If you haven't seen this video of Senator Dianne Feinstein, author of both the original Assault Weapons Ban and the currently proposed AWB, speaking about how she armed herself and, "made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me".
See, guns are only for those people who are responsible enough to own them - and gun owners aren't those people. Only Senator Feinstein can determine who is responsible enough. Since she can't judge each person individually, it's better if none of us have weapons.
This is must see video for everyone out there - hypocrisy at it's finest:
