There's Always An Inlet Or A Fjord

File under "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, thrice is..."

I cannot help but notice that every time we start making headway in Congress, some nutter goes off and derails it.

The nutter always seems to be of Democratic bent.

FFS this is getting to be too damn consistent.

I don't like conspiracy theories for serious, but the seeming consistent timing is sure stressing Occam's Razor and random nutter.

  1. It is frustrating that the same idiotic crap gets rolled out every time one of these left wing nutbags goes on a rampage in a designated victim area. Apparently in VA they aren't allowed to carry in a sports complex like that. Here in TX we can as long as it isn't a professional, college or high school sporting event on "game day". So an amateur event or practice would not be a problem as long as the facility was not otherwise prohibited (and most places owned by a state, county or municiple entity are not allowed to prohibit carry unless it is a secured location like a court room. If one or more of the participants had been able to carry the shooting might have been over much more quickly because there would have been backup for the two LEOs who luckily were there. Anyway, predictibly the left are trotting out the same "sensible gun control" that wouldn't have changed anything or maybe would have made it worse. Background checks? Really? The guy was from Illinois which already has them. Gun show loophole? Nope, not in Ill, so not a factor here. Waiting periods? Wouldn't have mattered as apparently what he had was brought with him months ago from Ill. "Assault weapon ban"? Latest I've heard was he used an SKS. Which is mostly "featureless" (especially if the original bayonet is removed which it often is and the original 10 round fixed mag is retained) and legal even in places like CA which have draconian gun control laws. Pretty much none of the things that most of the Democrats are willing to suggest would have made a bit of difference. On the other hand, eliminating carry restrictions might have reduced the number of injuries.

    1. The SHARE and HPA was supposed to go to conference that morning.

      There was other pro-gun stuff on the move before Giffords and Sandy Hook as well.

    2. Yeah, it does seem convenient that the left finds a way to make things worse at just the critical moment. Too convenient for them.

  2. I've made the same note regarding SHARE and HPA being on track right up till then elsewhere. I hate being that tinfoil hatted but I don't know. Hoping Mr. Scalise comes through without any lasting issues and holds the course.

    1. I am especially upset that it appears HPA is dead. I'd really like to see the Hughes amendment to FOPA repealed, then GCA 1968 and NFA 1934 in their entireties. I know it is a long shot... but it is what the R's should do when they control everything and have a chance. Of course there are too many RINOs for it to be likely to ever happen... Alas.

    2. HPA is going away as a distinct bill, but that would have happened without the events of yesterday.

      HPA as part of SHARE might still make it, hunters still have a LOT of clout in DC.

      This has made scheduling it a pain in the ass.
