I think some of the current turkey guns will fit the discription of an assault weapon. Pistol grip shaped handhold, ported extended chokes in threaded barrels, adjustable tactical stocks etc. I think Obama's adminstration knows where they made errors in the Clinton admin and they have the power and votes to make their adgenda happen. This will just be the start.
If he knew that, and believed it, he wouldn't go near assault weapons or gun legislation in general.
Klinton publicly acknowledged the AWB cost him the House and the Senate just as it will the magic negro.
Hussein is already rubbing the public, his own party and the press the wrong way. He has way over-estimated his much-ballyhooed charisma. I don't think he is going to get the traditional 100 day grace period most presidents get. Dubya never got a break from the day he started campaigning. It's only fair Hussien get a BIG taste of that medicine.
