Apparently some elected democrats have figured out just what a political porcupine gun rights truly is.
Congressmen Mike McIntyre, Heath Shuler, and Larry Kissel have signed a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder chastising him for his remarks about reviving the so-called assault weapons ban.
The letter has some pretty clear language that will be quite a head scratcher for many liberals that supported Kissel, in particular. Take a look at the following:
"The gun control community has intentionally misled many Americans into believing that these weapons are fully automatic machine guns. They are not." (emphasis mine)
"Law-abiding Americans use these guns for all of the same reasons they use any other kind of gun – competitive shooting, hunting and defending their homes and families."
"A long and devise fight over gun control will only distract us…"
Words have value but the proof will be seen in the votes of these three congressmen. One opportunity may come soon. Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has attached an amendment to a credit card reform bill that will allow the carrying of concealed weapons in national parks.
I reccommend reading the letter in its entirety.
