Kim du Toit has a post up regarding the group Americans for Banning All Guns Gun Safety. The AGS memo reads like a Communist gun grabbing memo, which shouldn't suprise anyone. Kim has four questions for the AGS:

-- 1. Why did you write this position paper for the Democrat Leadership Council (DLC)?
-- 2. Considering that guns purchased at gun shows play an insignificant role in violent crime (fewer than 1% of all guns which feature in criminal activity were found to have been purchased at gun shows), why does the so-called "loophole" bother you so much?
-- 3. Where is "the right to hunt" mentioned in the Bill of Rights?
-- 4. Considering that the rate of accidental death by firearm discharge has been steadily decreasing since 1970, even as more guns have been purchased by individuals, why is "gun safety" so large an issue for you?
-- 4. Why are you so keen to see Democrat politicians elected to office?

Now, I have a few questions of my own, which you can answer or not. I doubt that any democrat is going to see them, much less answer them.

1) Do you or do you not trust the private citizens of this country?
2) Why should any responsible, law abiding citizen be restricted in any way on the subject of firearm ownership?
3) We have approximately 20,000 laws on the books regarding firearms ownership. Why do you think we need more?
4) What constitutes an "Assault Rifle"?

I would love for some gun-grabber to answer those questions.

UPDATE: Mr. Baker of The Smallest Minority informs me that automatic weapons are indeed legal in many states, but they're highly taxed. I think I need to start saving up some money.

And if you haven't checked out The Smallest Minority yet, do so. It's one of the better pro-gun blogs out there, and I've gotten a lot of good info from him.
