Are gun owners so naïve as to buy Christie's recent 'pro-gun' conversion?

Christie is clearly banking on the hope that gun owners are dumb enough to be fooled by his nominally "pro-gun" actions of late, and it appears, inexplicably, that his bet might actually pay off. If gun owners allow him to win the Republican presidential primary, they will get what they deserve. Unforgivably, though, the rest of us will get what they deserve, as well. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

Most politicians are elitist, and both Republicans and Democrats think that you are stupid. Christie and Hillary Clinton will both make token pro-2A speeches when campaigning in red states, and both will advocate "common sense gun control" laws and "assault weapons bans" while campaigning in blue states. And they think that most voters are gullible enough to fall for it.

They also think that sportsmen (hunters, skeet shooters) are stupid enough to fall for their divide-and-conquer tactics: "We just want to ban evil military assault weapons, not your antique shotguns." Yeah. Right. If you believe that, send me $10,000, and I will pay you back with interest after I get my assets unfrozen. I am a Nigerian prince. Or something.

And I'm tired of the term "assault weapon." John Wilkes Booth used a single-shot pistol to "assault" (and, in fact, murder) President Lincoln, and a lot of serial killers (Jack the Ripper, the Boston Strangler, the Hillside Strangler, the Skid Row Slasher) did not use guns at all. The terrorists in Boston used a pressure cooker. Do we need laws banning (or limiting) kitchen utensils and cooking appliances?

And Korean grocers in Los Angeles used those evil "high capacity assault weapons" to defend themselves during the Rodney King riots.

Assault is a type of behavior, not a type of hardware.
