    A single 124 grain piece of lead about 0.356″ in diameter and traveling at a velocity of about 1200 fps would have solved this problem.

    This idea either started or was propagated quite early by Karl Denninger at The Market Ticker (market-ticker.org).

    The War Powers Resolution is unconstitutional – Congress cannot simply override the Constitution because they don’t think they need 100% of the power to declare war.

    To determine what the proper course of action is, the President need only consult with a history book about Jefferson’s actions in the First Barbary War. Jefferson explicitly avoided offensive action with the Navy until Congress authorized him to do otherwise. See his first inaugural address in 1801.

    This is should be brought to the attention of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), who is likely to be involved in any litigation regarding this issue.

    I used to live in an apparently City of Boulder-owned apartment complex (it was a weird public/private endeavor) which also banned firearms. I kept them in my apartment anyway, since government cannot prohibit an individual from exercising his Constitutional rights. I suspect the same is true for a private apartment complex, however I’m not aware of whether the Court has weighed in on this issue quite yet.

    Similarly, as best as I recall, a private company cannot prohibit you from possessing a firearm within your vehicle even if parked on their land since a vehicle is essentially an extension of the home. Under this reasoning, an apartment complex could not prohibit you from possessing a firearm within an apartment, since it is your home.

    In any case, I seriously doubt a Court would uphold evictions of existing tenants for firearm ownership, but they may allow future tenants to be rejected since property rights are also a foundational right enjoyed in this country (more or less).

    Rand Paul gains national acclaim by filibustering in support of the Fifth Amendment right to a trial.

    Wendy Davis gains national acclaim by filibustering in support of murdering unborn children as a form of birth control.

    Something is seriously wrong here.

    …and actually, the muzzle energy they report is off significantly. Typical 5.56 NATO is about 1,300 ft-lbs while 7.62×39 is about 2,000 ft-lbs. Other than firing in virtually any condition, the AK47 does have an advantage of higher energy projectiles (of course, this makes no difference if you’re shooting a 10 MOA weapon – you MIGHT hit the broad side of a barn, lol…)

    Um… a couple of things are wrong with this graphic:

    1. The 5.56 and 7.62×39 cartridges are on the wrong sides.
    2. Muzzle energy is not measured in “feet.”
    3. The magazine graphic is for a pistol.
    4. An accuracy of 6 – 8 MOA (6-8″ at 100 yds) for an AR-15? Maybe a Russian import, but I’ve never seen an American AR-15 that shot greater than 2 MOA out of the box and most will do 1 MOA with a proficient shooter.

    IMHO, the advantage to the AK-47 is that you can throw it in a mud puddle, leave it for 50 years, and then pick it right back up and start shooting. That’s what you gain with low manufacturing tolerances. Otherwise, the stamped receiver and loose tolerances make for an inaccurate, cheap rifle. There’s a reason you don’t see many AK47s at precision shooting events, but there are frequently AR-15 pattern rifles.

    I’d take an AR-15 (or more likely an LR-308) any day of the week.

    This does not appear to be a big deal, as Secret Service does not act on enforcement of federal law with the exception of counterfeiting.

    If Justin Smith doesn’t have a problem with this law, I don’t really either, considering that Smith is the most outspoken Colorado Sheriff against the recent gun control laws.

    There are plenty of things we should be paying attention to – this doesn’t seem to be one of them.

    I think we’re overreacting here a little bit…

    The guy’s finger is either in front of the trigger guard (first video) or behind it (second video), clearly not on it. We have no idea if he’s pointing it in a safe direction, which doesn’t necessarily mean up or down, so criticizing him on this is nonsense. I’m also not aware of a shotgun which allows the bolt to be locked open – in mine, the default position is closed and there is no ‘slide lock’ like on a pistol.

    Whoever is criticizing these videos really needs to pay more attention. Bloomberg is doing more than enough to be criticized on – can we at least pick something legitimate rather than grasping at straws?

    Sounds like another botard who thinks the Second Amendment is about “Sportmans’ Rights.” So strange that hunting appears nowhere in the Federalist papers.

    The biggest tragedy of all of this is now these firearms are going to be melted down into worthless scrap metal rather than re-sold to lawful gun owners to add to a collection – many of them look like they’ve got some history. Five full auto weapons? If they’re pre-1986 and registered, those babies are worth $5,000 each easy. How stupid to turn them over for $250.

    I’d strongly recommend reading the Opinion of the Court, including dissent, of DC v. Heller (2008) and the incorporation against the states in McDonald v. Chicago (2010). Very vibrant discussion of both sides, with the majority addressing both banning an entire class of arms (handguns) and the policy choices of legislatures. The self defense and militia arguments are covered quite thoroughly.

    It’s good that the NRA waited to comment out of respect for the victims. Defending gun rights in the face of overwhelming tragedy is a difficult task for anybody and virtually impossible to do without coming across as insensitive and callous.

    That said, if the NRA caves on assault weapons or magazine capacity limitations to appease the emotional knee jerk legislative response that always arises after these things, my faith in them will be shaken for the last time.

    For those in the mountain west (particularly Colorado), if the NRA caves on gun rights over the risk of “looking bad,” consider investing your time and membership dues instead in someplace like Rocky Mountain Gun Owners – there is major legislation coming in the Colorado legislature next session on assault weapons and plenty of other things and RMGO is likely to be leading the defensive charge.

    Attention The Blaze – it’s MARK Udall, if we’re being accurate.

    Another good scripture from Proverbs 12:16:

    “When a fool is annoyed, he quickly lets it be known. Smart people will ignore an insult.”

    @Raymond:

    Yes, you are of course correct. I was not commenting on the “here’s” in the headline, “Here‘s what the national paper’s say…”

    I was commenting on the “paper’s,” which I thought was quite obvious.

  • October 12, 2012 at 1:03pm

    I’m sorry to say it, but The Blaze has really gone downhill over the last couple of months. There used to be the occasional typo, but now I’m routinely seeing noticeable grammatical errors even in HEADLINES – “Here‘s what the national paper’s say…” Excuse me, Mr. Scarry, but an apostrophe is not needed in every word that ends with an “s.” It might be beneficial to check your posts for grammar before publishing – this is getting ridiculous and unprofessional.

    Add to that the seeming redirection away from being a hard hitting, detailed news site that is publishing the important things we aren’t hearing about elsewhere. Now, the drive seems to be to turn The Blaze into a glorified Twitter, where the goal is to post as many “articles” as possible, each containing 160 words or less.

    This is really quite sad, as The Blaze was groundbreaking when it started and I was a daily reader. It seems to have lost quite a bit of steam, and the quality has gone downhill rapidly.

    @SUMOMOSES

    …that’s the problem with non-christians, they always cherry-pick anecdotes that support their beliefs, and ignore the plethora of other cases that would indicate the contrary.

    I also have trouble buying into the outrage since the Catholic Church was at least partly in support of Obamacare, which (despite the President’s insistence that his executive order could overrule Congress) provided public funding for abortion. As horrible as abortion is, the Catholic Church shouldn’t be the least bit surprised by this – they got into bed with an out of control federal government knowing this could eventually happen. They made their bed and now seem outraged that they have to lie in it. Outrage at this point is hypocritical rather than indignant…

    We can only expect God to be tolerant of this for so long. This is now literally defiling God’s house. If there has ever been a reason to believe that there is truly a battle of good vs evil under way, this is it.

    “And forces shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the fortress, and shall take away the continual [burnt-offering], and they shall set up the abomination that maketh desolate.” Daniel 11:31
