Idiots for Gun Control - But I Repeat Myself
Note: this is a post recovered from my old blog, before it died of an insufficient backup. Any comments/trackbacks on it have not been brought over, but can be seen with the original. The date is that of the original posting.\"\;
The Senate renewed the historic 1994 ban on assault rifles by a thin margin of 52 for to 47 against. In another vote of 53 to 46 the bill past through denying gun shows the ability to sell firearms without doing any form of back round checks. Both bills are a continued step in the right direction concerning gun laws in the United States.
I could talk about the joys of public schooling ("back round checks"?, "the bill past through denying gun shows the ability to sell firearms"?), the need for editors in blogs to bring them up to the standards of traditional journalism, or the idiocy of the anti-gun types. There's such a rich panoply of holes to punch in this, I'm unable to determine where to start.
I'm just going to leave you with one phrase from the article: "tools of human assignation". Perhaps he means this (not for children nor work-safe).
