As I've written before, one of the things the Left has sought to do as a result of the Tucson shootings is push through gun control legislation, such as a bill to ban specific gun magazine clips from the notorious gun control zealot, New York Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. There's also been an effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to tighten regulations on gun dealers in the southern border states.
Interestingly, the reaction has been negative, especially the BATFE action, which has drawn opposition from even several Democrats in Congress. It shouldn't surprise me, considering the growing opposition to gun control nationally over the years, and it also shouldn't surprise me to see politicians and bureaucrats not letting a crisis go to waste here.
Anyway, the interesting thing about this post is that it's my 1000th post here on this blog. It's amazing how much I've written about, how much I've opined about in the time I've had this blog and other blogs. I hope in these 1000 posts lies proof of a good blog, and in the next 1000 posts, more proof will be shown.
