    Opinion | It’s not the guns, it’s the ammunition

    https://www.courant.com/opinion/op-e...ufy-story.html

    Today, one can walk into a gun shop and purchase, for instance, a .22, .38 or .44-caliber handgun. Most firearms are built to accommodate one size round only. Here’s what would happen if the manufacture of today’s standard-size rounds were outlawed, and .21, .37, or .43-caliber rounds took their place: Eventually, gun owners would run out of the old ammo, and their weapons would become paperweights.

    With an internet connection just about anyone can publish any idea or opinion no matter how silly it might be. Got to try and get that 15 minutes of fame.

    Yeah...'cuz ammo manufacturers will be "all over" making ammo for non-existent guns.... making ammo BEFORE the guns that fire it exist... to "force" gun owners to buy new guns for the new ammo. What the actual ***k??

    ****ing brilliant, this guy is!

    The mental midget that wrote this obviously does not know about reloading and is not aware that some of us have several thousand rounds of ammunition reserves. Oh, that and the proposal would be unconstitutional, as if that mattered.

    I don't know...
    I think I heard something even dumber on my drive into work.

    NPR ran a short segment about how Mojave County, Arizona, by unanimous vote of the County's Board of Supervisors, declared the County to be a Second Amendment sanctuary.
    See: https://www.azmirror.com/blog/mohave...ent-sanctuary/
    The NPR reporter went on to explain that it means the County won't authorize the use of any county funds, employees or other resources "for the purpose of enforcing laws that unconstitutionally infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms".

    BUT THEN, NPR quoted the Giffords Law Center as claiming that 2A sanctuaries are bad, and as proof, offered that those 2A-friendly State and Counties which have passed non-binding "2A Sanctuary" resolutions have higher gun violence in the form of higher numbers of gun suicides.

    THEY DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO MENTION WHAT THE RATES OF GUN SUICIDES WERE IN THOSE JURISDICTIONS BEFORE THE 2A-FRIENDLY SANCTUARY RESOLUTIONS WERE PASSED!
    It's just very carefully worded to make the average listener think there's a correlation.

    Journalism is DEAD.
