Dhimmicratic craphounds in Congress are trying to portray the impending expiration of the assault weapons ban as the end of civilization. And it's all the Republicans' fault, see. (Remember: Dhimmicrats are tougher on crime than Republicans.)
So how does someone like the execrable Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer, make this point? Easy: by saying that we shouldn't end the ban because we don't want terrorists buying assault weapons.
Right. Terrorists are well-known for obeying gun control laws. I'm sure that the end of the ban will be all that it takes to awaken the al-Qaedist sleeper cells who've been biding their time for the past decade, just waiting for the chance to legally purchase a gat.
CORRECTION: I think the ban has already expired! My bad. Hope I didn't give anyone a false sense of safety.
