So-called “assault weapon” ban fails big

Diane Feinstein’s proposed ban on defensive weapons that she thinks are scary looking is dead, dead, dead. Harry Reid says it couldn’t get even 40 votes, much less the 60 votes it would need.

Still undeservedly alive is the other major gun control bill. It would require so-called Universal Background Checks. The idiotic thing about it is that it applies only to the good guys. “Universal” is anything but universal, for the simple reason that the bad guys never go through any background checks.

All of these gun control proposals make it harder for the good guys to obtain defensive weapons, and do absolutely nothing to stop the bad guys.
