    The guy replacing Colmes brought up the AWB when they were interviewing the Republican Massachussetts Governor. The Governor says that he believes in the 2nd Amendment but not in assault weapons. He also says that the NRA supports the Massachussetts' state AWB renewal. Watch the rerun to see it again. I'm watching it RIGHT NOW, but it just ended.

    Oh, yeah and the guy replacing Colmes asked if the Governor was worried if Usama bin Laden will tell his agents in the US to go to the gun store and get an AK-47 and attacking. The Governor made a good rebuttal when he said "Trucks bombs are homeland security, not this."

    AND later the guy replacing Colmes (when interviewing Congressmen Harold Ford, JR. (D-TN) also asked about the AWB. Typical liberal crap.

    Again if there is a rerun, tape it or watch it so you can see the crap they say. "It makes cops' jobs easier." :barf: :barf: :barf: :barf:

    You can never have too many barf smilies. Up it comes again. :barf:

    I never thought I'd hear myself say this......but I want Alan Colmes back. At least he doesn't usually push on the anti-gun BS.

    Alan Colmes is one of the few liberals I like to watch. He seems smart and etc. and is a nice guy. But, I'd rather remain Hannitized than a Colmes follower. (I swear, though, if I was Hannity, Colmes would be dead. I would go insane sitting next to him :D lol)
  8. Alan Colmes..........Other than being ugly, talking too fast, being a flaming liberal and saying stupid things, is a lot better talking head than Hannity.

    I don't know what to say about Shawn.


    p.s. I know how to spell his name. I just refuse to spell it correctly.:p

    Sean Hannity only looks smart so long as Alan Colmes is hanging around.

    I'm pretty disgusted that he didn't say a word to refute what the libs were saying (typical anti lies). Maybe he's just not educated on the subject? I'll email him, maybe I can help :evil:

    He's not interested. All he really gets worked up about are issues about marriage and child-rearing, and other people's sex lives.

    Plus, like 99 percent of the populace, he probably has no idea what the AWB actually bans. I'm sure he thinks it's got something to do with machine guns.

    Mitt said (close paraphrase), "I signed a bill that extended the assault weapons ban and made it easier to purchase other types of weapons. It was supported by the NRA and GOAL..."

    I seem to remember a thread where some folks were angry about (Gun Owners Action League) GOAL's involvement with this.

    Mass. assualt weapons ban

    MY understanding about the Mass. Assualt Weapons Ban, is that it gave a few things that gun owners wanted/needed, while doing nothing for the anti's, other then letting them claim that they extended something that wasn't sunsetting. I understand that the Mass AWB did not have a sunset date and would have continued even if the Fed. AWB ended.

    The Mass. AWB gave us:

    1) An extension of 2 years, from 4 to 6 on our gun permits.
    2) A 90 grace period should the permit expire before reissue
    3) Forces the Law Enforcement give a receipt for confiscated guns
    4) Sets up a review board for people who were denied permits.

    I think this is correct and I'm not sure what else it does.

    "Mitt said (close paraphrase), "I signed a bill that extended the assault weapons ban and made it easier to purchase other types of weapons. It was supported by the NRA and GOAL...""

    GOAL supported the reform measures in this bill concerning firearms licensing procedures and efforts to restore the right to own firearms to certain people denied for minor offenses committed a long time ago. These were recognized abuses in our system and the bill was needed in that respect.

    GOAL also claims that 700 types of firearms were saved from being declared assault weapons and therefore not banned under Massachusetts law which, if true, would be good. However I have not yet seen that provision so I don't know for sure.

    Here is a link to the GOAL webpage talking about the bill:


    In any case, Gov Romney's comments make it very unlikely that the Massachusetts Republican Party will get any money from me this year. Individual candidates might, but not the part nor the Governor.

    Some additional thoughts...

    The major provisions of this bill were needed.

    And, it is unlikely that we in this Commonwealth are going to obtain any huge victories against the liberal gun-banners here so we need to take what we can get, build on it for the next fight, and hope that the National AWB sunsets and the aftermath provides us ammunition (pun intended) to attack the Massachusetts ban.

    Does anyone else think the Alan Colmes is looking more like Gollum every day?

    I just fume at this logic. Our former senior senator from KY, Wendell Ford, tried this on Kentuckians during the '94 passage of the AWB. How are we to feel good when a politician tells us that "hey, see where I kept these from being banned?". This skips the simple logic of asking the question of why was there any ban in the first place? This is just like me coming into any one of your homes and taking all your furniture then telling you that you should like me because I let you keep your coffee table.

    Given the MA political and social climate , the changes to our gun laws were very positive things . Plenty of Republicans and moderate/conservative independants here do not favor the ownership of *assault rifles* ; that is fact and it is life . I'm a realist and would much rather have Romney than the alternative as long as I'm living here .
