NRA President says there will be no “assault weapon” ban

On Sunday NRA President David Keene told Candy Crowley that there is no support in Congress for a new ban.

Meanwhile, Charlie Shumer asks retailers to voluntarily put the brakes on the sales bonanza he and his gun grabbing cohort created.

Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.

Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.

The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.

    Feinstein and Schumer are in Congress, I do believe they would support a total firearms ban as they have repeatedly touted. As for the rest of the congress critters a lot of them are held in check by the threat of the loss of support of gun owners.
    It they thought they could retain power if they supported a total ban I believe they would indeed do so.
    If prezzy touts a exorder with any type of ban I do not think they would stand up against the order and overturn it, they would just ignore it or blame it on prezzy in the next election cycle and hope voters were continuing idiots and leave them in office.
    One reason I never forgive a pol a bad vote on gun rights issues is cause a leopard never changes it’s spots.

      If Obama tried a ban via XO, we wouldn’t make it to the next election cycle as a nation.

      Besides, I’d like to believe that many of them would stand up, immediately.

    New York state, on the other hand, is going full retard.

    People familiar with the internal negotiations say Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders have a tentative deal to enact the nation’s first gun control measure following the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

    The tentative agreement would further restrict New York’s ban on assault weapons and limit the size of magazines to seven bullets, rather than the current 10.

    Wow. Seven instead of three. I bet the people of New York are relieved about tens of thousands of 10 round magazines becoming illegal and the need to find non existent seven round magazines.

    Not to sure of source but CNS online says wal mart (largest gun retailer in US) said they will not order more ammo pending outcome of negioations, they are selling of inventories but won’t reorder, course it could be they are just waiting for prices to fall from the stratosphere or are afraid of being caught with a couple million rounds in stock that they will be suddenly prohibited from selling because of some prick politicians
