Tell Me It Ain't So, Joe!

I am speechless, I am in shock that President Bush would be a Gun Control Freak!!
A District of Columbia gun-control law struck down by a federal court has won surprise support from the Bush administration.

On Friday, U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement urged the Supreme Court to rule that the Second Amendment right to bear arms is not absolute and is limited and subject to "reasonable regulation" by the government and that all federal restrictions on firearms should be upheld, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The problem with Gun Control is, as it is with any control by the Gov't, that it may start off reasonable, but who is to say that reasonable people will stay in power, and the unreasonable will not place draconian restrictions ala Washington DC?

Do I believe that private citizens should own fully automatic machine guns? No, but I also believe that private citizens should be allowed to own handguns, rifles, and shotguns for hunting and home defense, and the problem with Gun Control freaks is that they don't believe that, and always want more restrictions.

I am very disappointed in the Bush Administration for their arguing this case at the Supreme Court in favor of DC's law, very disappointed. And I pray we elect a true conservative to the White House this year, otherwise, we will see more control laws, not less.
