Common Nonsense Gun Control Measures

Barack Obama is in the process of rolling out a series of executive orders to implement several common nonsense gun control measures. (By common nonsense I mean the usual proposals that seem to make progressives feel good, but have no real world effect on crime other than turning otherwise law-abiding citizens into criminals.) This will apparently include measures designed to plug the non-existent gun show loophole.

Most of the usual suspects on the left have made appreciative noises, but a few are expressing disappointment that the President isn’t moving more aggressively to suppress Second Amendment rights.

  1. So he adds more rules for criminals to ignore, and never addresses the real issues.

    Must hurt patting yourself on the back when doing so little.


  2. I gave this post a thumbs-down. Not because I don’t think this needs to be discussed, but because of what our “betters” have decided is the “best” for us. I cannot get behind leadership that is so unbelieveably STUPID on this subject. I mean, I’m not fond of this administration. However this is just one more on the pile of asininity that we are now being subjected to. I weep for our children and our children’s children.


  3. I’m wondering about the “background checks on online sales”. How is that going to work? Right now if I buy a gun on Gunbroker.com I need to have it shipped to an FFL near me and I go there to do the background check before I can pick up the gun. I’m not sure what needs to be fixed there.
