So this bill is to neuter any attempt at a ban?

Yea right!

SEC. 2. RESTRICTION ON MANUFACTURE, TRANSFER, AND POSSESSION OF CERTAIN SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPONS.

‘(v)(1) It shall be unlawful for a person to manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon.

Kirk said when he ran for Congress in 1999, he opposed the federal assault weapons ban expiration in September 2004. He said he's backed legislation since then to reinstate it, and this year went even further by introducing his own.

"I was surprised because the Democrats control Congress, and yet 18 months after taking office they have yet to approve this legislation and that's why I introduced my own bill," he said.
No surprise... just like I said, McCain and these so-called Republicans will gut us from the inside worse than obama could ever do.

Republicans or Democrats.... they are the same... the enemy is all around us... at this point we need to call an air strike on our own coordinates.

You are so wrong saying that McCain is just as bad as obama you had better wake up and smell the coffee obama is thee most liberal politician to ever run for president granted McCain is no angel but he is far better then the alternative
