Killer Tomato Cass Sunstein wrote an op-ed for Bloomberg last week entitled Gun Debate Must Avoid Crazy 2nd Amendment Claims. It contains the usual collectivist bilge but it was the illustration to the article which drew my attention. I suppose that this is the "Founders wrote the Second Amendment at the time of single-shot smoothbore muskets so that's all you're guaranteed" argument illustrated in pen and ink. I look at it as the visual expression of every modern tyrant's fear. Ten minutemen are replaced in the cartoon by ten rounds, a third of the standard capacity of an AR or... more »

$200 NFA Extortion Stamp Well, the ever benevolent Dianne Feinstein will 'let' you keep your current rifles and handguns (yep, she's going after handguns too) under her 'new and improved AWB' by grandfathering them in...for a price.There's this little part at the end of her AWB Legislation Summary: Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:

The Obama administration's former 'regulatory czar,' Cass Sunstein, is a man with some . . . interesting ideas (at least to those who find raving lunacy "interesting").

I call *Bullshit!* ** So now you have NRA and GOA calling for expansion of Prohibited Persons via a Mental Health database. Perhaps they will one day make the claim "*We had no choice but to throw the baby under the bus to save the carriage!*" And there will be some who believe it. Some will believe that this is all a political move, a counter-weight against Feinstein's AWB. You do understand, don't you, just how elastic and subjective would be the "Rules" for qualifying or being denied 2A based on the decisions taken by a physician or ObamaCare bureaucrat? Think about the ab... more »

Wisdom for the day. I think every reader can find the application for this bit of wisdom, regardless of where one's faith is placed. *A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. ~Proverbs 22:3*

*"If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it." -- Senator Diane Feinstein, CBS-TV, 60 Minutes, 5 February 1995.* A deep genuflection and tip of the boonie hat to reader Ryan who alerted me to this analysis at Soldier Systems: Classify ‘Assault Weapons’ Under NFA…The Grand Compromise? I was intending to do a column on this, but the Soldier Systems' piece is a good place to start. Here's the deal. The NFA is so shot through with errors and prob... more »
Excellent analysis buttressed by little-known history. *The people who want to advance “reasonable” gun control in the United States are myth-makers, and they should not be confused with the useful idiots who subscribe to their myths. They know that a ten-round magazine limit or a ban on scary-looking pistol grips wouldn’t have prevented the deaths of those children in Connecticut. They know that nothing short of a nationwide ban on firearms possession, combined with a thorough and merciless seizure of the 300 million weapons in private hands already, could significantly reduce th... more »
