Bloviating Zeppelin: More Gun Regulations: Not Just Coming, They're HERE

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

More Gun Regulations: Not Just Coming, They're HERE

Tim Frazier and I were just commenting about this general topic. Lead, toxicity, environmental regulations, ammunition.

From YahooNews:

WASHINGTON – The federal agency that monitors gun sales wants weapons dealers near the Mexican border to start reporting multiple sales of high-powered rifles, according to a notice published in the Federal Register.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has asked the White House budget office to approve an emergency request requiring border-area gun dealers to report the sales of two or more rifles to the same customer within a five-day period.

The emergency request, published Friday in the Federal Register, is likely to face stiff opposition from gun rights advocates, including the National Rifle Association. ATF wants the Office of Budget Management to approve the request by Jan. 5.

Perhaps on its face, not unreasonable considering the circumstances?

Do the BZ "logical extension."

Might you suppose these "emergent regulations" could find themselves migrating further north, west and east, my dearest readers?

Forewarned is forearmed.


Liberals & Leftists: please place an enlarged copy of this sign on the entryway to your home. Stand up! Proclaim loudly and smartly that you are "anti-gun"!

This is all tied into the 'supposed' gun transfers to Mexico... Any bets on how soon this goes nationwide, not just the border states?

This is what happens when the public is lied to over and over. No one trusts or believes you. A FEW weapons sold in the US end up in Mexico with the cartels. Any effort to stop the trafficking is suspect. Tough to be an honest cop (ATF) in a corrupt department.

NFO: and that, sir, was precisely my very point.

WSF: BATF still has a reputation sullied in the federal eye from way back at Waco, getting four agents killed needlessly in 1993.

Why are we surprised at this? We keep allowing big brother to "regulate" based on the cause of the day. For example: When California banned certain types of rifles and magazines of over 10 rounds, the logic was "Nobody needs more than ten rounds at a time, and high powered rifles are not hunting weapons oh and because gangs spray the area kids are getting killed"...There was some logic in that, SOME. NOW what has happened since then? Well now we can't buy ammo out of state or online. There have been several small steps to get to this one. The next one will be stamping ammo, registering all guns and limits on ammo/firearms in you possession. Then the biggy will come, A UK type ban on firearms...Its the small steps that folks don't see that set the stage for the next.
