The Cartridge Family

This won't be another rant.  20+ kids die during a shooting rampage carried out with a Bushmaster AR-15 and some handguns and the nations swiftly moves to outlaw assault weapons.  This only a year after Fast and Furious in which our very own Attorney General Eric Holder used our government organizations which are funded through tax payers to sell guns to Mexican gangs (apparently 28,000 gang related deaths wasn't enough for the US).  The country found out about it and in a effort to learn more, asked for the government documents relating to Fast an Furious.

Now, we live in a country where we are told (and that seems to be where it stops) that the people own the government, not the other way around.  So where was the outrage when one of the guns US Attorney General Eric Holder has sold the Mexican gangs killed a US Boarder agent?  People have been bitching and moaning about our boarders and when one of the guards dies and the President of The United States, whom at the time was Barack Obama, seals the documents under Executive Order, no one says a peep.  More concern over the replacement American Idol judges.

So, the AR-15 in CT was enough to pass the one restriction that will be cited as precedent going forward when they come for our hand guns and shotguns.  It's a shame how fair-weathered the citizens are in the greatest nation in the world (still no stats to back that up). 

Remind yourself, at no point was Homer Simpson ever a reflection of a real gun owner, let along an average American though both could probably be successfully argued.
