Another Clinton Gun Ban Failure

July 30, 2004

Child Shot with Assault Weapon

This week a 12 year old Fremont Ohio boy was shot at a family gathering while playing "war" with assault rifles. According to the News Messenger, police say there were over 30 different types of weapons seized.

As the Government ignors the loss of life and injury from these weapons, Ohioans and Ohio law enforcement continue to ask for strengthening and renewal of the Federal Assault Weapon Ban before it expires on September 13.

"This child should have been protected. We hope for his recovery from his physical wounds and hope he can also survive the trauma of the violence" said Toby Hoover, Executive Director of the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence. "Ohio gun owners and non-gun owners alike do not want military-style weapons in our neighborhoods."

Unless President Bush and Congress act, the federal ban on semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips will expire on September 13, 2004.

"Ohioans deserve action to ban these weapons. We all want to know why someone can have 30 weapons to play 'war' in their homes. These weapons put all of us at risk" said Hoover. "It is past time for the President and Congress to ban all assault weapons. Not to do so is an assault on all of us."

Uh, wouldn't it have made a bit more sense for them to try and exploit this incident if

the legislation they praise hadn't already been in effect for ten years when this incident occurred?

It is a true sign of the desperation of these gun ban extremists when they attempt to exploit the exact type of incident they promised ten years ago would be wiped out by passage of the Clinton Gun Ban.

The great social experiment called "gun control" is a failure, and even the Brady Campaign is now reduced to exploiting stories which prove it.
