    Assault Weapons Ban Debate Rekindled -5

    by

    Is there momentum in Congress for a new automatic weapons ban? Certainly, in the wake of the Tucson shootings, some anti-gun legislators vowed to restore the 10-year ban on select semiautomatic firearms and "high-ammo clips" that expired in 2004.

    by

    Don't like being taxed to pay for wasteful government programs? Want to ensure your Second Amendment rights aren't infringed upon? Willing to attend rallies to peacefully and legally demonstrate how important these issues are to you?

    Then you -- yes, you! -- just might be a "terrorist."

    According to bulletins issued to the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security in April and June by the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response, anti-tax and Second Amendment rallies staged in Harrisburg this year warranted "terrorism-alert" warnings.
