Political reactions

Diane Feinstein proposes gun confiscation. Cuomo says confiscation could be an option. Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in. Well, come and get them.

A newer, just as useless assault weapons ban proposed in CT, which already had one. And didn’t stop a shooting. A 50% tax on ammo and a ban on online ammo sales too.

Hey, let’s ban knives too!

PA governor says no to gun control.

Mayors Against Guns says Demand a Plan. Remind your mayor that Bloomy is signing his/her name to these things.

    This from the Mayors against Guns petition site:

    4. CALL OUR LEADERS
    Call President Obama and your members of Congress and demand a plan to end gun violence

    Seems to say it all. Sorry but they are not our leaders but our representatives.

    “Mandatory Buyback”… How is that significantly different from “confiscation”?

    Or, as I commented on FB this morning:

    “Disarming otherwise law-abiding citizens and banning scary-looking weapons will not prevent the another Sandy Hook. No engineer would would attempt such an outside-in approach to such a problem; there are over 80 million gun owners and at least 250 million guns in America. A tiny fraction are used in crime. An equally tiny fraction could be used in an inside-out approach to making schools safer.”

    Upon further reflection, maybe I should have said: “A tiny fraction are used in crime. An equally tiny even-tinier fraction could be used in an inside-out approach to making schools safer.”

    Meh. “Strike” does not equal “strikeout”.

    Make that “A tiny fraction are used in crime. An equally tiny even-tinier fraction could be used in an inside-out approach to making schools safer.”

    “But if Congress balks at banning certain weapons entirely, it could make gun owners an offer they can’t refuse. Instead of $200 a gun, Uncle Sam might offer $500.”

    Do these people have any idea what the f**k they’re talking about? You can barely get a sporter-type Saiga for $500, if I remember pre-surge prices correctly. And where are we going to get all of this money from anyway? Aren’t we sort of already broke?

    Thankfully, I doubt anything confiscation-ish can pass. An AWB with a grandfather clause has a shot. A confiscation bill doesn’t. I don’t think they’re THAT stupid.

    They’ll take what they can get. They’ll start with confiscating everything hotter than a paintball gun, and “compromise” it down to something they can pass. We lose. Then they’ll be back and do the same next session. Just like the old “leftward ratchet”.

  7. Firehand Says:

    Somebody on another blog compared such a ‘forced buyback’ to Cash for Clunkers; I pointed out that the .gov wouldn’t send armed people to arrest you, and kill you if you resisted, for not selling them your clunker.
    And let’s not pretend otherwise: they can call it a ‘forced buyback(how do you ‘buy back’ something you never had?) but it’s still confiscation under threat of force.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
