Default Re: Democrats Promise Most Aggressive Gun Control Measure In Decades

He also supported the Brady assault weapons ban. Mitt Romney at the state level enacted an assault weapons ban, raised fees on gun owners and supported a 5 day waiting period just to purchase firearms. In 2000 Trump supported an assault weapons ban, waiting period, donated to anti-2nd amendment politicians, and he currently supports denying people with no due process on a terrorist watch list the right to keep and bear arms. Rick Scott raised the age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and enacted a 3 day waiting period on gun sales. Mary Fallin vetoed a bill that would have allowed law abiding Oklahomans to carry a handgun without a permit.
Oh. don't get me wrong, I don't trust any politician when it comes to my rights (or anything else for that matter). I was simply commenting on the self-destructive nature of Dems, especially when they think they are winning and have momentum. Right now gun control (at least what these idiots want) is a non-starter, even with d's in the majority in the house what they want is unlikely to pass and it's DOA in the Senate. All they can do with this is piss off a large portion of their constituents.
