We in the world of the gun ask our political opponents huffily, "What is a junk gun
? What do you mean by 'Saturday Night Special'?" Let's take the latter concept first.
Unfortunately, the "junk gun
" push has spread to state legislatures.
When stand-alone laws on "junk guns
," ammo taxes, one-gun-a-month limits and registration restrictions couldn't pass, liberals had no option but to attach them as riders to popular, necessary legislation.
Administrators fear officers carrying junk guns
that'll go off if dropped?
So the state-level bans on inexpensive guns (a.k.a., "junk guns
" or "Saturday night specials") will have to go, along with the federal rules against the import of cheap guns.
