reauthorizing the assault weapons ban, and closing the gun show loophole, as President Bush proposed and failed to do.
So, they plan on protecting our Second Amendment rights by infringing on our right to own guns? And, of course, they have a desire to close a non-existent loophole. Transactions at gun shows undergo the same procedures for dealers as they do at a gun shop.
