Kerry is a phony! Touts gun he seeks to ban!

This guy Kerry is such a phony. Virtually everything he says is a lie of one sort or another. He's the one who dredged up the Vietnam issues, claiming to be a war hero. He was no hero. He showed up. So what. So did thousands of others.

Now he's sporting a gun he received as a gift that fits the description of the bill he co-sponsored to ban such guns.

His photo-op is supposed to make Americans think he's a good ol' Joe and friend of the average gun owner. Bull$#%^!!

He and his liberal crowd in Congress are supporting the so-called 'Assault Weapons' Ban. But anyone with two or more functioning brain cells knows it's just a smoke screen to crack the surface and eventually ban all guns. They will 'common sense' us to death, step-by-step, until they have eliminated private ownership of guns altogether.

Make no mistake. You can't support partial freedom of the Second Amendment. Either you support it or you don't. There is no in-between. To paraphrase the words of Volitaire, "I may disagree with your need to own a semi-automatic gun, but I will defend to the death your right to own it."

The Second Amendment doesn't split hairs. It says 'Government, keep your mitts off.'

Stop and think for one minute. Who is it that wants to ban guns? The socialists. The elitists. Dare I say it, the Communists. They think they know what's good for you more than you do. They want to control you. They want to control every aspect of your life.

But they can't control everyone until they can disarm everyone, because, thankfully there are some people out there that won't take the crap they're trying to dish out forever.

Whether you agree with ownership of certain types guns or not, you have to look at the bigger picture and understand the purpose of government. Its purpose is to control you. The Founding Fathers knew that. But they also knew that the States needed a national government to oversee disputes between the States and keep an eye outward for foreign enemies. So they created a Federal government. BUT they did everything they could to keep the ultimate power in the hands of The People, not the government.

Government performs some necessary tasks, no doubt. But government is not your friend. It is not your keeper and you should never allow them to assume all aspects of your care and survival because if you do you, even by a small amount, you will be sacrificing freedoms for your children later on.

Freedom now. Freedom forever.

KERRY COSPONSORED BILL BANNING GUN HE WAVES

Was Dem presidential hopeful John Kerry seen this weekend waving a gun which would have been banned if legislation he co-sponsored became law?

Kerry co-sponsored S. 1431 last year (“The Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2003) which would have banned a "semiautomatic shotgun that has a pistol grip.”

Opponents of the bill successfully argued how nearly all guns have "pistol grips," inluding millions of Browning Auto-5 shotguns produced since 1903.

Photos show Kerry's hand resting on the "pistol grip," as loosely defined in the bill. [Section SEC. 2; (H) (ii) and (b)(42): "The term 'pistol grip' means a grip, a thumbhole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip."]

Kerry was presented with the semiautomatic shotgun during a Labor Day stop in Racine, West Virginia.

"I thank you for the gift, but I can't take it to the debate with me," Kerry told a cheering crowd as he held up the device.

But Kerry's gun bill would have also banned any "gift" transaction!

[It is not clear if Kerry completed the required paperwork (Form 4473) before he claimed the gun.]
