Democrats will find any way they can to attack your civil rights.
Being practical, they know they’re not going to ban guns outright anytime real soon – at least not via the political process.
But they can regulate every peripheral part of the firearms industry out of existence by executive fiat.
Regulators, operating beyond legislative oversight, have essentially banned gun stores from the Twin Cities or the inner ring of suburbs. And regulations in DFL-clotted cities and ‘burbs have made gun ranges nearly a thing of the past anywhere within 30 miles of either downtown.
Burnsville Pistol Range – “BPR” – has been an exception. The Burnsville institution is probably the closest range to the Twin Cities available to the general civilian public. They had a fire last week; their ventilation system caught fire, and damaged part of the rifle range.
They’re working hard to re-open – but regular reader Kevin writes to note that the Feds may have other plans:
as they repair and plan for reopening after the fire the BPR people should prepare themselves for an OSHA inspection along the lines of the one described in the [linked] file detailing the “violations” OSHA found at the Illinois Gun Works Ltd
Obama’s OSHA working with the EPA could systematically reduce the number of gun ranges nationwide to a tiny very expensive few within the next 4 years using the methods exhibited in this set of citations.
Make no mistake – Obama has used every means at his disposal, including the systematic defrauding of the American people using the Justice Department (to say nothing of the vapid demigogueing of the Trayvon Martin case) to make whatever dent possible in the law-abiding Ameircan”s civil right to keep and bear arms.
If you are a shooter – whether hunter or defensive – it is absolutely imperative to get Obama out of office.
