...It’s the long-awaited assault-weapons ban, introduced last week by three Seattle Democrats.
Responding to the Newtown school massacre, the bill would ban the
sale of semi-automatic weapons that use detachable ammunition magazines.
Clips that contain more than 10 rounds would be illegal.
So, according to Westneat banning EVERY SEMI-AUTO except, say, .22 rifles and shotguns with tube magazines is'perfectly reasonable'.
(You also get the standard "The NRA is hateful and prevents reasonable actions" crap)
As Lawdog says, "nibble-nibble." Except in this case it's "CHOMP-gulp." And we're supposed to 'compromise' with these people.
From a DoJ study:
“Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide
and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is
unlikely to have an impact on gun violence,” the DOJ’s National
Institute for Justice explains in a January 4 report obtained by the National Rifle Association.
“If coupled with a gun buyback(i.e. 'confiscation') and no exemptions then it could be
effective.” That idea is also undermined by the acknowledgement that “a
complete elimination of assault weapons would not have a large impact on
Obama doesn't care, he still wants to ban things.
One of the reasons I despise so many of the socialists and enviroweenies out there: all the 'Frankenfood' crap. They'd rather see kids suffer and die than allow them to use Golden Rice.
Take a look at some of the comments: "It came from a corporation, therefore it is EVIL!" Also the continuing "Lomborg went off the plantation, he must be destroyed!" crap.
Two things in this: One is a leftist asshole like Baldwin facing 'hate-crime' charges; he probably LOVES him some hate-crime laws, so the blowback is wonderful.
Second: Miller told investigators he showed Baldwin his retired cop ID because he thought that the actor was being “too aggressive.”
Yeah, "I'm a retired cop, you better behave!" THAT'S a winner, isn't it?
The EPA: "Sure, we'll obey the law and release the e-mails; we just won't let you see what's in them."
New Jersey politicians: lying as much and making as much sense as their friends in Chicago.
'Spontaneous combustion' considered in Sequoyah County death
Went by one of my usual reloading supplies places yesterday. Some powder in stock, lots of bullets still sold out. Lots of shotgun primers, but the ONLY primers on the shelf that were not magnum or a few match were some Tula small rifle; all the standard large rifle and large & small pistol were gone. And there was one box of X-treme .44 bullets on the bulk bullet shelf.
