    Was Dem presidential hopeful John Kerry seen this weekend waving a gun which would have been banned if legislation he co-sponsored became law?

    Kerry co-sponsored S.1431 last year (“The Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2003) which would have banned a "semiautomatic shotgun that has a pistol grip.”

    Kerry was presented with the gun during a Labor Day stop in Racine, West Virginia.

    "I thank you for the gift, but I can't take it to the debate with me," Kerry told a cheering crowd as he held up the device.

    [Kerry's gun bill would also ban any "gift" transaction. Kerry did not submit to a waiting period or background check before he claimed the gun.]

    Photos show Kerry's hand resting on the semiautomatic shotgun's "pistol grip."

    Kerry's bill would ban millions of semi-automatics, including those with "pistol grips." [Section SEC.2: (H) (ii) ]

    Opponents of the bill successfully argued how nearly all guns have "pistol grips," inluding millions of Browning Auto-5 shotguns produced since 1903.

    "I thank you for the gift, but I can't take it to the debate with me,"

    What does Kerry mean by that? Why would he want to bring a gun to the debates?

    Isn't that a reckless statement? Columbine-like?
