Why are anti-gun activists so violent?
Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday he would introduce a bill that would give District of Columbia residents the ability to get gun permits and visitors from around the U.S. the right to carry concealed weapons while in the nation’s capital.
The bad: his odd refugee stance.
The ugly: Polls.
Harry Reid is still mad that the NRA yanked his endorsement.
Trump is for keeping those on the terror watch list from buying guns. There are over 400,000 of them supposedly. Carson disagrees:
I am a big supporter of the Second Amendment, and I don’t want to deprive people unnecessarily of that. There needs to be better due process
Good for him. A guy called into the Chris Plante show today and claimed to have a carry permit and that he was on the watch list. How does that even square?
Meanwhile, this nonsense about a Muslim database seems to a big bunch of nothing, perpetuated as news.
Wales looking to ban owning or sharing 3D printer plans for guns.
Charlotte City Council committee kills plan for no-go areas for criminals. Let’s just make crime illegal there. Oh, wait.
Astronaut tweets photo of a UFO. Maybe.
TSA confiscates a kid’s Buzz Lightyear toy because it kinda, sorta looks like a gun.
These people get elected, folks.
Lorettay Lynch says Lois Lerner Protected by DOJs Prosecutorial Discretion. Of course. She was only targeting enemies of the administration.
Guess it depends on the gun.
Post Paris attack, gun sales and carry permits surge.
So, the NY Daily News gets full on hysterical blaming the NRA for not letting a law pass so that people on a terror watch list are prohibited from buying guns. Given the issues with the watch list, that sounds reasonable to most people. The sheer hysteria in the tone of the article is amusing. It means they’re losing, they know it, and they’re trying anything.
A common theme put forward by a few of the presidential candidates at the last Republican debate was that, gosh darnit, you just couldn’t deport all those people who were breaking the law because it was impractical or impossible. Because there’s so many of them. The numbers tossed out were 3, 9, and 11 million, IIRC.
You see, it’s not possible or practical to enforce the law as it is written, so they should ignore it or let it slide or change the law. I welcome this precedent. How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us stop paying taxes? How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us ignore NFA laws? How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us start smoking marijuana? Or whatever anyone’s pet issue.
In two of three of my examples, I’m guessing the reaction wouldn’t be “gosh, that’s impossible”.
If you are in a shooting situation where your target is in close proximity to TATP explosives you should either make certain you dont hit the containers or you are prepared to accept the consequences of a detonation.
Practicing head shots will be part of the next range session.
In other news, the Brady Campaign is still around giving awards.
Mostly, not much.
Some PSH over at Bloomberg’s fake grassroots effort on bumpfire stocks:
AR-15 Lovers Are Getting Fully Automatic Thrills with Barely Legal Gadgets
Bump fire devices let black rifles fire hundreds of rounds per minute. They’ve become hot accessories for the growing tactical weapons set.
That truly is a dizzying piece.
Obama says gun control to be top issue of final year. I guess he hasn’t won enough gun salesman of the year awards.
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
