    Missouri Democrats Introduce Bill That Would Require “Assault Weapons” be Turned Over to State

    Wait, I thought all of the anti-gun folks keep saying, "Don't worry, no one is talking about confiscation of your guns." Well, apparently Missouri Democrats are. The Missouri state legislature is strongly Republican controlled so the bill is likely to go nowhere, but it's further proof that the anti-gunners goal is confiscation.

    [Video] Nancy Pelosi Says Guns are the Problem With Violent Crime, Refuses to Look at Other Causes

    In a recent interview Nancy Pelosi basically strikes down the notion that violent entertainment has nothing to do with violent crime and more or less puts the blame solely on guns, specifically "assault weapons" (whatever her definition of that is).

Joe's answer basically boils down to the fact that he doesn't think these weapons have any... Read More »
