Skip to comments.Gun Control Advocates in Hysterics over Fading Chances of Legislation
Posted on 05/04/2013 8:38:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Gun control advocates are in hysterics, using frenzied, emotional attacks against Senators who opposed gun control last month in hopes of changing the momentum.
This explains why Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has been targeted in New Hampshire, and it's why Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly have been targeting Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in Kentucky.
Staunch gun control supporters saw Sandy Hook Elementary as their opportunity to secure more gun laws, but now they see that opportunity fading away....

Gun control may be shut down at the federal level, but many of the states are killing us.
The momentum is on the side of the people & their Constitutional rights... at least for now.
Extremist Commie/fascist gun grabbers, all.
A clever move on the part of Barry’s gun Nazis. All of these individual anti-Second Amendment gun confiscations laws being passed by the Nazis in each of the individual states are going to be tied up in the courts for the next hundred years. Never underestimate the commies and Nazis. They’re not as dumb as they look and act.
In many respects I am pessimistic about this country’s future — but I think gun control is dead. Between 3-D printers, and states like Kansas moving to effectively nullify federal gun laws, I think the ship has sailed and we have won that topic. There will not be a do-over.
There will need to be a grass roots ammo mfg infrastructure.
Besides CO, NY and CT, any other states pass anti-2a laws yet?
They can only hope for another mass shooting.
Those are the worst, but I believe a few other already strict states have or are adding more laws. These states have clearly violated even the weakest interpretation of the 2A.
California has several bills working their way through, and with a governor named moonbeam, and an extremely liberal state legislature it doesn’t look good. One would require people to buy a permit to buy ammo. Another would make it illegal to possess a mag that can hold more than 10 rounds. Yet another would prevent gun ownership for a DUI conviction. There are more, but that is what I remember off the top of my head. I am so sick and tired of these tyrants.
Washington State Governor the doofus Jay Inslee has called a special session to address gun control, but I do believe it is DOA no matter how many times he calls special sessions...we’ll recall the guv before we’ll see any new gun laws, IMHO.
I think Maryland is about to crank out their anti freedom legislation in the race to the bottom.
“There will need to be a grass roots ammo mfg infrastructure.”
I remember in the Philippines and Vietnam when in the service and I know that here and there in the U.S., if there is a need, a supply will surface. Call it a black market, call it smuggling, call it what you will, the need will be met if the money is there.
need to spend Fri. and Sat. nights on the South side of Chicago grabbing guns.
People have been making firearms since the 1600s. Give me lead, sulfur, iron ore, coal or enough trees to make charcoal out of, and I can make a firearm and ammo starting from that.
I really don't need the lead, since the first projectiles were stones.
Since I'm living in the 21st century, my lathe and milling machine in the shop behind the house will work just fine.
It's not rocket science.
With enough garages pounding out brass, pouring lead and doing assembly, we can get through this.
Well, between removing the S from Diesel and now, soon, gasoline, there should be no domestic shortage of inexpensive S for the foreseeable future.
I'll bet I can find it in nature without too much trouble.
The next Allahu Ahkbar with a gun instead of a bomb will bring out all the gun control bills once more. The issue will never go away. 2A is the only thing that prevents an outright police state, instead of the semi-covert one in which we live.
If I may make an analogy -- I do not have a lot of artistic skill, but using my simple laserjet printer, I can print a copy of da Vinci's "Mona Lisa". I push the button, and there she is.
With a 3-D printer, any schmuck can push a button have a gun. That's a gamechanger.
The ability is out there. I'm just a friggin cook. I've got an uncle who is a genius on machine tools.
They can whine, they can complain, but they really, really can't ever stop it once the knowledge is out there.
In the long run, I think truth and freedom will win.
Hell, they've probably already planned the next one.
Any idea what they are up to? Haven’t heard anything in about a month.
There is no such thing as a “gun control advocate” just like there are no “moderate muslims”, there are only hysterical radicals with no reasoned argument who are willing to let people be slaves or die to reach their goal.
The antis have recently started running attack ads in New Hampshire going after Ayotte on his vote.
Sort of “man (and woman) in the street” fakes, featuring a series of extremely pathetic-looking arscholes relating why they don’t like Ayotte for his principled stance.
Very sad business. The *ssclowns featured all look like they just wandered in off the commune looking for someplace to wash up.
Or New Yorkers (like what happened to Burlington Vt).
I think SCOTUS is in a precarious state of affairs right now.
There’s no margin of error whatsoever when you have four justices that don’t even recognize the 2A.
Then factor in the whims of Kennedy and the potential for a stab in the back from Roberts and you have a court that doesn’t want to hear these cases. Once it’s decided badly it is much harder to deal with later.
SCOTUS is down the tubes.
Hard to say with certainty, but probably a ninety-five percent chance.
Strangely, the anti-Ayotte spots are playing in Massachusetts, too.
Really? A 3D firearm with a plastic barrel and trigger mechanism?
Just passed no private sale without a background check on the buyer
Kelly Ayotte is a woman.
NH Senator Kelly Ayotte (former NH Att. Gen.):
“The momentum is on the side of the people & their Constitutional rights... at least for now.”
The people need to keep the momentum for the next election and do some house cleaning.
Guess the Democrats will need another “crisis” or two not to “allow to go to waste” before the American people “see the light”.
MSNBC goes non stop on this everyday.
Magpul and HiViz are leaving CO.
Hey libs it’s the loonies that pulls the trigger at our schools and movie theaters not the gun. And guess who the loonies always seem to be ...YOU and your kind. Maybe we need llaws to protect us from libs...!
> They can only hope for another mass shooting.
That will be staged by the 0 administration of course. Life is not sacred to them and they will sacrifice as many innocents as they can in the name of “protecting people from guns”. Steal, kill, and destroy (and lie) are their marching orders and nothing is beneath them.
True, it isn't but it is difficult to imagine the average citizen having the knowledge and the machinery on hand to carry out such a task.
Aren't you perhaps blowing your own horn just a tiny bit?
There are literally millions who can build one better and faster than I can.
Libs think people shouldn’t have guns because, secretly, deep down, THEY KNOW that they themsleves can not be trusted with guns.
Thank you for the correction.
I think I am being realistic. I think about the people I know and have known and there is not a one of them who has the mechanical ability or the inclination to build firearms.
You are assuming that people are in your position, i.e., possessing metalworking machinery and the knowledge as to how to use it.
Also, note that you mentioned having the trees to make charcoal with. Not everyone owns woodlands, you know.
