Great. The assault weapons ban is about to expire and no one seems to care. What's next? Allowing Americans to own surface to air missiles? How about allowing the average American Joe to buy a tank from a U.S. military garage sale? Let me just say that there is no need or reason for assault weapons other then to kill mass amounts of people. No one needs an assault weapon to defend themselves unless they live in Fallujah, Iraq. And no one needs an assault weapon to go hunting. There wouldn't be any meat left to eat if you killed a deer with one of these things. You'd be biting bullets more then meat. I think its ironic that we are STILL looking for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq while we are about to flood the American streets with guns of mass destruction. On the issue, John Kerry today said, "Today George Bush made the job of terrorists easier and made the job of America's law enforcement officers harder and that's just plain wrong." http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-09-12-weapons-ban_x.htm?POE=NEWISVA I concure future President Kerry. Bush certainly does not act like the President of the United States. I guess we now know that he is actually the President of the National Rifle Association and their lobbyists are his true administration.
