The ladies at Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. are spending this week whining that they aren’t getting enough attention. Saturday the 14th is their big event, where they will ring bells in churches and “demand” “action.” I guess they believe that because they are moms that we’ll sit back and let them take away our rights.
I have one burning question for them.
These Moms are demanding the following actions.
- Require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases;
- Ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds;
- Track the sale of large quantities of ammunition, and ban online sales;
- Establish product safety oversight of guns and ammunition, and require child-safe gun technology;
- Support policies at companies and public institutions that promote gun safety;
- Counter the gun industry’s efforts to weaken gun laws at the state level.
Let’s break that down.
- Ban on all private transfers. Given the previous attempts, that means they will criminalize me handing my rifle to my friend who will use it to teach my wife to shoot.
- Since the leader of the Moms seems to think that anything that will allow you to shoot 10 rounds in a minute is an “Assault Weapon,” I would assume that they mean to ban everything, along with all of my pistol magazines.
- Registration of all ammo sales so they can track them. If you don’t think that will include components for reloading, you’re a fool.
- They will unilaterally require the redesign of all firearms to add “safety features” that no one who has a firearm actually wants. Like expensive and useless “smart” guns that will price poor people out of the self-defense market.
- Ban guns in restaurants, stores, and basically any public place.
- This one’s actually pretty funny. They don’t have the manpower (or Mompower) to match us out here in the state capitals.
I’ve got news for the Moms. I already have a mom. And she has a Glock 19.
