Tucson City Council bans sale of high-capacity guns at TCC – “Any weapon capable of firing 10 or more rounds can no longer be sold at the Tucson Convention Center. The Tucson City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to add more restrictions on private gun sales at the city-owned venue.” Whoa. The convention center must have somehow morphed into some kind of dangerous Middle East-style gun bazaar, no? No. “It is unlikely the new regulations will make a dent in local gun sales — it has been more than three years since there was a private gun show at the TCC.” Another mighty blow struck for “gun safety.”

Enough is Enough – “Now if I were king, I would ban assault rifles, handguns and ammunition, shut down gun manufacturers, outlaw hunting and make vegetarianism mandatory. And I would also throw the Second Amendment onto the Constitutional scrap heap. Too much? OK, how about this?

Owing to the wisdom of the Founders, he’s one vote in a constitutional republic. Just like the rest of us.

Today’s tantrum: Democrats Launch Another Protest Over Guns on House Floor – “Mr. Speaker, we have many more to read. We have far more to read. We are far from complete. And we are just talking about 2016. We will continue,” Seth Moulton of Massachusetts said Thursday in the latest Democratic expression of civil disobedience on the House floor over inaction on gun control. Moulton read from a list that included the names and ages of gun violence victims. Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer handed Democratic members a page with each victim’s name and photograph to hold up. Their protest continued after the gavel came down, signaling a brief recess in the day’s formal proceedings. Their willingness to buck protocol again dismayed the Republican leadership and gummed up the schedule of daily business as the chamber looks toward its summer break.
