The Bloomberg anti-gun hydra has sprouted another head, with the intention of affecting another state election. This time it is up in the Great Northeast as Mainers for Responsible Gun Ownership. If their founding by Bloomberg were not confirmed by the Washington Times, it would be self evident by their Facebook title picture in which they are all wearing orange for gun violence.
They are trying to raise funds using Grandpa and Grandson Fudd, pulling the “I’m not a racist, I have a black friend” argument for gun control.
What they are asking for is universal background checks. Why? Because loophole, that’s why. The “40% of guns criminals use they get through sales with no background checks” claim has been stated and debunked so many times it holds no meaning any more. Either you believe it because politics is your religion and you take crap this this as an article of faith, or you don’t.
What I know is that universal background checks, the way the anti-gunners and Left want them, won’t reduce crime and will be a massive inconvenience to gun owners.
I have a buddy who is the 1911 whisperer. He has tuned and dressed 1911’s for world champion shooters, Hollywood movies, and celebrities alike. For him, there is no such thing as 1911 vs Glock. For him, the debate begins and ends with Series 70 vs Seires 80. Come to think of it, I don’t think he can say “Glock.” This is a man that leaves no sear un-stoned. His “beater” 1911 would make Bill Wilson green with envy. I’m pretty sure his prophylactics have a Novak cut. He bleeds cold blue and if he cried, it would be 230 grain hard ball.
This man will tune 1911’s for me for a handshake and a six-pack. Who needs Cylinder and Slide when you have friends like this? The think is, he’s not a gunsmith. He’s just a gun nut and has been around them forever. So ever time I need a tweeking for a carry gun or something, I’d have to 4473 this man, who goes to work and plays with guns every day for a living. Because… loophole.
How about not.
This is not about public safety. Remember, Adam Lanza – which is where this whole 91% support universal background checks bullshit started – stole his gun from his mother after he killed her. This is just another level of control. Another way for anti-gunners to criminalize normal gun culture behavior and punish us. Illinois’ universal background checks don’t stop the killings in Chicago. What makes any reasonable person think that it will make a difference in any of the other 49 states?
Mainers, vote no. And if this Fudd is really a Maine hunter. If you see him at the hunting lodge, give him a one-finger salute for me.
