As most of you have heard by now, the Obama administration seems to have the 2nd Amendment in their sites now. Remember when Eric Holder went rogue the first couple of months and announced this only to have the White House issue a “whatcha talkin’ bout” style retractions? Well, I think I called it then. Holder jumped the gun on an agenda item the POTUS wanted to pursue once he went into lame duck mode or similar when he had nothing to lose. The issue is just too black/white in most peoples minds to risk losing moderate or issue focused voters. Now it seems with his popularity waning in the second half of his presidency (still sucky economy…where is that “change” thing that we were promised…) I think maybe that they are looking at some of those items to try and get something passed that is at the core of their liberal base. The Arizona shootings of congresswoman Giffords didn’t hurt the cause either. Not that this is any in depth analysis on my part but I see two things being hammered down our throats again…
- Magazine limitations of 10 rounds again
- No private firearms transactions, period. All transfers will have to go through a FFL.
Well, both these suck. People forget (or ignore) that quite a few mass shooting occurred during the last magazine ban (Columbine), and the right of property and the ability to do with said property as you see fit is well established in our Constitution. Both are looking the Brady Bunch in the eye right now…..
Worst of all, this is announced during the ongoing investigation into Operation Gunrunner by those brain surgeons in BATFE. Can someone say wag the dog…..
Get out there and fight for your rights people. Call your congressmen and senators. Donate some cash to the NRA. Do something. Just don’t assume that others will protect your rights…their YOUR rights to protect.
Third prediction….If high cap mags are banned expect a even more massive proliferation of this classic piece replacing the sales of more modern, hicap firearms….
Yep, the 1911 will be king once again (well, I don’t really think it ever got off the throne to begin with)…especially the “budget” style pistols like this Regent R100 pistol above…
