    After reiterating that President Hugo Chávez’s health is looking grave, Venezuela’s vice president lashed out at the country’s “enemies” and expelled two U.S. diplomats whom he accused of spying on the country’s military.

    At a press conference on Tuesday, Vice President Nicolás Maduro also pointed to the U.S. and other foreign countries of somehow poisoning Chávez with cancer.

    Looks like the Dems want a war in Colorado:

    Colorado: Sweeping Gun Control Legislation Passes Senate Committees

    Yesterday, despite overwhelming public opposition present, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee voted to advance the most sweeping and extreme package of Second Amendment-infringing legislation in Colorado history.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee, by a 3-2 vote, advanced the following anti-gun bills:
    •House Bill 1224 – Bans magazines with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds.
    •Senate Bill 196 – Holds all manufacturers, distributors and owners of any rifle — excluding bolt-action — they produce, sell or use, liable if that gun is misused to harm another person. The definition of an “assault weapon” subject to liability in SB 196 includes a single shot or double-barreled shotgun and any break-open rifle as well as every semi-automatic rifle and shotgun. This is a backdoor to banning legal firearms and is in direct violation of the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

    Also by a 3-2 vote, the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee passed the following anti-gun bills:
    • House Bill 1226 – Repeals current law allowing individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus.
    • House Bill 1228 – Imposes a “gun tax” for a background check when purchasing a firearm.
    • House Bill 1229 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm.

    With the same lightening speed as the House when it passed four of these measures, all five bills above are expected to be on the Senate floor for a second reading this Friday.

    Even though tens of thousands of pro-gun supporters have voiced their opposition to these measures through public testimony, calls, e-mails and rallies, Governor John Hickenlooper seems to think that your voice is in the minority. When asked about the outpouring number of individuals who have been showing up in Denver to oppose these anti-gun bills, Hickenlooper said, “Not only do they not represent the middle, I don’t think they represent the Republican party. I don’t think they represent a large number of people.”

    Hickenlooper can join Chavez in hell. This bullshit is being run out of DC by OFA, and NYC by Bloomberg. Those are “the people” he represents.

    Yes. And Hickenlooper will sign it.

    We held the state House by 1 seat until November. Now the Dems control everything, and they’re running it the same way Reid and Pelosi ran things in 2009-10.

    Hundreds of people showed up to oppose all these bills in the committee hearings, and they all passed on straight party-line votes. The opposition was all from out of state (like Mark Kelly, who showed up yesterday).

    Hugo Chavez of Venezuela is now an ex-looter.

    He’s not pining! He’s passed on! This looter is no more! He has ceased to be! He’s expired and gone to meet his maker! He’s a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! If he hadn’t been nailed to the hospital bed he’d be pushing up the daisies! His metabolic processes are now history! He’s off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket, He’s shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bloody choir infernal!! THIS IS AN EX-Looter!!

    Jimmy Carter:
    “We came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized.

    “Although we have not agreed with all of the methods [!] followed by his government, we have never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment to improving the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen.

    “President Chávez will be remembered for his bold assertion of autonomy and independence for Latin American governments and for his formidable communication skills and personal connection with supporters in his country and abroad to whom he gave hope and empowerment.”

    And he’s not the only one.

    I’m reading this POS our Senate is about to pass on liability. It’s the most insane collection of garbage I’ve ever seen.

    First, they define an “assault weapon” as anything other than a handgun, a bolt action rifle, or a pump shotgun. All semi-auto rifles and shotguns are now “assault weapons.”

    And I love this part:

    (2) A PERSON WHO SELLS OR TRANSFERS AN ASSAULT WEAPON IS DEEMED TO BE AWARE:
    (a) THAT ASSAULT WEAPONS ARE SOUGHT AFTER BY AND ARE USEFUL FOR CRIMINALS, MASS KILLERS, AND THOSE WITH CRIMINAL INTENT BUT ARE RARELY NECESSARY FOR LAWFUL PURPOSES; AND
    (b) OF THE EXTREME LIKELIHOOD THAT AN ASSAULT WEAPON THAT IS SOLD OR TRANSFERRED WILL BE USED IN A CRIME OR WILL RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

    They added a new requirement for anyone (including a private person) selling what they call an “assault weapon”:

    SELL, TRANSFER, OR DISTRIBUTE AN ASSAULT WEAPON ONLY AFTER RECEIVING SUFFICIENT COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION TO HAVE REASONABLE GROUNDS TO BELIEVE THAT THE WEAPON WILL NOT BE POSSESSED OR USED BY A PERSON WHO MAY USE IT UNSAFELY OR UNLAWFULLY.

    Now, they failed to define what amounts to “sufficient communication and information” to determine this. That leads me to believe that the fact that the prospective buyer passed a background check isn’t enough.

    They did put an out in here, though. You can transfer those nasty “assault weapons” to a law enforcement agency, which will dispose of them for you (for a fee), and issue you a form that says you’re no longer liable.

    Wow.

    Right.

    I can’t imagine that this mess would actually withstand a court challenge, particularly the part about holding manufacturers and dealers liable. It directly contradicts a federal law, after all.

    I love the way they subtly shifted the burden of proof to the owner or seller of a gun, though. You’re only liable if you didn’t take “reasonable precautions,” without defining them. Obviously, if someone steals your gun or commits a crime after buying it, you must not have taken enough precautions.


  51. BatGuano
    52 | March 5, 2013 9:37 pm

    I have no direct knowledge of fully automatic weapons. A question to you more knowledgeable gun owners:If you had a fully automatic weapon and wanted to kill as many people as possible, would you use it in fully or semi-auto mode? I understand that in fully automatic mode you would be out of ammo quickly.


  52. lobo91
    53 | March 5, 2013 9:40 pm

    @ BatGuano:

    If you actually want to hit anything, you use semi-auto, with very few exceptions (such as special ops troops clearing a building using specialized weapons like an MP-5).

    The only real purpose for full-auto fire is to suppress the enemy. Someone uses a machinegun to keep their heads down, while others sneak around their flank.


  53. BatGuano
    54 | March 5, 2013 9:43 pm

    @ lobo91:
    The burden of proof has been shifted to the extent that the seller must have positive proof (which is impossible) that the weapon will not be used in a crime. That is like saying if you sell a car you must have positive proof that the buyer will not drive while drunk or use it as a get away car after a robbery.

    For an idea of how useful full-auto fire is to most people, one of the differences between the Vietnam-era M16A1 and the later models is that the former has the ability to fire on uncontrolled full-auto, and the newer models don’t. They have a 3 round burst setting in its place.

    @ BatGuano:

    The classic Thompson SMG was designed with one purpose in mind, which was to serve as a “trench broom.” The automatic weapons commonly in use in WWI were big, heavy belt-fed things, and not very portable. The SMG, like the short-barrelled shotgun, was useful for the rather specialized circumstances of the time--a bunch of people in a small area.

    @ BatGuano:

    The average ammo expenditure during Vietnam was 12,000 rounds fired per enemy KIA.

    Unknown numbers of monkeys and leaves were killed, however.

    The M16A2/M4 fire fast enough that if you’re aiming center of mass at someone and fire a 3 round burst, you’ll probably hit them with all 3 rounds before the muzzle rises enough to pull you off target.

    Look at the definition of a “shotgun” that starts at the bottom of page 4. It actually specifies “loaded manually by pump action.” Anything that doesn’t fit that definition is now an “assault weapon.”

    Yes, whoever wrote this POS is a moron.

    @ lobo91:

    So, if it’s not “loaded manually by pump action” even Joe Biden’s beloved double barrel side by side becomes an “assault weapon”?

    I swear, California has some dumbass libs but the combination of high altitude and strong cannabis really does
    a number on your Coloradicals.

    @ The Osprey:

    That’s what it says.

    Notice that they also made no exceptions by caliber. That means a Ruger 10/22 is now an “assault weapon,” too.

    Well, if you add “the shoulder thing that goes up” to it, of course it is!

    It’s like they are not even trying anymore. That’s why I asked my question, it would have made sense if you had simply redacted the obvious; as it is, this is Twilight Zone stuff. The Onion just really has no future; they can’t make up stuff as crazy as the crazies in the government are really doing.

    Rush used to say he ‘illustrated absurdity by being absurd’. Too bad the absurdity of reality has trumped even the absurdity tried to prepare us for.

    I think my favorite part was where they made the kind offer to relieve people of the awesome burden of having these terribly dangerous weapons around--for a fee.

    It’s almost as if the left took Rush’s absurdity as a goal rather than as mocking humor.

    Mighty decent of them, isn’t it? Why just imagine the privilege of being able to pay the state to take that $1500 AR off of your hands. We just don’t deserve such benevolence.

    And I notice that they used the term “dispose of” rather than “destroy” with regard to what they would do with it.

    Yeah, they’ll dispose of it, all right. By selling it to someone in a state that doesn’t have insane laws.

    I’d really like someone to investigate who’s paying for Mark Kelly’s travels around the country preaching gun control. That asshole’s shown up twice in Denver in the last two weeks to testify in favor of Bloomberg-backed bills.

    Got my two Gun control messages off today to local politicians. Going to hit up all the GoP governors this week. TFK says I need money to make an impact but this is the best I can do at the moment.

    A lot of very strong forces here coming together to work over gun control legislation. They won’t take a soft no for an answer.

    I suspect that the supply in Mexico is running a bit low by now, so Colorado can start working with ATF to get the supply chain restarted
