Gun-grabbers don’t quit

Senators Frank Lautenberg and Chuck Schumer, two of the Senate's most famous gun-grabbers are at it again.

This time, they're trying to insert a ban on clips, feed strips, and belts of more than 10 rounds of ammunition to the so-called "Cybersecurity" Act of 2012, S. 3414, that C4L previously asked our supporters to oppose.

This knee-jerk reaction to the tragedy in Colorado is an example of exploiting tragedy for political gain at its worst.

Senator Schumer believes that passing laws to restrict the legal access to firearms will prevent "unneccessary casualties."

Sadly, we all know this isn't the case. Criminals don't follow the law, that's why they're criminals. The only thing regulation of firearms will accomplish is in creating more law-abiding victims.

The Second Amendment isn't simply about hunting or sports. Though ripping off 100 tracer rounds out of an automatic rifle at exploding targets sure does look fun. (Don't believe me? Just looks at this 2010 video of the Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot.)

Owning firearms is about self-defense and a citizens' last defense against a tyrannical government. That's the right of every American, and one that we should fight tooth & nail to defend.
