Streets filled with dead bodies. AK-47's everywhere. Death, mayhem, destruction. The usual predictions of the gun fearing weenies were out in force last year when Clinton's gun ban expired.
The truth is somewhat less dramatic.
With the one-year anniversary of the expiration of the ban passing quietly last week, the reality has proved much less grim. The assault-weapons ban went out with a whimper, not a bang.Sarah Brady is still hoping for a ban. All of those horrors are "just around the corner" she fears.
Although precise figures are not available, police in Delaware have not reported an increase in crimes committed with previously banned weapons.
The truth is that this so-called ban never had the slightest impact. "Clinton's own Justice Department came to the conclusion that the ban would have no effect on the criminal use of firearms."
