The Truth About Guns - This is not 1994 A very long but informative read that gives an accounting of the AWB of 1994 versus the attempt that will be made tomorrow. I'll insert my usual disclaimer that gun owners should never be complacent but the bills being proposed are unlikely to pass and now is the time for cool heads and not panic. All the same, please read through this article to understand how the landscape has changed since the original AWB and why things are not as dire as some are making them out to be. I have no doubts that Obama and the usual suspects would love to ban all guns and will take their shots where they can. However, the ability to introduce a broad bill like in the Clinton era will not be done simply and not without great political cost. Obama may not be up for reelection but many Democrats will be facing the voters in 2014 and 2016. For that matter, any Republican even thinking about a compromise needs to be sent packing.
