... "But if we step back away from the minutiae of the demographic breakdown, we have somewhere between 64 and 80 percent who will not comply with any confiscatory gun bans. And make no mistake, the specter of confiscatory bans is not 'paranoid, right-wing delusion,' as can be seen be seen in the obscenely misnamed 'SAFE Act,' in New York, an active program of confiscation of registered firearms in California, and proposals for similar abominations at the federal level:" ...

John Hickenlooper signed major anti-gun legislation and set in motion the loss of state revenue from Magpul Industries, which manufactures magazines for semi-automatic sporting rifles." ...

"Anti-gunners as far away as Puget Sound are cheering todays’ events, but their perceived victory may be hollow and costly to the Colorado economy.

"Jeremy writes:"
"I don’t know if you guys have gotten this question before, or if it would warrant writing an article, but do you have any feedback on zeroing a rifle on a range measured in yards, and then how accuracy would be affected when shooting that rifle estimating distance based on meters? The difference @ 100m vs. 100 yards is going to be about 9′ so my assumption is that even to the max effective range of a 5.56 round, there isn’t going to be enough of a difference to see a noticeable POI shift. Do you have an opinion?"

"One might be forgiven for believing that when U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) urged President Obama to 'exploit' (Nadler's term) the murdered children of Sandy Hook Elementary, forcible citizen disarmament advocates could go no lower, become no more contemptible. As understandable as that belief is, it is unfortunately also untrue."

"Insatiable 'gun control' advocate Michael Moore's enormous appetite for oppressive gun regulation is such that he is gleefully predicting that photos of the butchered children will be leaked to the public, causing such a tsunami of anti-gun hysteria ... that the public will join Moore and his fellow anti-gun jihadists in demanding that the American people be disarmed. ..." ...

"You may recall that the Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) began their post-Newtown civilian disarmament campaign with 'Demand a Plan.' As we pointed out on numerous occasions the 'plan' they were demanding was . . . demanding a plan. Mayor Bloomberg’s homies didn’t crusade on ammunition magazine capacity limits or banning modern sporting (a.k.a. assault) rifles or anything specific, really. They simply waved the bloody shirt, trusting that their supporters would let Bloomberg’s backroom boyz iron-out the details. Now that a federal assault weapons ban is DOA and mag cap limits are a non-starter, MAIG has suddenly focused on a specific proposal. And no wonder . . ." ...

As the literally dozens of viewers who tune into Martin Bashir’s anti-gun afternoon antics can attest, no outrage is beneath the NRA. The gun rights org’s latest transgression against polite society: opposition to the UN’s arms trade treaty. As Marty points out, 150 countries are on board, so what’s not to like? Assembling a panel representing the full spectrum of political views from left all the way to far-left, Bashy, Grumpy and Epstein wring their hands over the gun industry-supporting NRA that’s now nothing more than a 'direct mail Internet scam operation' . . ." ...

"Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin’s latest salvo against the NY SAFE law takes issue with a state tipline inviting residents to report illegal firearms possession. While cracking down on illegal guns is usually something that Republicans support wholeheartedly, McLaughlin says this initiative 'seeks to turn neighbor against neighbor' — which is certainly not an allusion by McLaughlin to any other historical period in which neighbors informed on each other." ...

"Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, defended a planned change to the gun-control law, saying a move to allow the sale of a 10-bullet magazine won’t infringe on the intent of the tough law."

"Silver told reporters this afternoon that gun manufacturers simply don’t make seven-bullet magazines. The proposed change would allow for the sale of 10-bullet magazines, but they could be used on shooting ranges or in competitions. Otherwise, gun owners will be only allowed to put seven bullets in the magazine."

"'It’s a change to accommodate commerce, basically. They are not being made in the sevens,' Silver said." ...

"The vote was taken after a public hearing packed with gun supporters, who listened politely and cheered anyone who spoke about protecting the Second Amendment or pointed out criminals weren’t likely to follow any gun laws." ...

"... Others, like Charleston Police Capt. Brian Ambrose, worry it will make officers’ jobs harder because they will have to wait for someone openly holding a gun to commit a crime before they can confront them. ..." ...

"'Will Bellevue Chief Pillo demonstrate how easy it is to convert a semi-auto to a machine gun?' this column asked over three years ago.

One of her reasons:

While vacuuming his home, his phone rang a few times, but he decided not to answer since he didn’t want to get held up.
