Back to an “assault weapons” ban?

Just as polls show that American public opinion has turned against a ban on so-called assault weapons, comes a push from Democrats on Capitol Hill and gun-control forces to reintroduce such a ban. I’ve got a post at Cato at Liberty with many links on why the shift in public views is backed by solid evidence.


  • They need to at least be honest and call it what it is. “The Scary Looking Gun Ban”

  • IANAL, but can an organization that has been attacked subsequently be sued for false advertising if they advertised their venue as a “gun-free zone” when, in fact, they had good reason to know that it might not be?

  • As a response to terrorist attacks, Obama’s gun control crusade is his invasion of Iraq: an ideo that sounds attractive to his base, but can only come to grief.
