    Pennsylvania governor: "There's no rational reason we should allow people to possess semiautomatic assault weapons."

    Lawmakers are trying to use the ongoing drug war in Mexico to build momentum to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, the head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) alleged Sunday.

    “They’re trying to piggyback this whole issue on the back of this tragic issue in Mexico,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre argued Sunday morning on CBS.

    LaPierre appeared on "Face the Nation" alongside Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D), a gun-control advocate, who called for the reinstatement of the ban, particularly in light of the shooting deaths of three Pittsburgh police officers earlier this month.

    “There’s no rational reason we should allow people to possess semiautomatic assault weapons,” Rendell said. “I think the crime itself would have happened, but I think one officer, at least, would still be alive.”

    LaPierre emphasized traditional NRA arguments that local authorities need to focus more on enforcing existing gun laws, and that reinstating the assault weapons ban would lead toward greater gun regulations.

    “There is no functional difference at all between any of these so-called assault weapons… and any other gun,” the gun lobby chief said, warning that new regulations could lead to the criminalization of pump-action shotguns and some handguns.

    The exchange, heated at times, ended on an odd note, with Rendell agreeing to ramp up prosecutions for violent criminals if LaPierre assented to a new gun rule.

    “We’ll do that,” Rendell said of the prosecutions office. “But also, let’s you and I agree that the Congress can pass a law saying you can buy only one handgun a month.”

    “That’s 12 a year,” the Pennsylvania governor said. “Who in God’s name needs 12 guns a year?”

    Typical (D) response.

    I have the perfect solution to the guns going to Mexico:

    HIRE MORE BORDER PATROL OFFICERS TO GUARD THE DAMN BORDER.

    I'd still like to know which WalMart or gun show is selling those fully automatic AK-47's that Hillary said are supposedly being bought up here by the drug lords - I want one!!!

    Those are already illegal to own or sell unless they were documented to be in Civilian hands before 1984 or whenever - Plus, they're VERY expensive at a gun show, if they even have one.

    Why pay $15,000 for a fully-automaticAK-47 at a gun show, when they can buy them South of Mexico or in the Mid-East for $100 each? It amazes me that people are actually dumb enough to believe all that shit that the Obama Administration is floating to the news media.

    The Border Patrol can't keep out who they are supposed to keep out.

    Fuck wasting their time on the minescule amount of weapons that flow south. The weapons used by the cartels in Mexico do not come from the US to begin with.

    I'm in hope that if they guard the border in one direction, they'll also guard it in the other direction.

    Ditto on the guns not coming from the US-Their favorite is the AK-47, and they're made in Eastern Europe, China, South America, etc - So that's probably where they come from.

    I gather the good Lord favors the optimists.

    Frankly, I think the Border Patrol should be replaced with rotating Army and Marine units as they train to rotate into OIF and OEF.

    Thank you Gov. Ed Rendell (D)umbass of Pennsylvania.
    You highlight the point of why every cent of my NRA membership fee is money well spent.
    Thanks again

    Understand that Rendell is one of the dimmer bulbs of the Democrats. The boy is so crooked that they will need a corkscrew to bury him.

    His statements do not surprise me.
