Well, DUH!"A lot of gun owners are upset about some of the powers that have been given to the federal government," he said. "We're going to try to change that." When asked about the right to bear arms, Feingold acknowledged he originally voted in favor of banning so-called semi-automatic "assault weapons." But he said he hasn't sponsored legislation to continue the ban and is now "leaning against" renewing it.
"At these town meetings over the years, I've heard a lot of people say there might have been some misinformation about what these weapons - guns - really are," Feingold said. "There are some semi-automatics that really aren't assault (weapons)."
What the hell was the stupid bastid doing voting on something about which he was so clueless in the first place?!?
Of course he knew exactly what he was voting for… incremental civilian disarmament! Just as he knew that the Clinton Administration was going to give him the necessary cover!
