Another gun control ‘measure’…


What next? You can ONLY buy one box of ammo at a time???

From NBC Connecticut website HERE.

Lawmakers across the state are taking on gun control issues in the aftermath of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14.

State Rep. Stephen Dargen, a Democratic legislator from West Haven, wants the names and addresses of about 170,000 handgun permit holders in the state to be made public.

State Senator Martin Looney, of New Haven, is proposing ammunition control legislation, which would prohibit anyone barred from owning a gun from owning bullets or any other kind of ammunition.

“A gun without ammunition is only a club. We really need to restrict access to ammunition,” Looney said.

I’d say make sure you have ‘all’ the ammo you need, as this ‘may’ be the alternate plan…

  1. Getting all sorts of crazy out there. In Houston the Texas Dept. of Transportation (TxDOT) decided it was ‘inappropriate’ to use digital freeway signs to provide directions to gun shows.

    That was later overruled by state officials, who pointed out the signs were for traffic control, not gun-show promotion.


  2. It amazes me the absurdity of the stuff these people say, and, sadly, I don’t thing they really give a shit about gun control. They are just riding the wave of emotions to make headlines for themselves.

  3. Let me get this straight.

    If it’s illegal for someone to own a gun, making it illegal for them to own ammunition too will make the illegal gun that they own unusable?

    Because they will be unable or unwilling to break the law (again) by obtaining illegal ammunition for their illegal gun?

    What planet does this genius live on? Is “Looney” actually his name, or his mental state? And exactly how stupid do his constituents have to have been to elect him?

  4. Sailorcurt, aren’t firearm Prohibited Persons already ammunition Prohibited Persons by Federal statute?

    To more than one parolee’s surprise…

  5. MM- Yep…

    LL- I’ve got 3k inbound…

    Tim- LOL

    CP/WSF- concur, their 15 sec of fame.

    PH- Yep 🙂

    Keads- Don’t EVEN ask… sigh

    Sailorcurt- All of the above…LOL

    Rick- You are correct!

  6. Mr. Coffee: don’t think it is a simple game of “look mommy!” headline grabbing. There is always an urge to power among the bitter “master-minds,” as Mark Levin (radio-host) calls them. A weapon of war in the hands of a man at liberty is a terrible, horrible obstacle for the ever-so-smart types… & they know it. Their greatest fear is being ignored by the great mass and “class” of people just hangin’ out, havin’ a brew, smokin’ & jokin’.

  7. This absolutely makes as much sense as the “Trillion Dollar “coin they’re talking about.
    I’d suggest investing in cap and ball revolvers – Cabelas’s has some nice reproductions at very reasonable prices.

  8. Russell- excellent point, and when ‘we’ peons have the capability to back them down, they REALLY hate it!

    Rick- Yep!

    JUGM- Yes she did 😀

    Hunt- Thanks!
