Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Some mistake.

Just a few weeks ago, folks at the Seattle Times were rubbing their hands together with glee that people had finally seen the light in Washington, and might be willing to embrace 'Common Sense' gun control. 

Now, those very same folks are wringing their hands in distress because some politicians had eyes too big for their stomach made a mistake in introducing an Assault Weapons Ban here in Washington.  In addition to specifically singling out such dangerous weapons as 'Shotguns with Revolving Cylinders' as Assault Weapons(Because we all know how those Circuit Judges are flooding the market). 

The mistake in this case?  Placing a provision in the AWB that anyone wishing to still own Assault Weapons that are graciously being grandfathered in, must be willing to submit to an annual inspection to ensure they are being properly stored.

Words fail me.  But hey, according to one of the bills sponsors, it's okay, because 'he came to realize that an assault-weapons ban has little chance of passing this year anyway. So he put in this bill more as “a general statement, as a guiding light of where we need to go.” '
