This BS is starting to get on my nerves. Rick Moran is not a journalist. Rick Moran isn’t even a blogger. He’s what I call a bookends scribbler. Write an opening paragraph, excerpt someone else’s work for the major portion of your “article” and then write a couple of closing paragraphs.

Hell, anybody could do that.

Hope they don’t pay him very much.

I got notice today that my PINK Ruger 22 LR will be delivered to the gun store sometime this week. I have a 25 magazine for it. I HAVE NO CARTRIDGES YET but they are ordered.

I plan to put the PINK 22 lr on a pink marble topped coffee table for decoration. It should make for interesting conversation if anyone comes to visit. :o)

Is Obama this keyed up with hubris? I don’t think so, but perhaps he is. What was going on that he’d want to waste all this political capital and that the Dems would go along with him knowing this is a political third rail?

Benghazi or something else that we haven’t caught on to yet?

What they’re really after is the universal background check. The Feds have illegally been ignoring the prohibition on maintaining a database of gun owners. No one who has any awareness of this issue thinks that the universal background check is to prevent crime. It is to register guns. And if the New York (Dinkins) and California (Lockyer) registration/confiscation episodes are any indication, you can bet real money that confiscation would be next.

Pulleeezzzeee........ The damn things are magazines. If we are going to debate parts and pieces of firearms at least use the correct terminology. Don’t buy into the crap the liberal media spews.

We are a SCOTUS heart attack away from losing the 2nd amendment. And I hope all of the conservative “crusaders” who stayed home on election night rather than voting for that Northeastern Rino remember that too. There are now four Liberal radicals on the court. One more radical justice and they could rule the 2nd amendment only applies to the “Militia.” This was the most important election in our history, and granted Romney is quite a bit more Liberal than I would prefer, he was a good honest man who in my opinion, would have made a good President.

So if I want to give my rifle to my nephew I have to go to a licensed gun dealer and pay to give it away?

This is about registration.

Damn right. And registration ALWAYS leads to confiscation at some point in time. History shows the proof of this. But in a way, this is a good thing for them to try. Keep the issue boiling at a steady simmer for our side (which includes loads of democrats in some very pro gun states. Keep the reality that the RAT's are gun grabbers front and center in the minds of the people right up till the 2014 election cycle. Then hopefully we'll see a repeat of the 1994 election and gain a firmer grip on the House and take back the Senate. Then, with a veto proof majority we can keep the usurper on the bench till we can take over the Oval, too.

So, whoever was saying the Feinstein Assault Weapons ban was a decoy is obviously the winner...

Apparently they don't get it because they are spending all their time listening to themselves and the media who just repeat what they tell them. I don't think they've taken any interest in listening to real gun owners... the ones who will end their careers next election.


======================= We all know the "assault weapons ban" is nothing short of idiocy and has been proven a waste of time. Same with the magazine bans. Anyone who supports them has questionable motives and every gun owner see's it this way. Anyone who supports these bans is dishonest to say the least.
We keep hearing that "most gun owners support stronger background checks". Well again, BS; and here is why: We know they can't be trusted to keep it honest and simple. We know THEY control the decisions on who gets a green light and who doesn't... and they can change the requirements anytime they like. We also know it's nothing more than disguised registration.
So, what would I support?
- Let us take weapons to an FFL for checks. this does a few good things for sellers and buyers. It gives the seller some peace of mind that the buyer isn't a felon and it gives the buyer the opportunity to check and make sure the gun isn't stolen. Meeting at a gun shop also reduces your risk of getting jacked by some craigslist thug in a dark parking lot. The problem is, the possible risks are just not worth it.
First, it's yet another way for FFL's to rape us for 40 bucks every time we sell a 100 dollar rifle just like they do when they sign for a UPS package for us. It pi#@$es us off!
Second, we don't trust government to purge the record of the names, SSN's and firearm serial numbers as soon as the check is complete. They have proven time and again that they cannot be trusted and cannot keep their promises. We also know THEY control the guidelines for approving the sale. Hell, all they would have to do is classify nail-biters as a public risk (like they already have for Tea Party conservatives) and you are done, no guns for you.
Also, the arbitration process for getting OFF the list is a joke, it can't be done... ask anyone who has tried. It doesn't matter if it's accidental, justified or not.

See, I can tell them what sort of measures I would support, but in the same breath it is important to let them know it can never come to pass because they cannot be trusted; and that's the very reason the Constitution prohibits them from meddling with this right to begin with.

Why is the SERIAL NUMBER and MODEL NUMBER needed for a background check? It seems to me that you should ONLY check the person and be done with it. Nothing is gained with serial and model numbers,UNLESS someone is trying to build up a database for later confiscation (which, of course, our government denies they want to do)

If someone is so unstable they cannot own a gun, why are they still on the street? (with access to cars,gasoline,swords,knives,etc)

That’s true.You just take an adapter that connects the stripper clip to the magazine and push down on the bullets in the stripper clip until the magazine is loaded.Its Great.

Sure beats loading those mags one round at a time.
