Boy, I feel intimidated now

Remember Congressweasel Swalwell telling the world they’d just nuke gun owners who didn’t comply? When he was confronted by a pro gun activist, he tucked tail went running, presumably to his mom.

Russian collusion!

Only not:

Russian citizen Maria Butina pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to conspiring to influence U.S. politics through her connections to the National Rifle Association.

She basically meant some NRA people and attended an annual meeting.

Prosecutors don’t want jurors to know about Operation Fast and Furious:

Operation Fast and Furious is among the most epic boondoggles in the history of federal law enforcement, which probably explains why federal prosecutors dont want jurors in the trial of Sinaloa cartel leader Joaqun El Chapo Guzmn to hear anything about it.

Fast and Furious was intended as a sting operation by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms to bust gun-runners and straw purchasers along the border. But it ultimately led to American firearms being sent to Mexican cartels and later linked to murders, including the fatal shootings of a Border Patrol agent in 2010 and an ICE agent in 2011.

Altogether, the ATF lost track of about 2,000 weapons, some of which ended up in the hands of El Chapos Sinaloa cartel. Most notably, after El Chapo was captured following a shootout in the city of Los Mochis in 2016, a Barrett .50-caliber rifle linked to Fast and Furious was found inside the drug lords hideout.

That genie is never going back in the bottle

HR 7115 is a proposed bill to ban the 3D printing of firearms. It also bans the 80% market:

(1) A firearm receiver casting or firearm receiver blank or unfinished handgun frame that

(A) at the point of sale does not meet the definition of a firearm in section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code; and

(B) after purchase by a consumer, can be completed by the consumer to the point at which such casting or blank functions as a firearm frame or receiver for a semiautomatic assault weapon or machinegun or the frame of a handgun.

It also bans what is termed assault weapon parts kit (whatever that is) and machinegun parts kit.

To avoid another bump stock type decision

ATF will no longer issue accessories classifications. All accessories must be attached to a firearm.

Racism, straight up

Michael Bloomberg wants to ban guns for minorities for their own good.

Where guns are banned

Shrinking government

The IRS is being gutted

The EPA is getting out of the puddle business.

As far as I’m concerned, both of those are good news.

Good question

What’s going on at NRA?

At some point, an organization can get so large that it’s a hindrance. Do they really need 76 board members?

Shrunk down mini-gun seems redundant.

Respect

I don’t have any particular nostalgia for the politics of Bob Dole. But as a person, he seems like a good guy. He’s funny and not afraid of self-deprecating humor. He was a war hero. He always seemed to be a class act. And, at 95 years of age, he’s still a class act:

There will be no reciprocity coming the lame duck congress. And I doubt congress will ever take up the issue.
