I have to add, no Democrat that I'm aware of has even introduced any legislation to start that process, or ban any guns. I haven't even heard of any movement to reinstate the AWB, which use to be the law of the land. Congress can ban certain guns without rewriting the 2nd amendment. If by some miracle the 2nd amendment was abolished, it would be like prohibition. A huge criminal network of gun sellers would develop and anyone could get a gun anyways, without the slightest background checks at all.
Of course it is a con. But the dimwits who suck up everything the NRA says don't care. No matter what happens, Americans will not give up their guns.
Luke: Good point -- if the 2nd Amendment were abolished, it would be Prohibition all over again, only with guns and assault weapons instead of booze. But it's moot in any case. Too many millions of Americans have guns; it would be political suicide for any politician who tried to take them away.MRM: Yup, it's a con. And tens of millions of Americans are ready to snap to attention and go "Ugh!!! NO!!!" every time the NRA says "_________ is coming for your guns!"
I don't know about Gun owners but I know who Gun Dealers would vote for President. Obama has given them 8 years of booming business every time someone spreads the rumor he's going to take away their guns. Naturally they would want Hilary.Erik
Erik: Damn right. Gun dealers have a gold mine in those millions of paranoid gun owners.
