Is to a PDF file with 56 pages of text. In this text is the entire 2008 DNC party platform.

On page 43 you find the section titled "Firearms". Here's what it says:

We recognize that the right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americansí continued Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, but we know that what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne. We can work together to enact and enforce common-sense laws and improvements, like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system and reinstating the assault weapons ban, so that guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists or criminals. Acting responsibly and with respect for differing views on this issue, we can both protect the constitutional right to bear arms and keep our communities and our children safe.
The same old tripe, with a new twist. Somehow the libtards think another assault weapons ban will keep "terrorists" from getting guns. WHAT? Amazing stupidity. They were looking for a way to stick "terrorist" in there to scare the sheeple and they decided to put it in that sentence? How is an "assault weapon" ban going to prevent "terrorists" from getting "guns"?

Of course the last sentence is a classic too... it's for the children people. :D
