Paul The Pooh and The Blustery Day

This came across my email a couple of days ago.

The point is, does it have some teeth, or it is just BLUSTER?

(from Gun Owners of America, in part)


Don’t Let Ryan Get Away with Any 2A Infringements!

Dear Guffaw,

This is becoming painful to watch.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is now asking — begging, really — the Trump administration to unilaterally impose gun control restrictions.

And there is virtually no conceivable way that these restrictions will fall short of eventually regulating or banning your detachable magazines.

“We think the regulatory fix is the smartest, quickest fix,” Ryan said.

What was he talking about?

The Hill explains:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday the Trump administration should move quickly to ban a device used in the Las Vegas mass shooting that allows semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.

So Speaker Ryan is urging the ATF to ban bump stocks — even while he has indefinitely pushed back the pro-gun agenda.

But there are two major problems with this.

First, there is no way that Congress — or the administration — will be able to ban or regulate bump stocks without also opening the door to prohibitions on other parts, accessories and magazines.

This is because all of the legislative proposals currently on the table would ban ANY item or device that helps “accelerate the rate of fire” of a semi-automatic firearm.

Using that standard, you can kiss your detachable magazines goodbye!

But the other problem is this:  The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents the federal government from imposing ANY infringements upon our gun rights.

If the Trump administration starts supporting infringements — even if they are so-called minor ones — it will weaken their ability and resolve to oppose the next set of infringements that come down the pike.

Take Action and Put the Heat on Congress!

Please contact Your Representative and communicate the following:

1. Uphold your oath of office.  Do not support ANY infringements upon the Second Amendment — including those that would jeopardize detachable magazines.

2. Tell Speaker Paul Ryan to STOP compromising.  If legislators want to follow Ryan off a political cliff, they will truly regret it when voters “remember in November.”

We need to let Ryan know that millions of gun owners oppose his compromises, which will endanger our ability to own detachable magazines.

Plus, he needs to know that there will be SERIOUS ramifications at the polls if he and other Republicans do not stand up for our Second Amendment rights.

We are in a political war to preserve our gun rights.

I want to thank you for your help in putting the heat on your legislators.

So please take action, and urge your family and friends to do so, as well.

My apologies – having some issues here at home, I’ve not been as diligent as I have in the past regarding the fall-De-rall as I usually am regarding the silliness on the Hill.

And while I do support and respect Gun Owners of America, sometimes they get over excited in the name of financial support (learning from the NRA?)

So, what do you guys thing?  Bluster or real danger?

  1. Where Congress is involved, the danger is ALWAYS real. No brains, no soul, all procedure.

  2. Agree with Rev, and make note, Ryan DOES NOT want to touch that third rail, he wants to pawn it off on BATFE…

  3. R’s –> Congressional Cowards. They let the antis form the language.
    The very anti 2A experts at making the language mean what they want it to mean at that moment – but necessarily not what it will mean when YOU get pinged.

    This should all work out just fine…. {{eyeroll}}
