  1. Magpul subcontractors already pulling out. The writing is on the wall. The County Sheriffs are against the measures and wrote a position paper detailing their disagreement.

    The bill’s sponsor just got up and said that the Columbine killers used high capacity mags. I’m waiting for someone to get up and say, “and that was during the previous ‘assault weapons ban’. CHECKMATE!”

  2. These people are morons. Citing criminal use of high cap mags as a reason to keep them out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.

  3. Also, the hypocrisy is amazing: Magpul is allowed to keep producing their stuff and sell them to other states and other countries. Just not here in Colorado.

  4. They are calling themselves “courageous” for producing a ban.

  5. If only I could cite pornography as reason to repeal the first amendment.

  6. The bill’s sponsor just got up and said that the Columbine killers used high capacity mags.

    Oh, I’m glad to see that she’s gotten past her outrage at having her integrity impugned by those nasty racists suggesting that her bill won’t do diddly to stop violence.

    But this time they’ll do it right.

  8. My day of reckoning is next week:

    I’ve been seething all day about these imminent odious laws. I’m not surprised considering where I live and how hard it is to get a gun already but these new laws are ridiculous and discriminatory.

    The banning of online ammo sales is idiotic and going to cost me money. I could sort of deal with it if there were more than 5 stores that sold ammunition in the whole state. Of course I might not be able to legally buy ammo if the law that mandates renewing my firearm identification card every five years is passed. It damn well took me over 3 months and countless hoops to get that card the first time. I’m sure it will be a picnic every five years.

    The worst thing is the fucking spineless lemmings I’m surrounded with who couldn’t give a shit because they think their smug halo of faux superiority will protect them against harm.

    I wonder if my fat mavericky maverick of a governor will be such a maverick when it comes to supporting the 2nd amendment. I’m not hold breath. I am buying ammo online today and rejoined the NRA yesterday.

    Good times.

    Thanks for letting vent a little. Love the blog. Stay strong and safe.

  9. Thoughts on doing it right.

    On the Left there is always the refrain after a grand socialism experiment fails that “they didn’t do it right.” What “right” is is never articulated except that this time “we” will do it “right.” I think however they are coming to have an way of saying what “doing it right” will be.

    NYC Mayor Bloomberg and Chicago’s Mayor Rahm both have heavy gun control laws in place yet still have huge numbers of people killed by guns. They blame not their own laws but other localities, ones having fewer gun crimes, that have easier access to guns by citizens.

    Their idea is that if all places had their, the cities, gun laws then all places would have low gun crime. The gun crime problem is because their system doesn’t apply everywhere so they work to extend it to everyone.

    So too the USSR only failed because their system wasn’t applied everywhere and the outside places that were not “Soviet” caused bad ideas and things to flow into the USSR and destroy it.

    I figure that what the left is aiming at is a total global socialist system where there will be no outside to destroy it. Then socialism will finally be done “right” and never collapse.

    They could be right in one way as what they will actually build in socialism is a “water empire” and they are incredibly stable until brought down from outside. No outside, nothing to bring them down.

  10. Have they gotten to “You’ll shoot your eye out!!!” as a reason for their dickheaded tyranny yet?

  11. High capacity magazines are capable of killing a high number of people…they mow down large numbers of people.

    …just said the bint without the self-awareness to stand aside and down.

    I ask again: Why are these overt anti-constitutionalists not presented articles of impeachment for violating their oaths?

    Consider it punching-back-twice-as-hard. There’s nothing here to argue about whatsoever and there’s nothing but ample cause to know these people are about to hurt their constituents in clear violation of their prior constitutional rights.

    That is tableable but nothing more is.

  12. I figure that what the left is aiming at is a total global socialist system where there will be no outside to destroy it. Then socialism will finally be done “right” and never collapse.

    They could be right in one way as what they will actually build in socialism is a “water empire” and they are incredibly stable until brought down from outside. No outside, nothing to bring them down.

    This is where a knowledge of Eric Voegelin, or at least Thomas Sowell, becomes crucial.

    It also helps to be acquainted with Oakeshott’s second Tower of Babel essay.

  13. Jeff, this is nauseating. Virtually every one of the opponents of this proposed measure are arguing variable pragmatics. They’re arguing for “solutions” to human behavior, as if they as government had that right and as if standing law hadn’t been established concerning crime hundreds of years ago.

    They’re arguing almost entirely with passive, defensive reason in the face of and on the basis of a deeply active, baseless, and emotional assault on reason.

    They’re handing over the seeds of their own defeat. This is a soft and misled people and sadly they are us.

  14. Columbine, Aurora, Sandy Hook.

    Let’s do something.

    Let’s move in the right direction.

    Yeah; sure.

  15. “[A]rguing for ‘solutions’ to human behavior” is what they do, what they’ve always done.

    [I]n the unconstrained vision, where moral improvement has no fixed limit …. [m]an is, in short, “perfectable”—meaning continually improvable rather than capable of actually reaching absolute perfection. [....]

    While use of the word “perfectability” has faded[,] the concept has survived[.] The notion that “the human being is highly plastic material” is still central among many contemporary thinkers who share the unconstrained vision. The concept of “solution” remains central to this vision. A solution is achieved when it is no longer necessary to make a trade-off, even if the development of that solution entailed costs now past. The goal of achieving a solution is in fact what justifies the initial sacrifices or transitional conditions which might otherwise be considered unacceptable. (Sowell, Conflict, 18-19) [emphasis added]

    Surrender and prepare to be assimilated. Resistance is Futile. You will adapt to serve the Collective. For teh children!

  16. The banning of online ammo sales is idiotic and going to cost me money.

    I figure it’s going to make somebody pretty wealthy. There’s plenty of guys selling stuff out of the trunk of their car already. This one’s a gimme.

  17. David Gregory is going to make a mint.

  18. The NRA is calling on gun rights supporters to flood the galleries of the Colorado State House tomorrow morning “to hold your state Representative accountable by making sure they vote NO on these restrictive bills.”

  19. And in Christie-land:

    The New Jersey Law and Public Safety Committee held hearings yesterday on 23 gun control bills and the pushed all of the bills out of committee to the full house. As the release below from the NJ Second Amendment Society makes clear, it was the intention of the committee chairman that all of these bills would pass his committee.

  20. David Gregory is going to make a mint.

    That took me a second, bh. Good show.

  21. On my 5:21 link I thought that had been posted today not yesterday.

  22. Mr. Governor Mitt Romney enthusiastically signed an assault weapons ban when he was governor of the state of Massachusetts.

    True story you can google it.

    Curiously, he was later chosen to be the Republican nominee for president in 2012.

  23. Chosen by you and yours, rodent. Don’t pin that shit on us.

  24. Gee, maybe that’s why conservatives stayed home.

    Well, that and the Romney care, the Kerryesque flip-flopping contortions, the “Obama’s a good man in over his head….

  25. i didn’t vote for him not once not ever

    meghan’s coward daddy was the last phony piece of shit republican I voted for

    and I don’t aim to do it again

    I aim to misbehave

    you feel me roobs n ryan?

    you feel me porky porky chris christie?

    you feel me exorcist boy?

    and no I’m not voting for some piece of shit senate whore Mr. Paul you get on with your bad self and get some for reals experience

  26. Just came in email.

    Recently companies such as LaRue Tactical and Olympic Arms announced they will no longer sell prohibited items to government agencies and personnel in states denying civilians to own those same items. It has been and will continue to be Cheaper Than Dirt’s policy not to sell prohibited items to government agencies and agents in states, counties, cities and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their citizens. We support and encourage other companies that share in this sentiment.

  27. geoffb, that’s why I will continue to shop with them.

    Jeff, hopefully all the firearms manufacturers will relocate to places like Texas that want them. After all, one reason the Democrats lost the first Civil War is that the arms suppliers weren’t in their jurisdiction. Time for history to repeat itself.
