Pretty disingenuous analogy there, Mark, even for you.

Difference is, the groups wanting to do this have made no effort to hide the fact they want all guns banned. This is just the first step. Live with your head in the sand.....

Oh and don't worry M Remington, because after they get done taking our firearms, they WILL come after your vehicle. It can be used as a deadly weapon as well. Not just by killing folks in car accidents, but by emitting noxious fumes.

When I grew up in Northern Illinois we had to be licesed to buy ammunition. All this liscensing worked very well. Today you have a better chance of being murdered in Chicago then being killed in Iraq. They have had forty plus years to perfectand they aren'tcloser to eliminate gun crimes.
