Quotes of the day

posted at 10:24 pm on December 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

What will Democrats do to craft an assault weapons ban that has a better chance of success this time?

A person familiar with the drafting of the bill assures me that it will be more sweeping, in an effort to plug many of the holes that bedeviled the first one. One noteworthy tidbit: The new bill will explicitly name the Bushmaster used in the Newtown shooting as a target…

“This bill would name many more weapons than the original ban did,” the person familiar with drafting tells me. “It would name ones that would be specifically prohibited, including this Bushmaster in Connecticut.”

***

Bystanders got to Loughner and subdued him only after he emptied one 31-round magazine and was trying to load another. Adam Lanza, the Newtown shooter, chose as his primary weapon a semiautomatic rifle with 30-round magazines. And we don’t even bother to call the 100-rounder that James Holmes is accused of emptying in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater a magazine — it is a drum. How is this not an argument for regulating the number of rounds a gun can fire?…

So what’s the alternative? Bring back the assault weapons ban, and bring it back with some teeth this time. Ban the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer and possession of both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Don’t let people who already have them keep them. Don’t let ones that have already been manufactured stay on the market. I don’t care whether it’s called gun control or a gun ban. I’m for it.

I say all of this as a gun owner. I say it as a conservative who was appointed to the federal bench by a Republican president…

There is just no reason civilians need to own assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Gun enthusiasts can still have their venison chili, shoot for sport and competition, and make a home invader flee for his life without pretending they are a part of the SEAL team that took out Osama bin Laden.

***

“We have to have a comprehensive way in which to respond to the mass murder of our children that we saw in Connecticut,” Biden told law enforcement officials and members of the Cabinet at the start of the meeting. He and President Obama agree that “even if we can only save one life, we have to take action.”

There’s “no reason” why Congress shouldn’t be able to pass a ban on assault weapons, he said. Referring to the bill he authored in 1994, he added: “Quite frankly, you guys helped me write it,” referring to the leaders of major law enforcement groups at the meeting — including Jon Adler of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police and Walt McNeil of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

***

It wasn’t always this way. After the assassinations of leaders like Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. in the late 1960s, the nation enacted sweeping gun-safety laws — and the NRA did not stand in the way.

The NRA was less political in that era and more focused on providing practical assistance to its members, much like AAA does today for automobile owners. But in the 1980s, the group became more militant. Part of this was driven by new leadership, which sought to expand the group’s membership rolls and collect more dues.

But this radicalization was also abetted by those who really were seeking an outright ban on guns.

Now that Heller has ruled out the possibility of anyone ever taking away their weapons, gun owners should be more open to some reasonable limitations. No individual right is absolute, after all. While the First Amendment protects freedom of speech, no one has a right to falsely shout “Fire!” in a crowded theater, nor to traffic in child pornography. Likewise, the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms also comes with limits.

***

Between the time Congress started signaling that they would create a magazine capacity restriction and the implementation of the law, factories worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week churning out millions of nothing but high-capacity magazines, which were stockpiled by manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers in massive warehouses.

As a result, “high capacity magazines” for most common firearms were freely available throughout the life of the ban. As e-commerce came into early maturity during this time period, many high-capacity magazines were more available than they had been before the ban was signed into law…

The law had another unforeseen result. As companies looked to introduce new models of pistols, they determined that if they were going to be forced to make pistols limited to a magazine capacity of just 10 rounds, it would be advantageous for them to make these new pistols as small as possible for the concealed carry market. The Glock 26 and Kahr K9 were introduced the following year, and were among the first of a new breed of powerful, ultra-concealable handguns known as “subcompacts.” Similar designs from other companies quickly followed.

Objectively, based purely on the numbers, the assault weapons ban increased both the number of and public acceptance of semi-automatic, military-style rifles, and created a new class of powerful, concealable handguns.

***

“We’re not trying to take away your right to advance the interests of gun owners, hunters, people who want to protect themselves,” Bloomberg told “Nightline” anchor Cynthia McFadden in an interview today. “But that’s not an absolute right to encourage behavior which causes things like Connecticut. In fact, Connecticut is because of some of their actions.”

***

“The NRA has to come forward with that immediately,” Scarborough said. “They just do. They’re going to fight on assault weapons. But I wonder, Mark Halperin, and I’ve been talking to my Republicans over the past year, warning them of the loss that came in November. I wonder how many swing voters in the suburbs of Philadelphia think you should be able to get an assault weapon online. I wonder how many swing voters in the I-4 corridor of Florida think you should be able to get assault weapons online. I wonder how many swing voters in Columbus, Ohio, think you should be able to get an assault weapon online. That answer — this is a 90/10 proposition, what I always say in Congress — 90 percent for, 10 percent against. The Republican Party better understand, they’d better understand — I’m telling them the same thing I told them throughout the year — this is going to put them in a horrific position moving forward if they stand in the way of these common-sense reforms.”

***

“These moments appear bad for the NRA, and they sort of run and hide as if they know that these moments appear bad. But NRA membership booms in these moments, gun sales boom in these moments,” Touré added. “So, in a perverse way – they would never admit this publicly – these moments are actually good for them.”

“How do we expect them to really not want these moments,” Touré asked.

Isn’t is ironic that the HOMICIDE RATE IS AT THE LOWEST IT HAS BEEN SINCE THE 1960s and 49 states now have CCW laws enabling citizens to carry the means to protect themselves (soon all 50 will given Illinois’ law has been held unconstitutional by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals) and, yet, the Assault Weapons Ban a/k/a The Prohibition On Certain Guns With Cosmetic Changes That Make Them Look Skeery And Are Painted Skeery (And Racist!) Black Act EXPIRED EIGHT YEARS AGO?

Seriously don’t see the downside to this.

Reasonable restriction on gun rights = total ban on the possession of functioning firearms in one’s place of residence (i.e. the DC gun ban that Obama, Holder, and company thought was pretty f****** awesome)

But try to suggest that 13-year-old, illegal immigrant girls shouldn’t get unlimited, taxpayer-funded, late-term abortions, no questions asked and you’re waging a war on women.

Here’s the thing. If I thought the democrats could actually craft a reasonable assault weapons ban. I might be for it. But of course they won’t. No, you shouldn’t be able to get a 100 round drum (not that I pretend they’re that common). But only 10 rounds for a weapon? Sure 10 rounds should be enough to deal with self protection, if we’re talking about a good shooter. But a bad shooter against 3 intruders? Might not get them all. So maybe we should look at 15-20 rounds.
Course I also don’t think a shooter will show up to a place where there is a chance they’ll get shot at first.

It doesn’t matter if those out in the sticks have “assault weapons” or semi-auto pistols. Doesn’t even matter if a few of them have Gatling guns, RPGs and howitzers.

The idea is to control the population centers. Control those and you control the supply of food, fuel and other necessities, communications and finance. Therefore you have those living in the rest of the country by the proverbial balls.

I wonder If ed rents faulty advertising on the side of his dog?

Townhall just rocks!

Tim_CA on December 20, 2012 at 11:06 PM

In the past it’s been ads. This time it appears to be coming from a vid.

Therefore you have those living in the rest of the country by the proverbial balls.

Except they have all the food.

And are better prepared to survive without their citified brothers.

The reverse cannot be said.

Just walked by O’Reilly. Have no idea why Fox was on, but his talking points were about power and this governments seeking thereof. It was the best I’ve ever heard him give. Then Kirsten came on and gave him an F. And then I was done with O’Reilly again and remembered why.

*sigh*

I really don’t understand AllahPundit.

So we get to see a prolonged view into the leftist/media/hive mind…and really, there’s not much there.

here’s the bigger picture. The hysteria, mis- and dis-information, the repugnant arrogance and the fleeing from logic and critical thinking show why this country is in such trouble.

the majority of the media is not qualified to do much of anything. That is painfully obvious here…but it is also true of their attitudes toward climate change, their magical thinking toward the country’s debt and barry’s deficit and the greatness of all things Left, from Stalin to Fidel to the chi-comms

that’s the big problem…the Vanguard Class is very stupid….lumpen proletariat that spend a couple of hours in hair and make up every day

Is a retroactive ban even possible? Feinstein’s ban would only ban future sales. Am I missing something? Has anyone besides that blowhard Ed Shultz advocated for physically ceasing our rifles?

Each school should hire a couple of teachers, train them how to shoot, give them some extra hazard pay and viola! Some balance to the scales.

would prefer them to be principals / vice principal types … less student

Yep, 0bamacorps For America can mobilize for a house to house confiscation using gun sniffing chihuahuas.

Jimmy Carter Saved the Day

Jimmy Carter Saved The Day – The Mold Monkies

We were lost
Together apart
Couldn’t find
The lust in our heart

“I can help,”
He said with a grin
“Soon you’ll have
inflation again”

We never know all the right things to say
We made our own bolt of lightning
When Jimmy Carter saved the day

“Certain parts
can go on the fritz
Try this pill
It goes in your grits”

We never know all the right things to say
We got the urge, and it’s frightening
‘Cause Jimmy Carter saved the day

He worked hard
with peanuts for pay
Now we’re primed
To roll in the hay

If your love
Is lost in a daze
Call the prez
He’ll fix your malaise

We never know all the right things to say
We made our own bolt of lightning
When Jimmy Carter saved the day

It’s okay
It’s okay
It’s okay
And the south, and the south, and the south, and the south,
And the south will rise again

;P ;P ;P
