The Truth is Out There:
Not matter how hard they try to erase ten years of evidence, the proof that this law belongs on the scrap-heap of history is plain to see.

School shootings at Columbine, Paducah; workplace shootings in Cincy, Cleveland elsewhere; snipers in D.C. and Columbus - all happened while the Clinton gun ban was in full effect, supposedly "protecting" the nation by disallowing law-abiding citizens the ability to purchase certain cosmetically-incorrect semi-automatic firearms.
