We need to hit this hard. Right now it's 68.6% against a ban and 27% for a ban.

Newsvine - Should President Obama push to permanently reinstate a ban on assault weapons?

Up to 71+ right now.
I read some of the anti comments.
A real good example of why it's a good idea to remain silent when you have no idea what you're talking about.
No - 73.7%
Yes - 22.5%
Maybe - 3.9%

Someone should tell the No's, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt."
The thing that always gets me laughing about these things are when people's arguments for banning guns are the following:

How many more Virginia Tech's need to happen before we stop the madness!?!?[\quote]

First of all he used two guns: a .22 and a 9mm Glock 19. He did not have an automatic assault rifle. Get your stories strait...

Assault rifles have one purpose killing people. I grew up with guns and hunting and I believe no civilian should have these guns.

You may have been correct in this statement, however the more correct statement is that no criminal should have these guns. The problem is they do. So now in order to keep the balance of power in the law abiding citizens hands, you have to allow people to not be sheep.

Last but not least

I know more than one crazy person that owns a gun, they should all be outlawed

If that were true, I know more than one crazy driver. Does that mean we should all lose our licenses? Come on people, think before you open your mouth.
When are people going to start thinking before they post?

Here is another one:

Until game animals start shooting back, there is no legitimate reason for anyone to need an assault weapon. Period.

What about criminals?

Yes. We had the ban for 10 years. He should use up whatever political capital is necessary to reinstate the ban.

No. It was a mistake the first time around and it would be a mistake again. Existing gun laws are enough.

Maybe. Owning a gun is a right, but I'm conflicted as to whether or not average Americans should be able to own assault weapons.
