What will be loaded in it?
Slot A: AWB- complete failure, Connecticut has one, made no difference. So did New York. And the cases need to be brought up where lack of military utility was a disqualifier for short barrel shotguns. Every gun sold should have a military application or feature by that precedent. Columbine was done with 10 round mags.
Slot B: Magazine bans: you have a man commit a violation of a magazine ban live on national television. Nothing happened. No SWAT teams rappelled in from the lighting rigs to
Slot C: Registration: complete failure, made no difference in Connecticut.
Slot D: No crazies with guns. That will be the most work. So it will receive the least thought. Or everyone who wants a gun will be called crazy.
Slot E: The complete failure of gun free zones: Too much blood on too many hands to admit they are a failure. Hell, 500 murders in the Gun Control Paradise of Chicago, Gun Free zones like Fort Hood, Aurora and numerous school shootings nail it home. A sign is not a shield. It is a talisman. Or a false idol.
Slot F: Banning private sales: Not applicable to any of the recent mass shootings, or already a crime. Connecticut douche got a ballistic discount. Crime. NY arson murderer was already a murderer, who paid a moron(s) to buy him guns. Existing gun control law. Columbine- straw purchase, never prosecuted. See David Gregory.
Slot G: Violence in media/video games. Under age 18 exposure will come up. Possible full throttle censorship to that age group, like smoking rules. Personally, smacks of "everyone gets a trophy" madness. On the other hand, everyone gets a little pain on this deal. Spread the FUD around. A point. I have an achievement for killing 53,394 zombies (x2 different games) and 72,000 zombies in a single 8 hour play through. Guess what - those are achieved with cars, not guns. I own both in real life. I don't run around shooting people or trying to run pedestrians down.
Slot H: Media coverage: Hmmm- balancing the need to know with copycats playing monkey see, monkey kill. I do not think anything needs to be done here. By the government. Remember the Fox News mistake when the guy shot himself live? Here is my sick, twisted idea. Show more. You don't hurt anybody, you get your 15 minutes. You hurt people, kill others, refer to them only as "that f'ing loser." All get a derogatory name. They would need to be vetted, not aired live.
Slot I: Complete repeal of the NFA and other federal gun control acts, to be replaced with commonsense, easily understood rules. Never happen. Most of the NFA is related to banning handguns. That never came to pass. (SBR, stupid grip rules for handguns) I can see registration of full auto weapons, $500 fee, (I know, burn the heretic) but most of the rest of the NFA taxes are insipid rules for a growing federal enforcement apparatus who were about to be laid off due to the end of Prohibition. My favorite part was using the deaths of gangsters to argue that you had to be disarmed to protect criminals from criminals.
Hey, I had to throw that last one in there. After all, this is a conversation, not a lecture, right?

The court's ruling took issue not with the size of the tax, but with the way it discriminated between households depending on how incomes were distributed among its members. A household with two earners each making under €1 million would be exempt from the tax, while one with one earner making €1.2 million would have to pay.
The part I emphasized is the important part. Those darned rich married people could be getting off by making

The old standby: require liability insurance for gun owners. Not the worst article. I like my idea better- you post a gun free sign, you take full liability for people's safety. Put your money where your ideals are.
All the people wanting David Gregory to skate are shocked that gun control exists. Or should be enforced. Because they automatically ASSume no gun control exists, it is for other people, or are pushing for more. Sucks when you discover unconstitutional laws have to be written to ensnare unwitting people to be "effective."

Introducing the 2013 We Must Do Something and Need More Laws Now Act:
1: Nationwide concealed carry: All permit holders and constitutional carry state citizens are covered nationwide. States without shall issue permits are constitutional carry states. -The following applies to states forced to make a permit system after date of passage- Permits to be handled in the same manner as voter registration, plus a NICS check. No fee for a permit can be more than a driver's license for the same time frame.
2: No local firearms regulations- must be state level action. (Form your own state, big cities.)
3: All state firearms regulations apply to police/state troopers/aldermen with no exceptions.
4: All states with registration fees or ownership permits are required to provide full tax deductions for all firearms purchased and registered. Additionally, all ammunition purchased in said states is 100% tax deductible. Proof of consumption not allowed.
5: Any place, public or private, off limits to concealed carry must provide armed guards and liability insurance. At any time someone may be in that place, employee or customer. Funding for public Gun Free Zones to come directly from the political party with the most votes for the authorizing bill, with a portion from the party of the governor who signs it.(heh, not Constitutional, but neither is the NFA) No public grants to private institutions to pay for guards, and their pay cannot be deducted as a business expense.
6: National Firearms Act of 1934 is changed to use the NICS to transfer weapons. SBRs are allowed 3 shot burst on the same stamp. Suppressors $5 permit, same day NICS permit. Hughes Amendment is removed from the 1986 FOPA. Constructive possession is not a crime. Local police are notified but have no say in transfers. The ATF is notified on all stamps, cannot stop a permit other than NICS failure.
7: States refusing mental health information to the NICS lose all federal school funding of any kind for a period of 2 years after they provide said information. Enforcement date of this provision is 6 months after passage of this law.
I guess the #5 provision does relate to Gun Free Zone shootings. Silly me. And #7, for that matter. Maybe if was called the "Gun control act of 2013 that we must pass to know what is in it" Obama would sign it without reading it.

Just going through my reloading trash. Most of the .223 FMJ came in a sack. Two of the boxes are full of spent primers. And I have about 700 pieces of brass to deprime and prep.

They run a headline saying Mass Killings Occur Every Two Weeks. Then they admit 1/3 of mass killings involve fire. Read further, the number of mass killings has gone DOWN in recent years. The kicker, you are more likely to die from a migrane, falling out of a chair(!!!!11!) and are 3 times as likely to get sunstroke and die as be caught in a mass killing. Hence, they must support sun control. No word if Congress will be introducing a Sun Free Zone bill without a sunset provision in it. Maybe the Guam tipping over mental midget can introduce it.

Are you going to use Product "X"
___If it is on sale

It sold out in 4 minutes. My wife was on it at sale time. 8000 tickets in 4 minutes. Guess I won't be going in February:(
Technically, there are some high level packages left. I'm not spending -that- much. Call me crazy, I can get a whole pig for a lot less....

When they say "we" have a problem with "gun culture." "I" would be more descriptive. But then they sound selfish, trying to disarm everyone for the actions of a few. The fill in for Jim Rome today sounded like he was reading right off of the Brady Bunch's homepage, for example. Turned that crap off.

I can't believe I could visit my own blog. I fail most of the list. I've discussed guns, ammunition, weapons, gambling, tobacco, violence, alcohol, and drugs. Suicide probably counts from yesterday, too. Guess I need to get on the rest.
