It's unfortunate that the current crop of GOP candidates seem to be more
concerned with ripping each other new ones rather than concentrating on the issues. Sure they make a few comments
here and there during debates but it's more mudslinging than anything else...which has been the status quo for the last several elections.
Also, A$$Holder's comment gets the B.S. flag thrown:
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has said the Obama administration "has consistently favored the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban. It is something that we think was useful in the past with regard to the reduction that we've seen in crime and certainly would have a positive impact on our relationship and the crime situation in Mexico."
