    Home shopping network for guns launching next month

    For decades, Americans have had the leisurely option to purchase items from the comfort of their home after seeing them on television. Networks like QVC and the Home Shopping Network often display and discuss products like jewelry, home décor, and even kitchen odds and ends for at home customers to call in and buy.











    However, this January, a new sort of home shopping channel with no sense of timing at all will launch in the United States: Gun TV.
    Besides the firearms themselves, Gun TV will offer ammunition, clothing, and concealed-carry holsters, presented by gun experts onscreen. The network promises that anyone from ex-Olympic marksmen to former military sharpshooters will provide demonstrations.
    All buyers need to do to order a weapon is keep an eye out for a gun that fits their price range, and then call the number on television (or order online, which is another dangerously easy option). The gun or other items will then be shipped from the wholesale retailer to the buyer's closest federally licensed gun seller. A mandatory background check into the customer's criminal and mental health records will need to be completed (you can learn more about that here) before the customer can take home the firearm.
    As one might expect, reactions to the new network vary. Valerie Castle, a co-founder for Gun TV tells the Guardian, "We saw an opportunity in filling a need, not creating one," adding that "the vast majority" of gun owners are responsible.
    Not everyone is quick to agree.
    "The thing that's wrong with this is that it's a very serious decision when you bring a gun into your home," Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence in San Francisco responded. "So many people are killed by guns every day in the US; we need to think long and hard about this. My gut reaction is that it's the last thing we need."
    To supplement obvious concerns, Gun TV plans to air three whole minutes of safety oriented programming per hour, saying that its aim is to "responsibly offer extraordinary access to purchase the most diverse representation of firearms in the world." For those wondering, considering that an average hour-long TV show has about 14 minutes worth of commercial breaks, that three minute safety video should equate to roughly 6.5 percent of their hourly programming.
    Gun TV is scheduled to go live on January 20, 2016 to cable TV providers and via national satellite. The network will at first broadcast from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. PST, with the plan to expand to daily 12 hour programming. The long term goal is to run 24 hours a day.
    "The gun sales environment in America is fertile," a promotional video on their site states, "and the Gun TV 24-hour direct sales network is poised to capitalize on that opportunity."

    Mass Shooting Delusions

    Two days after the massacre in San Bernardino, Marco Rubio said something that most gun control supporters probably thought was outrageous. The Florida senator, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, told CBS News "none of the major shootings that have occurred in this country over the last few months or years" would have been prevented by the gun laws proposed in response to them.
    The idea that "assault weapon" bans can prevent mass shootings is clearly a fantasy. The vast majority of guns used in these attacks—86 percent, according to a tally by Mother Jones—do not qualify as "assault weapons," an arbitrary category defined by military-style features such as folding stocks, pistol grips, and flash suppressors. Even if a law could magically eliminate the millions of "assault weapons" already in circulation, it would leave plenty of equally lethal alternatives.

    Poll: Support for assault weapons ban drops to lowest level in 20 years - POLITICO


    For the first time in more than 20 years, support for a ban on assault weapons dipped below 50 percent.

    Just 45 percent of those polled in an ABC News/Washington Post survey out Wednesday, support a ban — the lowest number in more than two decades. Fifty-three percent are opposed to such a ban, the largest plurality yet.

    While I put no faith in polls as they usually only involve a small number of people, if this poll were even close to being accurate 45% is still too damn many people who are clueless on what the term "assault weapon" actually means.

    Yeah, but look who did the poll, and it still came out on top.

    Inconsistent use of statistics in support of an AWB


    This week, in an editorial titled "Don't Blame Mental Illness for Gun Violence," The New York Times noted that "less than 5 percent of gun homicides between 2001 and 2010 were committed by people with diagnoses of mental illness." The week before last, in a front-page editorial titled "End the Gun Epidemic in America," the Times urged Congress to ban "the slightly modified combat rifles used in California," a.k.a. "assault weapons" (although the rifles used in the San Bernardino massacre did not qualify for that label under California law). FBI data indicate that rifles in general, which include many guns that are not considered "assault weapons," were used in about 2 percent of homicides (and 3 percent of gun homicides) last year.

    New York Legislators Propose Another Unenforceable Ammunition Limit


    The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that the bill, introduced by Sen. Roxanne Persaud and Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon, would make it illegal for a gun owner to purchase more than twice "the capacity of the weapon" in any three-month period. Since the SAFE Act bans possession of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds (including those previously grandfathered), that means the maximum amount of ammunition that could be legally purchased for any given weapon would be 20 rounds every 90 days. As the Eagle notes, the 90-day limit might be lower. It would be 12 rounds for a six-shot revolver, for example, and two rounds (I assume) for a single-shot, bolt-action rifle. That does not allow for much target practice.

    Yeah, I haven't had much time to make the rounds lately, but this came on my radar and made me go "WTF" for a moment.
