[b]KERRY COSPONSORED BILL BANNING GUN HE WAVES[/b]
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 [url=http://www.congress.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d108:SN01431:@@@P]S.1431 last year[/url] (“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."

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