A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.

“If fake news that’s being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it’s not surprising that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect.” — President Barack Obama, himself the king of fake news when it comes to guns and the Second Amendment.

“It’s going to be a challenge. That said, I’m committed to proposing this every legislative session until it does pass.” —Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, explaining his zeal to ban so-called “assault weapons”—guns used in only 1.5 percent of the murders in the state.

“Now, it’s time for Las Vegas-area lawmakers to go a step further to protect Nevadans and push to ban the sale of high-capacity magazines in the state.” — Editorial in the Las Vegas Sun, proving—right on the heels of passage of “universal background checks—that no matter what gun-control measure is approved, antis will always ask for more.

“It’s more likely, though, that in his incredible arrogance, [President Obama] simply couldn’t resist giving one more middle finger to America’s law-abiding gun owners on his way out.” — A1F Daily Editor Mark Chesnut in a feature about President Barack Obama sending the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty to the U.S. Senate for consideration.

“The sportsmen and women of this nation have long waited for an Interior Secretary who understands the need to preserve America’s outdoor heritage for generations to come.” — NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox, praising President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke to run the Department of the Interior.
