A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“Gun buyer background checks, micro-stamping of firearms and ammunition as a crime-busting tool, smart guns that only the owner can fire—and yes, licensing and registration—must ever so slowly become the norm.” — Philip Alpers, founding director of GunPolicy.org in a CNN op-ed.
“Americans are literally arming up for the election.” — Brady Campaign President Dan Gross, whining about the record-high gun sales his organization helped create by constantly pushing restrictive gun laws.
“That's kind of targeting a single business, wouldn't you say?” — Seattle gun shop owner Mike Coombs, whose shop’s huge decline in gun sales because of the city’s new $25 per gun sales tax has cost the city about $600,000 in revenue through the third quarter—proof that the new tax was about gun control, not finances.
“If we elect people who want to take our Second Amendment rights away from us, we’re at their mercy.” — Country music legend Charlie Daniels in a video supporting Donald Trump and encouraging gun owners to vote on Tuesday.
“The AR-15s are outpacing every other thing in my store right now. There are people coming in, buying three, five, six at a time.” — Ammo AZ owner Veerchart Murphy, explaining that the fear of a Hillary Clinton presidency is spurring a sales boom for America’s most popular rifle.
