Bloomberg’s gun control mouth piece The Trace reports this morning that a group of Democratic Representatives in Congress has sent a letter to Biden urging him to appoint a gun control CZAR. Of course they call it a “gun violence” czar. In the letter, the group cites the “record level” of gun ownership as one of the reasons that the country needs this new appointee. Folks, every pro-rights group including the NRA, Second Amendment Foundation, and the Firearms Policy Coalition, is pointing out that Biden is going to do something, it’s just a matter of when. If you are not a member of all of the groups mentioned, as well as your state firearms association and other state groups, you need to do it now. For all of the talk about the NRA and their bankruptcy etc, I know personally that NRA was very active during the 2021 Session of the General Assembly as were the Virginia Shooting Sports Association (VSSA), VCDL, and this year a representative of the Liberal Gun Club even spoke during committee meetings. Don’t let anyone tell you NRA isn’t doing anything because they are and they still need our support because more times than not, they were the first ones called on to speak in committee meetings during the just completed Legislative session.

Another local Richmond television station (WRIC TV8) ran a segment last night on gun sales – this time the angle is the run is a by-product of the Obama election victory.  Before the stories were how people were preparing for a possible Obama win.  Gun owner fears were correct – yesterday the Official Transistion web site went live and under “Agenda” you will find a section on “Urban Policy” and under that section you will find a section on “Crime and Law Enforcement.”  That section states:

Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn’t have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

ABC Nightline ran a segment last night on the surge in gun sales as a reaction by gun owners to the Obama Victory. 

AR-15s appear to be in short supply according to the story.  They also had to take the “drive-by” swipe at the NRA saying the organization had scared gun owners into believing Obama was going to take our guns.  Shouldn’t expect anything less from the media.  Fact is NRA never said Obama was going to take our guns – they did warn that he would do everything he could to make it harder to buy new ones – guns like semi-auto firearms.  NRA was right.

I said Obama would try to strike while the iron was hot and it appears I was correct.

Gun Owners, we are in for a rough four years.

Update: A gun shop owner in Arizona was interviewed for a Reuters story and he shares my thoughts on this issue:

I’d rather that (Republican Sen. John) McCain got in and there’s not a big scare and we just followed our normal sales,” Chee told Reuters, rather than say right now we are going to make a lot of money for a few months, and then in a few months, possibly, our business could be shut down.
