Gunmakers Happy Assault Weapons Ban Set To Expire
Gun Companies To Sell Military-Style Weapons

WASHINGTON -- With the federal ban on assault weapons set to expire next Monday, gun manufacturers are marketing military-style firearms and are ready to sell them as soon as Sept. 14, a consumer group said Tuesday.

"The gun industry is champing at the bit for the ban to expire," said Susan Peschin, firearms project director at the Consumer Federation of America, a nonprofit association of 300 consumer groups that released the study.

40 for 60 against. Not bad.
It must be in my DNA

My dad once told me that he never drank a beer, or had any desire to, until the U.S. government passed a law that said he couldn't. (Prohibition, the Volstead Act, the 18th Amendment... you know.)

When they said he couldn't - he started drinking.

Well, I never wanted an AR-15 until the government got ready to say I couldn't have one. Before the ban I rushed out and got one.

It looks like the ban is about to expire - I certainly hope so.

Guess I'll start shopping around for an AK-47...........

Oh yeah.

Did I mention high capacity magazines for my Glocks?

We should push the repeal of the Hughes amendment next.
Help Me With This One

OK, I need some help with the "Hughes Amendment."

Was this the one that had something to do with reviewing statistical records of how many people of a particular race were given the death penalty and considering this when sentencing people convicted of murder?

I thought that got modified in the committee that reconciled the House and Senate versions of the death penalty law.

You need to enlighten me.
