Kerry Asks Bush to Extend Assault Weapons Ban

Via Yahoo News we find that Kerry wants Bush to not let the AWB sunset.

Campaigning in Missouri, where he trails Bush in opinion polls less than two months before the Nov. 2 election, Kerry said as a hunter and outdoorsman he would never try to change the Second Amendment to the Constitution giving Americans the right to bear arms.

It is to laugh. The cheeseball from Massachusetts goes on to use a scare tactic, like Cheney was accused of:

“I don't think we need to make the job of terrorists any easier,” the Massachusetts senator said.

And he tries to claim that the AWB has no real effect on gun owners:

“I mean, heavens to Betsy folks, we've had that law on the books for the last 10 years and there's not a gun owner in America who can stand up and say they tried to take my guns away,” he told a town hall meeting in St. Louis. “I mean, let's get real. Let's get real.”

The condescending sap obviously hasn't tried to buy full capacity magazines, or rifles appropriate to high-power competition, or even my little Beretta 84F, has he?

Even at face value, Kerry fails the gun owners' test badly.
