    From "Bullet Points" the online newsletter of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a great job of laying out the primary differences in the Democratic and Republican positions on gun control. We're borrowing, but giving them credit for good work that's beneficial to any firearms owner.

    The Democratic Platform: "We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, but we know that what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne. We can work together to enact and enforce commonsense laws and improvements -- like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system, and reinstating the assault weapons ban ..." (Democratic Platform Page 48)

    The Republican Platform: "We condemn frivolous lawsuits against firearms manufacturers, which are transparent attempts to deprive citizens of their rights. We oppose federal licensing of law-abiding gun owners and national gun registration as violations of the Second Amendment. We recognize that gun control only affects and penalizes law-abiding citizens, and that such proposals are ineffective at reducing violent crime." (Democratic Platform, Page 51).

    Translation: "Reasonable regulation" to a liberal means "gun prohibition". My proof? When we heard constantly from anti-gunners that the 1994 gun ban was "reasonable" and "common sense".
