One must ask oneself that if after the unexpected post republican convention bounce in President Bushes ratings in the polls last week, if the Democrats intentionally are letting the assault weapons ban sunset on purpose. Why? Look at the political ammunition they will have. Many Americans are for an extension of the bill. Watch for Kerry, the democrats and the anti gun lobby to release unpresented attacks on gun rights next week hoping to improve Kerrys ratings in the polls. These people are sly and deceptive and will do anything to win the white house and destroy the second amendment not to mention using Executive privilege in an attempt to destroy every other vestige of democracy that we now enjoy. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the second amendment was written so that Americans could have the weapons to overthrow a despotic government. "Never trust the senator from Massachusetts that fears your guns". The people that are trying to take away our 2nd amendment are machiavellian in nature and will never stop at trying to accomplish their agenda. Let us never under estimate the evil of those that seek to revoke our freedoms.
