Obama's Dream: Have Wal-Mart Help Him Ban Guns

Item 1: Obama is plotting to lay the groundwork for a universal ban on all firearms:

Quote:
A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

Item 2: Obama wants Wal-Mart to help him do it:

Quote:
One potential strategy would be to win support for specific measures from interest groups that are normally aligned with the NRA, according to one person who works closely with the administration on gun-related issues and who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity.

For instance, this person suggested, Wal-Mart and other major gun retailers may have an incentive to support closing a loophole that allows people to bypass background checks if they purchase firearms at gun shows or through other types of private sales. That could result in more people buying guns in retail stores.

I wonder if Wal-Mart knows what happened to Smith & Wesson.

It wasn't superb for Smith & Wesson when they tried to sell out the American people. Nor was it superb for the Democratic Party last time they tried to do so.

If the Democrats want to try again, and if Wal-Mart chooses to join the effort, neither one of them will find this round to be any more superb than the last round was for its participants.

That said, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Just because Obama has a silly fantasy about crushing American freedom with the help of Wal-Mart, that does not mean Wal-Mart has any intention of helping him do so.

Let's only blame Wal-Mart for what they actually choose to do.

But that gets back to my original musing: I wonder if Wal-Mart knows what happened to Smith & Wesson.

I kind of like the idea of gun owners in the USA boycotting all suppliers. It'll make for an interesting landscape.

Smith & Wesson is no longer under boycott. We forced the European holding company that owned them to sell them off at a huge loss, and their new owners would never think of betraying the American people.

It wouldn't be all suppliers.

It might not be any suppliers. I'm sure the lesson of Smith & Wesson is still ringing in the ears of the gun industry. Obama may well not get even a single company to sign on as a co-conspirator in his plot to destroy America.

At the worst, all we will have to to is take down one or two companies. The rest will fall in line quickly enough after that.



We also may not see very many legislators willing to follow Obama off a cliff. We've already seen strong signals from the House Democrats that they are not at all interested in an assault weapons ban.

Still, just as with gun industry boycotts, we'll need to be ready to vote some people out of office and destroy some careers, just in case we need to set some more examples.

It's more than a passing interest...
I do quite a bit of business with businesses based in Canada, they produce some high quality gun accessories.

Canadians have also purchased quite a few gun accessories from me.

I wish them the best of luck. I hold no ill will towards the company under its current ownership.
