In a protest against new gun laws, more than 100 firearms dealers say they will stop selling guns to government and law enforcement officials in New York and other states unless those same firearms are also available to average citizens.
Gun-control laws don't reduce crime, but they do reduce employment. Some governors don't care and are pushing for more pointless statutes that put their citizens' jobs on the line. Smarter governors sense the opportunity to poach a few manufacturers from their colleagues.
Six states are eager to capitalize on last month's horrific shooting of schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn. New York's quick-draw Gov. Andrew Cuomo was the first to craft a gun-control package behind closed doors and ram it into law within a matter of days.
A weapons industry group based in the Connecticut town where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults last month is opening a Las Vegas Strip trade show Tuesday that's expected to draw tens of thousands of manufacturers and enthusiasts.
Anti-gun politicians are wasting no time while the Newtown, Conn., school shootings are still fresh in Americans' minds. The White House task force on gun violence will issue recommendations on Tuesday, and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said President Obama might bypass Congress and implement unpopular gun-control measure through executive orders.
President Obama's re-election has sent Americans running to the gun stores. Sales of firearms and ammunition are way up in reaction to Mr. Obama saying during the debates he wants to ban everything from "cheap handguns" to common hunting rifles with scary-looking features.
The top of the ticket isn't the only important choice gun owners face next Tuesday. Many voters will have the opportunity to thwart state-level leftists who have busied themselves battering the right to keep and bear arms.
President Obama is in a fix over firearms. He needs to win undecided voters in the swing states to be re-elected, but these areas are largely pro-gun. So after years of trying to dodge the issue, Mr. Obama let it slip in Tuesday's presidential debate that he'd push a gun ban in a second term.
Should President Obama win in November, it's a certainty he'll try once again to ban lead ammunition. Just two months after he moved into the White House, the National Park Service suddenly announced it was banning lead bullets from its parks.
