In the meantime, I always like it when the other side sticks their proverbial foot into their proverbial mouths (or up their proverbial butts, and the case may be). This week's Bullet Points from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reports that two major newspapers, the LA Times and the Oregonian, had to eat crow after printing Brady Center "talking points" as fact on their editorial pages. Similar to a couple of years ago wthen the NTY ansd CBS had to retract "talking points" from the Violence Policy Center.
This comes in the wake of a weekend story in the Gray Lady (snore, nod, the New York Times) that the expiration of the AWB resulted in...nothing:
Despite dire predictions that the streets would be awash in military-style guns, the expiration of the decade-long assault weapons ban last September has not set off a sustained surge in the weapons' sales, gun makers and sellers say. It also has not caused any noticeable increase in gun crime in the past seven months, according to several metropolitan police departments.Of course the Times story does its best to fret and worry about the fact that nothing happened. I loved the display given to that idiot Dianne Feinstein's push for a new AWB. Considering that the first AWB is credited with credited with the 1994 Republican takeover of Congress, which the Demo are still reeling from, what do you suppose is the likelihood of this Congress passing similar legislation? That's right! They'll get to it right after they vote to lower their own salaries!
