Gun Rights Are Good For The Environment

by evanmcmurry

Calguns Foundation, which appears to be one of those wonderful organizations that fights any legislation related to guns, lest a couple of laws slip through that might momentarily inconvenience gun nuts to prevent mass shootings, wonders semi-seriously if waiting periods are hurting the environment:

Earlier today, Calguns Foundation filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Calfornia’s 10 day “waiting period” (which is really just a dressed-up 10-day ban on law-abiding gun owners’ ability to exercise their fundamental right to keep and bear arms). This is a significant piece of litigation that we’re very optimistic about; I think it’s safe to say that gun buyers and transferees have been making two trips for one gun far, far too long. (I wonder how big the 10-day ban’s carbon footprint is…) 

Later in the same post, the author notes that waiting periods discriminate against those reliant on public transportation. If Second Amendment organizations won’t stand up for the poor and the earth, who will?
