The Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization is helping antigun mayors with fig leaves to impose gun control by inviting individuals to send postcards demanding more gun control.

Apparently a big push is starting in Pennsylvania for "common sense gun control laws". A bus tour is set to go to 25 states to pressure congressmen to impose even greater constrictions on firearms. Without a doubt part of the Democratic Party's drive to retake the House in 2014.

KeyBanc Capital is reporting that gun manufacturers' stock may be ready to fall this fall. It appears that supply is finally catching up to demand. Unfortunately the fascist impulses of antigunners is intensifying.

New York is touting its latest victory against illegal guns, by luring criminals into selling illegally obtained guns. The mix is about what you'd expect. Every one of the guns were illegally obtained, 90 percent were stolen, the rest acquired through straw purchases. Maybe we need common sense cop control.
