An active duty US Army officer, Lt Colonel Robert Bateman said it was time for a national conversation on gun control, meaning it is time for yet another lecture from the terminally fascist.

If Lt. Col Bateman has his way the only guns allowed to be sold will be black powder smoothbore guns, break open shotguns and army rifles with five round capacity max. He also said, yes he will pry guns from your cold dead fingers.

Not really in response, but serendipitously published comes this article which describes the mayhem a confederate civilian sniper in western Tennessee caused with his smooth bore .50 caliber rifle. As many as 36 Yankee soldiers joined the choir invisible, and as many as 80 others were grievously or mortally wounded and later died.

Elsewhere, NYC police are preparing to confiscate guns which do not comply with New York's unconstitutional ban on magazines. And they said it can't happen here.

Not to single out New York, but California is already seizing guns from citizens who have run afoul of the law. People like myself who made a mistake, and who will never for so long as they live be able to purchase a firearms using the national system. Fascists take about amnesty for illegal immigrants, how about amnesty for those who have been afoul of the numerous unconstitutional gun laws?

Lastly, organizers of a memorial service for the Sandy Hook Massacre had to cancel the event due to low ticket sales. Seems folks don't want to pay for the privilege of being lectured to by statists.
