(UPDATED) Well, it certainly didn’t take long for the left-wing gun-haters in the Connecticut legislature to trot out their proposals. It’s almost like the proposals were already written, and they were just waiting for some dead bodies to stand on while they presented the Bills. Well, Rahm Emmanuel always said to never let a crisis go to waste…
This post is a long one, so refill your glass.
We need to keep the message short, powerful, and well-sourced. And we need to target the typical arguments that an anti-gun-nut will use to convince fence-sitters.
From a link on Drudgereport.com:
Now it should surprise no one that the gun-toting yet anti-gun hypocrite senator from the bankrupt state of California is the first out of the gate with this nonsense. She will undoubtedly have support from fellow gun-toting anti-gunner upChuck Schumer.
The front cover of Guns & Ammo this month has a weird-looking contraption from Sig called the “ACP” or Adaptive Carbine Platform. There’s a video to watch at the link.
It seems to be a big aluminum housing that you attach your handgun to, making it into a PDW. It is covered with Picatinny rails that you can attach scopes, lights, lasers to. It has an attachment for an elastic sling on the back, and an operating handle to work the slide (which can be mounted on either side of the ACP).
There is a law-enforcement version with a wire shoulder stock on the back that would need to be registered as a short-barreled rifle if you want to own it.
Do you remember 0bama’s May 2011 pledge to pursue gun control “under the radar.” ? Check this out:
“Obama has expanded civil-forfeiture rules making it permissible for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize weapons from citizens without the hassle of due process.”
Anyone want to guess how long it will be before ATF agents insert themselves into cases where they have little or no jurisdiction in order to facilitate confiscations?
Now I find this article:
Apparently, 0bama’s designated spokes-tool and gaffe-suppressor has a history of clamoring for gun control since 1974.
