Paul Helmke doesn't like Sarah Palin telling the truth.

My reply to Paul Helmke's latest screed:

Every year at this event, we hear more of the same fear-mongering: "your guns are going to be outlawed; your guns are going to be confiscated;

And every year, I hear this from the Brady campaign: "Congress must pass strong, effective legislation to ban all military-style semi-automatic assault weapons along with high capacity ammunition magazines. "

And what good is a ban without confiscation of those already owned? It sounds like those two fears are fairly legitimate.

The politicians, celebrities, and NRA leaders say these same self-serving things every year because they ignore the facts - guns haven't been banned in this country and the Constitution, as well as politics, makes it clear that they won't be banned next year, or any year.

Yet that has done nothing to curb your begging for an "assault weapon" and .50 caliber ban. Nor has it done anything to stop you from supporting every standing gun ban in the country, like Chicago's handgun ban for example.

"Don't doubt for a minute that, if they thought they could get away with it, they would ban guns and ban ammunition and gut the Second Amendment."

Sarah didn't lie. Reinstating the "assault weapons" ban was part of Obama's Urban Policy. He also voted to ban "armor piercing" ammunition.

Seems like Sarah is pretty much on target.

It's not fearmongering when it's true. The intentions of anti-gunners are well known. Whether they can achieve their goals is another matter, but their goals are obvious.

Of course, depending upon audience they'll deny their intentions in order to appear "moderate"

Anytime someone tries to tell me anti's just want "reasonable controls" I refer them to "Brady II" the gun-banners wet dream that they tried to pass in the 90's.
