If only we could cross examine the anti-gun politicians

    Wouldn't it be nice to get the politicians who want to pass demagogic legislation someplace where they had to answer some simple and straightforward questions.

    1. Senator, is it true that under your legislation passed in 1994 certain guns which were perfectly legal under the legislation became illegal if you merely added a flash hider or a bayonet lug?

    That was a pretty dumb result, wasn't it?

    How many drive-by bayonettings were prevented by your law?

    2. Senator, under your proposed legislation, a gun that was completely legal with an overall length of 36 inches would become illegal if you added a stock that let the overall length expand to 37 inches?

    Isn't that really stupid?

    How does that make us safer?

    3. Senator, the law that you are proposing in response to the horrific acts of a madman would have done nothing to prevent that tragedy, correct?

    Don't you owe it to the people who lost their lives to propose a law that would have helped them?

    4. Governor, under your "Magazine Ban," people who have 10 round magazines can keep them, and the public will be safer because potential mass murderers will be prevented from loading them with more trhan 7 rounds? Right?

    How stupid do you think we are?

    5. Governor, what does the number of bullets needed to kill a deer have to do with the Second Amendment?

    I'm starting to feel good about living in a reasonable state like California!

    That is a sad statement.

    Our Country is a Republic where elected officials make the laws. If they hold town hall meetings, you can ask your questions directly to them. You can also write and ask that they respond to the questions you provide. If they do not vote in favor of bills you support, your recourse is to try and vote them out of office.

    Actually if you watched the debate in the NY Assembly, or read Trent's masterful transcripting of it, real time, cross-examination really didn't matter. The pro-gun Senators in that body ripped their opponents up one side and down the other. Handed them their heads. It was quite embarrassing. The antis could answer NONE of our side's points and admitted that what they were doing would save no lives.

    But they passed their ban anyway, by a huge margin. They just don't care. If they CAN ban, they WILL ban. Logic or validity of their claims be damned.

    Oh yes, direct questions to them would be so effective. But, I'm curious, what makes you think their lies would be any more truthful in a face to face than what they spew the rest of the time?

    I did not know this.
    Sad commentary on the value of public debate.

    I'd like to be able to say this surprises me, I really would.

    I watched the streaming video, too, it was nuts; several of them admitted it wouldn't do anything about violence and that it was just "feel good" theatre, but went ahead and voted for it. Several referred to the firearms as WMD's :what:, it was just insane....

    The sheeple will never see what happened on the floor. All they see is the favorable coverage in the news.
