Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.
Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.
The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn....

And maybe newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc should suspend writing anything bad about the government?
Which other items from the Bill of Rights does he think free people should give up?
Eleven years ago, when barbarians used knives and airplanes to murder thousands of people in a single morning, was he advocating cessation of sales of knives and airplanes?
Physically and psychologically impossible for the old Schmuckster.
Are you planning to pay the store owners and firearms licensees /dealers for lost business...??
....Didn't think so...
Translation: If you major retailer stop selling, we will make sure those little guys can’t compete with you.
People have been busted in New Jersey for having .22LR lever action rifles with tubular magazines that would hold more than ten .22 short rounds, violating their 10 round magazine limit.
Most semi-sane states that have magazine limits exempt rimfires with tubular magazines.
However, the firearm in your picture is a semi-auto, so it is by FrankenSTEIN and UpChuck's standards an assault weapon.
What about a moratorium an senators selling themselves?
I remember that cheer he was doing.
“Rah Rah Ree - poke ‘em in the knee.
Rah Rah Rass - poke ‘em in the ass.”
I had my chance to leave this he’ll hole and missed it.
Eaten up with our own sense of self-importance, are we, Senator?????. From the STATE of....NY.
Too bad it's none of your go***mned business who sells what product in stores. Now shut up and go scrub my toilets; make yourself useful.
What part of the 2nd Amendment ‘shall not be infringed’ is that putz—like all the rest of his Leftist buddies and molls—trying to game and circumvent in the Constitutional Amendment process now?
Why do you think Walmart was ‘convinced’ to rething their refusal of a tete-a-tete in DC last week?
Why do you think Bank of America pulled their financing from a succussful gun manufaturer for a new facility , even tho’ the company had a spotless credit record?
The despots in DC know their window of rule may be limitied and they are going for broke - and to hell with the rule of law.
We are quickly descending into a WROL society.
I wonder how much of a threat accompanies this message? Don’t suspend sales and things won’t go well for you - love and kisses from the DOJ and the ATF?
Next time there is a stampede at a night club, ban all night club shows until Congress gets a committee together.
Any retailer that complies with this will never receive another dime of my money. I don’t care if I have to drive a hundred miles; I’ll buy in bulk. I don’t care if I have to buy everything online or pay more close to home, I will do so.
I’m not usually one for boycotts, but anyone who allows this weasel to intimidate them is part of the problem.
