If The NRA Knew The Truth About Ronald Reagan, They Probably Wouldn't Invoke His Name So Much

Back in the day, Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford joined up with Democratic President Jimmy Carter to write a letter to our congresscritters demanding they pass an assault weapons ban.  (This really happened.) I'm not naive enough to think banning assault weapons would solve all our problems. Neither were these former presidents.

Many conservative gun owners know this.

Ronald Reagan took a practical approach to gun control which is why the NRA does use him. The problem is not with trying to ban assualt weapons it is with trying to rewrite the definition of assualt weapons. There will be a certain precentage of the population who believe that any ban is wrong. Yet, no one is yelling that the tommy gun is illegal. However, the current bill being considered greatly increases what is considered an assualt weapon to include many hand guns and long guns. 

Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.
