    That horse has already left the barn.

    I can just hear it now: "What's this unintended consequences concept you speak of?"

    Selling what? They have not reached unicorn status yet, but they are darn hard to find right now.

    I guess one thing Ol' Chuckie can do is go to multiple gun stores, see that they aren't selling any "modern assault-style weapons" (mainly because they're sold out), and feel really good about the power he wields because sellers are obviously heeding his call for restraint.

    Restraint, eh? A shop owner's supposed to restrain himself or herself, sales-wise ... what, because others believe that "over" selling of the product is a bad thing? I can half see the logic of "restraining" sales in situations where it's apparently a bad guy (ie, via the NICS check, or someone completely off his rocker in the store). But otherwise, I can't see how someone's concern over product X, Y or Z holds any water.

    My suggestion to such busy-bodies: Want to change things? Freedom's a wonderful thing. You've got the freedom to push your reps for a new Constitutional amendment. And I've got the freedom to push just as hard on the basis of realizing that our ultimate freedom depends on us remaining free, and a HUGE part of that is the 2A. Short of that ... butt out of my shop's business.

    Chuck is a tool, and a worthless one to boot... I can't see his request having any kind of meaningful impact. In fact, I'd be surprised if even one retailer obliged him. Guy's such a dork....

    Schumer: Please restrain you sales while we pass legislation that will put you out of business.
    Retailer: Yea, right.

    I was going to sell an old 30-round mag that I don't need any more on GunBroker. But since Mr. Schumer asked me not to.....

    So while they figure out what to do about taxes can I refrain from paying them until a solution is found?

    Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
