Guns & Hunting Thread (1-27-2013)

The Battle Lines Are Being Drawn

Since gun control is working so well in Chicago ...

This is a hold up: Rahm Emanuel takes gun battle to banks

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is taking his gun control push to private banks and asking major lenders in Chicago to stop doing business with firearms manufacturers.

In a letter to TD Bank and Bank of America on Thursday, Mr. Emanuel asked the CEOs to force gun manufacturers they do business with to “find common ground with the vast majority of Americans who support a military weapons and ammunition ban.”

Gun range prohibits police after city considers ban

A rural Vermont firing range has told the police department in Burlington that its officers are unwelcome to train at the facility because the City Council has advanced a measure to ban semi-automatic rifles and large-capacity magazines in the state's largest city.

Diane Feinstein introduced her ridiculous gun control bill this week, and people across the political spectrum pretty well laughed it off. But make no mistake, the left will continue this push for gun control using all means at their disposal. It must be resisted at every turn, so hats off to that Vermont gun range and every business like it that stands solidly behind our second amendment rights.

I credit Ronnie Barrett of Barrett Firearms with setting the gold standard for telling gun grabbing politicians to get bent. Follow that link to read Barrett's letter in its entirety. It can't really be excerpted well and I don't want to copy the whole thing into the thread.

While we're in the neighborhood ...

That is, of course, the LAPD's Barrett M82A1 that, to the best of my knowledge, remains in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

The futility of banning simple technology

As a law-abiding citizen, I'd have to jump through a lot of hoops to get a legal sound suppressor. A criminal, not so much:

The Hickock45 YouTube channel is like second amendment pr0n. Thanks again to 'Flounder' for the tip.
