    Just too silly not to share, ;)

    A new Nail Gun, made by DeWalt, has just been introduced.

    It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200 yards. This makes construction
    a breeze. You can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence.

    Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back,



    relax with a cold beer and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away.

    With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading.



    After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun,


    the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything again.

    I knew it would happen

    The gun-ban folks are known to be pretty tight with the democrats. The gun-ban folks certainly will take every opportunity they can to get any legislation that will restrict firearm ownership or useage. While working to get elected, Mr.Obama even felt the need to mention at least once in a well-publicized situation his "I wont take your guns away" statement. The NRA is disgustingly tight with the republicans.

    I think that ALL gov't bodies need to do more about reducing crime than making new ones.

    I like to be able to answer my kids in a direct and positive fashion when they ask "What does "free country" mean?"

    OK, hows that for a comment or 2?

    Yeah - the 110th Congress is over. The 111th has started. Bills not voted on by the end of a Congress, get thrown out. So why post about it? It's history.

    FWIW, I think it was a stupid bill; if someone brings it back, during this or another Congress, I'll oppose it.

    That's why it's so silly. You can't really define what makes an "assault" rifle. It's people who know nothing about guns, reacting to how it looks.

    Besides, the fed has no place regulating firearms, that's a state, or maybe city jurisdiction.

    And the legal/constitutional basis for private firearms, is all about their military potential - militias - not recreational or hunting use. If anything, they can regulate everything BUT "assault weapons".


    I honestly think "they" are a minority, even within the dem party, at this point.

    I also think the current admin's too politically savy, or pragmatic, to want to open up that can of worms. Especially when the prez has gone on record, repeatedly, that the fed has no jurisdiction? I doubt they'll want to waste political capital on this one.

    I could be wrong - like I said, if they bring it up again, I'll be opposing it.

    The ammo-laser-ID thing, is much more on my mind, currently. Talk about stupid & impractical? But it seems to be getting traction.

    Gun control is the ability to hit your target...
    Crime control is putting criminals where they belong and keeping them there...

    50 years of gun control laws hasn't stopped crime...

    I'm ready for a new approach!

    It's pretty obvious that criminals don't care about gun laws.

    Insanity: Repeating the same behavoir expecting different results...
