Bad: The Obama Administration and the Senate’s Diane Feinswine (Hypocrite, CA) think they have the momentum to push more victim disarmament 
Worse: The GOP may prove them right.
Republicans control the House and, thus, could be expected as the party of Second Amendment rights to be ready to stop whatever the president and the Democrats come up with in the Senate. But the Doc Thompson radio show has posted what it is says is correspondence with a source in one of the Republican congressional leaders’ offices. The emails were apparently exchanged between December 27 and 30.

The crucial email is the one sent at 3:06 pm on the 27th. The source notes that Newtown would not have been prevented if Feinstein’s bill had been law, but allows that the Republicans may assist in banning “high-capacity magazines” and move on background checks, along with mental health and enforcement of existing law.
I use the term “victim disarmament”, since none of Feinswine’s proposals would have the faintest effect on criminal use of firearms; they’d place the entire burden on the law-abiding. As always.
The Newtown killer may have been stalled by the NICS — some reports say that he attempted to buy a gun at a sporting goods store but failed — but he clearly was not stopped. He apparently stole his guns from his mother, killed her, and then went on his rampage. His mother had no criminal background and owned the guns legally. The Webster, NY shooter was a known career felon and could not have bought his guns legally. So, as criminals do, he found a way around the system. He either stole the guns he used from his neighbor, or he used her as a straw purchaser to get the guns for him. His neighbor, Dawn Nguyen, has been arrested and charged with being his straw buyer two years ago. She reportedly says that Spangler stole the guns, but he was with her when she bought them, and she never reported them stolen.
OK, let’s get down to brass tacks. Any Republican that betrays the Second Amendment can count having their electoral head held underwater until the political convulsions stop. I’m speaking purely rhetorically, here.
Any Republicans entertaining ideas of going along with any Democrat ban should realize that they’re being played by the Democrats and the media, again.
If you are a Real American – ergo, a supporter of the Second Amendment, as defined in the Constitution, reiterated in Heller, and incorporated on
your masters the states by McDonald, you need to call your representatives.

Please contact Walz and Peterson because they’ve always run as 2nd-Amendment-friendly Democrats; they need to be kept honest.
Contact Kline and Paulsen because I’m not aware that either has really had a 2nd-Amendment hot potato on their legislative plate. While I have every confidence that neither of them are idiots, they need to know how their Real American constituents feel. Over and over again.
As to Rep. Bachmann? Contact her to thank her for being a stalwart on the issue, and for spitting tacks at those who’d say nay.
And Ellison and McCollum? They might as well know that we Real Americans outnumbers the pants-wetting class and their ilk.
 I refuse, any more, to use the Orwellian “gun control” to refer to the left’s mania to disarm the law-abiding. It is nothing but victim disarmament. The more Real Americans refer to it as such, the more people will get the idea.
You with me on this?
