Threat to private gun sales might be greater than threat to 'assault weapons'

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has (in)famously pushed hard to close the "gun show loophole," (Rick Santorum is another supposedly "conservative Republican" who has advocated closing the mythical "loophole") and even as late as 2008, at the NRA convention, stated that he believed "an accurate, fair and instant background check at guns shows is a reasonable requirement." Even so, the NRA endorsed him for president mere months afterward.

As the Sipsey Street Irregulars' Mike Vanderboegh frequently states, "Not even King George the Third was so grasping" as to attempt to impose such intrusive control over private commerce between individuals. Even so, patriotic Americans--before the term "Americans" really had much meaning--fought and won a seemingly unwinnable war to get out from under his tyranny.

That kind of defiant spirit is desperately needed in America once again. [More]
