    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    The Air Force failure to report the shooter's five infractions to the ATF and FBI database is the place I would place the blame instead of a sales clerk not understanding Colorado gun laws and reciprical agreements between states.

    Be interesting to see how this plays out. As I read it, the Feds are saying that Academy in Texas committed a federal offense by not enforcing a state law from Colorado. I'm not an attorney but I don't think this is legally permissible.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Hmmm?.......I guess that's "par for the course"?

    I'm beginning to believe that "Dumb and Dumber" might be more than just a stupid movie.

    Never ceases to amaze me what the lawyers will come up with to protect a client, in this case the feds.

    Magazines are not an FFL item. If the clerk had been on the ball and removed the 30 round mag from the bundle and sold the monster the gun that he was allowed to buy because the government couldn't do their job right, he could have simply gone down the street to another shop and purchased a couple of dozen 30 round magazines.

    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    You mean the Feds...not Texas...I think?

    No worries. Academy is big enough to take care of itself.

    Sounds like a liberal San Antonio judge got carried away with legislating from the bench. I'll bet you a shiny nickel that it's overturned on appeal.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Another case of the feds not doing their job and passing the blame with no accountability.
