More Brilliance from DC

“Today’s vote puts the District at the forefront of using regulation to reduce gun violence, rather than the simpler, prior approach of hoping that an outright ban will be effective.”

You see the logic in that statement, right? “Because banning all guns outright didn’t do dingleberry to reduce crime, we feel that excessive regulation that keeps the law-abiding public unarmed for as long as possible will simply have to work.” Holy jumping turd maggots. Infinite Stoopid, minus 1.



The D.C. Council voted unanimously yesterday to give preliminary approval to legislation that would require gun owners to renew their registrations every three years and to notify police annually whether they still own guns.

The Fire Arms Registration Amendment, which would also ban assault weapons, was described as building on legislation passed by the council in September to adhere to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning the city’s 32-year handgun ban.
...
Yesterday’s gun legislation is the next step in the District’s gun control efforts. Its earlier attempts before the September legislation prompted a gun-rights activist to sue and the U.S. House of Representatives to pass legislation that would have all but stripped the city of its regulating authority. The lawsuit is pending; the congressional measure died in the Senate.

Since September, D.C. residents have been allowed to register magazine-loaded semiautomatic handguns as well as revolvers. The legislation banned magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Yesterday’s legislation would also require firearms owners to take a safety course and undergo a background check every six years.

After the vote, council member Phil Mendelson (D-At Large) said in a statement, “Today’s vote puts the District at the forefront of using regulation to reduce gun violence, rather than the simpler, prior approach of hoping that an outright ban will be effective.”
...
After last night’s meeting and in response to gun-rights advocates, Mendelson said in an interview, ”We have been mindful of the limitations set forth in the Supreme Court case, and the bill falls within that.” He said the bill also will be “refined” before the final vote.

There ya go. The good little tyrants who run DC have decided that the way to cooperate with the Heller decision is to enact every possible limitation right up to the very edge of what the SCOTUS declared. Which is pretty much exactly what I expected when the weak kneed Heller decision came out. The DC government (almost 100% Democrat I think) simply will not allow the citizens of that city (who happen to be mostly black people) to legally have guns. All guns registered, no “as designed” capacity magazines, permits only last 3 years, you have to tell Big Brother every year if you still own a gun, safety classes, and of course none of those Evil Black Rifles are allowed. Plus we have to check your ass out every 2 permits, because you’re probably a criminal just waiting to happen. Oh, did we mention there would be fees involved for all of this?

Maybe Obama will save them, and give them some real freedom. WTF, it’s not like they earned it. Don’t hold your breath.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
