A few questions, for everyone involved…

here:

How, exactly, does this “Moms Demand Action…” group support the Second Amendment? I mean, I’ve seen stories about this bunch since last year and in most of them I see this proclamation that they “support the Second Amendment,” but this support is never explained. It’s almost always followed by demands for stronger gun laws.

What is the website that Sandy Phillips refers to that lists “more than 70,000 guns are for sale in transactions that don’t require a background check”? After all, depending on the sale itself, this could be a bald-faced lie. If it involves a buyer in one state and the seller in another, then yes, it does require a background check.

And why did reporter Josh Baugh not bother to ask about this, or, for that matter, present a view from the other side?

Beyond all that, though…here we are again with that whole “we need to talk” bullshit. Yet again, we’ve had the talk. They just didn’t like the way it turned out. And you can bet that the whole “closing the private sale loophole” bit will be touted as a “good first step,” especially after it fails to make any impact — which it will. It’s not as if “closing the private sale loophole” is going to mean anything without a gun registration scheme anyway, and that’s going to be a no-go for myriad reasons — not the least of which being that it leads to things like confiscation.

(What? Oh, it was just a bunch of letters, you say? Well, what do you think is going to happen if someone sends a letter back telling the New York police to fuck right off, hmm?)

    Couple of things, yep – we’ve had the ‘talk’ for better than 40 years that I’ve been involved in it (actually a LOT longer – since GCA ’34 at least). And you are absolutely correct that ‘they’ don’t like how it turns out, yet they are always making ‘progress’ (ie stricter gun laws that don’t even slow the crooks down)
    As to their claim that they support the Second, well in a twisted sort of way they do – or at least their interpretation of it, which of course is that it does NOT apply to individuals. That’s one of their primary ‘arguments’ regarding gun control and always has been.
    And their ‘statistics’ are merely the 3rd lie that Mark Twain referred to. IF it were true, the atf would not have to be going out and ‘inventing’ crimes to justify their existence………….

    They support the 2nd Amendment by…
    ….Calling the cops on people from Open Carry Texas legally exercising their rights.

    ……by calling for an ‘assault weapon’ ban — you know one of the most popular semi-automatic rifles on the market.

    …..by wanting to ban online ammunition purchases.

    What they support is the fig leaf of cover provided by saying the support the 2nd Amendment. Pin them down (if you can) and you’ll get the usual “militia only” and the “militia is the National Guard” .
