JPFO Alert on the bipartisan nature of the Assault Weapons Ban & the 'High' Capacity Magazine ban

"Two facts to consider:
[1] Clilnton, Schumer, Feinstein, and their gun-prohitibionist allies in Congress weren't the first to ban useful semi-auto rifles and pistols. They were inspired by George Bush, Sr., who earlier (mis)used his executive order power to ban importation of many similar weapons.
[2] The ban on high-capacity magazines that was part of the 1994 crime bill (the bill that gave us the "assault weapons" ban) was also not originated by Democrats. It was the brainchild of firearms manufacturer Bill Ruger and was first supported by -- yes, President George Bush, Sr. "
