    I thought it was incredibly stupid to just let the assault weapons ban expire.

    Then, we had the village idiot in the White House, and now we have the Teabaggers in Congress.

    Incredibly stupid.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken

        We didn't get a Democratic congress until two years later, in 2006.

        But one would have hoped (without much real hope, to be honest) that even the GOP would recognize that letting assholes run around with military rifles was A Bad Thing For The Nation.

        Maybe we need more people assholes with military rifles gunning down GOPers to reinstate the assault weapons ban.../snark.
