Probing Attacks

The Obama Administration is looking for ways to screw gun owners and what we get are probing attacks. Our Federal bureaucrats are their soldiers in this war. They propose some new regulation and we see it and respond. They withdraw. Two recent examples were the attempt to ban the M855 5.56 cartridge and this.

American hunters would have entered burueacrat hell just to take a rifle overseas to hunt. Fortunately the NRA, the firearms industry and some Congresscritters got win and once again the enemy withdrew. This is the kind of shit we're going to be putting up with for the next two years.

Two more years of Holder*

GOP Led Senate Confirms Loretta Lynch To Be Attorney General
*Might as well be. She'll continue to run interference for Obama's White House regardless of legality just as did Holder. Obstructionism R Us.

Heh

They always claim there will be blood in the streets.

The prohibitionists argue that campus carry is a really bad idea because of irresponsible college kids. Ya know, blood in the dorms. EXCEPT Colorado has had campus carry for twelve years and it ain't happened. Funny how the prohibitionists are always full of shit.
Colorado Campus Carry: 12 Years, No Mass Shootings, No Crimes by Permit Holders

Good

The Supreme Court said Tuesday that police may not extend an ordinary traffic stop to seek evidence of crimes unrelated to the offense that prompted officers to pull a vehicle over.

The justices voted 6-3 in favor of a driver who was found to have methamphetamine in his car. Dennys Rodriguez was issued a warning for driving on the shoulder of a Nebraska highway and then made to wait less than 10 minutes for officers to walk a drug-sniffing dog around the car. The dog alerted and a search of the vehicle turned up the drugs.

But Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in her majority opinion that prolonging the traffic stop beyond the time needed to deal with the initial offense was improper, even if only for a few minutes.

It doesn't end pretext stops by the police. but it does limit their utility.

So how many of your shooters had concealed carry permits?

Milwaukee Mayor, Police Chief Blame Rise in City's Gun Violence on Concealed Carry Law

A man is shot dead after accidentally crushing a toddler with his van; in the gunfire, the toddler's teenage brother suffers fatal injuries. A 17-year-old girl is slain by an errant bullet after two other girls in an argument call their boyfriends for backup. A 4-year-old girl is wounded after 13 bullets rip through her home.

So how many of these shooters had concealed carry permits? This is just bureaucrats trying to shift the blame from their own failure.

You'll pry my wrench from my cold dead hands.

H/T to Uncle.

Just don't let it go to your head.

Pew first: Gun rights top gun control in major public opinion shift

Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years.

H/T to Uncle.

So Rahm, What do you think about concealled carry now?

Yeah, I know. Stupid question.
Uber driver, licensed to carry gun, shoots gunman in Logan Square
In Chicago, a CCW permit holder sees a bad guy open fire into a crowd. He draws his weapon and shoots the bad guy ending a potential mass killing before it starts. The bad guy is the only person injured.

Perfect example of what a good gut with a gun can accomplish.

Marksmanship

Caught on camera: Officer shoots at dog in crowd of people during arrest in Brooklyn
...AND misses the dog. Taking that shot in a crowd was a negligent discharge of a weapon, and the officer needs to spend a few days at home without pay. Who wants to bet nothing is done at all?

Seriously. They need a judge to tell 'em this?
