Hoplophobic harridan spouts bogus statistics in support of failed agenda . . . ‘Gun sense’ advocate visits Rock Island – “’States that have implemented background checks have already prevented nearly 300,000 gun sales to domestic abusers,’ she said. ‘In states with stronger background checks, there are 47 percent fewer women shot, 47 percent fewer gun injuries in domestic violence situations and 53 percent fewer law enforcement officers shot and killed in the line of duty. This is something that affects us all.’” We defy her to provide support for any of those “statistics.”
Undoing the damage . . . House Republicans consider little-used act to repeal gun rules for Social Security recipients – “House Republicans will move this week to wipe out a series of rules finalized in the closing days of the Obama administration, including one that could prevent certain Social Security recipients from purchasing guns. Under the rule — part of President Obama’s gun control push — Social Security was to scour its lists for people receiving certain disability payments who were deemed mentally impaired, then flag their names in the national gun-purchasing background-check system.”
In the District, illegal guns range from the ordinary to the exotic – “This month alone, the list of confiscated pistols includes an array of weaponry of makes that include Cougar and Desert Eagle, High Point and Llama. Also turning up in police descriptions of items taken off the streets are the brands H&E and Radom. On city streets, talk of Taurus may be of the zodiac symbol. But it is also a brand of pistol, in addition to the one found Jan. 22, several others were seized this month. Perhaps one of the least familiar, and possibly most exotic, was one seized Jan. 7. It was apparently made by a firm in Serbia and was called a Zastava.” Bless their hearts. Remember, no one writing or editing at the The Washington Post has even the slightest knowledge of their topic when subject is guns.
Look Ma, no ear pro! New from Witt Machine: “Witt Machine & Tool has been doing some suppression magic well under most people’s radar. Mostly known for their true Integrally Suppressed AR15 uppers that used 16″ barrels and now a quieter integrated version with a pinned monocore; with no exception this Integrally Suppressed Ruger Precision Rifle is more than impressive. The proof of concept and prototype was done using a Ruger Precision Rifle .308 with a 20 factory barrel. Finished the overall barrel length now comes in at 28″.” Expect production models in mid 2017.

Lake County sheriff wants his guns back – “Lake County Sheriff John Buncich would like his sidearms back. A defense attorney for the sheriff is petitioning a U.S. District Court judge for the return of the weapons he surrendered last year when he was charged with fraud and bribery. The U.S. attorney’s office charged Buncich Nov. 18 with felony fraud and bribery charges alleging he solicited and received money from towing firms seeking business from county police.” No doubt any citizen in Indiana would be afforded the same consideration.
No. Next question . . . Do Americans want to buy ‘smart’ guns? – “My own research focuses heavily on gun purchasing and teen gun carrying.
