The Trumpening

The AP:

The Senate passed a sweeping criminal justice bill Tuesday that addresses concerns that the nations war on drugs had led to the imprisonment of too many Americans for non-violent crimes without adequately preparing them for their return to society.

Senate passage of the bill by a vote of 87-12 culminates years of negotiations and gives President Donald Trump a signature policy victory, with the outcome hailed by scores of conservative and liberal advocacy groups. The House is expected to pass the bill this week, sending it to the presidents desk for his signature.

This strikes me as a good thing.

The Trumpening

So, Trump’s DOJ unilaterally and unlawfully banned bump stocks. This could be done by congress, I would think. But I don’t know that this will stand. In other news, if you have a bumpstock, you’ll be a felon in 90 days if you don’t turn it in or destroy it.

So, where’s my national reciprocity and hearing protection act I was promised?

Nunchucks

A judge in NY ruled they are protected by the second amendment. And, quite amazingly, this:

Evidence introduced during the trial showed that at least 64,890 wood or metal nunchucks were sold in the United States in the past 23 years.

Well, if that’s a criteria for “in common use”, I’ll take it.

The NRA has a soft spot for the police and for good reason and politics. However, they should probably address the bad shoots that officers are involved in. Not completely off topic, but it made me laugh:

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.
