Commentary from the National Rifle Association says new gun control legislation could be just around the corner:
…not long after Obama floated the idea of banning semi-automatic firearms, we learned that California Senator Dianne Feinstein was working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to draft new legislation that would ban semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and handguns, so-called “high capacity” magazines, and rifles and shotguns with pistol grips. Reportedly, Feinstein wants to make it illegal not just to sell your guns and magazines, but to leave them behind in your will.
Taking a step back, I can see the ATF’s point. After walking more than 2,000 guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords, they need a new source for weapons. What better way to get them than from the cold dead hands of law-abiding Americans?
