Funny conversation at work about the assault weapons ban

I was just overhearing that the assault weapons ban ends tonight. Some folks at my office were talking about this.

I was surprised to learn that now, with the Clinton assault weapons ban expiring, it will be perfectly legal at midnight to purchase fully automatic weapons, complete with grenade launchers and silencers, and unlimited capacity magazines.

Your co-workers engage in hyperbole much?

The dems decided to cave to the Trial lawyer lobby and gave up pressing for the continuation of the ban when the republicans submitted a ammendment to the bill that would exempt gun mfgrs from civil liability when someone decideds to sue the gun mfgr when someone kills someone with a gun.

I really have not heard any news the past couple of days; is there an attempt to extend the ban being put forth today?

I knew that effort had died, but I also knew that Bush said he would be in favor of extending it. So I thought there was a possibility something might occur on that end.

I need to find that thread where I told BD I had a bizarre gut feeling that said Bush just might let this slide.....

The effort by a few gun-grabbing liberals failed due to the rest of them being beholden, as someone else said, to the trial lawyers' lobby.

Lawsuits = good for lawyers.

Actually, and Im going from memory, but the Senate passed something, but the House didnt act or passed something totally different and it died in conference.

Nothing was sent to the President to my knowledge.
