However, when I heard about it, I predicted that the Left would trot out their same old tired arguments for infringing on the people's right to keep and bear arms, yet again. I was correct, not that that was a difficult prediction to make.
In a story in tomorrow's Star-Tribune, their Washington bureau reports that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have called on chairman Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI, to take "immediate committee action" in response. Their proposals consist mainly of "enhanced child safety guards on guns, closing of gun law “loopholes,” renewal of the federal assault weapons ban, and limits on ammunition magazine capacity" - all idiocies we've heard before.
Free clue, folks: Weise's first act was to kill his grandfather - a police officer - and take his weapons and body armor. There's not a single proposal from the gun grabbers that would have made the slightest difference, because, as a law enforcement officer, Weise's grandfather would have been exempt from every last one.
Of course, that's just a small detail to the gun grabbers. They're intent on taking away the average citizen's Second Amendment rights, and they don't let minor details like facts get in their way.
