Hey, Slate, what did you expect? To Obama,

EVERYTHING is about him.

The level of- stupid? hope over facts?- in this is just amazing:
Ammunition will be registered and signed for just like sudafed in a drugstore. There will be a one time purchase limit per month unless exception made in advance. For all of you folks saying that won’t work; that it will cause a black market, you are right but we have to try otherwise we will be Gotham City in no time. "It won't work, BUT WE HAVE TO DO IT ANYWAY, OR ELSE!!" Jeez.

From a post by the Dutchman some time back:
"I, myself, remained on the balcony and fired at the confused and embarrassed Germans with my Mauser. From my balcony, I could see them in all their helplessness and their loss of control. The air was full of wails and shouts. Many of them tried to run to the walls of the houses for cover but everything was barred and beyond that, death was pursuing them. In the noise, the fluster, and the cries of the wounded, we heard the astonished outcry of one of the Germans: 'Juden haben waffen! Juden haben waffen!' ('The Jews have arms!') . . .

The battle lasted for about a half an hour. The Germans withdrew and there were many corpses and wounded in the street." -- Recollection of the opening engagement on 19 April 1943 of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising by Haim Frymer, Jewish Fighting Organization, quoted in Resistance by Israel Gutman, New York, 1994, pp. 206-207.

Post then moves on into the usefulness of stripper clips('chargers' more correctly, but...)

I've linked to this before, but it's a good time to do so again: someone asks why a plain old citizen(I refuse to use 'civilian' for this) might actually need a gun, tell them to go read.

If they're a hard-core gun bigot or hoplophobe, it probably won't help; for others, it just might.

Let it not be forgotten that the three worst mass-murderers of modern history were all socialists; and two of them really seemed fond of using starvation for the killing.
(thanks to the Dutchman for the link)

Naw, nobody want to take our guns; the leftists and apologists all say so.
Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.

As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.

I think it was Tam who said 'a loophole is someone legally doing something you don't like':
Although senior correspondent Judy Wooodruff asked Gross about banning so-called "assault weapons," he quickly turned the subject to private sales, leading Woodruff to (understandably) believe that he thought a private sales ban should be pursued instead of a new AWB. Gross was quick to deny that that was his intent, but nevertheless chided Kopel for continuing to talk about "assault weapons," rather than private sales.

This is not because Gross does not passionately want a new AWB--he certainly does. Presumably, though, he sees a private sales ban as being a more attainable goal in the short term.

I read that "jew without a gun" piece a few years ago, I think. This is a reposting.
I'm going to wait until after Christmas to reply to my GFW brother and his stalinist wife re the Newton shooting and how a little gun is no match for an assault weapon that shoots so fast. It is, after all Christmas.

It's quite obvious why socialists prefer to commit mass murder by starvation: to leftists, intentions matter more than results, and so "being unfortunately unable" to feed the people whom one has deprived of the capacity to feed themselves isn't murder - even though the result is more inhumane than Hitler's gas chambers.
