Assault rifles and high-capacity clips are and should be covered by the Second Amendment. If we as a people ever need to overthrow our government, .22 caliber six-shooters isn’t going to get the job done. Obama and his supporters know this, and that’s why they’re pushing for these reforms so hard. I really wish we could ask George Washington what he thinks about these proposed reforms.

What irritates me even more than the ignorance of the above issue is the private seller thing. If I own something, and I don’t want it anymore, I should have the right to sell it. In Obama’s world, is the only way I have to get rid of a gun I no longer want is to wait around for Kozachik to have another idiotic gun buy-back and get a $50 Safeway gift card?
