How to "Control" Guns: Let Us Count the Ways

Bloomberg's bunch (Mayors Against Illegal Guns) has found 40 ways to impinge on the 2A.

You remember the 2A? "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed...." Well, "impinge" is not the same as "infringe," right?

So there you have it. Congress will not make any laws under these schemes; it's just "regulatory", you know.

Here are a few of Bloomie's ideas:

Require REAL ID compliant identification for all gun purchasers. Those in non-complying states, which are many, will no longer be permitted to buy firearms.

(Wisconsin is NOT 'REAL ID' compliant.)

Lots of recommendations for new record keeping requirements on the part of FFLs

(Added costs, not to mention ways by which BATF/E can screw with dealer's heads over missing commas, non-dotted "i"'s, etc. And they WILL screw with dealers.)

Extend the multiple purchase reporting requirement to long guns, especially ARs, 50 caliber firearms, and Kalashnikov variants.

Recommends a ban on the importation of all “non-sporting” firearms and ammunition, and specifically calls for banning the FN Five-Seven.

Define "sporting." AK's are fine deer-killers, and the FN Five-Seven is a personal-defense weapon.

Snowflakes is convinced that the author(s) of these recc's are intimately familiar with BATF/E regs, strengths, and weaknesses. And of course, we know that Holder and his Supreme Leader Obama are perfectly happy to disarm citizens.

How do you counter this crap?

Here's a possibility: BUY MORE AMMO!!

Oh, by the way: Bloomie's Bunch includes Tom Barrett (Candidate for Governor), Dave Cieslewicz (Madistan, the Snow-Town), Tom Ratzlaff (Park Falls), Richard Johns (Rhinelander !!!), Al Richards (St. Francis), Larry Nelson (Waukesha) and Christine Deiss (West Bend.)
