In case you were wondering, waiting on the court to decide in favor of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, you'll be waiting a long time. The courts have long been in the thrall of gun fascists.

The Washington Post has decided to deal with the issue of 80 percent receivers in much the same way you'd expect: as though it is some loophole in the law. A previous Wapo editorial lamented that their antigun message has not been properly tweaked,otherwise the government would be confiscating arms because of "common sense gun laws".

Speaking of gun grabbers, the astroturf antigun operation Moms Demand Action was caught lying about an incident in Ft. Worth in which employees in a Jack in the Box restaurant locked themselves inside the freezer at the sight of men carrying ARs. But there they were in the photo: gun owners in an embrace with the restaurant owner, toothy grins all.

You may have noticed the Clinton Apology Tour, 2014, which includes rants against RKBA. The fear amongst the elite is that her shooting her mouth off about guns may have jeopardized her run to the White House. What? Were that true, Obama would have never been elected.

Quoth Hillary: "...at the rate we're going, we're going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated in settings like movie theaters where shootings have arisen over seemingly mundane things like loud gum chewing or cellphone use."

Not if we can avoid it...

Loads.
