vice-Presidential candidate, Tim Kaine, outlined their positions this week.  They didn't say any more than the usual drivel . . . and it was as far from the facts of the situation as ever.

I've written extensively on this topic before.  I'll simply point readers to this article from 2010.  It summarizes the logical, rational approach as well as anything else I've written about it.

For those who still don't get it, there's always this:

The humor-deficient won't agree, of course.  Neither will Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

In 1994 Bill and Hillary along with a Democrat controlled congress rammed the Assault Weapon Ban down our throats.
They reluctantly agreed to a ten year sunset clause with the firm belief that the ban would be so successful that it would be renewed with no objection.
Later that year in the off year election the Democrats lost control of both housed of Congress.
For ten years people dealt with work arounds that met the restrictions of the ban without completely disarming folks. Stuff like limiting features on AR rifles, making standard capacity pistol magazines with pinched off bodies to limit them to 10 rounds. And some models of firearm simply went away.
In 2004 even the most rabid anti gunners could show no evidence that the AWB had done any of the things claimed for it. So it was allowed to fade into obscurity.
Now Hillary and the Dems must think the people have forgotten all that history.
It is my fondest hope that the 80 million gun owners in this country remember their history, and remember it well.

I want someone to ask Hillary and Tim why the Secret Service are provided FULLY AUTOMATIC firearms to protect the lives of themselves and their families, yet run to prohibit firearm possession for U.S. citizens. I'm sure we would all be fascinated to hear their answers.
