But they did ban alcohol once!! Look how well that went! The Kennedy's got rich from it! And then became gun haters.Yep, Drunk Drivers kill thousands of people each year yet I hear no one calling for a ban on cars or alcohol. Of course banning guns has nothing to do with keeping people safe. It's all about the government having more control over people. A disarmed society is easier to push around. That's why our Founding Fathers put the 2A in the Constitution in the first place, they didn't want the government to every have the upper hand over the people ever again.
