1994 All Over Again

When it comes to gun control failures, the corpse is always propped up and repainted like a new Joker -this time, Bill Clinton promoting a resurrected version of his long-dead 1994 semi-auto ban. Addressing the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Clinton let loose with the same saliva-slinging, fist-pounding, make-it-up-as-you-go-along sermonizing that he used to bamboozle Congress to pass the first senseless ban 15 years ago.

He is still spewing the same old tired torrent: "Nobody wants to repeal the Second Amendment, and nobody wants to keep you out of the deer woods, but wouldn't it be nice if your children didn't have to worry about being mowed down by an assault weapon when they turn the corner?"

Well, Mr. Former President who presided over a 47 percent drop in federal gun crime prosecutions, it would be nice if our children didn't have to worry about violent crime in general. It would be nice if leaders like you were capable of attacking gang violence with a rational and effective policy. Instead you feed a ravenous ego with the cheap theater of ignorant fearmongering, the stuff that scares people into supporting gun control idiocies that protect no one -but that pump up your pomposity.

Considering four out of five crimes are committed by gang members, Mr. Clinton, a former president concerned more with safety than with swagger would ask, “Wouldn't it be nice if your children didn't have to worry about becoming a victim of gang violence anywhere, because we crushed them with our resolve?”

The National Institute for Justice said if Clinton's ban were renewed, "the ban's effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best, and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. [These guns] were rarely used in gun crimes even before the ban."

Mr. Clinton, your gun control garbage is already consigned to the trash can of history. Do us all a favor and put a lid on it.
