In reaction to all the talk of proposed gun legislation, recent days have seen:

An exponential spike in the sale of AR-15 rifles

Another spike in the sale of 30-round magazines (reportedly one million are now on back order!), and

Many new NRA memberships…

In light of these facts, Patterico’s Pontifications proudly nominates our Senator, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, for an NRA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Perhaps no single American in the country’s history has done more to put high-powered rifles and high capacity magazines in the hands of United States citizens.
