Brady Campaign lawsuits against online ammo dealers aim to cripple 2nd Amendment

At the very least, this suit is intended to lay the groundwork for making it impossible to buy ammunition online. Shoot any "oddball" calibers, that are unlikely to be found at any local shops? You're out of luck . . . and out of ammo. And that is the whole idea. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

If the anti-gun activists can't get what they want through legislation, they will try to get it with litigation. The frivolous lawsuits are obviously intended to bankrupt the firearms industry and drive the manufacturers and dealers out of business. Even if it is technically still legal to own a gun, you won't be able to buy one if no one is making or selling them.

A homicidal maniac murders innocent victims. The company that manufactured the rifle gets sued, and Congress passes a new law against ordinary citizens (who are not homicidal maniacs) owning so-called "assault weapons. Meanwhile, the killer spends six months in anger management counseling, then is released so that he can commit more crimes.

And it is not just with guns. A drunk driver causes a fatal traffic accident. The bartender goes to jail for serving him "one too many," the company that manufactured the car gets sued, and, meanwhile, the drunk driver pleads "no contest" to the DUI charge, gets a suspended sentence, and doesn't even lose his driver's license.

Crime gets blamed on everyone except criminals.

"Wanting to buy body armor is apparently evidence that one should not be able to buy body armor."

That's another catch-22 that anti-gun groups want to implement: anyone who wants to own armor (or weapons) "must be" a criminal or a psychotic, and therefore can't be allowed to own such equipment.

The federal Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits gun ownership by convicted felons, by people who are legally insane or incompetent, and by people who have been diagnosed as dangerously mentally ill. In principle, that makes perfect sense. But the problem is that anti-gun politicians and bureaucrats want to make the definition of "insanity" or "mental illness" so vague and broad that it can mean whatever they want. Then they could have their own in-house psychiatrists certify you as insane (or diagnose you as paranoid), thus rendering you legally ineligible to own a weapon. And the fact that you wanted to buy a gun (or body armor) in the first place would be the "proof" that you must be mentally ill.
