The proposed "assault weapon" ban is a farce. The gun prohibitionists have tried to conflate full auto military weapons with semiautomatic guns in the minds of the public. The pistols, rifles, and shotguns the leftists seek to prohibit fire one shot for each pull of the trigger, precisely like guns with a less menacing, less military appearance. Those who want to restrict our liberty want the gullible to think the government wants to keep Americans safe from machine gun-type weapons, which have been severely restricted for civilian ownership for decades. Tyrants generally do not seize all freedom in a single swoop but steal freedoms a little at a time.
