Oh look…another Hollywood mogul who doesn’t like guns: ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Producer Launches Campaign to Defeat NRA – “How to Get Away with Murder executive producer Bill D’Elia just launched Make US Safer, a campaign designed to defeat the NRA by raising money for Congressional candidates who support more restrictions on the Second Amendment. D’Elia also produced Chicago Hope and Boston Legal. He said he began thinking about incorporating themes about “the gun issue” into his projects in the late 1990s, but a phone call received from gun control advocate Jim Brady pushed him to do more.” Isn’t it a little late in the election cycle to get this going?
Dems want to bring some California to the mitten: Michigan: Anti-Gun Lawmakers Introduce Gun and Magazine Ban Legislation – “Yesterday, a package of anti-gun bills were introduced in the Michigan Legislature. House Bill 5996, introduced by state Representative Wittenberg (D-27), would ban the manufacture, possession, purchase, sale and transfer of so-called ‘assault weapons.’ Additionally, this bill would ban the use of detachable magazines capable of containing more than 10 rounds of ammunition. ‘Assault weapons,’ as defined in the legislation, would encompass the most commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles and handguns.'”
Well, gun-free zones don’t work comes immediately to mind: What 130 of the Worst Shootings Say About Guns in America – “Nationwide, several polls suggest that public opinion has shifted markedly in favor of stricter gun laws. And for the first time since Al Gore called for tighter firearm restrictions in his losing 2000 campaign, gun control is a top-level issue in the presidential contest, as well as in two close Senate races and four state ballot initiatives. ‘The national dialogue has changed,’ said Prof. Robert J. Spitzer of the State University of New York at Cortland, who has written five books on gun policy.”
Controversial sign sparks conversation about free speech, gun rights – “The owner of North Fort Myers Guns at 1246 N. Tamiami Trail, declined requests for comment Thursday, saying his sign does all the talking. But the sign makes a suggestion about Obama and Clinton’s stances on gun control. The idea that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton wishes to repeal the Second Amendment is one that has been repeated by her rival for the presidency, Donald Trump, on the campaign trail. But his comments get Clinton’s gun policies wrong, as many fact-checking sites have noted. In Wednesday’s final presidential debate, Clinton explicitly cited the historical importance of gun rights.” Of course she did.
