Feinstein is from the SF area & was involved in the Harvey Milk issue, Durbin from IL, have you looked at the crime statistics from IL recently & I'm just talking about the violent crime, like losing your life. Do you honestly believe they do not have an agenda & will look out for the best interests of the country?
The NRA has really pushed the "camel's nose under the tent argument", i.e., that ANY regulation will lead to a complete ban on guns. By that reasoning, traffic laws and license requirements would lead to a ban on driving cars. Similarly, the NRA argues that, if there are guns laws, only law-abiding citizens wil obey them. There are plenty of people that drive without a license. Does that mean that driver's licenses are worthless and we should forget about them?
Neither pro-gun or anti-gun. Pro-reason, regards.
