"Big Bullet-Blasting Boxes"

I kid you not. It has really come this.

From the Brady Campaign's 17 Point Plan:

  • Close the" Gun Show" Loophole: Extend Brady Background Checks to All Gun Purchases
  • Close the Terror Gap: Prohibit Gun Sales to Suspected Terrorists
  • Stop the Sale of Large Capacity Ammunition Magazines (aka Big Bullet-Blasting Boxes)
  • Restore Justice to Gun Violence Victims: Repeal the Gun Industry Legal Protection Act
  • Repeal Tiahrt Restrictions on Disclosure of Crime Gun Data
  • Require Licensing of Gun Owners and Registration of Gun Purchases
  • Strengthen ATF Authority to Regulate Gun Dealers and Crack Down on Corrupt Dealers
  • Require Gun Owners to Report Lost or Stolen Guns
  • Improve the National Violent Death Reporting System Date, and restore firearms research funding for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Restrict Large-Volume Gun Sales
  • Require Licensed Dealers to Adopt Safeguards to Prevent Gun Thefts
  • Require Licensed Dealers to Perform Background Checks on Employees
  • Prohibit The Transfer of Gun Inventory Without Background Checks After a Dealer's License Has Been Revoked
  • Prohibit Gun Possession by People Convicted of Violent Misdemeanors
  • Prohibit Gun Possession by Persons Convicted of Violent Acts as Juveniles
  • Repeal the 24-hour Brady Record Destruction Requirement
  • Support new technologies to help law enforcement more effectively trace crime guns and supporting development of safety features to childproof guns

If I didn't know any better, i'd think the Brady Campaign was run by a bunch of spoiled 12 year olds with an entitlement complex. And quite frankly, that's probably not too far off. If Colin Goddard is their new public face, I can only imagine what sort of liberal arts C-students are doing the actual work.

Latching on to idiotic, hyperbolic terms is nothing new in the gun-control/ban movement. "Big Bullet-Blasting Boxes" joins the likes of "Big Boomers", "Vest Busters", "Bullet Hoses", and of course the ever hilarious "Pocket Rocket".
