Scattered Shots

Authored by Tom Ozimek via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Two dozen Republican attorneys general have sent a letter to Visa, Mastercard, and American Express demanding the credit card companies abandon plans to track gun sales in the United States through firearm-specific transaction codes.

Credit card companies face pressure from gun control groups and lawmakers sympathetic to their cause to adopt new merchant category codes (MCC) for firearms, which now fall into the “general merchandise” category.

This, in turn, was prompted by a decision on the part of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a Switzerland-based group that sets and monitors quality standards for various industries,to establish firearm-specific codes.

Reacting to the ISO decision, Visa said in a statement that it would “proceed with next steps, while ensuring we protect all legal commerce on the Visa network in accordance with our long-standing rules.”

From ZeroHedge

United Parcel Service (UPS), one of the largest US package delivery companies, has changed shipping regulations that will hurt small to medium-sized gun manufacturers.

AmmoLand Newsobtained a letter that UPS sent customers in the firearms industry specifying how as of Aug. 29, shipments of at least 50 handguns per day had to be sustained to use its 2nd Day Air service. Sellers who did not meet new service volume requirements risk losing their shipping accounts.

“Under the new agreement, UPS is only required to give customers a ten-day notice before cutting them off from the shipping service,” AmmoLand’s John Crump said.

Crump explained: “The volume necessary means that most online retailers and manufacturers are now cut off from shipping guns through the carrier unless the handgun is shipped using the expensive Next Day Air service.”

UPS told customers it “updated its policy to adhere to nationwide regulations…

Texas News: Federal judge says Texas CANNOT BAN 18- to 20-year-olds from carrying Handguns

Federal judge says Texas Can’t Ban 18- to 20-year-olds from carrying handguns

 

If after 30 days some liberal court doesn’t appeal this and get it struck down this will be a HUGE win for those that truly believe in the 2A.

Age restriction for firearm possession or ownership is contradictory to the Second Amendment.

If you can be 18 and join the U.S. Military and go and fight for your country well then that same country should damn well afford you the right to purchase and carry a handgun to defend yourself at 18 years of age.

FBI Arrest of Florida Man for Short-Barreled Rifle Showcases Absurdity of NFA

FBI Arrest of Florida Man for Short-Barreled Rifle Showcases Absurdity of NFA

 

Two things you can take away from this story:

  1. The National Firearms Act (NFA) is one of the most backwards, useless, ridiculous and UNCONSTITUTIONAL pieces of gun legislation ever passed in the History of the U.S. Gubmint. If you do your homework you will find the Short Barrelled Rifle (SBR) Provision alone has been responsible for the vast majority of BULLSHIT FIREARMS arrest and indictments in the last forty-years than any other piece of draconian gun legislation on the books. As if a weapon whose barrel length is anything under the magic sixteen inches is somehow more dangerous and destructive or God forbid, adding a stock to such a weapon! Once more how the Government profits from this unconstitutional mandate of a $200 “stamp tax” per weapon is ILLEGAL in every respect according to the Second Amendment.

  2. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER Show your Firearms to Strangers or Go Shooting with Strangers. That may sound paranoid but look at the facts: Government informers and Federal goon agents seem to be popping up everywhere there is anything remotely associated with so-called “Right Wing” hobbies and activities and yeah you guessed it, Firearms ownership is #1 on the list.

Prepare Accordingly.

It’s Only gonna get worse from here on.
