Every law should be met with the question: how will this law stop the criminal misuse of guns that current laws do not?
It's hard to align my progressive lenses and the targets at 25-30 feet so I've just been practicing putting as many down range hits in the main mass, and then at the head when the paper target gets so torn you can't tell where you hit. I think I could do this without my glasses now. At a pace that approaches better a shot/second, sometimes a lot better than that when I can get away with rapid fire at the range.
That's what I call gun control.
I got a phone call yesterday from the NRA, with a Wayne L. recording that was just extreme scare tactics. I think that a lot of the panic buying is being fueled by the NRA.
If ammo taxes or fees are put in place, my expectation is that the House will tie them to wildlife, hunter safety training, gun safety training in schools, and a host of things. Since I reload most of my ammo and since it is not that hard to learn, I really don't see the fed’s getting too carried away unless they want to turn reloading into the “new bootlegging.”
If he intends to sieze absolute power, he has only a few years left to do so. Look for an all-out assault, soon.
this and other recent stories site garbage data about the increase of “gun violence” among 10-19 yr. olds, as a reason for more gun control.
Which state’s laws currently allow handgun purchases by 10-19 yr, olds?
Looks like the black market for ammo is going to be tremendous.
Gun control is not the same thing as gun violence. Today, in the US, we have over 20,000 active gun control laws on the books and there isn't a single one of them that will prevent the next gun-related crime.
Humans tend to be violent, at times and, when they have one of those times, they will grab anything they can use as a weapon. If we outlaw private gun ownership, it will be knives, baseball bats, bows and arrows, big chunks of wood, large rocks or pieces of concrete . . . . When someone is angry enough to attempt to kill another, ANY item can become a lethal weapon. If they ban guns, where will the bans ultimately stop??
Laws are created to control law abiding citizens. Criminals are also called "outlaws" because they they don't comply with the law. So, this is a continued attack on our freedoms by leftists who 1) hate the Constiution, 2) hate freedom for anyone but themselves and 3) want more control over the rest of us. Right now, the only thing that separates us from the Egyptians (and Morsi) is that we have a lot of guns and ammo and will (if necessary) use them to fend off any attempt to destroy our Second Amendment right.
Our Founders are currently apoplectic over the corrupt government that our career elected representatives have perverted the system they so carefully and thoughtfully created.
There aren’t really any “cheap handguns” out there anymore. Even the junk costs money.
Our daily offer to anyone so inclined remains outstanding:
Come and get them.
If Obama believes so much in gun control, he can start by setting the example by giving up his SS protective detail.
What would the anti-gunners do if deprived of the ability to lie?
The so-called "assault weapons" law did not address "assault rifles" in any manner whatsoever. "Assault rifle" is a military term which describes an automatic (or select-fire, which includes full automatic or burst capability) weapon using an intermediate size cartridge.
"Assault weapon" is a political term used to describe military-looking semi-automatic rifles and has been used purposely to confuse the issue and allow the government to outlaw rifles because they have a bayonet lug (not even a bayonet), a pistol-grip, a folding-stock, or some other feature which is absolutely irrelevant to whether the firearm is more or less deadly.
Yet in his first term, Mr. Obama did nothing to cross the gun lobby,
Ahem does Guns for Gangsters ring a bell?
Not to mention the UN gun grab treaty
. But who counting, right?
The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the colonists.
Seems fitting that it ends with the colonists demanding to be disarmed.
Watch for Chris Tingles & Retchie MadCow to start using code when referring to gun rights advocates: “those people”, “not our kind of people”, “bitter clingers”, “old white men”, etc. Also increasing numbers of Freudian references to inadequacy & projection.
“The chair is against the wall.”
“Mr. Obama is free of the pressures of campaigning - and free to lead the nation toward sensible laws that can help reduce the flood of guns and related homicides.”
Hmm, I wonder if the author knows the double meaning behind that sentence.
Just wanted to clear up this "assault" weapon thingy. I may be mistaken and way off base, of course, so please step up and educate me.
Taking guns from private citizens might be an easier sell for Idi Obama if he were willing to relinquish all weapons he has in his possession, including those he surrounds himself and his 3 bit**** with. The Kenyan vulture wants it all. His desire is to selectively eliminate all opposition and if he can use all of his weaponry against an unarmed force, he will solidify total control. How is Bo any different than Idi Amin and Robert Mugabe?
