quote: At a meeting, two firearms experts came forward to speak, bringing with them two common Ruger 10/22 rifles that had been cleared by security. The purpose of their presentation was to explain how the gun-control laws currently being proposed would outlaw only a gun’s cosmetic features while not affecting the functionality of the firearms in any measurable way in terms of rate of fire and accuracy.
In the video, DFL legislators simply arise and exit without explanation. They avoid learning details from the presentation about the very firearms they seek to legislate out of existence.

I think it is fear. If they suspend kids for posseeeing paper guns, hello kitty (registered TM) bubble machines, or kids making a gun with their thumb and pointy man, think what coming face to face with a real weapon does.
