Chuck Schumer Asks Retailers for Moratorium on Gun Sales

It begins.

Sen. Chuck Schumer asked gun retailers to suspend sales of assault weapons today in a letter.
13WHAM reported, via Free Republic:

Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.

Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.

The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.

    Damn, they really do hate freedom. Letting people decide for themselves what is in their best interests is so antithetical to the Government-is-god mantra so happily sung by our enslavers.

    I suppose it’s an exercise in futility to point out that an “assault weapon” can be any object used to strangle, beat, or stab a victim. To let the left continue to mis-use the term is getting more than a little annoying.

    This from an idiot that once wanted to ban assault pistols. Sorry Charlie, no can do. I hope none of these retailers cave. That will just embolden them.

    So, we had better be buying the by the truckload.

    Can we also not pay taxes while Congress debates those?

    I’m surprised.

    France hits Mali — Fast-movers and choppers bomb at least five towns/villages/nudt-hut collections……… No word on casualties.

    One of the typical Muslim bosses there orders open season on all French nationals world-wide.

    #HeilObama orders assistance given to France in the form of comm gear and transport……… Drones have been offered.

    Hint: This heah tain’t ’bout simply gettin’ rid of some peace-loving MooseLimb Quranimals…… No suh, tain’t.

    Big picture time, y’all.

    No…… B I G G E R.

    Retailers: if you agree, you will be boycotted. To start with. Then we’ll start calling your suppliers for non-gun products and demand they stop trading with the enemies of freedom. We’ll call our representatives and ask for punitive legislation against you. We’ll show up at city council meetings to oppose permits for new stores, expansions, or anything else you want. We’ll launch environmental lawsuits against you. We’ll try to help your employees unionize. We’ll do anything we legally can to hurt you. Consider yourselves warned.

    So when are they going to ask the drug cartels to stop sending drugs until they work out some new law that they would not follow anyways. Or when are they going to ask illegal immigrants not to trespass in the US until the immigration reform is done.

    The could stop selling but they already have enough orders for two years of production oh, that was just the weed that they are selling not the new guns.

  • man_in_tx

    Only one logical response:….. Sell! Sell! And sell, some more!

  • Fu#k Obama

    A peaceful move to stop the militia from arming?

    We will be at war when Imam Obama decrees that millions of law abiding citizens are now criminals with the stroke of his pen….

    Hey Upchuck… Can you asswipes stop the spending while you work out a balanced budget ??????

    #8 Kenny: the other day said he was leaving GP because it was nothing more than an echo chamber.

    Have to agree.

    Eg. pages and pages of whining about what Piers Morgan said. Jeez.

    Obama just banned ammunition sales – nobody comments.
    Islam declares war on France – nobody cares.
