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.
The good news first: South Korea has received permission to export 87,000 WW2-surplus M1 Garand rifles to the United States. They will likely be made available to collectors and shooters via the Civilian Marksmanship Program. These lightly-used rifles have spent most of their lives in storage, and represent a terrific opportunity for owning a functional piece of history.
Such is life. Like most gun fans, we had no illusions about the attitude that the Teleprompter-Jockey-in-Chief or his faithful lapdog, Eric cockHolder, would take towards guns.
Hopefully the Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Fast&Furious scandals will torpedo these new proposals. Or annoy enough gun people to make a difference at the polls.
In any case, we will continue to pass along relevant information that we find. We freely admit that there are other sites where current news is more prevalent. But hey, we were never trying to be the Instapundit of the gun blogging universe. There’s saysuncle for that. And we all love him for it!
No, we at YGN just try to explore different facets of the wide world of guns and share what we learn with our readers.
It has been a heck of a year. This blog began quietly. Despite baseless rumors of link-trolling, we made our big splash the gun blogging universe by merely stating a position I have held for years. A position which I will continue to reiterate as long as innocent consumers get tricked into buying obsolete, unsafe guns that need to be gunsmithed to make them reliable.
And a lot has happened in a year. Some major legal victories at the state and federal level. A whole bushel of new gun designs came onto the market (such as the Chiappa Rhino and the Kel-Tec’s KSG shotgun). And one of the last states to not allow concealed carry (Wisconsin, where it sucks to be a liberal right now) just passed a law legalizing it (and as Shall-Issue!).
Now it’s just lonely Illinois left to treat its citizens like incompetent sheep. And can any of us honestly say that we expected better from a state run by the Daley Machine and the soulless lying taxocrats it creates? A state that has the Cubs befouling its air? A state that is so ignorant and backward, they think that dumping a lasagna into a crust lets them call it a “pizza”?
