    Leftists couldn't possibly care less about crime or criminals. Their goal is to disarm every least, last law-abiding American citizen—period.

    Don't give up on the American Way of doing politics. Bush is between a rock and a hard place. Several "events" might be planned to help him out:

    1. The ban bill may NEVER reach his desk to sign (thats my guess, he doesn't want it)

    2. Republicans tie the ban-bill to the filling of a large load of conservative judgeships.

    3. A filibuster is conducted by Republicans as a last resort either in the House or Senate. The Democrats have already done this themselves to prevent the approval of a conservative judge.

    4. Bush signs a very watered-down ban-bill that makes it a shadow of its former self a "forced compromise".

    People are always talking about these weird situations and how it's going to play out and blah blah blah, it's just going to end next year that's all.

    I wonder how it would be received if instead of things like "gun control debate", "common-sense gun laws", and "assault weapons ban", the things being discussed were "the free speech control debate", "common-sense restricted religion and speech laws" and "extremist religion ban". What makes these people think after they gut one amendment, the rest won't be fair game, too? After all, it has to be done for the children, right? Right. So they can live as thralls.
