Un-safer with AKs on the street
Thanks to the Republican Legislature and George Bush, we are about to become less safe again. The Senate is about to allow the Assault Weapon ban to expire and George Bush isn't saying a word. Bush is courting the NRA and by allowing the ban to expire, he wins their votes. The only problem is... Bush promised to keep us safe! Now he is breaking that promise also. Generally, I would be opposed to assault weapons on a normal day. They are horrible for hunting, they are horrible for self defense, and they look horrible hanging over a fireplace. But, even as Bush promises to keep us safer, he is allowing al Queada to waltz right into Wal-Mart and buy an automatic weapon. Terrorists don't have to sneak them into the country... They just need to buy kits to modify non-automatic weapons into automatic weapons. They just go into Wal-Mart, buy an automatic weapon, walk across the street to the elementry school and start spraying the audience. There you go!... killing masses of persons without having to buy bomb making materials... Keeping us safer or just another broken promise?
