    Obama supports another assault weapon ban. This is the truth about what happened with the last assault weapon ban.

    Be warned Obama... and be warned congress... don't touch our guns. Look what happened last time.

    The whole idea of banning guns to stop crime is flawed anyhow. These people are already criminals, they'll have no compunctions about buying guns illegally.

    But that's the problem stab-o-matic, that people think removing guns will reduce gun crime when all it will do is increase it in the long run.

    I really think a lot of people in the gun-control movement understand the statistics, they just don't like guns and want to get rid of them.

    Chill out, they're Democrats and Dems are generally anti-gun anyway, even Dennis Kucinich wanted a gun ban of some sort and I liked him during the primaries.

    The problem with gun legislation and a lot of other policies, is that Obama is not going to push any of this - he's just going to sign it. So, if you can get 10 Senators to add a $500 tax to automatic weapons (Which I'm sure you can), they will get it through and there's no way to stop it since there will be 60 Dem Senators. I'll sign your weapons tax if you'll sign my ban on offshore drilling.
    We are about to give one party an incredible amount of Federal power.

    One party control... one needs only look at Carter and his 60 seat Democrat controlled Senate. High taxes, double digit unemployment, the start of the housing problem, problems with Iran and a horrible fuel shortage. We're basically looking at the same thing here with Obama and a possible 60 seat Democratic Senate again...

    But hey look at the bright side... it'll take 4 years of severe socialism and economic failure to get another Reagan. That "New" Reagan is Palin :)

    Well, not every Democrat supports a gun ban, and a lot of the democrats who were picked up in the 2006 elections are pretty conservative (by Democrat standards).

    I personally think people are overreacting just a bit, though I do say that even though I'm a liberal my perfect scenario for the senate would be 50/50 straight down the line for Democrats and Republicans.

    Stab-O-Matic, I love you as much as its possible for a hetrosexual conservative to love a heterosexual liberal that he just met in a message board.

    But really, I suspect you're absolutely right with the conservative dems and I am 100% with you on a 50/50 split being an ideal Senate.
