Democratic Platform Calls for More Gun Control, Omits Awkward Reference to “What Works in Chicago”

While many were focused on the controversy of initially omitting God and Jerusalem in the Democratic platform, language that affirms the Obama administration’s ‘death by a thousand cuts’ strategy for the Second Amendment went largely unnoticed. This year’s platform relating to the Second Amendment reads:

We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation. We understand the terrible consequences of gun violence; it serves as a reminder that life is fragile, and our time here is limited and precious. We believe in an honest, open national conversation about firearms. We can focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially strengthening our background check system, and we can work together to enact commonsense improvements – like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole – so that guns do not fall into the hands of those irresponsible, law-breaking few.

    Don’t the idiots realize that there is no way to enforce gun control. They sure have a short memory about when the government tried to take away the peoples booze.

    I wish I could say no limets to who carrys what weapon but we must have a limet. Today we can not have folks carrying a suitcase full of nukes, but I have no problem with everyone including former felons carrying a gun.
    As an excop let me mention two fellons I think of as frinds.one sold MJ and the other flew a load to Oak City. Both peaceful and nither offered any resistance when cought. The pilot was one of the very few real cowboys left. Now he rides the range alone and is not allowed the protection of a rifle agenst rabid coyotes or rattle snakes.
    If a man is good enough to be out of jail he is good enough tto be a citizen, otherwise do not allow him to have a rock, Rope, rolled up newspaper or buy bug spray.
