"According to the Washington Post, Pelosi asked House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) to allow a vote on a Democratic bill banning the devices. Upon being asked if the bill was a slippery slope toward further gun restrictions, she said, "So what? … I certainly hope so." This is what Pelosi said, and it is what liberals want. Like the camel, just let us get our nose under the tent. After all, it is perfectly reasonable gun control legislation. It appears that many here are too young to realize all of the previous instances where "all we want is some common sense, reasonable restrictions". All of the common sense, reasonable restrictions that have become law in the last 50 years have done absolutely nothing to stop the evil in some people's hearts. I'll stop here. Additional comments by me will only serve to raise my blood pressure.
