It took an anti-gun veteran like Diane Feinstein almost no time to run off a bill to outlaw bump fire stocks and introduce it in the Senate. Her staff probably has draft Word docs of everything from magazine limit bills to outright Australian-style gun confiscation laws in a handy-dandy folder, right there on there laptops. Never let a crisis go to waste, and all that.
So imagine the surprise and disappointment among members of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex when all House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi could manage in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre was to babble something about saving lives via universal background checks. That simply won’t satisfy a dedicated gun-grabber like our pal Ladd Everitt.
The One Pulse for America director doesn’t have time for geriatric pablum. As someone who has no problem with violence in pursuit of his anti-Second Amendment agenda, he wants to see another federal assault weapons ban enacted. Pronto.
So we decided to point out the fact that a political creature like San Fran Nan knows good and well that an assault weapons bill proposed in a Republican-controlled Congress — with a Republican president in the White House, no less — has about as much chance of passing as Jimmy Kimmel has of being funny.
Isn’t that precious. Ladd thinks that even if Pelosi or some other congresscritter introduces an assault weapons ban bill — and that seems a sure thing — that it would actually get as far as a floor vote. Bless his heart.
You keep plugging away, Ladd.
