Yeah, Utah wants the law changed so badly

that a whole 400 signatures of 20k were from people in-state.  Some mandate, huh?

Also from Miguel, one of the likely side-effects of The Lightbringer ignoring his oath:
We might be seeing the bottoming out of the crime descent. Perhaps one more year, then maybe a leveling off one or two more years…and then it will pick up steeply. And it will be blamed on us again instead of the creators of the deed.

If you haven’t bought your long guns, do so. Maybe a couple of extra sidearms on the open market. Lots of extra magazines. But above all, buy ammo like there is no tomorrow. And learn to reload too & stock up on reloading supplies.
We already refer to Obama as the best gun salesman ever, and he's not done.

If a private citizen had an 'accidental discharge' like this, NYPD would've thrown them in jail and the prosecutor would be planning to throw them in prison; but this was by a NYPD officer, so it's just a sad accident...

And one more from 'Sorry Excuse for Law Enforcement' category:
Perhaps an even more disturbing reality is that nearly 30 percent of these dog shootings in Buffalo were carried out by one man. The unidentified officer has shot 26 dogs, killing 25 of them, in just the last three years.

I suspect Miguel is correct on gun and ammunition demand rising again, but I think his timeline is a bit too long.

The Grand Jury decision to indict/not to indict Darren Wilson is a lose-lose deal.

If he's not indicted, there's a better than 50% chance unrest will follow, and it may not be just in Ferguson. Whether it is or not, the message will be "you need to be prepared for stuff like that" which means more guns, especially things like ARs. More guns means more people buying ammunition to feed them.

If it's an indictment there's a good chance police nationwide will begin taking a step back from incidents rather than following through. Had Darren Wilson ignored Michael Brown and his accomplice walking in the street no one would have ever heard of Ferguson, Brown or Wilson. On that path, the situation in Ferguson, however, would have produced more strife between residents, probably more petty crime, meaning higher prices and some store owners not renewing leases, more citizens buying guns with which to protect themselves because they realized the police weren't going to step in and stand to.

Should that happen nationwide, it will mean a lot more guns get sold, and sooner than Miguel estimates. He figures three years for crime to start rising; I suspect it could be half that.
