    What happened to liberals pushing gun control?

    At one point, they pushed it rather strongly. Nowadays its hardly ever brought up.

    If the anti-gun crowd is so right, if their argument is so sound – why pull back from the issue?

    Perhaps they just enjoy watching the NRA types rant?

    Aside from a federal law prohibiting those who are baker acted from posessing firearms I think we have all the gun laws we need.

    I thing they are working the angle of outlawing lead bullets for environmental reasons. They seem to use the EPA to whatever end they want. ;)

    Liberals moved to big cities where we have control. Connies want to shoot it out..fine.

    Have at it.

    40,000 Americans die of gun shot wounds every year.

    Bears are armed. They eat humans too.

    We could do better at enforcing our existing gun laws. Kind of like immigration issues.

    It's a loser. IMO guns should be controlled and the argument for gun control is sound. The issue is emotional, not rational and likely cost Al Gore the election (well that and the USSC).

    ...and most of the crime involving guns. GO figure.

    So why arent you pushing for more gun control?
